Product Description

Review

he has paved the way for others to write positively of Christianity and homosexuality, freed from the need to answer Vatican pronouncements. A Question of Truth has left those decrees in ruins. This book is a must-read for anyone serious about homosexuality and religion. Lambda Book Report, November/December 2004

" this work is exhaustive, examining the both the biblical and natural law foundations of Catholic doctrine Recommended. Lower level undergraduates and above." -CHOICE, Jan. 2004

"Moore admits his book brings together what others have already said, but his original contribution is to apply a conceptual and linguistic analysis to this discussion. He is also an excellent pedagogue who uses examples and analogies to clarify his arguments this is an important book published at a time when many Christians are again publicly discussing homosexuality. " -Charles Curran, The Tablet

Format: Paperback
Fr Moore (OP) found the Church teaching on homosexuality, well, not really very good. Dismissing Genesis (only of interest in a Judaen sense) he puts sexual practice firmly in its modern contect. For example, the Sodom situation wasn't homosexuality as we know it - the Sodomites didn't knock politely on Lot's door and ask if the "men" (actually angels,and therefore of no determinate sex) woud like to visit a gay bar/go for a walk on the heath etc. The description of the situation makes this plain. Fr Moore was a better linguist and philospher than most of us, so we should read his discussions of St Paul's arguments with interest and -well, awe. If you've lived with the -seriously unedifying - "debate" over Canon Geoffrey John as a candidate for the Bishop of Reading (as we residents of Reading did), please read this book. It's excellent, and everything that the Church says is challenged.Fr Moore doesn't say that his arguments are better- he just says that the Church's arguments are lacking. Good scholarship and serious food for thought here.
PS For heterosexual stuff, read "The Body in Context". All his work is very good for anyone having problems with, well, all those "squishy" bits of life that we can't really get away from...

For anyone who has been damaged by the Christian view of homosexuality and sin - please read this book. It dispels one by one, by well researched and reasoned argument the 'popular' bible passages used by so many churches to make gay people feel bad about themselves! It's written by a Catholic priest and scholar and you will find within its pages plenty of evidence that the Christian position on homosexuality has been constructed over the centuries to support its many prejudices.

A book well worth reading, especially for parents and family who are trying to come to terms with and understand homosexuality in a family member, or in general.
