Does the Bible prohibit homosexuality? No, says Bible scholar and activist Jay Michaelson. But not only that: Michaelson also shows that the vast majority of our shared religious traditions support the full equality and dignity of LGBT people. In this accessible, passionate, and provocative book, Michaelson argues for equality, not despite religion but because of it. From the Hardcover edition.

God vs. the Gavel challenges the pervasive assumption that all religious conduct deserves constitutional protection. While religious conduct provides many benefits to society, it is not always benign. The thesis of the book is that anyone who harms another person should be governed by the laws that govern everyone else - and truth be told, religion is capable of great harm. This may not sound like a radical proposition, but it has been under assault since the 1960s. The majority of academics and many religious organizations would construct a fortress around religious conduct that would make it extremely difficult to prosecute child abuse by clergy, medical neglect of children by faith-healers, and other socially unacceptable behaviors. This book intends to change the course of the public debate over religion by bringing to the public's attention the tactics of religious entities to avoid the law and therefore harm others.

Pay attention, people of faith. Dark clouds are gathering. The winds of intolerance are blowing. There’s a great storm approaching. American Christians are facing uncertain times. Our nation’s values are under assault. Religious liberty has been undermined. We live in a day when right is now wrong and wrong is now right. The vicious leftwing attack against the recent traditional marriage stance of Chick-fil-A should serve as a wakeup call to people of faith. It’s not about a chicken sandwich. It’s about religious liberty. It’s about free speech. It’s about the future of our nation. As a reporter covering the culture war for FOX News, Todd Starnes is on the front lines of these attacks against traditional values. In God Less America, he uses both recent news stories and compelling interviews with today’s top conservative leaders to bring to light what is happening across our country. In his award-winning, satire-meets-serious writing style, he strikes an important blow in today’s culture wars.

Homosexuality Man Vs God

There are many things in this world that people do, whether harmless or harmful. The habits that are not good in life are very appealing and good ones less appealing. Common examples of bad habits are in eating, drinking, smoking, sex, and use of drugs. Trying to give advice on the bad habits is interfering with the entertainment of the people concerned. For example in eating, there are many people who prefer junk food to good, healthy, and natural food. It takes the entirety of the whole universe to make them realize and concede that the practice is not good. Some practices or actions that are sin to God, no matter how we view them, are so exciting and appealing that the people concerned strongly feel delighted to commit them. So this book is about these practices, actions, and their solutions. It reveals that there is no sinful action less or greater than the other. All sins are the same before God and are self-entertainment. When the law of God is transgressed it becomes sin. Of course all of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. God’s grace justifies us freely through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. No one is guiltless. How can a perpetual thief cast a stone at a homosexual? How can a murderer, with hands full of innocent blood, cast a stone at the homosexual? How can a coveter cast a stone at the homosexual? How can the fraudulent cast a stone at the homosexual? How can a homosexual cast a stone at these above? The list of those with planks in their eyes who see specks in other people’s eyes is long. The solution to this sad state of affairs is to be unbiased; to be willing to know God, that He is real; and to be willing to explore the other side of the coin—that is to regret to be conscience stricken about a past action or attitude. This change is only possible through Christ. It took God, the creator of the heavens, the earth, and the sea and everything in them to become flesh (named Jesus) for us to realize and concede that some of our practices or actions are not good before Him. This is about Salvation. Ultimately, it is about freedom from sin in this world and the world to come which will be inherited by those who are willing to hear what the Holy Spirit says. The meek shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5).

Do you believe you were born gay and had no choice in the matter? Or do you struggle with gay or lesbian desires; or perhaps wrestle with sexual sin? Or are you a Christian who harbors the secret of sexual sin and have been too afraid to confess this sin so that God can set your free from such bondage? The author of this book, “No, I Was Not Born Gay!” understands your dilemma. The Holy Spirit has inspired Author Jay Hudson, by the grace of God, to speak the truth of God to all nations. This writing is not meant to be a “warm fuzzy feeling” read and some may even be offended. Nonetheless, Jay has been led by God to tell the truth to all people in these last days concerning sexual sin (homosexuality in particular). God has also anointed Jay to be God’s mouthpiece to help those who want to find (and experience) freedom in Christ.
