A Very Queer History of the Catholic Church: Part 2
Play • 47 min

In honor of LGBTQ History Month, we are revisiting some of our favorite episodes of the podcast. Enjoy our return to Queer Church: Part 2!

Yesterday, in part one of our look at the history of same-sex love in the Catholic Church, we examined how the church’s perspective has changed over the course of 2000 years as a result of shifting social and cultural norms. Today in part two, we’re back with Dr. Lisa McClain exploring which parts of scripture are responsible for the Catholic Church’s stance on same-sex love, and we’re also joined by author Benjamin Brenkert to talk about his first-hand experience as a gay man trying to carve out a place in the church.
