(Both “religious right” and “lesbian and gay [...]

    2. Although the premise of this book is promising, the actual delivery leaves much to be desired. Fetner chooses epigraphs, and makes the occasional enticing claim, that seems to promise new and useful insights into the workings of both the religious right and the LG(BT) movement. But almost always, she quickly abandons those insights to focus on what seems to be the most superficial facets of each movement. For instance, instead of an in-depth analysis of the way Anita Bryant altered the rhetoric [...]

    3. I got about halfway through this last night while sitting, drunk, in a law library. I applied for a membership to said library so I can finish it, and with the bureaucracy of the law library's university that may take a while, but what I gathered from the first half of the book was a great deal of information written in a very dry, academic voice.
