The Gay Orientation: Does God Mind?
Grant, Darryl; Epp, Lawrence
Counseling and Values, v43 n1 p28-33 Oct 1998
Religion and spirituality can have serious negative or positive effects on the identity development of gay persons. A look at "Robert," a case study, illustrates how certain religious beliefs may harm gay persons' development, and how a compassion-oriented spirituality, reflecting contemporary theological and scriptural scholarship, can provide spiritual support. Applications for counseling are discussed. (Author/MKA)
