25 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Grover S. Stuart on August 10, 2009
Format: Paperback
I differ with the reviewers who rated the book poorly. Having personal acquaintance with members of a group is not necessary if writing about said group by studying the available literature. It's very common for sociologists to summarize research about a human group without ever doing primary research. That is what this author has done.

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.

This book is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to cut through the propaganda regarding same-sex so-called "marriage." I think that the book would be especially helpful for those who understand that there is something wrong with the idea of changing the definition of marriage but cannot completely articulate why this is so. In spite of the subtitle, there is very little that is exclusively Catholic about this book, so I hope that it will appeal to a wider range of people than just Catholics...truth is truth.

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.

This book is a must read for anyone who has questions about gay marriage. It logically, intelligently and concisely lays out the arguments against gay marriage. So much of the media coverage today refuses to allow an honest exchange of ideas on this subject. It is all pro gay marriage with opposing voices being portrayed as "haters" or "ignorant hicks". This book articulates intelligent reasons why society cannot afford to go down this road. A great book.

58 of 79 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on September 21, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book seeks to do two things: affirm the traditional understanding of heterosexual marriage, and challenge the homosexual offensive. Of course the two go together. There is probably no greater threat to the institutions of marriage and family than that posed by the militant homosexual lobby.

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.

This book is extremely informative, and everything is thoroughly backed up with usable footnotes to support the author's conclusions. The overall tone is compassionate and should be helpful to anyone, including those with same-sex attraction and their families. I am recommending it to as many people as I can.

Format: Paperback
This book is great for the average busy person! The read is quick and to the point. One doesn't have to be Catholic to see and agree with the strong arguments against homosexual 'marriage'. The author makes great pains to explain this isn't about bigotry or hate but about truth and freedom.

Format: Paperback
I like the way that O'Leary used the actual court records and responses to help write this book. One does not have to have the same views as the author to appreciate this book. It states lots of facts that can help someone who is researching this subject or just curious about the subject. Informative read!

Dale does a great job going over the many facets of why marriage is between one man and one woman. She states facts, and portrays that other side of gay "marriage" that doesnt come out on the media. Definitely recommend it if you want to know the reality of homosexuality.
