"Det är inte gott för människan att vara ensam": Några tankar om tvåsamhetens metaforik i teologisk antropologi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

This article reviews the Christian arguments against same-sex relations and concludes that the only viable argument is that they destabilize patriarchy. The question to be asked is whether two millennia old gender stereotypes from the Mediterranean area should be allowed to play such a prominent role in the debate today.
