In an article in The Boston Globe, Mathew Schmalz, professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross, reflected on Pope Francis’ recent statement regarding sexual orientation and morality.
Controversially, and also to much applause, Francis recently affirmed gay men who serve as priests. In effect, he reopened a conversation that many feel is necessary, especially in our contemporary world: faith and sexuality. With hope, Schmalz said about the Pope’s comments, “It is going to give people more permission to discuss issues related to sexual orientation in the church.”
Schamlz also spoke to WGBH News on the subject.
