Pride month has generated a giant controversy in the Christian literature world after Christian publisher Eerdmans posted a “Books to Read for Pride Month” guide.

Initially, the publisher responded to the criticism by taking down the post, but has now retweeted it saying: “This weekend, we took down our post because the overwhelming vitriol was alarming, and we wanted to protect our authors. We stand by our EerdWord post, so we have tweeted the link again…Regardless of your doctrinal and ethical convictions, #PrideMonth is a good time for listening to LGBTQ+ voices.”
