Sphero explains that the Old Testament does not prohibit homosexuality, furthermore that Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing whatsoever to do with homosexuality, but rather with inhospitality, pride, and a society's blood-thirst for violence. Christ said that some people were meant to be born as gay or lesbian; he blessed a gay relationship between a Roman Centurion and his lover, and he spoke boldly against any form of homophobia.

Offers a way to undo the inextricable American knot of sex, politics, religion, and power American politics are obsessed with sex. Before the first televised presidential debate, John F. Kennedy trailed Richard Nixon in the polls. As Americans tuned in, however, they found Kennedy a younger, more vivacious, and more attractive choice than Nixon. Sexier. The political significance of Kennedy’s telegenic sex appeal is now widely accepted – but taking sexual politics seriously is not. Janet R. Jakobsen examines how, for the last several decades, gender and sexuality have reappeared time and again at the center of political life, marked by a series of widely recognized issues and movements – women’s liberation and gay liberation in the 1960s and ’70s, the AIDS crisis and ACT UP in the ‘80s and ’90s, welfare and immigration “reform” in the ‘90s, wars claiming to “save women” in the 2000s, and battles over health care in the 2010s, to recent demands for reproductive justice, trans liberation, and the explosive exposures of #MeToo. Religion has been wound up in these political struggles, and blamed for not a little of the resistance to meaningful change in America political life. Jakobsen acknowledges that religion is a force to be reckoned with, but decisively breaks with the common sense that religion and sex are the fixed binary of American political life. She instead follows the kaleidoscopic ways in which sexual politics are embedded in social relations of all kinds – not only the intimate relations of love and family with which gender and sex are routinely associated, but also secularism, freedom, race, disability, capitalism, nation and state, housing and the environment. In the midst of these obsessions, Jakobsen’s promiscuous ethical imagination guides us forward. Drawing on examples from collaborative projects among activists, academics and artists, Jakobsen shows that sexual politics can contribute to building justice from the ground up. Gender and sexual relations are practices through which values emerge and communities are made. Sex and desire, gender and embodiment emerge as bases of ethical possibility, breaking political stalemate and opening new possibility.

"This is not another book about why religion should accept lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Instead it moves off the defensive, and asks why any self-respecting queer would want to have anything to do with spirituality. Answers come from a diverse collection of holy homos, including Buddhists, Christians, Jews, Neo-Pagans and New-Agers, as well as queers who seek spirituality through drugs, nature, massage, dance, art - and sex." "There are contributions from Rabbi Lionel Blue, Reverend Richard Kirker, Catherine Treasure, Father Bernard Lynch, Rabbi Sheila Shulman, Fernando Guasch, Reverend Jean White, Maitreyabandhu, and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence - along with over sixty others."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The last ten years have witnessed a sea-change amongst lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Christians. Many are no longer content to beg a place at the pre-existing table of the institutional Churches. Rather they have found a new confidence in their ability to define their own experience and think theologically about it. Queer theology is emerging as a distinctive, radical and explosive theological tradition of which all in the churches will eventually have to take notice. This theology exposes the heterosexist thought patterns and assumptions that underlie many Christian doctrines and practices and rescues parts of the tradition helpful to queer Christians which may have been lost along the way. Most importantly of all, it fashions Christian theologies untainted by homophobia and heterosexism. This book makes queer theology available and accessible to a general reader and encourages the reader to become part of the ongoing development of this theology. It is aimed primarily at queer people who are either new to Christianity or those who are interested in reflecting upon their Christian faith from a queer perspective. It is a study guide which can be used by groups and by individuals and contains exercises and liturgies as well as explanations of queer theology. Subjects covered include the bible, salvation, Christ, body theology, God, the church, death and ethics. Christian lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered support groups, churches, individuals
