From clerical closet to coming out: part 3
"I had at least five priests and hyper-religious people say, 'Wouldn't it be better for you to just have a friend-with-benefits?"

This is the third part of my recorded conversation with Danny Peterson. In this part, we discuss his experience as a closeted priest on Grindr, how certain presentations of Catholic theology contribute to addictive cycles, angers and fears towards the Church, getting clarity from a seven-foot crucifix in the back of his car, his advice for closeted priests who may be struggling with chastity, and how he uses the beautiful and empowering things he learned in the seminary and priesthood to serve others today. Please note that this conversation includes adult language and themes and may not be suitable for young children.
