Being Gay, Having Faith:
Dialogues on Gay Sexuality and Catholicism
In 2013, OSP hosted a three-part series called “Being Gay, Having Faith: Dialogues on Gay Sexuality and Catholicism.” The series aimed at exploring Catholic teachings on gay sexuality; it was not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to illicit thought-provoking conversations and questions and to inspire individual exploration and research of these questions. Below is information, materials, and audio for each part
of the series.
Part I – The Bible and Biblical Interpretation: What Does the Bible Say?
February 6, 2013 - How does one interpret the Bible generally and read the Scriptures regarding gay sexuality? What do certain Biblical passages say about gay sexuality?
Part II – Catholic Moral and Anthropological Theology:
What Does the Church Say?
Professor Todd Salzman, Ph.D., Professor of Catholic Theology and Chair of the Department of Theology, Creighton University
Part III – Personal Stories: What do the People say?
April 10, 2013 - Have individual Catholics who are gay or know someone who is gay been able to reconcile their faith with gay sexuality? Do they even need to be reconciled? What are the struggles and questions? Why are they practicing Catholics?
