Orthodox Church and Homosexuality

Hi James, that’s a great website and a fascinating interview.

I love what he has to say about gender but I do find his ideas that gay people are automatically called to a life of celibacy unpalatable.

I know that church leaders must draw on scripture and tradition above all, and that they must engage with the thinking of the church world wide, but even so they do this over the years from very different societies. Perhaps increased openness and LGBT tolerance in those countries where the Orthodox Church is the majority faith will in time ‘produce’ different thinking. While it seems unlikely that change will happen any time soon, I’m getting the feeling that it is at least possible.

Thanks for the tips about fasting etc. I’ll look into it
