Shameless promotion Saturday - How They See Us

Hey everyone, seeing that this weekend is rather uneventful, I thought I would take the time to continue to promote my booklet How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America.

How They See Us is probably one of the only few of its kind to call out and addresses specific bigoted claims lodged against the lgbt community by the religious right.  Through a use of graphics, photos, and information gleaned  from online, How They See Us exposes the cynical way religious right groups deliberately distorts science and religion to spread vicious propaganda while claiming that such propaganda is merely an expression of their religious liberty.

Since its posting on Scribd in January, How They See Us has gained tremendous underground success, garnering over 26,000 readers as well as being at one time the fourth most read nonfiction book and the number one most read political book on Scribd. And now I am working to unveil free hard copies at SC Pride in September, as well as attempting to reach the 50,000 reads threshold. If you have read it or downloaded a copy, by all means do so. It's free. If anyone has any problems, with the download and would like an adobe acrobat copy, email me at

While researching kosher foods I came across a term "Pikuach nefesh" meaning roughly that it is okay to save a human life even if it means overriding religious dictates. This concept is at least as old as Leviticus. I'm thinking that anyone that wants to enforce the bible brutally just wants to be brutal.

hi Alvin,

Thanks for 'shamelessly promoting' How they See Us. My nephew blew the family apart with this insanity back in the early '80s. It was a shocking eye opener, which helped spur me to look at my own christianity a little more closely, ultimately leading me on to atheism.
Anyway, the point is that I would love to make use of the embed feature and post the booklet on my blog. May I have your permission to do so?

regards, Storm

Hi Storm. Please feel free to post my booklet on your blog. I failed to make that clear to everyone. Everyone is allowed to do so ;p And thanks for your support ;p

Many of my fellow Canadians are unaware of these folks and the danger they pose. I've heard it described as 'an American thing'.
I'm hoping to help change that perception:-)

You do a great service with this blog.
