The Second Coming of Curly RedUser Review - Book Verdict
In a small town in Oregon, the populace is divided into three factions: bible-thumpers out to thwart "the radical homosexual agenda," lesbian and gay male couples unaware of any agenda they are supposed to be advancing, and the majority of people, who want to continue to live peacefully with their neighbors. What with the recent spate of horrific murders of gay men, there is an urgency to the question: What drives the hatred of the Christian right for gays and lesbians? It would be intriguing, if not entirely pleasant, to get into the minds of these people.
