t is widely admitted that Roman Catholic teaching on homosexuality is schizophrenic: morally rigorous but pastorally progressive. Dominican theologian Gareth Moore says the problem stems from the church's focus on "acts" rather than "relationships." Since Vatican II and the Stonewall Riot, there has been an outpouring of lesbian and gay Catholic autobiographies--some book-length, others in the form of essays or even embedded in novels. These autobiographical "acts," argues McGinley, can provide the subjectivity--thick description that is sorely lacking in the church's understanding of gay people. In Acts of Faith, Acts of Love, McGinley explores the overlap of religious and sexual identities in the stories gay men write about themselves. The autobiographical writings of 40 gay Catholics (or former Catholics) are analyzed.

InActs of Faith, Acts of Love, McGinely explores the overlap of religious and sexual identities in the stories gay men write about themselves. The autobiographical writings of forty gay Catholics (or once Catholics) are analysed.
The work is both literary and theological on the premise that experience constitutes one of the four sources of theological reflection, along with scripture, tradition, and reason.


'An important contribution to the ongoing discussion of homosexuality and religion... resounds with the authenticity and integrity of personal narrative and academic critique. Highly recommended.'Library Journal


'McGinley has done a great service... funny... heartbreaking'Human Development
