Synopsis:

There are those who go to queer bars and salsa clubs with rosaries in their pockets, and build camp shrines from living-room kitsch. And there are others who read sexual promiscuity as part of God's all-embracing edict to 'love one another', making their search for love and truth a physical one. The Queer God is about radical sexuality, poverty, criticism of heterosexual orthodoxy and theology. In chapters on salsa and theology, deviant theologians, queering hermeneutics, Sade and holiness, it seeks to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought and embrace His part in the lives of gays and lesbians worldwide. In The Queer God , Marcella Althaus-Reid reflects on Latin American spiritual traditions and considers the need for a Queer concept of holiness and a theology of grace outside colonial parameters. It exposes the ideological sexual roots of western theology whilst taking the search for God at the margins, into new depths of social and sexual exclusion.

Book Description Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.There are those who go to gay bars and salsa clubs with rosaries in their pockets, and who make camp chapels of their living rooms. Others enter churches with love letters hidden in their bags, because their need for God and their need for love refuse to fit into different compartments. But what goodness and righteousness can prevail if you are in love with someone whom you are ecclesiastically not supposed to love? Where is God in a salsa bar? The Queer God introduces a new theology from the margins of sexual deviance and economic exclusion. Its chapters on Bisexual Theology, Sadean holiness, gay worship in Brazil and Queer sainthood mark the search for a different face of God - the Queer God who challenges the oppressive powers of heterosexual orthodoxy, whiteness and global capitalism. Inspired by the transgressive spaces of Latin American spirituality, where the experiences of slum children merge with Queer interpretations of grace and holiness, The Queer God seeks to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought, and to embrace God s part in the lives of gays, lesbians and the poor. Only a theology that dares to be radical can show us the presence of God in our times. The Queer God creates a concept of holiness that overcomes sexual and colonial prejudices and shows how Queer Theology is ultimately the search for God s own deliverance. Using Liberation Theology and Queer Theory, it exposes the sexual roots that underlie all theology, and takes the search for God to new depths of social and sexual exclusion.
