About the Author

A native of Texas, Walter Barnett graduated summa cum laude from Yale University, where he was president of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. He earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence at the University of Texas and his Master of Laws at Columbia University. He was also a Fulbright Scholar at the College of Europe in Belgium. After a brief period of law practice in Texas he served for four years on the staff of the Legal Adviser of the U.S. Department of State in Washington and then taught for ten years in the law schools of the Universities of Miami, New Mexico and Texas and at Hastings College of the Law of the University of California. He also worked for nearly two years as Program Interpreter for the Friends Committee on Legislation of California and is a member of San Francisco Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. Since the beginning of 1979 he has been living with the Catholic Workers, first in Los Angeles and now in Redwood City, California.

His interest in the subject of this pamphlet goes back to 1969, when he became involved in the struggle for civil rights of Gay people. This culminated in his first book, Sexual Freedom and the Constitution—An Inquiry into the Constitutionality of Repressive Sex Laws (University of New Mexico Press, 1973). He is also the author of Jesus—the Story of His Life (Nelson-Hall, Inc., 1976). He was moved to write this pamphlet as a result of the recent efforts of Anita Bryant in Florida and John Briggs in California to marshal Christian support for their campaigns against the rights of homosexuals.
