After the Wrath of God

AIDS, Sexuality, & American Religion

Anthony M. Petro

  • The first history of religion and the AIDS crisis in the United States
  • Looks beyond the religious right to a broader range of religious people
  • Reveals the origins of rhetoric that today fuels such heated debates as those over birth control and gay marriage
  • Demonstrates how public debates over sexuality and public health are shaped by religious ideas as much as secular ones
