Leftists, Lesbians, and Religion

At the Left Hand of God
"From same-sex marriage to Mel Gibson's gory take on the Crucifixion, the new wedge issue is religiosity, not to be confused with faith"
By Anna Quindlen, Newsweek, March 8 issue 2004
"Once the dichotomy at the far margins was combined with the positions we liberals hold on certain social issues, especially those related to the separation of church and state, what emerged was the knee-jerk assumption that those with left leanings were never people of faith. This was also complicated by the fact that many of us not only lack a simplistic way to talk about the subject but also resent even being asked to do it, to slap the contents of our soul down to establish the bona fides of our political positions. Those positions are the product of the ability humans have been given to reason, to interpret and to understand, not some literal textual interpretation that makes dialogue or disagreement unnecessary or subversive."

Earlier to day I was reading this.
"The Lesbian of Darkness" by Joel Rosenberg
"I was thinking the other day how different it would be for my sister Dale, if she were to be the brunt of bigotry for being left-handed instead of a lesbian."

Do you have chapter and verse on that? I couldn't find it.
