    DescriptionForty years ago, most Americans said they didn't know anyone who was homosexual and claimed to know little or nothing about homosexuality. Today, there's hardly a sitcom without a prominent gay character, movies like "Milk" and "Brokeback Mountain" have won Oscars, and even "People" magazine celebrated the marriage of Ellen Degeneres and Portia DeRossi. "A Queer Thing Happened to America" chronicles the amazing transformation of America over the last forty years, and addresses the question head-on: Is there really a gay agenda, or is it a fiction of the religious right? Written in a lively and compelling style, but backed with massive research and extensive interaction with the GLBT community, this forthright and yet compassionate book looks at the extraordinary impact gay activism has had on American society. This could easily be the most controversial book of the decade. Read it and find out why the publishing world was afraid to touch it.

    Author Information
    Dr. Michael L. Brown is the director of the Coalition of Conscience and serves as a professor at a number of leading seminaries, holding a Ph.D. in Near Eastern languages and literatures from New York University. He is the author of twenty books and numerous scholarly articles, and he serves as the host of "The Line of Fire," a nationally syndicated, daily, talk radio broadcast. He has spoken throughout America and in twenty-five nations and has made numerous TV and radio appearances, while his work has been featured in the "Washington Post," the "Charlotte Observer," and the "Baltimore Sun." For the last six years, he has been in extensive interaction with the gay and lesbian community, reaching out to the people with compassion while at the same time standing against the goals of gay activism. For this he has been branded a Hitler and jihadist, while others have called him a religious conservative with a heart.
