The note from the authors Alan Sears and Craig Osten at the beginning says.
"While this book deals with a difficult and contentious issue, we want to state up front that both authors and the ministry of 'Alliance Defense Fund' have nothing but respect, compassion and sensitivity toward those enslaved in homosexual behaviour. Both of us have family members, respected acquaintances and friends who have been trapped in this behaviour and know something of the incredible pain and sorrow it has brought to them and their families. With God's grace we carefully balance this love and respect for these individuals with warnings about the carrying out, promotion, and demand for legal approval for homosexual behaviour that will stifle religious freedom and trap millions of more people in its deadly grip."
It goes down hill from here. The other 229 pages continue in a similar vein of duplicity, sensationalistic scare tactics, condemnation and fear-mongering.
With an enormous amount of quotes, many taken out of context, referencing, cherry picking research the authors endeavour to make a case that gay and lesbian people intend to take over the world and destroy the church and family. Oh and don't forget we are also debauched paedophiles according to authors.
Even though the endorsements at the front of the book by people such as Bill Bright, James Dobson, James Kennedy and Albert Mohler speak glowing of the work , one pastor calling it 'ground-breaking', these conspiracy theories are nothing new. It's a worn out, tired, old, vagary that has kept their prayer lives active and the church and ministry coffers full since the likes of Anita Bryant in the 1970's with her 'Save the Children' campaign.
The frightening thing of course is that there will be those who read this and it will push them further into ignorance and misinformation about the everyday lives of gay and lesbian people, their families and relationships.
The only reason I persisted and ploughed through this piece of fantastical, conservative Christian writing was for research.
Just for the record. The agenda is to be treated with dignity, respect and equality. That is all.

OK. There is a war against traditional monogamous marriage. Of course, you think I am nuts and you're not. But unless you read the book, you will always be that naive and be a puppet of your TV screen. Homosexual radical activists actually started this war, and unless moral fraction of a population responds to immoral, perverse, deviant, unhealthy, destructive, and irresponsible practice, the war will be won by the activists and the social experiment will continue. The stakes are high, and the next generations are the most at risk. So, don't neglect. Get educated on the subject. And don't get your interest be destroyed by shallow one-star 'reviews' you can see on Amazon.
This book has IMMENSE amount of data to substantiate and validate the title of this book. There is an agenda, and it is a threat. Not only to religious people, but for all MORAL people!!!
As you may, or may not know, 'official' homosexual agenda was laid out by Marshal Kirk and Hunter Madsen in 1987 in their book 'After the ball'.
(p.17) "The homosexual activists laid out a six-point strategy to radically change America's perception of homosexual behavior. Their six points are:
1.) Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible.
2.) Portray gays as victims, not aggressive challengers.
3.) Give homosexual protectors a "just" cause.
4.) Make gays look good.
5.) Make the victimizers look bad.
6.) Solicit funds: the buck stops here. (i.e. get corporate America and major foundations to financially support the homosexual cause)."
Just note those steps and simply observe them EVERYWHERE. Blogs, movies, newspapers,... anything homosexual activists can lay their hands on becomes (as when rotten apple touches normal apple) spoiled. All those six steps are clearly observed in the US. I can't believe someone can try to deny it happens.
Anyways, let's move forward...
Consider this case. (p.65) "For example, in Framingham, Massachusetts, students were forced to answer a questionnaire that openly challenged the validity of their heterosexuality. Here are some of the questions they were asked:
1.) What do you think caused your heterosexuality?
2.) When did you first decide you were heterosexual?
3.) Is it possible heterosexuality is a phase you will grow out of? [Of course, the flip side of this question is not asked: Is it possible that homosexuality is a phase you will grow out if?]
4.) Is it possible you are heterosexual because you fear the same sex?
5.) If you have never slept with anyone of the same sex, how do you know you wouldn't prefer it?
6.) To whom have you disclosed your heterosexuality? How did they react?
7.) Why are heterosexuals so blatant, always making a spectate of their heterosexuality? Why can't they just be who they are and not flaunt their sexuality by kissing in public, wearing wedding rings, etc?"
To be honest this is one of the most disturbing propaganda tactics I found in this book. And this is one of the most disgusting examples of 'loaded questions' (the name of a well known logical fallacy. also known as 'complex queestion') I've seen being directed toward children. If you can's see the problems for yourself, I can offer help:
1.)Why should one ask what caused his/her heterosexuality, if this is a normal and expected behavior. Do we ask someone who is not anorexic what have caused him or her being NOT anorexic? Do we ask someone who does not have a diabetes what have caused him or her NOT to have a diabetes? The point here is simple, if someone have a DEVIANCE, or anomaly, or divergence from what is expected, then and only then it is expected to ask questions of this sort. Otherwise, it is ridiculous!!! It's like asking 'what made you not being a serial killer'?
2.) Question 4 is simply disgusting attempt to use authority over children to ask such idiotic question. 'Is it possible you are heterosexual because you fear the same sex?' Hmm. Maybe it is because heterosexuality is a normal and expected and healthy and productive and beneficial to society pattern of behavior? What sort if an dumb person would ask this question? Do we ask questions like... 'hmm, is it possible your eating through your mouth because you fear eating through your ears, or through your eyes?' Does this question make sense? No. Why? Because, once again, unless something is a DEVIANT and abnormal, why would you ask stupid questions? There is a PROPER use for digestive system, and there is a PROPER use for reproductive system, and UNLESS there is something ABNORMAL (like homosexuality in relation to reproductive system, or attempt to eat trough ears - as it relates to digestive system) why in the world would someone ask something in regard to fear???
3.) Question 5 is unbelievable. I wish I was there to talk to those who wrote those questions publicly. So unless you try something, you are in disadvantageous position to judge whether it is good for you??? Interesting. I think then, they imply that the student should try beastiality, necrophilia, incest, orgies, and cannibalism to simply know whether they will like it or not? Hmm. I have even better problem with this argument... What if students would try to chop off sexual perverts' heads and would actually like that? Now it's getting interesting, isn't it?
4.) Again, in question 6 as in previous question, the trick is to make sexual perversion look similar to being normal. Why would someone ever think how would people react to being NORMAL??? Maybe I should ask: 'To whom have you disclosed that you're not a serial killer? How did they react?' Or something like: 'To whom have you disclosed that you're not a necrophiliac? How did they react?'? You see we don't ask such dumb questions for a purpose.
Radical homosexual activists deliberately brain-wash kids who have no critical thinking skills (because critical thinking is not something taught in schools) to know that all those questions are indeed 'loaded questions' and deliberately crafted to demoralize and erode common sense morals and common sense expectations of a normal person. To make a student worried about him/her being normal and to consider presumably existing 'alternative orientations' as valid moral options for conduct.
Ok, let's move on...
(p.138) "The goal of radical activists is to make sure that no church can say that homosexual behavior is sinful, least they feel stigmatized. The only church they want is one that either affirms their behavior or merely exists for potluck dinners and bingo tournaments or for the advancement of leftist causes."
(pp.118-119) "Adults seeking to change the family and traditional sex roles to suit their own desires are using innocent children again. To intellectual elites, homosexual activists, and their allies, children are guinea pigs in a social experiment, instead of individuals that need love, care, discipline, and nurturing.
The no-fault divorce laws of the sixties and seventies left a trail of broken children. No-fault divorce did not mean "no harm". Then there were the radical feminists who tried to convince us that girls and boys were basically the same - it was the environment that made boys aggressive and athletic and girls feminine and domestic. The result? Sexually confused children who grew up to be sexually confused adults.Now, almost thirty years later, study after study, as well as good old common sense, has confirmed what God knew right from the beginning: that there are biological differences between boys and girls. Obviously, we have not learned from our past mistakes. Social engineers and homosexual activists are using children as pawns again, just as those who promoted divorce and militant feminism, to push their own self-interests and agenda."
(p.201) "Canadian lawyer Barbara Finley, an open lesbian said, 'The legal struggle for queer rights will one day be the struggle between religious freedom versus sexual orientation'."
(p.206) "Remember, just seventeen years ago, then Chief Justice Warren Burger said this about sodomy in his 1986 concurring majority opinion in Bowers: 'Decisions of individuals relating to homosexual conduct have been subject to state intervention throughout the history of Western Civilization. Condemnation of those practices is firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian moral and ethical standards ... [Sir William] Blackstone described 'the infamous crime against nature' as an offense of 'deeper malignity' than rape, a heinous act 'the very mention of which is a disgrace to human nature' and 'a crime not fit ti be named'. To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millenia of moral teaching".
These were some worthwhile quotes that caught my attention. This book is loaded with lots and lots of good information that exposes homosexual agenda to redefine marraige and ultimatelly destroy it altogether. Radical homosexual activists do not want to confirm to monogamous relationships at all. Rather they want to confirm and redefine traditional marriage unto their own perverse promiscuous, unhealthy, destructive, deviant pattern of sexual anomaly. Don't believe me? Read this book, research it, and watch closely.
