From the IX Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church—the first openly gay person elected to the historic episcopate, and the world’s leading religious spokesperson for gay rights and gay marriage—a groundbreaking book that lovingly and persuasively makes the case for same-sex marriage using commonsense, reasoned, and religious arguments.
This powerful and deeply personal book will help readers better understand why full marriage equality is so important and why it is a violation of civil rights to deny access to marriage because of sexual orientation.
