One of the more significant concerns that CFS has with the recent booklet, Diverse Gender Identities and Pastoral Care, produced by the Mission & Discipleship Council of the Church of Scotland, is that, in three of the stories related there, specific, positive reference is made to queer theology without any definition or analysis of that term being given, or any alternative assessment being made of it, and, in particular, how it relates to orthodox Christian teaching.

It is clear that if this booklet is to be discussed by Kirk Sessions they will need to be informed as to what queer theology is, where it came from and what its intentions are. Queer theology takes its name from queer theory which was first developed in the early 1990s.

In a brief (2-minute) video clip which can be found on the Forum of Christian Leaders (FOCL) European Leadership Forum website, Dr Peter Saunders, CEO of Christian Medical Fellowship, helps us to understand in lay language what lies at the very heart of queer theory. The website contains other helpful material on this and related issues:

We hope that these resources will help inform Christians of the background to the subject of transgender and bring some helpful clarity to a complex area as we move on to give further responses.
