Building a Bridge: The Catholic Church and the LGBT Community
September 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In his recently published a book on the relationship between the Catholic Church and LGBT people, acclaimed writer and spiritual guide James Martin, S.J., urges members of these two communities to treat each other with ”respect, compassion, and sensitivity.”
What are the prospects for mutual understanding and engagement between these groups, and where are the limits? Join Father Martin and Patrick Hornbeck, chair of Fordham’s Department of Theology, for an evening of lively conversation and debate. The discussion will be moderated by Natalia Imperatori-Lee, FCRH ’98, professor of religious studies at Manhattan College.
This event is sponsored by Fordham’s Department of Theology in association with America Media and Fordham’s Office of Alumni Relations.
