Schools and Legal System Mistreat Gays, Study Says
By TARA PARKER-POPE

Gay, lesbian and bisexual teenagers in the United States are far more
likely to be harshly punished by schools and courts than their
straight peers, even though they are less likely to engage in serious
misdeeds, according to a study published on Monday in the medical
journal Pediatrics.

Also, a friend recently asked, "What it would have been like for a
gay priest in late 19th early 20th C. C. of E. Have you ever come
across any writings on this subject?"

I responded: "The attitudes of society as a whole are very well
documented in numerous places, perhaps best in Louis Crompton's
monumental Homosexuality and Civilization.  There was a fine review
of it in The Yale Review of Books at
http://www.yalereviewofbooks.com/archive/spring04/review08.shtml.htm. 
Crompton was brought up as an Anglican Canadian and found it a bitter
experience.  That does not surface directly in the 632 pages, but it
certainly influences what he sees as he reports aspects of
religion. " 

My friend wrote today saying that he has finished Crompton's book and
said, "The systematic way that the Christian Church has abused,
persecuted and murdered members of the gay community is really sad.It
is little wonder to me that people have been so anti-gay what with
the centuries of mis-information. Thank goodness things are
improving.  Thanks for recommending the book."

Thanks to all in the House of Deputies who are helping with that
improvement.
