One of the book reviews of Soulfully Gay over at Goodreads says:
A very interesting read, especially for people who wonder at how same-gender orientation “works” within traditional Christian (in this case Catholic) culture. There are certainly some hard/harsh moments, but also quite a few gems. Indeed, there was one section that I found so compelling (re: the heterosexism of religion and Divine homophilia vs heterophilia) that I may focus on it in doctoral studies in the future.
Obviously, not a book for everyone…but it certainly gave me a few things to think about.
This reviewer gave me 4 stars out of 5. A little disappointing not to get 5 stars, since the book gave the guy an idea he thought about doing a doctorate in, but I’ll take it! 🙂
Please, if you’re thinking about doing a Ph.D. or Th.D. on a topic related to Gay Studies, Queer Theology, LGBT Studies, Gay Theology, LGBT Theology, etc., get a hold of Soulfully Gay and expand on its conception of Homophilia (or critique it, if you’re inclined, or both). What could be more important than contributing to knowledge of the completely marginalized and misunderstood conception that may be at the root of every religion’s secret core, aligned to Agape, Christ Principle, Creation, Involution, and Self-Immanence?
(It hasn’t been my calling to write an academic dissertation on the topic. It’s best if others play that part.)
