There are those that visit homosexual bars and salsa golf equipment with rosaries of their wallet, and who make camp chapels in their residing rooms. Others input church buildings with love letters hidden of their baggage, simply because their desire for God and their desire for romance refuse to slot into diversified cubicles. yet what goodness and righteousness can be triumphant while you are in love with anyone whom you're ecclesiastically now not imagined to love? the place is God in a salsa bar?
The Queer God introduces a brand new theology from the margins of sexual deviance and monetary exclusion. Its chapters on Bisexual Theology, Sadean holiness, homosexual worship in Brazil and Queer sainthood mark the hunt for a distinct face of God - the Queer God who demanding situations the oppressive powers of straight orthodoxy, whiteness and worldwide capitalism. encouraged by way of the transgressive areas of Latin American spirituality, the place the studies of slum teenagers merge with Queer interpretations of grace and holiness, The Queer God seeks to free up God from the closet of conventional Christian idea, and to include God's half within the lives of gays, lesbians and the poor.
Only a theology that dares to be radical can exhibit us the presence of God in our occasions. The Queer God creates an idea of holiness that overcomes sexual and colonial prejudices and exhibits how Queer Theology is finally the hunt for God's personal deliverance. utilizing Liberation Theology and Queer conception, it exposes the sexual roots that underlie all theology, and takes the quest for God to new depths of social and sexual exclusion.
