The book that can help you reconcile being both gay and Catholic
Sons of the Church: The Witnessing of Gay Catholic Men spotlights testimonials from over thirty gay Catholic men to answer the question, How can you be gay and Catholic? Dr. Thomas B.

This thoughtful, surprisingly reverent book is the answer for those gay readers who long for a religious connection, as well as for Catholic readers and those in pastoral positions who want and need to hear the stories of gay people firsthand.
Sons of the Church: The Witnessing of Gay Catholic Men tells one story the story of what it is like to be gay and Catholic through the various stories of over thirty gay Catholic men. Each chapter is arranged thematically, beginning with experiences of being homosexual and Catholic during childhood and youth.

Sons of the Church uses interviews to explore:
