    1 thought on “UNFAIR: Why the "Christian" View of Gays Doesn't Work”

    1. VERY thought provoking! Having grown up in the "Bible Belt" leaning to the "Christian Right", I had most of the prejudices described in the book but always justified it by saying I was "hating the sin, not the sinner". What a hypocrite I was!! This book really opened my eyes to what the Godly view of gays should be! I recommend this book to anyone who struggles with reconciling their love for gays with the "Christian viewpoint"!

    2. This book is an important take on the question of homosexuality in Christianity. In fact, looking at the question through the eyes of someone who is homosexual and affected by the Christian position is the only way to really understand what is at stake. Through letters sent to Shore, this book does just that: it shows that there isn't much of a debate here really. What these people have had to go through in the name of Christianity (a religion that is supposed to be about loving your neighbor) s [...]

    3. This is a collection of letters and essays by LGBTQ Christians, plus several of John Shore's pieces about Christianity and gay people. Very moving--and much of it very familiar for me. Highly recommend this book for anyone, gay OR straight, struggling to reconcile "biblical" Christianity and homosexuality.

    4. Shore makes an emotional appeal that Christians need to do more than "tolerate" gays and that there is no legitimate foundation for the demand that gay Christians must remain celibate to be in good moral standing. Hurrah! I could not agree more. However, I was expecting a more academic argument, and Shore provides the emotional appeal of a career blogger. This book was certainly not a waste of my time, just not what I was expecting. I would recommend Shore's essays "Wings on a Pig", "The Inevita [...]

    5. John Shore's "Unfair" is a persuasive and Biblical sharing of stories of gay and lesbian Christians who have struggled with being gay and being faithful to God's word. Many have spent years in guilt, shame and fear. Many so-called "cures" have failed, with heartbreaking results.John intersperses the personal stories with careful, honest and convincing Biblical exegesis of support for believing one can be both gay and a faithful Christian. It is definitely worth reading, discussing, and sharing.

    6. Since I read most of John Shore's essays on his website before seeing them in this book, I most enjoyed the letters from real, live LGBT Christians. Who better to speak of the love and acceptance of God without respect of a person's sexual orientation than those who are living it? Then John Shore's essays added a healing salve on top of the healing I already felt from reading the letters. I have marked this book on my ereader to read over and over again.

    7. This book was heartbreaking. Between the essays by John Shore were accounts of people who'd experienced some of the worst Christianity has to offer, yet never gave up on it. It was a humbling experience. The essays are also excellent displays of both critical thinking and compassion. More people should read this book.

    8. I am a Christian parent who absolutely adores my 15 year old lesbian daughter. She is my hero and one of the bravest people I know. Thank you John Shore for helping to answer some of my questions and for helping show the world that God loves us all. This book is a MUST read!
