God Believes in Love: Straight Talk
About Gay Marriage

Random House

2335 N. Orchard (at the corner of
Fullerton and Orchard)

Opposition to same-sex marriage from
the conservative Right rests primarily on the claim that the practice
is prohibited by Christian beliefs and values. In God Believes in
, openly gay New Hampshire Episcopalian Bishop Gene Robinson
shows that this logic is inherently wrong. A vital tool for anyone
who is grappling with what they believe their religious faith demands
and what they know about the gay people in their lives, God
Believes in Love
addresses several key questions:

• What’s wrong with civil unions?

• Does gay marriage undermine

• What if my religion doesn’t
believe in gay marriage

• Doesn’t the Bible condemn

In a culturally polarized election
year, God Believes in Love will help readers of all stripes
and convictions better understand why full marriage equality is so
important and why it is a violation of civil rights to deny access to
marriage because of sexual orientation. More so, that the struggle
for marriage equality is not about denying religious freedom. It is
about commitment, compassion, acceptance, and the right to love.
