A Response to Hridayananda das Goswami’s “Vaisnava Moral Theology and Homosexuality”

It’s not clear whether Krishna Kirti Prabhu has taken the following statement made by Hridayananda Maharaja into account in writing this essay. This was posted on Dandavats on Saturday, June 10th, 2006 and is Maharaja’s clarification written after his other writings on the subject:

“Statement from H.H. Hrdayananda Das Goswami”

“I do not favor gay marriages. Rather, I accept the principle, as stated in my paper, that religious marriage is between a man and a woman. Heterosexual relations within marriage for the procreation of children is clearly the standard in Krishna consciousness.

My basic point is this: as Vaishnavas, we should feel great compassion for every sincere soul who is struggling to become Krishna conscious in this very difficult age. I have no doubt that there are sincere souls, with real devotion to Krishna, who cannot completely avoid homosexuality. We should encourage these sincere souls to advance in Krishna consciousness and gradually transcend all material desires.”
