Although many conservative Christians (including St. Paul) reject homosexuality due to the laws of Moses, Kevin points out that very few (if any) of these three-thousand-year-old Mosaic laws are upheld today, and that homophobia is contrary to the spirit and manner of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Kevin highlights the many passages in the Bible that support the view that Jesus reformed the covenant that God gave Moses, and that this paves the way for Christianity’s adoption of LGBT rights. Jesus himself never condemned homosexuality- however, He did illuminate the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. Kevin argues that the Pharisees are very much alive today in the form of conservative Christians that proscribe homosexuality. Since most of the laws against homosexuality around the world have a religious basis, then this books demolition of the conservative Christian argument against homosexuality will also be instructive for non-religious LGBT rights campaigners.

Using the Parable of the Prodigal Son as an analogy, Kevin outlines how liberal and conservative Christians can finally agree on the divisive issue of same sex marriage.
