Deviated: Religious Connotations

A fellow reader on a Facebook bookworm group suggested “Queer Virtue” (I’m working on my 2019 Reading Challenge, post to come), so I looked it up.

When the words “Rev” popped up, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and scrolled further.

But then I gave up anyway.

I can’t quite absorb books written by religious folks, because it’s, well, likely biased.

As much as they try to preach to the general masses, it is nearly impossible not to invoke religious connotations within their narrative.

There are many other LGBTQIA books that are on my tbr and wish list, so letting this go doesn’t really affect much. But I’m glad to have come across it. I could throw it at some judgmental Christian’s face should the opportunity presents itself (me, Christian upbringing).

p.s. I need to note here that their work in helping the LGBTQIA community prevail in the midst of a bigoted society is admirable. I admire their perseverance and effort, and that books as such are of important if not compulsory influence within their religious communities.
