CLGS’s Bernard Schlager on Deep Dive with Shawn C. Fettig Podcast

Have you ever felt the weight of fear when your spirituality seems to contradict your identity? The Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion‘s executive director Bernard Schlager discusses the complex relationship between faith and queerness in a new episode of Deep Dive with Shawn C. Fettig, The Bible is Not a Weapon.

They dissect not only the conflicts and tensions within religious spaces but also explore the potentialities of queer spirituality, how religious texts can be interpreted, and the importance of creating safe faith exploratory spaces for queer individuals. This genuine exploration of the queer experience within the context of spirituality and religion aims to instigate conversations, questions, and a broader understanding of the intersection between queerness and faith.
