God Loves the Freaks book

Hey all! I'm a Christian Goth and Geek and author of God Loves the Freaks. It's a book for all of us who are a bit... different... and still Christians. I dearly hope and pray this book finds its way into the mainstream church so they can understand us and stop trying to make people into cookie cutter Christians -- or worse, drive people away!

The book is here:

Here's a synopsis...


God Loves the Freaks points to a serious issue facing the church today -- reaching out to subcultures and those who are considered the freaks of society. The "American Christianity" cult that many churches belong to accepts only members who dress, speak and act exactly the same way. We have somehow turned the church into an elite club where only those who follow man-made cultural rules are welcome. Why is it acceptable for someone to show up in church in traditional Chinese clothing, for instance, but not for someone to have a pink mohawk? The church tries to change the freaks of society, or worse, turns them away at the door. Jesus reached out to those in society who were different, who were outcast -- the freaks. Stephen Weese paints a vision of a church living by grace, in unity; without the legalism that divides and causes us to shun others based on outward appearance. God looks at the heart and he loves everyone, including the freaks. If God loves the freaks, shouldn't the church as well?


I didn't write this book to make money... I just want people to know about it.. how God loves all kinds of people, "normal" or different or FREAK it doesn't matter. God looks at the INSIDE not the outside. He made us all different and it is a beautiful thing. So check it out if you like... and hi to everyone in the group!
