JIMMY CARTER AND BOOK 390x (GETTY) ADVOCATE.COMJames Alexander Langteaux

James Alexander Langteaux spent several years working with
noted homophobe Pat Robertson as a producer and host on the Christian
Broadcasting Network, then realized that “playing strip poker with the big wigs
in Christianity today while hiding the gay card up my sleeve is a game I no
longer wish to play,” he writes
in the memoir Gay Conversations With God: Straight Talk on Fanatics, Fags
and the God Who Loves Us All.
He chronicles
his journey from the Christian right to a place of spiritual and sexual
self-acceptance in lively, often raunchy prose. It’s a 21st-century
journey on the path taken two decades ago by Mel White, who came out as a gay
Christian and founded the LGBT activist group Soulforce after having been a
ghostwriter for such antigay figures as Robertson and Jerry Falwell.
