New Book’s “Sexual Reality” Bursts LGBT Catholic Bubble
Deacon Jim Russell
Extract:

Writer Dan Mattson has bequeathed a lasting treasure to the Church, a spiritual masterpiece titled Why I Don’t Call Myself Gay: How I Reclaimed My Sexual Reality and Found Peace.
Might this be over-effusive praise for a book that’s only about homosexuality and identity labels? Not quite. That would be like saying St. Augustine’s Confessions was merely a book for those who have had a child out of wedlock.
In fact, sure, if you experience same-sex attraction, read this book. Also, if you seek chastity, read this book. If you want to be more holy, read this book. If you want help understanding loneliness, read this book. If you desire true joy in the midst of this vale of tears, read this book.
All in all, if you are a human who can read, read this book.
And if you can’t read, have someone else read it to you. I’m telling you, without hesitation or exaggeration, this book is that important.

In a Wall Street Journal opinion piece (Friday, 1 September 2017), Cardinal Robert Sarah notes that he wrote the foreword to that book: How Catholics Can Welcome LGBT Believers: It’s possible to stay faithful to the church’s teachings without turning away millions.

Here's the Wikipedia entry for Cardinal Sarah: Robert Sarah.
