A student group at the University of Wisconsin Madison called Badger Catholic recently received backlash for hosting an event focused on the intersection of homosexuality and faith.
The April 13 event, “Homosexuality and Life With Christ,” featured Kim Zember, author of the 2020 memoir Restless Heart: My Struggle with Life & Sexuality, which explains her struggle with her faith and homosexuality.
“Zember, a California girl born and raised Catholic, found that no matter how much she pursued relationships with women, she was never at peace,” according to the Catholic News Agency.
She eventually delved into a spiritual journey that led her to leave homosexuality and found a ministry called “Overcome.”
But the event was condemned as “anti-LGBT” by the student group Sex Out Loud in a statement posted to its Instagram page.
“We are aware that an anti-LGBTQIA+ speaker event is happening on campus this week. This speaker and event are using pro-LGBTQIA+ language to invite queer communities to discuss potentially harmful topics on the basis of faith and religion,” it stated in part.
