An imposing array of scientists, psychologists, philosophers, and lawyers make the definitive case that homosexuality is both a moral and psychological disorder and a matter for compassionate but urgent public concern. Not content merely to restate the traditional moral position, these writers address the homosexual movement's most compelling arguments with both sympathy and a relentless commitment to the truth. Part One of the book, devoted to the scientific and medical aspects of homosexuality, features a comprehensive examination of the putative biological origins of same-sex attraction, a survey of its psychological roots, and a provocative discussion of the disastrous results of identifying AIDS as a "gay disease." Part Two contains an analysis of the natural law arguments about the morality of homosexual acts. Part Three deals with the attitude of law and public policy toward homosexuality.
