Landon Schott Gay Awareness

Landon Schott’s Gay Awareness is Poison in a Pretty Package

Texas-based, travelling evangelist Landon Schott is certainly not unique in his strongly anti-gay theological and ideological beliefs. His lack of academic integrity and immature reasoning skills alone should render him inconsequential in the conversation about faith as it intersects sexual orientation. Yet, he can’t be dismissed because his target market is teens and young adults, […]

Outlasting the Gay Revolution by Michael Brown

Michael Brown’s “Outlasting the Gay Revolution” Continues His Non-Academic Anti-Gay Rantings

[This post was never pushed out publicly. It was originally posted on Amazon and exists here as a record that I can link to when needed.] Michael Brown called the last public review I posted on one of his books Brown a “revision” not a review. I expect this book review will receive a similar response. […]

If an author refuses to address the subject of the intersection of faith with sexual orientation and gender identity with academic integrity including acknowledging: the cultural shifts in the status of women, the progression of understanding and input from experts in human sexuality, the merger of conservative politics and religion since the late 1970s with its destructive impact, each significantly influencing the ability to take an honest look at biblical translations, then why should we listen to you?

Kevin DeYoung’s Book — Another Author Lacking Academic Integrity But Telling Us What God “Really Says” Anyway

Kevin DeYoung’s What Does the Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality? offers yet another utterly maddening viewpoint of “God’s truth” about gay people. I’ve read the bulk of such books written over the past few decades, beginning with the first “gays are out to destroy America” book written for the evangelical community by Tim LaHaye in […]

Ryan T. Anderson’s new book Truth Overruled : The Future of Marriage and Religious

Ryan Anderson’s Truth Overruled Presents Ideology as Truth

  Ryan T. Anderson’s new book Truth Overruled : The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom uses only arguments “based in philosophy, jurisprudence, political science and social science” to investigate “what marriage is, why marriage matters for public policy, and what the consequences are of redefining marriage.” Attempting to keep the debate on marriage equality going […]

“Algo marica le ocurrió a América” por Dr. Michael Brown | Reseña

“Existe tu verdad, mi verdad y LA verdad.” Los cristianos deberían tener como procedimiento operativo estándar el apegarse a la verdad. Muchas veces nos apegamos hacía “mi verdad” cuando ésta confirma nuestros miedos. Esta inclinación, sin embargo, tiene efectos mucho más dañinos cuando “la verdad”, sea la suya o la mía, es manipulada. El Dr. […]

Back to the Start | The Real Roots of Exodus | Pt.I

In September 2012, I attended the inaugural conference for Restored Hope Network (RHN) at Sunrise Community Church   in Sacramento, CA. The forming committee for RHN  had been gathering for several months in response to the belief that Exodus International was straying from its roots. When they concluded that their differences with Exodus were irreparable, several Exodus member ministries […]

“Holy Terror” by Mel White | Hey Church, You Got Played

Education, engagement and encouragement between the Christian Church and the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christian community is what I do. I talk with, listen to, read and follow seemingly otherwise kind and Jesus-esque people but, when the topic switches to the gay community, some become machines motivated by fear and unleashed in ignorance. Why? And […]
