Joseph unquestioningly accepts what the priests and nuns tell him about the perverse nature of his Catholic birthright: about the evil of his sexuality, about the stain of original sin, and about his own fallen nature. As he matures, he is increasingly tormented by these inculcated beliefs. In Joseph’s adolescence and teenage years, he suffers profoundly because of the fear, loathing, self-hate, and shame that the Church, through its catechetical training, has instilled in him. As the story unfolds, a broader theme emerges—that Catholicism is not alone among the great religions in its damaging and damning effects on its believers.A Sense of Shame: Born in a State of Sin is an irreverent, witty, vicious, and deeply erudite attack on the Roman Catholic Church—on its immoral doctrines, on its sordid history, and on its deranged clergy.
