“Contemporary Christian theological practice concerning gay men and lesbian women has not been … pertinent to their own experiences,” writes Goss, an ex-Jesuit theologian and gay activist. Drawing on the work of gay historian/philosopher Michel Foucault and other scholars, Goss sets forth a ‘queer liberation theology’ that goes beyond the notion of God’s ‘preferential option for the … poor’ to assert that God’s passion for all outcasts specifically embraces the sexually oppressed.
