Plato v. Paul
, Jennings explores the notion that the origin of Western homophobia lies not in the biblical traditions of Judaism and Christianity but instead has its source in the Greek and Hellenistic sources (mainly Plato) often assumed to have been accepting of same-sex eroticism. Jennings is aware that this concept goes against the grain of common opinion, and therefore provides ample clarification from official statements of the Vatican and opinions of the United States Supreme Court; texts from Plato and other Hellenistic perspectives; and the writings of Paul.
Revolutionary text that argues and asserts that Plato---not Paul---is the basis of Western homophobia.
