"Many good people, in good faith, while sympathising with the ethical and ecclesiastical situation of lesbian and gay Christians, still regard homosexuality as unnatural. Other good people, in just as good faith, defend homosexuality on grounds of personal plight and involuntary sexual orientation - with private misgivings that this defence may also be applied to paedophilia. This little book provides not only a useful argument for a more merciful reading of Scripture than that usually employed to condemn same-sex relationships, but also a philosophical analysis of the nature of 'nature'. Finding that all, and only, those relationships which are harmonious can be considered natural, the author invites us to only say the Word, that we may all be healed. A former Franciscan friar, Dr Alan McManus wrote his doctoral thesis, Alchemy at the Chalkface: Pirsig, Pedagogy and the Metaphysics of Quality, at the University of Glasgow. Holding degrees in Church History/ Practical Theology and Religious Studies, he has taught EFL at home and abroad, Spanish Italian to adults and Religious, Moral Philosophical Studies in comprehensive schools in Scotland. He has published articles on political philosophy and WW1 remembrance in the online journal Citizenship, Social and Economics Education. He is a member of Affirmation Scotland."-- Provided by publisher.
