The Innocent Casualties of Same-Sex Parenting

Written and edited by two scholars who were raised by same-sex parents.

Jephthah’s Children cites many disturbing stories that challenge western society’s declaration that same-sex parenting is as good as, or perhaps even better than, traditional parenting.

Co-author, Robert Lopez, is Professor of Humanities at Southwestern Baptist Seminary in the US and previously Professor of English Literature and Classics at California State University.

Co-author, Brittany Klein, holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing from the University of Virginia. She serves on the Executive Board of the International Children’s Rights Institute.


“Tragically, for many of those brought up in dysfunctional homes with lies, abuse and corruption of innocence, there is only silent torment. But Lopez and other narrators who have emerged from such situations, and who have had the courage to speak about them, show in their own life stories, how even in the worst situations God is present with his judgement and transforming grace.”

Rev. Andrew Symes, Executive Secretary, Anglican Mainstream

“Gay parenting has been a huge and risky social experiment. Only a generation later can the outcome be fully visible. But now that time has passed and we need to listen to the voices of those who have grown up in families headed by same-sex parents.”
Rev. Dr John Nolland, Visiting Professor, University of Bristol
