God, Gender, and Justice: Power Begins with the Body

at Arlington Street Church
351 Boylston Street
Boston, MA

Many people dismiss the so-called ‘Christian Right’ as a bunch of crazy fanatics, especially when it comes to homosexuality.  But what if the Right is more right than it knows?  What if liberated sexuality does indeed look like ‘the end of civilization’ for those of a mythic, fundamentalist bent?  On this Sunday afternoon, join Jay Michaelson for a look at Biblical text, anthropology, and some truly wild Christian Right quotes, to see how ancient and contemporary fears of homosexuality are similar (and different), and how they point to the fundamental Western obsession with imposing order on chaos.  All are welcome!
