The Immanent Frame, a blog run by the Social Science Research Council, recently asked a number of leading thinkers, including our own Arnold I. Shure Professor of Law Mary Anne Case, for a response to the ongoing debate over the role of homosexuals in the Anglican Communion. They were asked:
In light of both the ongoing conflict within the Anglican Communion and the Archbishop’s latest missive, we ask: why has homosexuality persisted as a divisive issue for religious traditions and communities, within the Anglican Communion and beyond? And what are the likely effects of the Archbishop’s recent intervention?
