The podcast of the Diversity and Spirituality Network


Mar 7, 2018

Two male gay priests talk about the distinctive nature of gay spirituality, institutional Christianity's attitudes towards LGBT people, and why there are high numbers of gays in the clergy. They also share how they realized their spiritual calling despite growing up within a hostile religious environment, the advice they would give to a young gay person who sees him or herself as religious and spiritual,  and their belief that the on-the-ground acceptance of gay people is often at variance with doctrinal non-acceptance.

Interviewees include Michael Ruk, the pastor of the Episcopal St. Philips Church in New Hope, Pa, and John Stasio, a "post Roman" Catholic priest and founding director of Easton Mountain, a retreat center near Albany New York.
