Abstract:

"The crisis of faith in religion and in democracy grows greater each day. With an unflinching pen, Rev. Osagyefo Sekou challenges us to reconsider the role of religion in our global democracy. Arguing that religion must be used to expand democracy, not limit it, Gods, Gays, and Guns examines contemporary issues of gay marriage, economic justice, racism, and other social movements to show how religion has been misused to defend particular individual agendas. Written in Parisian cafes, London's ghettos, and the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake and post-Katrina New Orleans, Gods, Gays, and Guns is a spiritual tour-de-force, revealing a crisis of faith in religion and democracy.
