"Amen! A book that gives voice to the thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people who have been told they must sacrifice their identity to be Christian" -- Believe Out Loud
"For most of us, the fact that gay kids growing up in evangelical homes are made to feel worthless, unloved and unwanted is just plain depressing. For John Shore, it's a challenge-an opportunity to teach, to preach, to gently mock, and, most importantly, to throw the love of Jesus right back at evangelicals." -- Randy Roberts Potts
"As a former conservative evangelical, and now progressive pastor, I have studied the issue of homosexuality for years. I can say that without a doubt this book is the best treatment of the subject that I have ever read. This should be on the desk of every pastor, teacher or youth leader." -- Roger McClellan, The Progressive Christian Alliance

You'll read this book and never be the same. May all of us who are religious be brave enough to let it. And for those in the GLBT community, I hope this in some way repairs the terrible damage we've done to you - to your community - to you as kids, to you now as adults. We've diminished you so terribly and ourselves in the process. "Sorry" will never be enough but I hope, I hope, I hope that this will ease the burden you carry of Christians telling your story without you even in it.
The case presented here is so clear, so logical, it's impossible to argue. Christians like to cherry-pick their scriptures to fit their cause, but this essay makes you think of the Bible as a whole, and does NOT ALLOW you to do that. Incredible, really.
I'll update as I read from the beginning, but this book is SO WORTH your ten bucks, even if the only chapter you read is the last one.
This is a must read for any LGBT Christian or any LGBT person who thinks they can't be both. I'd also recommend this book highly for any Christian trying to figure out what God really says about gays.
