    1. This book tackles the issue of sexual freedom from the interesting perspective of comparing the freedom of sexual expression to that of religious freedom. While the book's main focus is on the rights of gays and lesbians, the viewpoints presented in this book apply just as well to all sexual minorities.The authors point out that the basis for all state and federal laws regulating consensual adult activity are religious in origin. Civil laws regulating American marriage are a place where religiou [...]

    2. Despite the heavy focus on and enumeration of legal cases and important social movements/changes, the authors make a clear and compelling argument for sexual freedom (a term which gains a new, theoretical basis). The problem addressed in Love the Sin is universally discussable, but the specific case is only relevant for the United States, and thus, the book will appeal mostly to citizens of the U.S. and/or those who have a deep interest in the country's social background.

    3. This book presents some original ideas that might be easily classified as "counterintuitive." One such example would be the authors' desire for there to be an expanding amount of religious freedom along with an expanded amount of sexual freedom in the United States. The authors link religious freedoms and sexual freedoms by noting that freedom from the establishment of religion should mean more religious and sexual freedom. The writers demonstrate how this is not the case in the present-day US w [...]

    4. Jakobsen and Pellegrini do not go far enough in their analysis. I was left wondering "so what?" after each and every chapter.

    5. "Not only does tolerance reinforce structural inequality, but it also sets up a political culture in which extremism, rather than injustice, is the major problem to be addressed in public life. In a public organized around tolerance, the question is not whether we as a society have created unjust (and violent) social hierarchies, but whether we as individuals hate anyone. This disabling structure of tolerance has important implications for participatory democracy because it puts those who take u [...]

    6. While I found Jakobsen and Pellegrini’s (J&P) case against sexual conservatism compelling, the lack of definition for a number of key terms weakened their critique and left many openings for objection. All the worse is that defining these terms could’ve been a simple matter of an extra sentence or footnote. Democracy and toleration are two salient examples.Throughout the book, J&P appeal to democracy as a vital means for securing sexual freedom. However, if democracy simply means rul [...]

    7. Some interesting claims. Only, they we're followed by boring, unneeded writing.

    8. What we have here is a case of mistaken marketing. The title, Love the Sin, and the cover (which contains mild, painted nudity and is not shown) give the impression of an in-your-face anti-religious political book. I was interested in the arguments but prepared to ignore the style in which they were delivered. Instead, this is a surprisingly academic book about the structure of social arguments in the United States. I assume it was a publisher’s effort to get people to buy the book, but still. [...]

    9. I actually took a course at NYU with Professor Ann Pellegrini, the co-author of this book. She'd developed the class around this text, and somehow, it worked. Love the Sin is really eye-opening, and takes a nice, critical look at American society.

    10. Would be four stars, but things have changed so much in the American political landscape since it was written that quite a bit of it is dated.

    11. Really enjoyed the first part and learned a lot about the German Revolution. Found the descriptions of the post-Armistice celebrations a bit boring and endless

    13. Very interesting thesis, but the argument was solid & I'm sold.
