This is a really great book. The following is from the introduction:
Rather than be depressing, I found the book to be uplifting, insightful, and helpful in understanding myself, my behaviors, and my feelings.
Today at church I was thinking about gay priesthood leaders. One of the many things this book has made me think about is how driven to succeed we (as gay men) generally are and how we often play an important role in many organizations. Along those lines, it seems to me that more than the expected percentage of gay men in the church end up in leadership positions of one kind or another at some point in their church career, if they stick around. I definitely fall into that category. Right or wrong, as in the business world, people advance in the Church when they do more than average to help the organization succeed. Unfortunately, in the Church we also tend to not stand up for gay issues because we are more focused on success in the organization to compensate for our underlying shame. Sad, but I think true.
