Despite the massive cultural shift of recent years, those who value traditional marriage, gender differences and sexual purity have the opportunity to win debates in the coming years, while the gay revolution has sown the seeds of its own destruction, author Michael Brown argues in Outlasting the Gay Revolution: 8 Principles for Long Term Cultural Change.
"There are many, of course, who believe the culture wars are over and that America, from here on, will embrace homosexuality just as it embraces heterosexuality, without a second thought," Brown writes in the introduction.

After observing some of the early reviews, Brown was delighted to find readers "receiving fresh hope and courage to stand." more >>
