The statements made in this book match what I have observed first hand among my male homosexual friends and coworkers. And the author makes clear that the book was written not out of bigotry or hatred, but out of a need to pursue the truth. The reasons some are homosexual and some are hetero is under-explored because of the anger such research inspires in members of the homosexual community.
To another reviewer-- I don't believe any book deserves to be recycled, especially not one as topical and well researched as this one.
Obviously, those who already strongly disagree that marriage is necessarily between one man and one woman aren't going to like the book, hence the negative reviews.
O'Leary rightly argues that the homosexual assault on marriage and family is part of a much bigger political and ideological onslaught which she terms the "Sexual Left". It is a good designation, and refers to a number of malicious fellow travellers: the sexual liberationists, the radical feminists, the pro-abortion crowd, the population control movement, and the homosexual lobby.
Together these various activist groups and social engineers have been causing great harm to not just marriage and family, but to children and religious freedom as well. In this book O'Leary shows just how all these things are under attack, and demonstrates the importance of heterosexual marriage.
As to the issue of homosexuality, O'Leary covers all the bases. She challenges a number of myths that have long been peddled by the homosexual lobby and its supporters. These include the claim that 1 in 10 is homosexual; that homosexuality is genetically based, that homosexuals cannot change; that all relationships are of equal value; that children do just fine raised in same-sex households; and that the Bible does not condemn committed homosexual relationships.
Each of these claims is examined in some detail and found to be without factual basis. Consider the issue of same-sex parenting. Is it really true that family structure makes no difference to the outcome of children? The social science data clearly shows that family structure does matter.Read more ›
