Scott Pomfret is a genius. This is a must read for every GLBT Catholic on the face of the planet. In this case it is being GLBT and Catholic. Mr. Pomfret does it with such intellegence and wit. I feel like Mr. Pomfret has channeled my life of 64 years as a gay catholic man. No one understands gay humor like another gay person. I could not put this book down.

Scott Pomfret serves as a lector at St. Anthony Shrine in Boston. He also writes gay porn. His boyfriend is a flaming atheist, and his boyfriend's Protestant grandmother counts Catholicism a sin worse than sodomy. From Pentecost to Pride, from the books of the Bible to the articles of The Advocate, Pomfret's wry, hysterically funny memoir maps with matchless humor the full spectrum of the gay Catholic experience.

It was well written and quite funny. The level of scourging and humiliation from people such as the priest called "Daddy Bear" made me cringe and wonder why adult Catholics put up with that. The belief that people have to suffer humiliation in order to achieve humility is load of crap to me and I don't think God expects us to obey hateful pompous asses, His references to "The Rat" and "B16" were priceless and I have to admit I now see "The Brown Bag" in a different light entirely. I agree that it is a humorous statement of the mismanagement and utter nonsense that has been the flatulent of the Catholic Church toward the GLBT community. Thanking you for making me laugh. Yes, you did make me feel more validated so "mission accomplished" with or without the help of Captain Handsome in the cockpit.

Okay, the topic sounds like a heavy one - a gay man struggling to find his place in an increasingly homophobic Catholic Church - but Pomfret's witty writing had me in stitches. For confidentiality, the author has changed many of the names of parish priests and church members, giving them hysterical names like Father McSlutty and Father Daddy-Bear, and he offers us funny, yet handy cut-out guides along the way with titles like "How to Come Out to Hardcore, Bead-counting Catholics" and "Brokeback Lent."

That said, this memoir also deeply touched my heart and reaffirmed my own faith. Like many, I was surprised to learn that Pomfret - author of gay erotica books like "Hot Sauce" - is a devout Catholic and active lector and lay minister at his Boston parish. Where one might expect this to be an angry, Catholic-bashing book, Pomfret's memoir is actually a very loving one, as he attempts to accept the Church he loves, broken as she may be. "So why do I cling to a broken, dying Church and its broken prelate?" he writes. "Brokeness is an opportunity for the Spirit to enter."

I, too, have struggled to support and defend the Church in which I grew up. Many of us have left, but Pomfret's memoir reaffirms that we are all a part of the Church, and that she is incomplete without us. One gay father of three tells Pomfret, "I feel a political responsibility not to leave and not to be budged by people who don't want me there. It's the Rosa Parks thing. It's my church, too, as much as theirs."

So, while I howled with laughter throughout my reading of this wickedly-funny book, I, more importantly, have come away even more deeply committed to my own faith and in my resolve to help heal the Church from within. I have Pomfret - a kindred spirit - and his touching memoir to thank for that.

This was a purchase made out of curiosity, that has become a gift of love to a whole family. In addition, it is a great read; funny, incite-ful, insightful, it lovingly portrays a Church that doesn't always show the love it was founded on, "Love one another, as I have Loved You." And, I fully believe that the writer will be a historically recognized figure in the future.

Purchased for my own reading, I passed it on to my mother. Mom (83) is a devoted and devout Catholic, who was still having issues with accepting my sister (47), her lesbian daughter. Mom read this book in 2 days! And came away with a new knowledge, not based on hearsay and innuendo, but of reality, truths and feelings.

Now, the interesting thing is we were lucky enough to meet and get this copy signed by the Author. Mr. Pomfret informed us that, despite of all his love of and devoted work for the Church, he has been excommunicated. A sad situation, for both him and the Church as a whole.

Scott Pomfret is a genius. This is a must read for every GLBT Catholic on the face of the planet. Every 100 years or so someone comes around and writes a brilliant and also funny account of lifes circumstances. In this case it is being GLBT and Catholic. Mr. Pomfret does it with such intellegence and wit. I feel like Mr. Pomfret has channeled my life of 64 years as a gay catholic man. No one understands gay humor like another gay person. I could not put this book down. Mr. Pomfret has validated every nuance of my life as a Catholic Gay Man. Dealing with the Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church is made easier once you understand them better. Mr. Pomfret does a brillant job of peeling away the layers of Church B... S... and lays open a human experience that reflects our lives. I am so grateful to Mr. Pomfret. Every Roman Catholic Priest, Bishop, Arch-Bishop, Cardinal and Pope should read this book. Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty and Mr. Pomfret, I am free at last. I am not alone.
