BOOK DESCRIPTION - PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK


The purpose of this book is to present a convincing Biblical argument as to why many Christians feel that they cannot support the homosexual lifestyle and to present a Constitutional argument as well as to why any attempt to force them to do so by means of some persecution or threat of persecution is a violation of their rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech. The book gives Christians the tools they need to defend the faith when it comes to the issue of homosexuality and hones in on the position that a Christian's non-endorsement of homosexuality is a question of faith and religion, not a question of "homophobia" and bigotry. 

Availability: Available wherever books are sold (if not stocked at bookstore, can be ordered). This book is also available on line through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and is nationally and internationally distributed.
