HOLY TERROR: Lies The Christian Right Tells Us to Deny Gay Equality

by Mel White

Holy Terror  is an excellent indictment of the silence of the liberal church, of the ignornace and bigotry of people who are a part of the Christian right, and of the ignorance and bigotry in the United States in regard to gay/lesbian/bi sexual/Transgender rights.

Rev. White describes his own coming out proceess, and the pain, and the suffering he went through and his family expereinced.  He described what queer youth and individuals experience everyday.  He described what I experienced, and the pain that the church inflicted upon him in the name of Jesus.

He describes how the silence of the liberal Church, and of people supportive in general have inflicted so much pain on queers, and how it is time for the those inside the Church who are affirming and those outside to stand and speak loud and clear.

Since the present administration has been so supportive many feel that Gays/Lesbians/Bi sexuals/and Transgenders are going to be protected and be free, but let us be clear until the hearts and minds of people are changed there is no freedom, there is no safety.  This struggle is on going, and people are suffeing and dying and we need to voice our opions and stand in the forefront. 

This book may seem a little outdated because several of the main figures have passed on, but their legacy lives on, and is ever more fatal to queers.  Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
