Are there ANY alternative paths into mutually respectful civil and hopeful dialogue? Not as things currently stand in the popular mindset But recently there have been a few grounds for hope This book is one of themParis is an anthropologist and a Christian and she has specialised in the area of sexuality over many years The book has a provocative title but it gets to the heart of what she is saying And for many from either side of the culture wars there will be challenges But she does so to plead for what she calls for `Respectful Conversation'WORKING ACROSS THE DIVIDESAs evidence that she engages in such conversations it is clear throughout the book that she has many friends and colleagues who take a range of sometimes very different views on sexuality A conversation with a fellow anthropologist who just happens to be lesbian about the sexuality culture wars led them observing the very aggressive and polemical rhetoric employed by both sides So they decided to do some proper research on it and published a joint paperOur conclusion was that despite the deep differences between gay and lesbian activists and conservative Christians they might agree that violence is wrong and change their approach in the light of the abundant evidence that violent speech promotes physical violence p71Amen to that It helps no one and simply entrenches people and crushes those caught in the crossfire And one group who hardly ever get heard are those like Vaughan who seek to take a traditional view while battling with their own difficult realitiesDESIRES DO NOT AN IDENTITY CREATEBecause heterosexuality and homosexuality are concepts that have only really been around for 100 years or so what were initially medical terms have had all kinds of funny things done to them In fact according to Paris the words were originally used to describe people who pursued sexual pleasure in whatever way without concern for procreation p42 The idea that doctors would even feel the need to label such behaviour with a specific medical term seems utterly laughable and pointless todayThe major problem for Christians with heterosexuality and sexual identity in general is that it is a social construct that provides a faulty pattern for understanding what it means to be human linking desire to identity in a way that violates biblical themes No pattern is perfect but this one isn't even close And `Christianizing' sexual identity whether by affirming or negating the morality of various sexual identities doesn't help because it doesn't address the faulty connections that sexual identity categories make between human desire and identityHeterosexuality implies that what you want sexually speaking is who you are A pervasive biblical theme however is that human desire is fickle a mystery even to our selves Eugene Peterson's paraphrase of Jeremiah 179 10 is helpful `The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful a puzzle that no one can figure out But I God search the heart and examine the mind I get to the heart of the human I get to to the root of things I treat them as they really are not as they pretend to be' The Message We are known by God truly than we will ever know ourselves And even when living righteously we like Paul find ourselves wanting things we don't want to want and doing things we don't want to do Desire is not a trustworthy indicator of human identity p43So she has a nice line to help clear away the debris God created sexuality People created sexual identity p75But if desire is not a trustworthy indicator then what is? Well in a Christian framework it must be the gospel of grace that in Christ we can never be truly loved than we are by him because we can never be loved less than we are by him So Paris proposes a new identity label lover and belovedWhen desire is seen as the sun around which identity orbits both become rigid and unassailable; to uestion desire is to uestion a person's selfhood and worth However when desire is seen as a shifting planet that moves around the stable sun of belovedness one's desire as a child of God can remain in place regardless of how desire changes or doesn't change And when desire is respected as a site of conflict and a venue for grace it remains responsive to discernment and care though this may or may not mean that desire will respond to attempts to change it as Paul lamented so poignantly in Romans 7 p98The result is that whenever people ask Paris what her sexuality is she invariably replies that she is `unlabelled' despite being a married mother of 3 children And she is not trying to be pedantic it's simply a helpful way for redirecting our assumptions And of course this has relevance far beyond the current culture wars For it means that my identity is not derived from my social status physical appearance wealth intelligence power respectability or anything else NONE of these things does any justice at all to what it means to be truly humanCREATING REAL COMMUNITIESThe biggest challenge of this uncoupling of identity from sexuality is that churches have much to repent of and change not least in how it helps nurtures and loves single people regardless of the reasons for their singlenessAny discussion must start here for there is SO much about the church of which I am deeply ashamed when it comes to this issue In this light one of the most helpfully challenging sections of the book is Paris' articulation of different understandings of holiness and sanctification p84ff In particular various paradoxical definitions are all biblically compatible that sanctification is both a crisis and a lifelong process; that the process is one of both great blessing and sometimes great suffering; that becoming Christlike involves both incarnation and separation; that it happens individually but also corporately I would go so far as to say that very many of the conflicts and ethical horror stories in church life perhaps derive from a failure to battle with both ends of the paradoxBut of crucial importance is that our identities in Christ redefine EVERYTHINGIn the post sexual identity church there's no moral high ground for heterosexuals and no closet for homosexuals There's just people each of whom is lover and loved p92If it doesn't we are all in danger especially as the culture wars heat upIn place of discipleship the adversarial approach offers morality and the inclusive approach offers affirmation In both approaches we can cling to these outward forms of godliness but deny the real power of holiness p106Then for people who are single but committed to celibacy we need to find ways of nurturing all the wonders of human relationships at their fullest within the Christian community intimacy comfort practical support encouragement and sharpening up We desperately need to recover the practice of deep and committed friendship especially between men We need to encourage the Davids and Jonathans of our time Of course the very notion of celibacy is regarded as absolutely ridiculous and even harmful But as Paris points outSexual holiness is strange and celibacy all the because they aren't reinforced by dominant plausibility structuresWhether married single and hoping to be married single and satisfied living with some degree of same sex desire or some combination of these the practice of holiness makes strangers and aliens of us all Long term celibacy becomes plausible when there are widely held values positive languages meaningful social roles and real social support for celibates For example a church could review the language used to describe its groups and programs and make sure they make room for celibates p129 130There is MUCH to this book than I've been able to cover here it will be a book I will revisit for there were a few things I need to think through a bit carefully But as a helpful aid to dialogue and above all respect I sincerely hope that it will be read by many whether its central premises are accepted or notFor my profound longing is that the very idea of hatred of others who are different from us doesn't even come into it But it can't if our identity is grounded grace from outside of ourselves
