Gods Gays and Guns: “Democracy and god have failed …”

A new book is on the scene for your intellectual stimulation and edification.

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.
