Would you believe that 86 percent of LGBT people??"from the proud marcher at the Pride Parade to the quiet, closeted teen??"spent their childhood in church? More than half of them left those religious commu-nities as adults; three out of four would be happy to come back.
For decades now we have found our-selves caught up in a culture war: us versus them. Good news: there is no them. Our culture war has been a civil war: Us versus Us. And there is a path toward meaningful peace.
Andrew Marin brings the startling findings of his largest-ever scientific survey of the religious history, practices, and beliefs of the LGBT community. Marin??s findings offer clear direction for both sides of a long cultural battle to meet in the middle, sacrificing neither conviction nor integrity as they rediscover the things they have in common and the hope found in Christ alone.
Original, groundbreaking research into the religious lives and beliefs of the LGBT community.
