On the heels of his Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign, Dan Savage delivers "powerful messages for both the head and heart" ( Entertainment Weekly ) From the moment he began writing his syndicated sex-advice column, Savage Love, Dan Savage has never been shy about expressing his opinion on controversial topics--political or otherwise. Now, he addresses issues ranging from parenting and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church and health care. Among them: Why straight people should have straight "pride" parades, too Why Obamacare, as good as it is, is "still kinda evil" Why what passes for sex-ed in America is more like "sex dread" Why the Bible is "only as good and decent as the person reading it" Speaking to a broad range of subjects with brutal honesty and irreverent humor, American Savage cements Dan Savage's place as a provocative and insightful voice in American culture. From the Trade Paperback edition.
