A new essay by Dr. Thomas Plante is now available for you to read. This essay, Homosexual Candidates, the Seminary and the Priesthood, examines how the Roman Catholic Church is addressing the issue of sexual orientation among its clergy. I highly recommend it to you. As with Plante's other work, tis essay offers much to think about.
Also new at www.psywww.com/psyrelig/ are two new announcements. The first is a faculty position in psychology and religion at the Institute for Psychological Sciences. (During the past few months we have had several positions available. Is this a trend?) The second announcement is a conference: Spirituality, Science and Health: What's Going On and Why?, held March 22, 2006 at Santa Clara University.
