Overview

This book delivers the most impressive and comprehensive response to the homosexual movement ever assembled. An imposing array of scientists, psychologists, philosophers, and lawyers make the definitive case that homosexuality is both a moral and psychological disorder and a matted for compassionate but urgent public concern.

Not content merely to restate the traditional moral position, the contributors address the homosexual movement's most compelling arguments with both sympathy and a relentless commitment to the truth. These essays originated at a 1997 conference of the American Public Philosophy Institute. Experts of unsurpassed prestige probe the common assertions that homosexuality is genetically or biologically determined and that citizens' homosexual behavior should be exempt from social or legal censure.

Editorial Reviews

Norah Vincent
What's interesting about this collection, is not so much each writer's argument per se, but the way the book as a whole reflects current conservative thinking on gay rights and how that thinking is based on premises that are in many cases shaky or unproven.

A counter-offensive against the gay rights movement, offering 11 papers from a June 1997 conference sponsored by the American Public Philosophy Institute in Washington, DC. They challenge assertions that homosexuality is genetically or biologically determined and that homosexual behavior should be exempt from social or legal censure.
