The Innocent Casualties of Same-Sex Parenting
Written and edited by two scholars who were raised by same-sex parents, Jephthah’s Children is a chronicle of everything that has gone wrong because of the movement to normalise same-sex parenting.
The personal stories of children raised by same-sex parents are heartfelt and painful, and they speak for themselves. The authors also examine the cultural, philosophical and political context of this momentous change and reflect upon the resulting increased power of the state once the organic bonds of society are dissolved.
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.”

“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.”
