Teaser Tuesdays!


Okay, I am back from the West Coast and ready for an episode of Tuesday Teasers! This week's teaser is from a book I just finished - the review should be posted next week - called God Says No. It's the story of a deeply religious man coming to terms with his homosexuality. There is pain and humor and a whole lot of struggle wrapped up his story and it has a lot of great quotes. I was tempted by the funny ones, but this is one that made me think:
"How can George say that God thinks homosexuality doesn't exist? That's like saying God thinks dust don't exist and then spending your whole life vacuuming the rug."
What teased YOU this week?
