Why remain Catholic: the talk
My reflections on being gay in a Church often characterized by scandal and exclusion.
Catholicism, intersectionality, dialogue, deconstruction, sexuality, race, creativity, zebra pants, etc. Lectures, papers, and conversations. By Chris Damian.
In this talk, I share with a Catholic young adult group my answer to the question, “Why remain Catholic?” I talk about being gay in the Church, experiencing rejection from Catholic priests, the meaning of baptism, the role of choice in faith, and ways we can rethink “the Church.” I’d love to hear what you think. Feel free to share in the comments!
