Eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven: Women, Sexuality, and the Catholic Church
Uta Ranke-Heinemann (au)
The definitive study on the oppression of women in Western soc. Begins with ancient, pre-Christian taboos & the healthy attitudes of the ancient Jews towards sex. Early Christians chose, not the Jewish perspective, but the pessimistic pagan model of sex. For most of its 20 cent. the Catholic Church has been manipulating & mutilating the sexuality of believers. The Church has denigrated sex, degraded women, & championed a perverse ideal of celibacy. It has glorified Mary’s virginity, implying that all normal conception & childbearing are polluted. It has damned birth control & masturbation, & has even banned the use of condoms by AIDS patients. Challenges readers to reexamine the role of religion in shaping the sexual behavior of the Western world.
