Free sample

Two new words for a Tolerance-hungry vocabulary. Homosexuality is now Homonaturality. Heterosexuality is now Heteronaturality. Let's take the sting and abuse out of words that have become too narrow and too negative. - If you are a relative or friend of a gay or lesbian who has just come out to you, you may be wrestling with faith and conscience. You may be facing a conflict between what you thought you knew about the H-word and the character of the person you've known and loved for so long. Read this collections of pamphlets assembled in this book, some serious, some humorous, and some facetious, and let your mind decide to go with love. Then watch everything fall into place even if you feel your Bible and yhour church are pulling you in another direction. Find out how those who have sought to defend inerrancy and inspiration down through the centuries have almost always been on the back-side of progress, left behind by public opinion, hurrying to catch up with the rest of the world, and yet . . . still unwilling to concede their error until surrender is absurdly too little, too late.

About the author

As a line goes in one of my books, "I am a main-line denominational seminary drop-out" (40 years ago). That means I like to write and talki, mostly the former. My first lay ministry assignment in 1968 was at a church for the deaf in Columbus, OH, where I assisted a deaf pastor and deaf ongregation for 51⁄2 years. Today at the retirement home where we live I teach a sign language class to a half dozen residents who want to be able to converse with a new deaf resident that recently moved here. We have a gay son and I have been active in trying to help people understand that there is more than one sexual orientation. We also have two daughters who married fundamentalist husbands. Although the girls love their brother, they do not want him to discuss his "lifestyle" with them or their children. My goal in all my writing is to someday influence them to be more understanding and tolerant. We've lived at the Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community in Harrisonburg, VA, for a little over two years. Only about 30% of the residents are Mennonite. We aren't but we have attended their churches and find them to be among the most encouraging and uplifting people we've ever met. However, even among these new friends, only a minority are like-minded about homonaturality.
