"Homosexuality: Truth Be Told"
In a rare demonstration of support for the traditional model of the family, a law review has been published which offers legal scholarship challenging gay activism.
"There is a dearth of legal scholarship being published that critiques homosexual rights," said David Mundy, editor in chief of the Regent University Law Review. "Since a debate necessarily entails the presentation of both sides, this issue is dedicated to voicing the traditional, conservative side of the debate--a side that has been silenced in academia by misguided political correctness and the power of the gay rights lobby."
"Homosexuality: Truth be Told" contains articles by scholars and researchers that were originally slated to appear in the Stanford Law & Policy Review, but were subsequently rejected at the last minute due to their challenging nature, according to Mundy.
The articles are written from a wide perspective by authors from the fields of in clinical psychology, psychiatry, marketing, politics, and the law.
