ESSAYS:

Previously unreleased! December 4, 1999: Cultural Iceberg: Hidden Issues Beneath the California Knight Initiative
I wrote this essay as an analysis of the ideologies behind California's "defense of marriage" ballot initiative, and more generally as an analysis of the Christian right's ongoing efforts to block marriage equality in the U.S. I never got around to releasing this essay prior to the March 2000 election, but now I've finally made it available here.

October 2, 2000: CRUCIFYING ZACCHAEUS: A faith-based response to the John Paulk incident

April 2, 2002: Turning Point: the Need to Escalate the Struggle for LGBT Equality within the PCUSA
