13. RELIGION, PART 1: GAY AND CHRISTIAN? FATHER RICO AVILA BREAKS THE BREAD
In Part 1 of our Religion episode, Father Rico Avila joins The Guncles to talk about faith and homosexuality.
Listener Question: “How do you reconcile one being Christian with one with being gay, if that’s possible.”
Father Rico implores us to be true to ourselves, and shares his outrageous coming out story, in which he fell in love with his Priest… and confessed. Ben and Tommy share their own personal journeys with faith.
Next week, in Part 2, we’ll hear from 5 different queer people of 5 different faiths, about how they reconcile their religious beliefs with their sexuality. We’ll also answer a listener question about faith, closets, and escorts.
