Start Date

Description

In our shared existence – in this city, in the United States - differing religious traditions have widely divergent attitudes towards sexual ethics. Underlying these attitudes are fundamental principles concerning what it is to be human, and the place of sexuality in our identity and our society. What does our faith have to do with our sexuality? Given our differences, can we find a common way of integrating sexuality and spirituality, and find norms for social behavior? Or is my sexuality my own business and no-one else’s?

theme of the day:

identities. the multiple faces of convivencia

“Protestant, Catholic and Jew” no longer works to describe either us or the US. Whose voices get heard at the table? Can I be Muslim and American? Or do I have to choose? Whose religion/ethnicity/sexuality/class/politics = US?
