Retrieving real Christianity
“Believe it or not, Jesus hardly ever spoke about sex or sexual sins.” So says Richard Leonard SJ in this latest part of an extended interview on his new book, The Law of Love. Speaking with Pat Coyle of Irish Jesuit Communications, he discusses how Christianity became unbalanced in its emphasis on sin and sexuality.
He talks also about the Church’s evolving attitude on homosexuality and Pope Francis’ reaching out to the gay community and apologising to them.
He also says we must return to the Gospels as the source of all that is true and real in Christianity – something he hopes to articulate in modern-day language in The Law of Love.
