Mind Your Own Life: The Journey Back to Love At last! An authentic message of love and acceptance! Life-enhancing semi-autobiography. Raised a devout Christian in the South and endeavoring to uphold indoctrinated beliefs, Anson struggled to find true affirmation amongst the ambiguity of being gay with religious beliefs that espoused intolerance. After a brief military stint, he married and fathered two children, simultaneously battling depression, anger and fear before finally accepting that he was inherently a gay man. This book deals head on with the divisive issues of religion and politics that have for centuries caused rifts between, countries, families, and facilitated a recent spate of bullying and suicide among teens and gays. He secretly harbored for many years his struggle to suppress his nascent sexuality in hopes of escaping the paradox of being gay with Christian beliefs, hopeful that being gay would vanish and relieve this tremendous burden. Anson sought validation from a religion that despised him wholly. This book; targeting parents, adults, and teens; chronicles Anson’s struggles with depression, denial, and acceptance in the face of extreme homophobia perpetuated by religion, politics and false beliefs. Anson assertively portrays an uncorrupted universal love and acceptance as our inherent birthright and explores the connection with our spirituality, sexuality, and morality. Anson tell his story with sublime prose and grace with inquisitive insight of our human experience. His story is beautifully rendered in a way that is challenging, thought-provoking and inspirational. It hits home for many and told in a way that you will not soon forget.

The 1990s are becoming known as the decade of privacy invasion due to myriad social and technological developments infringing upon our personal liberty - the information revolution, the growing fears about crime, the ongoing fight over health reform, the gossip-hungry media, the expansion of data banks, and a renewed concern with community standards. As a result, individuals and organized groups are fighting to hold onto independence and freedom against those trying to expose the private sector to public scrutiny. Dr. Gini Graham Scott, a nationally recognized expert on personal privacy and other related issues, gives a shrewd overview of current privacy battles in and out of the courtroom that are directly influencing what can remain private. In addition, this book brilliantly delineates the growing impact of print and broadcast media - citing examples of early privacy skirmishes generated by the press back in the late 1800s, the extensive coverage of government communist witch-hunts and the anti-war/antiestablishment demonstrations and counterreactions during the 1960s, and today's transformation of news agencies into tabloid reporting - to show our current difficulties in controlling the scope and power of the media in their quest for information. Mind Your Own Business skillfully steers an objective course in explaining recent controversial views within these battles, while advocating the right of individuals to maintain as much personal privacy protection as possible. This book will be of undeniable importance for sociologists, legal and medical professionals, individual rights' advocates, politicians, and anyone who wants the right to control what others do or do not have a right to know about themselves.
