From the Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, the first openly gay person elected (in 2003) to the historic episcopate and the world's leading religious spokesperson for gay rights and gay marriage—a groundbreaking book that lovingly and persuasively makes the case for same-sex marriage using a commonsense, reasoned, religious argument, made by someone who holds the religious text of the Bible to be holy and sacred and the ensuing two millennia of church history to be relevant to the discussion, equally familiar with the secular and political debate going on in America today, and for whom same-sex marriage is a personal issue; Robinson was married to a woman for two decades and is a father of two children and has been married to a man for the last four years of a twenty-three-year relationship.

Il giorno pi felice della mia vita

Author: Sebastiano Mauri
Publisher: Rizzoli
ISBN: 9788858676868
Release Date: 2015-01-29
Genre: Law

Siamo gli unici in Europa, insieme alla Grecia, a non aver legiferato sui diritti delle coppie dello stesso sesso. Ci è mancato il coraggio di accantonare vecchi luoghi comuni e di considerare che i pari diritti riguardano la vita di ognuno. Ci è mancato anche un libro come questo. Pagine taglienti e ironiche, che spiegano come in altri Paesi, dopo l'approvazione del matrimonio per tutti, la famiglia tradizionale non sia stata messa in discussione. Che raccontano di società ed epoche in cui l'unione tra persone dello stesso sesso era legale. E mettono a fuoco i gesti di omofobia contro i quali Sebastiano Mauri, e troppi italiani con lui, deve combattere. Un pamphlet acuto e anche ottimista. Perché una cosa è certa: è solo questione di tempo. A scendere in piazza, a breve, saranno madri e padri, fratelli e sorelle, amici, vicini di casa e colleghi di qualsiasi orientamento affettivo. L'obiettivo è uno solo, che ognuno possa sposare la persona che ama.

Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft

Publisher: FinanzBuch Verlag
ISBN: 9783862485932
Release Date: 2014-02-14
Genre: Business & Economics

In kaum einem Bereich spuken so viele Irrtümer herum wie in der Ökonomie. Zudem sind sie so weit verbreitet, dass sie als gültige Lehrmeinung angesehen werden. Themen wie staatliche Zinsmanipulation, Sparen, Inflation, Mindestlöhne oder Branchenrettung, wie die der Banken, sind aktueller und missverstandener denn je. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, was wirklich hinter den Begriffen steckt, wie sie zusammenwirken und welche praktischen Folgen (staatliche) Eingriffe haben. Niemand könnte ein Verständnis wirtschaftlicher Grundlagen besser vermitteln als Henry Hazlitt. Als einer der ganz Großen der Österreichischen Schule wird er in einem Atemzug mit Mises, Hayek und Rothbard genannt. Seine Begabung für elegante, populäre Darstellungen wirtschaftlicher Zusammenhänge haben dieses Buch entstehen lassen. In 24 kurzweiligen Kapiteln vermittelt er sein umfassendes Wissen, von Steuern über die Idee der Vollbeschäftigung bis zu Preisen und Inflation. Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft, ein Klassiker der Ökonomie jetzt auf Deutsch und heute noch so aktuell wie zur Erstveröffentlichung 1946.

The Truth About Same Sex Marriage

Author: Erwin W. Lutzer
Publisher: Moody Publishers
ISBN: 1575675218
Release Date: 2009-12-17
Genre: Religion

HEADLINE: Is it really that big of a deal? A May 2009 Gallup poll revealed that fifty-seven percent of Americans oppose same-sex marriage, while only forty percent are in favor of it (down from forty-six percent in 2007). This short, easy-to-read book helps shed light on what so many people believe, and why they ought not be at a loss about what to do now. The headlines only tell part of the story. In this revised and updated version of his bestselling book, Dr. Erwin Lutzer clearly and accurately depicts the truth about what is at stake here. By asking the right questions and by pinpointing the very real ramifications of same-sex marriage this handbook will help guide reality back to Truth. Dr. Lutzer expertly answers the questions that so many individuals, parents, friends, and families are asking: -How did we get to this point? -Why is marriage, as God intended it, better—and healthier? -How can I talk to my kids about this? -How do I responsibly read, watch, and filter the news? -Is there still hope? Let no one say that we have to choose between loving homosexuals and opposing same-sex marriages. Biblically, love is defined not as license to legitimatize sinful behavior of any kind, but love helps us see that there is a better way. Obviously, we must be as concerned about our own sins as we are about the sins of the homosexual community. We must be concerned enough to speak out about any action, heterosexual or homosexual, that violates God’s intended plan for marriage and the family. This simple, straightforward look at the issue of same-sex marriage will equip you to know what is really happening and, most importantly, why it matters for you.
