Publishers' catalogues are full of books on the Church's view of homosexuality; Gary David Comstock here offers gay views of the church. Given the often hostile environment, he asks why gay people stay in religious institutions. Using social scientific methods, he summarizes 36 surveys of gay attitudes toward religious communities, including Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim and Native American traditions. He adds data from his survey of gay people in two mainline Protestant denominations.
