Why should Americans who are not gay care about gay rights? In Created Equal, Michael Nava and Robert Dawidoff argue that the movement for gay equality is central to the continuing defense of individual liberty in America. Beginning with an examination of the determined assault on gay issues by the religious right, the authors show how this sectarian movement to legislate private religious morality into law undermines the purpose of American constitutional government: the protection of the individual's right to determine how best to live his or her life. The book starts from the premise that gay men and lesbians are, first and foremost, American citizens, and then looks to what rights belong to every individual American citizen, arguing from the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Addressing their argument to the great majority of their fellow Americans, Dawidoff and Nava emphasize that what is at stake is not the fate of the gay community, but the future of constitutional principle and the rights of free individuals in American society.

In Created Equal, Joshua Berman engages the text of the Hebrew Bible from a novel perspective, considering it as a document of social and political thought. He proposes that the Pentateuch can be read as the earliest prescription on record for the establishment of an egalitarian polity. What emerges is the blueprint for a society that would stand in stark contrast to the surrounding cultures of the ancient Near East -- Egypt, Mesopotamia, Ugarit, and the Hittite Empire - in which the hierarchical structure of the polity was centered on the figure of the king and his retinue. Berman shows that an egalitarian ideal is articulated in comprehensive fashion in the Pentateuch and is expressed in its theology, politics, economics, use of technologies of communication, and in its narrative literature. Throughout, he invokes parallels from the modern period as heuristic devices to illuminate ancient developments. Thus, for example, the constitutional principles in the Book of Deuteronomy are examined in the light of those espoused by Montesquieu, and the rise of the novel in 18th-century England serves to illuminate the advent of new modes of storytelling in biblical narrative.

Desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church, Aleksandra Kowalski turns to Thomas Patrick O'Reilly, one of the wealthiest and most successful trial lawyers in Houston, Texas. Tommy believes the Catholic Church has no basis under United States law to exclude women from the seminary and files suit against the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and Archbishop Jorge Sierra for sex discrimination without justifiable cause. The Catholic Church hires Monsignor Enrico Renzulli, the General Counsel of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. Renzulli, a priest and Harvard-educated attorney, has substantial trial experience and has taken on and beaten lawyers considerably smarter than O'Reilly. He believes the lawsuit should be summarily dismissed because the First Amendment of the United States Constitution grants all citizens the freedom of religion, and it prevents a federal court from interfering with the ecclesiastical rules of any church, including the Catholic Church. But watching and waiting in the wings is an extreme and tyrannical sect unaffiliated with the Catholic Church. As the trial unfolds and the legal proceedings begin to undermine the sacred Catholic Church teaching, a right-wing extremist and a member of the Holy Mother Church concocts a plot to stop the heresy against God that includes kidnapping and murder. Will the First Amendment protect the Catholic Church and supersede all? Will Tommy O'Reilly come through? Will Aleksandra Kowalski survive this ordeal? Find out in R.A. Brown's gripping legal thriller, "Created Equal."

This story deals with a retired sewer plant worker who finds a kitten abandoned at the plant. With the aid of the veterinarian and good nursing care, he manages to bring the kitten back into a state of good health. The main characters are Alex Yates and a talking cat named Dexter that is addicted to LAND O’LAKES cheese, has an IQ of 162, and is also a male chauvinist feline. The story reveals how Dexter guides and directs Alex through the trials of using his talents and gifts for the common good. Alex does this by leaping into the bodies of people and actually becoming them. Many times Dexter has to order Alex to leave a body because he’s becoming completely absorbed into the new personality. The writing deals with love, despair, heartache, dependence, and independence. The story reveals to the reader that people mistakenly live for tomorrow while forgetting about today. Although at first Dexter is not allowed to violate man’s free will, he inadvertently skirts around the issue by becoming a police officer for the Culpeper Police Department. In the end, as Dexter believes that his job is done, the story has a shocking ending, which backfires right back at Dexter. This omniscient cat is in for a shock of his own. This is a sequel to Cliff Zane: Guilty as Charged. Reflective words inferred in the writing: We are all born with talents that are gifts from God. We cannot earn or buy them. They are a gift. We all have different gifts. Some have many. Some have few. In the next life we shall be measured by what we did with our gifts. We don’t get to keep what we have. We’re supposed to give it away.

The inequalities of man are certainly a big theme of this story. But its biggest dilemma is that of choice. Having established two opposing concepts, the thrill of freedom and the evil of slavery, the story heads toward a plotthe inevitable confrontation between the two concepts. The two most controversial characters of the story face each other in the end. One has all the power necessary to control the other one's fate, but the other one, a slave, has now gained an advantage. She has reached a land where she is free. She can finally break the bonds that enslave her. But will she? Will she walk away from the love of a child that sees her as her mother? More important, the battle seems to change protagonists. It is now freedom against love, love for a man that a slave woman cannot have, and thirst for a freedom that will dissipate by accepting the other.

|Author||: Ashton Gray|
Ashton Gray's "Created Equal: The Greatest Lie" destroys forever a vicious and downright deadly lie that has nearly choked the life out of philosophy, culture, education, politics, and wisdom around the world for over 300 years: the Lockean lunacy that all men are "equal and independent." Gray launches a merciless, relentless, full-scale assault on absurd fixed ideas that are practically worshipped in the not-so-hallowed halls of academia.. Some of his opening few lines express it best: =============== The heavens have yet to reveal two equal stars. Every planet in the cosmos is different from every other planet. No rock or boulder ever is equal to any other. No two grains of sand match exactly. Go into a field or lawn and pick a blade of grass; you hold in your hands a unique creation that has no equal anywhere in the world, or in the universe. The very fact that it is in your hands sets it apart, but even before you picked it, it occupied its own space. It pointed in its own direction. It had its own length, veining, coloring, texture, thickness, weight, roots, and arrangement of unique cells that formed the whole, every detail setting it significantly, dramatically apart from every other blade of grass that exists, that ever has existed, or that ever will exist. From the cosmic to the microscopic, from the macrocosm to the microcosm, from stellar magnitudes down to molecular level and beyond, there is one message that this universe-however it got here-seems relentlessly intent on dictating, displaying, proving, over and over, infinitely: "There shall be no thing equal to any other." Yet one of the most universal, pervasive, and inescapable beliefs in the world today is that "all men are created equal." It is in the schools. It is in the marketplace. It is in the workplace. It is in the neighborhood. It is in the statehouse. It belongs in the madhouse. It is a meaningless myth. It is the greatest lie. =============== This work is destined to be one of the most controversial and revolutionary books of the modern age. One reader of the manuscript said: "This has freed me from intellectual chains I never even knew I had, but that I have worn through every minute of my life from the day I was born." May you, and the world, never be the same again.
