Religion & Spirituality
Liam Hooper takes on the "gayest" passage in the Christian Bible, the story of the Roman Centurion and the healing of his personal servant. Does this text condone gay sex? Gay relationships? Slavery?
Liam deepens the significance of the passage by connecting it to the narrative that comes immediately afterwards: Jesus raising a widow's only son from the dead.
See Luke 7:1-17
Peterson joins in the discussion as they look at queer readings of ancient texts, privilege, white supremacy, and the central role relationships have in the texts they are discussing.
For the "Other Text" Peterson reads an excerpt from Mary Renault's novel, The Persian Boy. Alexander the Great and his lover, a eunuch from Persia, travel back to the eunuch's homeland. Together they share an intimate moment.
In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Liam, a trans queerish man, and co-host, cis gay Bible scholar, Peterson Toscano, take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present an other text, a non-Biblical text of note--religious or secular--that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
Bible Bash Podcast is a project of Ministries Beyond Welcome.
Our theme song is Playbill by The Jellyrox. It is available on iTunes, Spotify, or through Rock Candy Recordings
