Male Homosexualities and World Religions

Full Product Description

During the last 25 years, homosexuality has certainly played an important role in public debates in Western societies. Until recently, many social policy makers and religious leaders were confronted by the legalization of same-sex unions or marriage. With globalization, the civil protection of gay rights is spreading rapidly outside the Northern hemisphere, and many non-Christian religious traditions must position themselves. Today, Buddhist monks, Rabbis and ulemas make their voices heard. The interest of this book lies at the very center of a recent deployment of homosexual liberation on a larger scale. The reader will be able to understand how each of the traditions studied - Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Afro-American religions - articulates its own regulatory mechanisms of male sexuality in general, and homosexuality. Throughout this journey, diversity and respect for differences become the central theme of the book. The author's approach wants to favour a dialogue among the various religious systems and an in-depth review of their positions.
Western societies, such as France, England, or Canada, to name only these, have many immigrants belonging to different religions. Newcomers are often faced with a society where the discourse on sexuality and homosexuality is quite different from their family and culture values.

Male Homosexualities and World Religions by Pierre Hurteau was published by Palgrave Macmillan in November 2013. The ISBN for Male Homosexualities and World Religions is 9781137369888.
