What do you think of the Bible? Literal truth? Total rubbish? Have you read it? No? So how can you have any opinion about a book that you haven't read? There's nothing wrong with having faith; but must people insist on 
blind faith?

From Genesis to Deuteronomy, 'Being Gay is Disgusting' is a chapter-by-chapter paraphrasing of the Bible, using the most casual and inappropriate language possible. Creation, the Flood, Joseph's cool dreams, escape from Egypt and the long and surprisingly gruesome story of Moses are all covered in unpleasant-but-accurate detail. And won't it be nice to be able to have a semi-intelligent discussion about the Old Testament with your God-fearing friends!

"Hilarious and eye-opening" --Gay Chicago Magazine

"Dry, witty and at times laugh-out-loud funny" --Out in Perth

"A funnier, less-hectoring counterpart to The God Delusion" --Star Observer

From the Author

Why entitle the book, Being Gay is Disgusting?  Falzon explains:
     "I was motivated by so many well-funded groups who hark back to Leviticus for the moral turpitude of homosexuality. Homosexuality is mentioned exactly twice in 2,700 years, yet lobby groups focus on this 'law' far more than any other biblical rule. They'll never admit that the same biblical page also contains prohibitions on cross-breeding animals and wearing clothes of two different threads.
     "These groups will spend millions on anti-gay efforts, but nobody is protesting the local zoo for breeding ligers or farmers for breeding mules, nor are these groups attempting to shut down the Gap for using poly-cotton blends," adds Falzon. "And no one is lobbying to prohibit working on the Sabbath, yet that rule is peppered throughout the Old and New Testaments, and is even one of the Ten Commandments. It's the cherry picking that annoys me.
     "Whether the Bible is all true, partly true or all false," Falzon says, "few would disagree it has shaped Western civilization. For this reason, it bears reading by everyone. Discussions, debates and conjecture about its historical accuracy or moral truth cannot begin until we're aware of what it says. My book helps people take that first step - awareness. I don't get into whether it's true - perhaps that'll be my next book."
