BIBLE AND HOMOSEXUALITY, THE


"EX-GAY" MOVEMENT





SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

  • On a separate web page see the report on the delivery of
    the paper:  "They tore him [Steve Parelli] apart.  Baptist
    historians rose and denounced his methodology."  --John
    Marks, Reasons to Believe, c2008, page 362.  For a decade, Marks
    wrote for U.S. News & World Report, after which he became a
    producer for 60 Minutes

  • This sermon is text-based from the Song of Solomon; the contact
    person had asked for a sermon of this nature as a cap-stone to
    previous lectures already received on Marriage Equality which had
    been more technical in nature; he asked me for something more
    inspirational on the topic rather than technical



PERSONAL/BIOGRAPHICAL        

        January 24, 2113
    As a gay activist and son, I finally, openly reflect on his mother's inability,
    after 15 years, to escape her homophobic religious surroundings in which
    my father, her husband, who is a lay-pastor, dominates her life, manipulating
    her landscape through the grid of his own dreaded, hidden, homoerotic
    secret feelings.

AFRICA RELATED WRITINGS

    This 2007 research project was originally written by Steve Parelli as a
    PowerPoint presentation for his Queen College (City University of New York)
    2009 Spring course Language and Cross-Cultural Communications (MA in
    Applied Linguistics, 2010).  Jose Ortiz was completely in charge of making
    and logging the recordings on site.  His work was invaluable.  Findings were
    co-considered by both Steve and Jose.  The course professor encouraged
    Steve to put his findings into a paper for possible publication.
