Many of its clergy, even those in the highest echelons of the Church, were and are homosexual. Little was known of the lives these religious people lived until the publication, in , of the groundbreaking, Gay Catholic Priests; A Study of Cognitive and Affective Dissonance. Richard Wagner is the author of that study and he is a gay priest. The media firestorm that erupted after its publication and the backlash within his religious community because of its publication eventually destroyed his public priesthood.

This story of his year battle with the Church to save his ministry exemplifies the spiritual isolation, emotional distress and ecclesiastical reprisals every gay priest most fears. It is a detailed account of the Church's take-no-prisoners attitude in stamping out whatever they perceive as a threat, especially if the threat comes from within. Read more Read less.

The thesis seemed to draw him into the spotlight of the press but they condensed modified his statements to bring into the displeasure of his superiors. Then brings in the following. The book shows how the priest had been shuffled from one level of his order to the other while Richard Wagner was trying to be patient.

The order also kept changing the charges to put him out. From that he was gay and did not practice chastity. When that did hold he was charged disobedience to that he would not come back to the main place of residence of the order. He tried all along during 13 years for them to make up their minds of what they wanted while still remaining true to both himself and the church before they finally made up their minds. The is also the section that seemed to start the whole thing started with a thesis he had written of a survey he had taking that the order had endorsed of 50 gay priests within the Catholic church.

He had several insightful questions of conflicts within the priests minds and the teaching of the church on celibacy and the thinking of what they thought the gay movement at time. Richard's first person account of his trials with the RC Church hierarchy is a fascinating documentation of a church in transition from one of social justice, mercy and post-vaticanII exuberance; to a duplicitous, retrograde entrenchmant of concern for the power and institution and not its mission. The Church pays for his phd. It is an allegorical tale that we are now used to seeing played out in the abuse scandal.

Secrecy, Sophistry and Gay Sex In The Catholic Church - Richard Wagner; | Foyles Bookstore

There is nothing personal, nothing to let you know who the author really is. He seems to think that the the minutia of the Catholic Church's authoritarian system are what matters rather than the plain fact that the system itself is flagrantly unjust and poisonous to the human spirit. As a former Catholic priest, I thought that I would find some similarities in what I went through in my departure process with Richard's story.

I did not leave for the same reasons. But Richard's written sharing of his experience resonated with me as a human being, and as a former Catholic, and a former Priest. He is almost overly kind, tolerant, and forgiving of the mean-spirited bureaucrats of his own order as well as with the Church Hierarchy. I am confident making the comparison between my struggle and the clergy sex abuse scandal, because I have first-hand knowledge of this abuse criminality. I was repeatedly sexually molested as a year-old boy in an Oblate seminary in southern Illinois.

    It reads like an ecclesiastical who-done-it. I included it in this volume, because this is precisely what set this controversy in motion. It illustrates and reveals the plight of gay Catholic clergy and the fierce repression the Vatican imposes upon them.
