For What It’s Worth

Fully Grounded: The Journey and Thoughts of a Gay Catholic ~ FWIW Episode 13

March 23, 2016

To many, "gay" and "Catholic" seem like contradictory terms...after all, The Church's rules for homosexuals are quite different and more stringent than those for heterosexuals. Furthermore, some clergy and leaders in The church preach a very hard line on the matter and finally, the institution tends to represent traditionalism while open homosexuality is a matter of a modern, liberal society. What is it like, then, to be an openly gay man while remaining not just a practicing Catholic, but one who shares his gifts and volunteers in his parish and community? My friend Séan joins me to take me through his journey and discuss how he reconciles these two very important aspects of his identity.
