Max says: "The separation of church and state is under serious threat
and is already in the process of being breached.
For this reason, it is important for us to address the historical
roots of fundamentalism, what I call the prehistory of the religious
right. Probing the political underpinnings of religion in "Western
Civilization" has been a large part of my work for three decades: the
history of state Christianity with its gender and race ideologies,
its demonization of cultural Others, whether they are women/witches,
pagans, Jews, Muslims, Africans, Romany or American Indians. The
cultural script of the Crusades still haunts the world, and is
threatening an even greater global conflict.
It has been difficult to bridge the gaps (and sometimes chasms)
between grassroots and scholarly, spiritual and political.
Some of these divisions are starting to break down. But most of academia
still looks down its nose at the idea that egalitarian societies ever
existed, or that goddess veneration does have socio-political
Even Women's Studies scholars are wary of these
heretical and stigmatized areas of study, often preferring Foucault
to Gimbutas. Neolithic history has not been a subject covered in
their syllabi, with exceptions. But I think this can change. It is up
to us to overturn the old doctrinal barriers, along with women inside
academia who are working in that direction. Ancient history is very
relevant! especially given where the world is headed politically and
The easiest way to help is simply to visit and explore

QUEERING CREOLE SPIRITUAL TRADITIONS
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Participation
in African-Inspired Traditions in the Americas
Randy P. Conner, MA...Educator, Author of Blossom of Bone:
Reclaiming the Connections Between Homoeroticism and the Sacred,
Co-author of Encyclopedia of Queer Myth, Symbol, and Spirit
with David Hatfield Sparks, MM, MLIS Writer, Ethnomusicologist,
Musician, Educator, Librarian, Co-author of
the Encyclopedia of Queer Myth, Symbol, and Spirit.
Foreword by Joseph M. Murphy, PhD, Professor of Theology,
Georgetown University; Co-editor of Osun Across the Waters:
A Yoruba Goddess in Africa and the Americas.
"Many of us who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered grew up
in religious bodies that condemned and rejected us.
Thus it is no surprise that many of us left the faith of our parents
to find our own spiritual paths. In the African American spiritual traditions,
many of our people found what they were looking for.
THIS BOOK IS A FASCINATING ROAD MAP TO THIS SPIRITUAL PATH,
told from a decidedly queer perspective."
The Book Nook (TWNinsider/GayToday.com)
"FASCINATING. . . . IMPORTANT AND INSIGHTFUL. . . FRANK AND CLEAR.
This book will be of great value to those interested in African Diaspora religions,
GLBT issues, and the creative co-construction of sexual, spiritual, and personal identity."
Lindsay Hale, PhD, Lecturer in Anthropology, The University of Texas at Austin
"No religious or spiritual tradition has been as exoticized and fictionalized
as the spiritual traditions of the African diaspora. Here, Conner presents these
traditions as they are understood and practiced by real people, wrestling with
real issues of identity and meaning. The book will be A USEFUL RESOURCE for scholars
in many disciplines--religious studies, gender and sexuality studies, anthropology, and history--and
will be of interest to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people
seeking to better understand the spiritual dimension of alternative sexual and gender identities."
David W. Machacek, PhD, Director, Religious Pluralism in Southern California Project,
Department of Religious Studies, University of California - Santa Barbara;
Co-editor of Sexuality and the World's Religions
"This immediately engaging and compelling work is DESTINED TO BECOME A CLASSIC,
not only because of its significant contribution, through meticulous research,
to several intersecting fields, but also because of its carefully and elegantly crafted prose.
Conner has mastered the weaving of first- and third-person narrative voices,
situating his personal story within the complex tapestry of
a great intercontinental adventure of Spirit and Eros."
Sean M. Kelly, PhD, Associate Professor, California Institute of Integral Studies
"AN INVALUABLE RESOURCE. . . . RICHLY INFORMATIVE AND A GENUINE PLEASURE TO READ. . .
Explores the interrelationship of gender complexity, same-sex intimacy, and spiritual practices in
African-diasporic spiritual traditions. . . A respectful, meticulously researched examination
of the diversity and variation within African-diasporic religions, focusing
on issues relating to same-sex intimacy.
I found the entire book to be extremely interesting and useful."
AnaLouise Keating, PhD, Associate Professor of Women's Studies, Texas Woman's University
