Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance

by

Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this revolutionary new book, scholars Janet R. Jakobsen and Ann Pellegrini confront the issue of sexual regulation head-on by supporting the idea of having sexual freedom just as we have religious freedom in this country. In their carefully constructed argument, they fight the idea of loving the sinner but hating the sin, suggesting we should, in the case of sex, love the sin. Turning from sex to religion, the authors question why in the United States the principle of religious freedom is so rarely realized in practice. They end by providing a new way of considering freedom for both sexuality and religion, after laying out precisely how the two are intertwined.

“Surprising . . . startling . . . a fresh way to argue for gay rights and sexual freedom.” —Michael Bronski, Boston Phoenix

“A tightly packed analysis of the fallacy of sexual tolerance in American society . . . This book serves its purpose by giving the GLBT community a new focus and even a renewed idealism.” —Gayle R. Baldwin, Gay & Lesbian Review

“[The authors] powerful arguments might help feminists to explain pro-sex values to Christians who, knowing their own denominations struggles against established churches, understand the value of religious freedom.” —Gail Bederman, Womens Review of Books

Book News Annotation:

If freedom is such an important value in American life, ask Jakobsen (women's studies, Barnard College) and Pellegrini (religious studies and performance studies, New York U.), then why is advocating sexual freedom considered radical, extremist, or even un-American. The main text, published in a 2003 clothbound edition by New York University Press, discusses at length the 1986 US Supreme Court ruling; a new preface here adds perspectives from the 2003 ruling, which reversed it.

Synopsis:

In this powerful and timely book, Janet R. Jakobsen and Ann Pellegrini make a solid case for loving the sinner and the sin. Rejecting both religious conservatives' arguments for sexual regulation and liberal views that advocate tolerance, the authors argue for and realistically envision true sexual and religious freedom in this country. With a new preface addressing recent events, Love the Sin provides activists and others with a strong tool to use in their fight for freedom.
