Same-Sex Matters: The Challenge of Homosexuality

Overview

This comprehensive examination of homosexuality starts with the fundamental political, social, and cultural principles at stake.

Overview

This comprehensive examination of homosexuality starts with the fundamental political, social, and cultural principles at stake. Christopher Wolfe delineates a reasonable and persuasive position that recognizes homosexuality as a disorder to be sympathetically discouraged, controlled, and even cured. In a strikingly original contribution, Patrick Fagan then argues that contraception has "homosexualized" heterosexual sex. As long as self-centered, rather than other-centered, love is the norm, society will be defenseless against the demands of homosexuals.

Subsequent sections cover public policy (anti-discrimination laws, the military, marriage and adoption), illuminate the cultural battlefield (the media, schools, and other institutions), defend the Christian and Jewish moral traditions, and confirm with personal testimony the possibility of overcoming homosexuality.

This book is a sequel to Homosexuality and American Public Life (Spence Publishing, 1999). Both volumes originated in a 1997 conference of the American Public Philosophy Institute in which experts from a variety of fields, eschewing prejudice and rancor, explored the truth about homosexuality. The result is a study of matchless originality that is indispensable for an understanding of one of our thorniest public disputes.
