Gods, Gays and Guns
by Rev Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou
About the Book:
Democracy and god have failed captures the spirit of this provocative collection of essays. Arguing that religion must be used for the expansion of democracy, Gods, Gays, and Guns takes up the topics of gay marriage, economic justice, and social movements. Written in the Parisian cafes, London’s ghetto, and the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake and post-Katrina New Orleans, Gods, Gays, and Guns is a spiritual tour-de-force revealing a crisis of faith in religion and democracy. With an unflinching pen, Rev. Sekou challenges the reader to rethink the meaning of the role of religion in our global democracy.
Praise for the book:
“Rev. Sekou is one of the most courageous and prophetic voices of our time. His allegiance to the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. is strong and his witness is real. Don’t miss this book!” -Cornel West, Professor of Religion, Princeton University
