Christianity and sexuality Published Elsewhere

Published in Logos: A Catholic Perspective on Homoerotic Desire

My first academic article is now out! You can find it in the Winter 2019 edition of Logos Journal, alongside articles on capital punishment, Therese of Lisieux, consecrated widows in the Church, and Teresa’s Dark Night. My article focuses on the question of homoerotic desire, attempting to shift the current cultural conversations in the Church on homosexual lust and marriage to more fundamental conversations on same-sex desire, love, and creativity. It looks at Church history and tradition, drawing on the resources of the past to give a fresh perspective on today’s labored debates. You can find it at Project Muse here!

    Chris!! Very excited to read your article in Logos…but I cannot access it without affiliation.

    Also, dear one…when you are ready and possibly in BCS..I’d love to interview you for my radio show. My theme is human formation…which focuses on Virtue…I’m open for suggestions on topic but feel called to ask you about the virtue of chastity..what it means to ALL of us…love your mind! Love family! Supporting you 110%. You need to be heard and I’m here to give you another format.

    With Joy and Love! Pam Marvin

    PS I’m a big fan!

      Thank you for your kind words! As it so happens, I’ll be back in BCS the weekend of March 22. I’ll probably have a busy schedule, but I may have some time that Saturday morning!
