"Jonathan Coley explores the unique pathways along which students join and work within movements for LGBT inclusion at Christian institutions of higher learning across the country. Having interviewed dozens of students in LGBT advocacy groups at four conservative, religious schools of different denominations, Coley is able to use students' own words to analyze their self-conceptions and activist tactics, while shedding new light on faith-based LGBT activism on college campuses. Moreover, Coley shows that there is no single pathway to activism and, perhaps most importantly, that religion and pro-LGBT activism are not mutually exclusive categories"--

The first intensive, close-up investigation of the practice and teaching of religion at American colleges and universities, Religion on Campus is an indispensable resource for all who want to understand what religion really means to today's undergraduates. To explore firsthand how college students understand, practice, and learn about religion, the authors visited four very different U.S. campuses: a Roman Catholic university in the East, a state university in the West, a historically black university in the South, and a Lutheran liberal arts college in the North. They interviewed students, faculty members, and administrators; attended classes; participated in worship services; observed prayer and Bible study groups; and surveyed the general ethos of each campus. The resulting study makes fascinating and important reading for anyone--including students, parents, teachers, administrators, clergy, and scholars--concerned with the future of young Americans. Challenging theories of the secularization of higher education and the decline of religion on campus, this book reveals that both the practice and the study of religion are thriving, nourished by a campus culture of diversity, tolerance, and choice.

"Democracy and god have failed" captures the spirit of this provocative collection of essays. Arguing that the religion must be used for the expansion of democracy, Gods, Gays, and Guns takes up the topics of gay marriage, economic justice, and social movements. Written in Parisian cafes, London's ghettos, and the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake and post-Katrina New Orleans, Gods, Gays, and Guns is a spiritual tour-de-force, revealing a crisis of faith in religion and democracy. With an unflinching pen, Rev. Osagyefo Sekou challenges the reader to rethink the meaning of the role of religion in our global democracy.

How Religious Colleges and the Missionary Generation Are Changing America

Religious colleges and universities in America are growing at a breakneck pace. In this startling new book, journalist Naomi Schaefer Riley explores these schools-interviewing administrators, professors, and students-to produce the first popular, accessible, and comprehensive investigation of this phenomenon. Call them the Missionary Generation. By the tens and hundreds of thousands, some of America's brightest and most dedicated teenagers are opting for a different kind of college education. It promises all the rigor of traditional liberal arts schools, but mixed with religious instruction from the Good Book and a mandate from above. Far removed from the medieval cloisters outsiders imagine, schools like Wheaton, Thomas Aquinas, and Brigham Young are churning out a new generation of smart, worldly, and ethical young professionals whose influence in business, medicine, law, journalism, academia, and government is only beginning to be felt. In God On The Quad, Riley takes readers to the halls of Brigham Young, where surprisingly with-it young Mormons compete in a raucous marriage market and prepare for careers in public service. To the infamous Bob Jones, post interracial dating ban, where zealous Christian fundamentalists are studying fine art and great literature to help them assimilate into the nation's cultural centers. To Thomas Aquinas College, where graduates homeschool large families and hope to return the American Catholic Church to its former glory. To Yeshiva, Wheaton, Notre Dame, and more than a dozen other schools, big and small, rich and poor, new and old, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Mormon, and even Buddhist, all training grounds for the new Missionary Generation. With a critical yet sympathetic eye, Riley, a contributor to the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, the New York Times, the Weekly Standard, and the Chronicle of Higher Education, studies these campuses and the debates that shape them. In a post-9/11 world where the division between secular and religious has never been sharper, what distinguishes these colleges from their secular counterparts? What does the missionary generation think about political activism, feminism, academic freedom, dating, race relations, homosexuality, and religious tolerance-and what effect will these young men and women have on the United States and the world?

Anhand zahlreicher Fallberichte und unter Einbezug unterschiedlichster Lehrmeinungen läßt Friedman ein Bild von männlicher Homosexualität entstehen, das anschaulich und differenziert Entwicklung und Lebensstile beschreibt - und damit Vorurteilen sowohl der Alltagsmeinung wie auch einigen offiziellen Lehrmeinungen entgegenwirkt. Friedman plädiert für einen interdisziplinären Ansatz: Zwar hält er die psychoanalytische Argumentation stringent aufrecht. Er läßt dabei jedoch keinen Zweifel daran aufkommen, daß sozial- und sexualwissenschaftliche, familiendynamische wie auch neuropsychologische und endokrinologische Kenntnisse für ein umfassendes Verständnis männlicher Homosexualität ganz wesentlich sind und keinesfalls außer acht gelassen werden dürfen. Es ist Friedman gelungen, eine kritische Abhandlung - anschaulich und verständlich geschrieben - zur männlichen Homosexualtät vorzulegen, die mit Gewinn zu lesen ist.

Within the liturgy, congregations pledge to accept, love, forgive, and nurture the newly baptized member. The church, however, often lives out this covenant selectively, forcing its gay and lesbian members into silence, alienation, and doubt. We Were Baptized Too challenges the church to take seriously its understanding of baptism and communion as a means of grace, justice, and liberation.

(A Spoof on the Ex-Gay Movement)

Book Description for The God Squad: At last! A sharp and sexy satire that skewers the absurd methods used by the ex-gay movement to make gays go straight. In this hilarious send-up of ex-gay treatment programs, a young man named Paul joins Escape, run by the Reverend Sly Slocock. While trying to convert other gays, Paul meets Jimmy, a feisty antagonist from Homo Nation, who sets out to undermine Sly's increasingly bizarre attempts to cure Paul's homosexuality. The God Squad is a racy, romantic comedy spiced with irony, intrigue, and forbidden passion. By exposing the fraudulent hypocrisy of ex-gay ministries, it also provides a refreshing antidote to the religious right's campaign against gays. About the Author: Rik Isensee practices psychotherapy in San Francisco and has worked with some clients in recovery from ex-gay programs. He is the author of three self-help books for gay men: Love Between Men, Reclaiming Your Life, and Are You Ready? The Gay Man's Guide to Thriving at Midlife.

Yes, It All Really Happened Just Like This. . . Here's the story of Rich Merritt--the good son, teacher's pet, Southern gentleman, model Christian student at Bob Jones University, Marine officer, and the not-so-anonymous poster boy for a New York Times Magazine article on gays in the military--whose complicated sexual past caused an international scandal when The Advocate "outed" him as "The Marine Who Did Gay Porn," putting his life in a tailspin. It's the compelling, poignant story of how a boy who never listened to pop music, never cursed, and didn't have his first drink until he was eighteen exploded into a life of drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, prostitution, and pornography. And above all, it's a triumphant story of self-forgiveness and identity, of a man who refused to allow himself to be defined by the standards of anyone else--gay or straight. Along the way, Rich Merritt writes with humor, compassion, insight and naked truth about: • What it's really like growing up behind the "Fortress of Fundamentalism" and how he ultimately came to despise their views • The harsh realities of military life under the "Don't ask, don't tell" Clinton policy • A real insider's experience of working in the male porn industry--the good, the bad, and the extremely hot • Why he chose not to reveal his porn past to the New York Times journalist • What it felt like to be the most notorious marine in the world and what it took to come through the fire By turns harrowing and heartbreaking, angry and affirming, Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star is that rarest of memoirs--a fascinating slice of life that reads like the most absorbing fiction, but is all true.
