Lest you think that this book has to be full of condemnation and homophobic rhetoric, I've put in a few quotes that say differently.
"No matter how hot the political battle, we must remind ourselves that persons with SSA (same-sex attraction) have been denied something they really need-not marriage, but non-sexual same-sex love. They need our love and understanding. We betray them if we join the pretense that SSA isn't a disorder, or that their relationships are marriages."
"Why did they give up hope? Because we never gave them solid reasons to hope. We just added to their shame until the burden became unbearable. Most of all, we didn't pray for them as we should have."
"I have many dear friends with SSA who have come out of the life. Most say they came out because someone loved them; someone witnessed to them about the love of God. They didn't get their lives in order first; they were loved first, then they said yes to God."
This book does NOT inflame, it educates. It does not hide the truth in euphemisms or political doubletalk, but speaks it in love. I didn't read this book and feel anger toward gay people. I read it and felt more understanding toward them and what they go through.
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.
