Compact | Rate recommendations
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679751645, Paperback)Both highly praised and intensely controversial, this brilliant book produces dramatic evidence that at one time the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches not only sanctioned unions between partners of the same sex, but sanctified them--in ceremonies strikingly similar to heterosexual marriage ceremonies.
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:04:24 -0400)
The author traces same-sex unions from Platonic Greece, to Rome, to Christianized Europe, including Catholic and Orthodox liturgies to bless same-sex unions.
