Rainbowheart You guys, this list is for YA books only. That means books specifically published for the teen market. Adult books about homosexuality and religion are not appropriate for this list.

Removed....

Latter Days
The Catholic
Dancing on Tisha B'Av
The Salvation Mongers


message 2: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed The Earthquake Machine. There is no mention of religion on the book's page, and this list is only for books where there is *significant* discussion of religious themes.

Rainbowheart I would have hoped this was obvious, but this list is not an appropriate place for anti-gay books. I'm removing a homophobic religious title.

Bless you for this :P


message 5: by Cassidy (new)

Cassidy Are any of these books affirming of both religion AND sexuality? As a queer Christian I’d love to see any fiction that acknowledges that the two can exist in harmony


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart The God Box and Our Own Private Universe are both affirming of gay and bi Christians. Some of the others may be as well.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart I removed Corrupted, Disobedience, To Have Him and Hold Him, and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit for being adult fiction.
