Gwen Richardson Tackles the Controversial Issue of Homosexuality in America in New Book, "Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage"
ATLANTA, GA, (December 30, 2013) – The controversial issue of homosexuality seems to have taken over the national dialogue at times, and it has raised questions in the national conscience of America.
In just a few years, the discussion surrounding homosexuality has been pushed to the forefront ahead of what some would say are more pressing economic, political and social issues. Discussions surrounding sexuality have become the order of the day. National polls have been taken that suggest the majority of Americans support legalizing gay marriage. Christians and other concerned citizens have spoken out against the erosion of the country's moral fabric, most recently highlighted by the aftermath of comments by Phil Robertson of A&E's hit reality show, "Duck Dynasty".
In her latest book, Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage, author Gwen Richardson suggests that the media has been a strong force behind the sudden change of national opinion on homosexuality. Gwen writes, "Through a carefully orchestrated system of selective reporting, slanted coverage and rewards and punishments, national media have gradually nudged public opinion in the direction of approval of gay marriage."
Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage examines the methods used by the media to promote homosexual marriage over the past 20 years, the effects of its promotion on the public discourse, and a plan of action citizens can utilize to be better informed as the debate on this important issue moves forward.
Gwen Richardson writes from a balanced, Christian worldview to give readers faith-based knowledge of this controversial subject. Well-documented and researched, Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage will assist readers in making informed decisions about their beliefs and how to stand firm on those beliefs in the face of negativity, other people's opinions, and the media.
Gwen Richardson is an author, publicist and entrepreneur. As an author, she has three other books, two non-fiction and one fiction. Her latest book, Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage, takes a critical look at media bias on the issue of gay marriage. Write It Right: The Guide To Self-Publishing Your Best Book, is essential for aspiring authors who want to know the ins and outs of self-publishing. Her debut novel, The Genesis Files, released in June 2012, is a mystery/thriller. Gwen has been an entrepreneur for more than 20 years, and is a native of Newport News, Va.
