A forthcoming book by investigative journalist Randy Engel is likely to be one of the most controversial books of its kind in quite some time.

"The Rite of Sodomy – Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church," due out in July 2006, is 1318 pages in length, and, according to the Web site for the book, “tracks the rise of homosexuality in the Catholic hierarchy, diocesan priesthood and religious life in the United States over a span of 100 years and three generations of prelates. It examines all facets of this intergenerational phenomenon on the life of the Church – yesterday, today and tomorrow. The text is broken down into five mini-book sections, each examining a different aspect of homosexuality in the Roman Catholic Church.

“Section I looks at pederasty, homosexuality in its most pervasive and universal form, from Antiquity to the Middle Ages, to the Renaissance, to the rise of the Modern State in the mid-to-late 1800s. Section II exams the complex nature and causes of male homosexuality, describes homosexual acts and behaviors, and provides an in-depth look at the secular Homosexual Collective and the inordinate power it exerts over the individual homosexual. Sections III and IV document the growth of the vice within the American Church (AmChurch) with special attention to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops/U.S. Catholic Conference and Catholic dioceses headed by homosexual cardinals and bishops.

“There is biographical data on more than 30 homosexual prelates and detailed case studies on homosexuality and pederasty in six major religious orders. A carefully researched report on New Ways Ministry, one of the most influential pro-homosexual auxiliary organizations in AmChurch, illustrates the total ineptitude of the Holy See in confronting morally subversive agencies within its own ranks. Section V brings all elements of the controversy over homosexuality in the Catholic Church under one roof – the dome of St. Peter’s. An examination of the role played by Pope Paul VI in connection with the rise of a 'gay' clergy in the Universal Church bring this blockbuster work to its startling conclusion.

“The Rite of Sodomy contains 4,523 endnotes, a bibliography of over 350 books, and a full index.”

The official website for the book is www.riteofsodomy.com.

    The attempt to explain the natural world in terms of moral hierarchy
    is bankrupt. Would you look for the causes of heterosexuality?

    This whole approach to goodness is puerile. Despite tidal waves of ink
    human behavior stands like a rock beyond the reach of your approval
    or disapproval.

    Perhaps this is what was originally meant by divine creation?
