It’s genuinely hard to say both “Die to self” and “live in Christ,” to focus equally strongly on crucifixion and resurrection, submission and liberation. I need to do better at being clear about the sacrifices. I think I’m so focused on making queer, chaste Christian life more viable, fruitful, and loving, that I can sound a bit Pollyannaish. The Gospel is not really sunny-side-up, even though it is a love story which ends with lovers reunited.
Eve Tushnet. I think my published writing on Christian faith and homosexuality suffers from the opposite problem. My book is probably too bleak (as many readers have pointed out to me).
