A challenge to gay Catholics

Mark Jordon's book does an adequate job of discussing the systematic Catholic language that does now allow for disagreement or dissent. Beyond that Jordan reveals how homerotic the liturgy and the beauracracy of the Church is. Jordan then challenges to begin a new Catholic community. Not a community such as Dignity, but one in which a new language and a new way of saying homosexual can become the foundation of a new teaching.

For some Gay Catholics, who wish to stay within the church, this may seem like whistling past the cemetery. But it may be the only way one can move the Catholic Church, albeit probably through another milennium, into not only the recognition that its basis is homoerotic, but to embrace it as well.

One wonders, though, how this community begins. Where are the writers, the liturgists, the theologians? The only other answer for gay Catholics is to find another denomination or marginal quasi Christian group.

Jordon's idea may be quite exciting.

Interesting

A bit blabby, but overall quite interesting. If you read history, which some of the previous reviewers evidently have not, the church has always been a haven for those interested in alternative lifestyles. This is a problem when it focuses on children, of course. After all, the Marquis de Sade claimed that he learned his various perversions from the Jesuit priests who tutored him as a child.
