YOU ARE INVITED TO THE LAUNCH OF JULIAN PUNCH’S BOOK
“GAY WITH GOD – The Life and Times of a Turbulent Priest” – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7TH
AT HOTEL SOHO, 124 DAVEY STREET, HOBART 6 to 7PM. Drinks and nibbles.
Provocative, timely and intensely personal.
Julian Punch entered the Priesthood as a gay man. He received his training in the
same seminary with George Pell. He left the priesthood after much inner conflict to
face bitter resistance to his efforts to bring a better life to the gay community.
He has been arrested on trumped up charges, vilified, had his house burnt down,
received many awards for his human rights efforts in Timor-Leste and is the recipient
of an Order of Australia.
He rejected the church because he believes it is corrupt, out of step with modern
thinking and intolerant in the extreme. He fought off the reactionary National Civic
Council and continuous political and religious interventions into his good works.
Hotel Soho is open for dinner with fabulous meals beginning at just $10.
