Scholars and activists from the three fields explore the interface between them from the perspectives of public opinion, Evangelicals, mainline Protestants, Roman Catholicism, non-Christian responses, political parties, and rights claiming. Among specific topics are a 20-year survey of Canadian attitudes towards homosexuality and gay rights, African-American Protestants and the struggle over legal rights for gay and lesbian couples, Roman Catholics and same-sex marriage in Quebec, and evidence from the 2004 US election on the politics of marriage and American party politics. Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution.
