"In this timely book that just might change the law of the land, Eskridge offers arguments that will be controversial among both gays and straights. First, he demonstrates that only the modern West has failed to provide some form of sanction for same-sex unions. ... Second, he argues that legalizing same-sex marriage would help civilize gays. .... Third, same-sex marriage would help civilize America. .... Along the way, Eskridge discusses the controversial issue of raising children in gay households. Finally, in an Appendix, he includes letters from a broad cross-section of American clergy -- Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish, evangelical, traditional, and modern -- in support of legalization". -- front dust jacket blurb.

Notes
"[B]y Kapya Kaoma".
"This is a study of 'renewal movements' in three denominations -- The Episcopal Church (TEC), the United Methodist Church (UMC), and the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) -- and their Christian conservative allies. Renewal movements are theologically and socially conservative groupings in mainline U.S. Protestant churches. The report examines the way these movements are partnering with African religious leaders as part of a strategy to destabilize and and halt the progressive social witness of U.S. mainline churches while promoting homophobia in both Africa and the United States. 'Social witness' is a term describing how churches respond to God's call to work for peace and justice. There has been little systematic, on-the-ground research about the connections in Africa until the Political Research Associates commissioned this report. .... 'African' unless otherwise stated refers to the people of Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya". -- Intro., p. 2.
