520 |a This book offers an eye opening conversation about questions, facts and fears, relative to sexual orientation. The book is framed around a series of nine sets of "queer questions," including, who is queer and who is not? how do we interpret and use sacred scriptures to control behavior and set public policy? what lessons can we learn from history and psychology? and what is the homosexual agenda? The author, himself a gay man and prominent academic, combines cross disciplinary research and personal anecdotes in his intriguing search for answers to questions that are central to ongoing cultural and political debates. In discussing each set of questions, he examines perspectives and arguments from across the political spectrum. The clear, articulate, and wholly candid answers he offers will help readers get beyond the headlines and the sound bites to better understand many important arguments about homosexuality and human rights.
