This book pushes us to reconsider our mistaken beliefs and assumptions about morality, freedom, Christianity and sexuality. It is a critique of the inborn paradigm within us and a challenge for us to create a new paradigm that holds the prospect of a truly new America. While the book majorly speaks about the rights of gays and lesbians, the arguments presented in it apply just as well to all religious minorities (Jacobsen &amp. Pellegrini, 2005). The authors point out that the basis of all federal and state laws is religion. Everything stems out from religion, even the laws regulating sexual activity. Secular laws that regulate American marriages point out that marriage is the proper institution of having intimate physical relationships. But marriage was a religious institution until the evolution of civil law. The authors further address the question of whether everyone should be given the right to marry or should the constitution and hence, the government be kept out of the marriage business altogether (Jacobsen &amp. Pellegrini, 2005). The First Amendment requires both the disestablishment of religion and protection for the free exercise of religion including the right not to practice the religion. Marriage should also be disestablished if it is based on religion and hence, protecting the free exercise of sexuality.
