WHY vs WHY: Gay Marriage

Rodney Croome

Bill Muehlenberg

In this WHY vs WHY™ , we pit two opposing activists & writers against each other, Rodney Croome(Yes) & Bill Muehlenberg (No). They go head-to-head, each presenting 7 key reasons why you should say yes/no to gay marriage.

After each author presents his arguments, his opponent tries to tear each of them apart, both in the book & on this website (with further rebuttals). For readers, we aim to leave nothing unanswered.

Rodney & Bill are good writers with strong, well-argued opinions. Who will you agree with? Will one of them change your mind? Read the book & find out.

In WHY vs WHY™, you get both sides, so you can decide for yourself… The books are also a great tool to help you convince others, people who don’t see the light the way you do. Buy them a copy!
