Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807010340, Hardcover)One of the major opponents of the gay rights movement has been conservative, organized Christian churches. Gay lives and gay sexuality have been viewed by many Christians as antithetical to their religious beliefs and dangerous to society as a whole. In Sex and the Church, theologian Kathy Rudy reevaluates traditional Christian positions on both sexuality and gender and comes up with surprising questions and conclusions. Is gender a good--or even moral--way to evaluate a person's relationship to God? How do we discuss the morality of sexual behavior? Is the traditional family the best social structure for a Christian commitment? Rudy is respectful to mainstream Christian beliefs but determined to pursue her arguments even when they conflict with orthodoxy. Rudy's text is smart, incisive, and fearless in its attempt to locate the meaning and truth of "morality" in sexual desire and everyday life.
