This book explains how faith, politics, and fear contribute to the homophobic mindset within the Black Church and the African American community.
· Draws connections between the fanatical homophobia in contemporary black culture to sexual mores developed as a response to the racial discrimination carried out against blacks since the founding of the nation
· Explains how the creation of the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnership and funds funneled to black churches have encouraged some of the nation's most powerful black religious leaders to dispense hateful rhetoric and malice towards black homosexuals
· Reveals how faith-based funding and the Black Church apply strong pressure on black LGBTs to keep their sexual identity a secret

Despite recent gains by the LGBT community, including affirmation of same-sex marriage by the President of the United States, homophobic attitudes in America continue to thrive, especially within the sanction of the Black Church. Faith-based initiatives have forced black Christian LGBTQ individuals to deny their sexuality, causing further breakdown of the black family structure and exacerbating AIDs and HIV in the black community. What are the reasons for rampant homophobia in the Black Church and its related communities?About the Author:
