Holy Father, Please Condemn My Book!

You have perhaps heard that Sister Margaret Farley’s book, Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics, shot up the Amazon bestseller list after being condemned by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on June 2.

I am amused to report that I just checked Just Love on Amazon and discovered that it is temporarily out of stock, though you can order a copy for future shipment. I imagine Farley’s publisher, Continuum, is having copies printed like crazy at this very minute. In the interim, you may be interested in the dozens of quotes from enthusiastic reviews on the Amazon Just Love web page.

Oh please, Holy Father! Oh please, Cardinal Levada! Condemn Tracing the Sign of the Cross!! Sister Farley’s book was published in 2006, so maybe you haven’t gotten to mine yet. But when you do, please condemn it, I beg you!

  1. I knew it, Marian–_Tracing_ contains altogether too little about masturbation. But maybe you could pop up salacious Rodriguez and Haraway angles before Levada gets to it? … 😉 Thanks for all posts–great reading.


  2. I think the what needs to happen here is for your fans worldwise to rise up and review your work on Amazon, citing the many numerous similarities to Just Love. No similarities, you say? Not so, I haven’t read your thesis in quite some time; however, I am confident there are similarities too numerous to detail in the small space allowed for Amazon reviews. Shall I start?
