UCC minister Candace Chellew-Hodge offers gay Christians a guide to becoming strong in faith and love in the midst of hatred by saying "no" to external and internal messages of worthlessness. She shows that being a gay person and a faithful person is not a contradiction, and that bigoted "Christians" cannot be represented in the press as "the other side of the issue." Quaker pastor Phil Gulley even gets mentioned, as Chellew-Hodge relates to his message that those who reacted hatefully to his message of encompassing salvation (in the controversial book If Grace is True) had "rage coming from their stuff" and own problems.
