There were things that I agreed with in the book an things that I disagreed with.
I. Thomas
Implying that questioning biblical inconsistency is worse than using those inconsistencies to write a book justifying slander and bigotry.
P. Fitzgerald
Much as Sears and Osten do in their book "The Homosexual Agenda", Floyd attempts to misdirect and overdramatize what is happening.

Format: Hardcover
I have been checking the books on the gay agenda that has no other purpose than to destroy the marriage and the family and impose their distorted views of life and sex on everybody, and again and again I see the 1 star reviews (written for sure by gay activists) that just making themselves "victims" and trying to make the general public perceive them as innocent and harmless. The truth is totally the opposite. They want everybody not just to tolerate, but to affirm their lifestyle, even when that behavior is clearly opposite to what is moral and to the word of God. They want to pervert the way children see the family and family relations, and are actively opposing the Christian people. The Scriptures are clear condemning that sin, and there is no whining or complaining on part of the gay activists that can change that. Homosexuality is immoral and is a sin. If gay activists don't like it, I don't care. Those 1 star reviews are simply part of the gay propaganda of opposition to moral values that want to spread everywhere. But the opposition to that agenda will attack them on every front. There will be no truce for them.

A voice of truth speaking from a solid understanding of scripture and the matter at stake. The heart of Floyd's message is of love, that we must fight the destruction that sin brings but show the love that Jesus had towards sinners.

Not an in-depth analysis of the biblical and theological arguments against homosexuality but a wake-up call to the slippery slope that we are falling into.

I used to be a member of Ronnie Floyd's church (First Baptist of Springdale, Arkansas) back in 1995. I also served as the pianist for his Sunday school class back then. I have since moved to Texas but recently saw that Dr. Floyd had a new book entitled, "The Gay Agenda" so I purchased a copy of the book and read it in one sitting. I am a Christian and I also happen to be gay. I tried to read the book with an open mind. There were things that I agreed with in the book an things that I disagreed with. I was fairly certain of what Dr. Floyd's perspective would be regarding the issue of homosexuality. What stunned me was how Dr. Floyd took historical issues and twisted them to fit his concept that homosexuality has caused many societies to fall (see page 123). Floyd says, "The fact is, no culture in history that has embraced homosexuality has long survived. The gay lifestyle is not the way to build a healthy society." First off, the societies that he mentions (Canaan, Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, Greece and Rome--see pg. 122) did not fall into ruin BECAUSE of homosexuality. That is a LONG stretch to assert something like that, in fact, it causes Dr. Floyd to be guilty of the very things he accuses gays of doing...stretching the facts to fit a certain agenda.

Dr. Floyd talks on page 95 about how "pro-family" fathers and mothers are busy with their daily routines: "working, taking care of children, church activities..." and are therefore at a "disadvantage" to the "pro-gay" individuals who are "married to their cause." But, I know plenty of "pro-family" gay and lesbian men and women who are ALSO raising their families, working, and yes they are even going to church. I was offended that Dr.

Format: Hardcover
Ironically, Mr. Floyd speaks out against the extreme hatred shown by some against homosexuals, even as he furthers that same hatred with his own views. He even goes so far, on page #11, to call the issue a "war". He also claims that one must seek to speak "the truth" with "love", as though his is the only truth, and as though he does not mean any harm by expressing his views as he does.

As is typical of this sort of doublespeak, he goes on to blame the ostracism that can be suffered by gays, and the rifts torn in families of gays who come out, upon the so-called "gay agenda", instead of where it belongs--upon the divisive, alienating attitude Mr. Floyd and many others of his ilk espouse. He claims to be made "sick at heart" by the suffering caused by the hatred against homosexuals, even as he himself helps to contribute to that hatred with his views!

He has a very conservative Christian outlook upon the subject and takes a very condescending tone, as though he is gently admonishing and guiding a wayward young child who just doesn't know any better. Much as Sears and Osten do in their book "The Homosexual Agenda", Floyd attempts to misdirect and overdramatize what is happening. He does this to support his theory that there is some grand agenda being enacted by the gays. Of course in reality, those of the glbt merely wish for the same rights as anyone else.

In summary, I support Mr. Floyd's right to express his views, especially in conjunction with his faith. The problem I have with his book is how he goes about expressing those views. If he is going to use his faith and his bible as a means by which to discriminate, he should at least stick solely to such, and not muddy his point with the misdirection, misinformation, and condenscendion he has filled his book with.
