One of our frequent commenters, Sheri Lawson has written about about gay marriage and Mormons, entitled The Spell of Religion. She’ll be discussing her book on God Discussion Radio at 7 p.m. PDT on Thursday, August 27th. Details about the program, as well as information for tuning into the broadcast online can be found here.
Sheri’s shared a lot with MfM readers as she’s made her journey through the maze of Proposition 8-related politics. It should be interesting to hear the show. The folks at God Discussion have this to say about her book:
The Spell of Religion is much more than a book about gay marriage. It is a deeply personal journey that Sheri shares with us about finding her own truth, at all costs. It is about the role of religion in our culture and how it is taking on a warlike, “us vs. them” stance that demands conformity. And for those of us who are not Mormon, it is a fascinating and compassionate look into a church that is so veiled with secrecy and misunderstanding.
