Here, two scholars confront the issue of sexual regulation head on by supporting the idea of having sexual freedom just as we have religious freedom. In their carefully constructed argument, they fight the idea of loving the sinner but hating the sin, suggesting we should, in the case of sex, love the sin itself. Their argument concludes by providing a new way of considering freedom for both sexuality and religion.

Review quote

["Love the Sin's"] arguments are advanced with wit and flair. The book pushes us to consider the possibility that our own fundamental assumptions about freedom, morality, Christianity and sexuality might be just plain mistaken. --David Harrington Watt, "Christian Century" "[A] tightly packed analysis of the fallacy of sexual tolerance in American society . . . Like any trumpet call to pull down the walls, this book serves its purpose by giving the GLBT community a new focus and even a renewed idealism." --Gayle R. Baldwin, "Gay & Lesbian Review" ""Love the Sin" presents an alternative vision for thinking about politics and religion. It is a unique work, in that it is a critique of the paradigm that is so inbred in us, and a challenge to create a new paradigm that holds nothing but possibilities for a truly inclusive America." --Mary Louise R. Cervone, "Conscience Magazine"
