The author made a wise decision to begin by reiterating the danger and folly of labeling (stereotyping) people and making snap judgments. No matter which "side of the issue" we are on, we shouldn't let our assumptions, biases, subjective experiences, lack of understanding or intolerance negate or blindly lead us to ignore, dismiss, attack or diminish another person just because he has sincere (but different) beliefs, values or opinions. We should speak to the other person's humanity. Genuinely make the effort to understand and relate to him or her as an individual.

Mike Haley's answers to these four questions in particular impressed me the most:
(1) To what extent should a gay father (living with another man) be involved in the lives of his children?Read more ›
In the beginning, I truly felt sorry for this man. His story of sexual abuse is absolutely tragic. His initial premise (found on pg. 21), that being gay is not a choice but acting on sexual impulses is a choice, is completely true. Of course, denying one's sexual desires can have very serious consequences to one's well-being, but at this point nothing Mr. Mike Haley said was false. He then went on to completely contradict himself, multiple times, arguing that people aren't born gay (specifically, claiming things like there's no genetic link). As I read further, I found that he had obviously done his research before writing this book. At the time, he was up to date on the arguments and evidence. Yet, he chose to ignore the current scientific understanding and use faulty research and quote mines. That's why he lost my sympathy. The only way to maintain a position such as his given the amount of research he had done, would be to be intellectually dishonest.
So, let me move on to a few of the scientific issues I have with this book.
