This book makes a critical inquiry and scrutiny of use of language of the State and the Church on homosexuals. In the name of scholarly studiousness, the language is taken onto the scale and ascertained to fall off the mark of the category under freedom of speech rather than language meant to mould characters into the desired sexual orientation. If anything, the language is challenged for trampling over of human rights with unfettered impunity. Furthermore, these two potent and influential institutions are put to task in the manner their language is inflammatory and incites violence on homosexuals. Nonetheless, the work leaves the onus on the reader to be the judge and jury.
