The church has baptized over 16,000 persons in these almost 24 years.

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.

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.

If anyone has an agenda here, it's "doctor" Floyd, who obviously forgets that there is a constitutional separation of church and state in the US. Therefore, they cannot legally enforce their religious beliefs on anyone. Also, if anyone has an "agenda" it's the radical, so-called Christians who believe they're entitled to legislate basic human rights, based, again, on their own religious and moral beliefs. You cannot legislate dogmas or put basic human rights on a referendum like the California's Proposition 8 or Florida's Proposition 2, both of which passed. With that being said, this book is nothing more than the "right-wing agenda" aiming to brainwash as many people as possible. However, judging from the lack of reviews, it makes me wonder if anyone is really taking the writer seriously. It's hard to imagine that someone who claims to be a "doctor" claims in this book that homosexuality is a choice, where science has proven over and over again that it's genetic. It's in the DNA. This book will serve no other purpose than to be distributed at Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church.

I have a gay brother and sister, and they are exactly the same people now they were as small children -- except they've grown up to become a doctor and a respected business executive, each still with a partner they met over 30 years ago.

Their "agenda"? My sister: to heal the sick, and raise her son in an atmosphere that isn't poisonous with hate and bigotry. My brother: to lead an otherwise normal and happy life with his partner.

Sorry to spoil the horrible picture painted by the author, but I've known both these gay people for over 50 years, and they're as normal as you and I -- but thank God, NOT like the author of this book.

My brother and sister are NOT filled with hate like the author of this book, NOT trying to recruit followers with lies like the author of this book: my siblings are just simply trying to lead good lives with their loved ones and their friends (gay and straight.)

And I've met plenty of their gay friends -- again, nobody with any agenda but to live a life as normal as possible, despite the hate-filled bigots waging a cultural war against them.

The only people with an agenda that I can discern, are like the author of this book, trying to force their own distorted and hellish vision of religion on the rest of us normal human beings.
