This groundbreaking volume explores, and challenges, the prejudice and discrimination that gay and lesbian people experience within South African churches.
Drawing from a broad and diverse base, these stories and essays suggest that the problem the church faces is not ‘homo-sexuality’ but ‘heterosexism’ – the practice that assumes heterosexuality is normative and homosexuality a perversion. Heterosexism dictates the way in which we read the Bible, do theology, preach sermons and practice pastoral care. What the book does is to confront heterosexism by exploring what constitutes authentic human experience. Ultimately it is about our struggle to be human.
