This morning I was happy to find in my inbox this review of UNFAIR, from Dan Savage:
Dan is founder of the It Gets Better Project, and author/editor of the New York Times bestselling book, It Gets Better. His Savage Love blog and Savage Love podcast are wildly popular. And watch for Dan’s TV show, Savage U, premiering this January on MTV.
The touching, brave, and frequently heartbreaking letters in UNFAIR: Christians and the LGBT Question should be required reading for any Christian who claims that gay people can’t also be Christians–and for LGBT people who feel there’s some conflict between their sexual orientations or gender identities and their faith. John Shore is sharp, he’s funny, and he’s right. To find out why I’ve called him America’s preeminent non-douchey Christian, buy and read this book. And I challenge anyone who believes that the Bible justifies the persecution of their gay and lesbian neighbors–particularly those on the religious right who’ve made lucrative careers for themselves out of bearing false witness against their gay and lesbian neighbors–to read this book’s concluding essay, “Taking God at His Word: The Bible and Homosexuality.” Read John with an open mind and he’ll change yours.
