Product description

Synopsis

Gay and lesbians from Catholic backgrounds have struggled to reconcile their sexual orientation with the Church's strong anti-homosexual stance for generations. Some leave the church in despair while others suppress their sexuality in order to remain in the Church. Priest Shinnick argues that homosexuality should be seen as a gift from God, not a curse. He shows how attitudes to homosexuality have developed in different Christian denominations around the world and offers a careful re-reading of Catholic teaching. He calls for a genuine dialogue between the Church and gay and lesbian people and offers a guide to the paths such a dialogue could follow.

About the Author

Maurice Shinnick is a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Adelaide, South Australia. He pioneered a pastoral program for people living with HIV/AIDS and is a chaplain to Acceptance, an organisation that supports gay and lesbian Catholics. In 1992 Fr Shinnick received an Order of Australia Medal for his work.
