Aims to illustrate that prejudice differs from presuppositions when interpreting the Bible or reflecting theologically on contemporary issues such as homosexuality. Argues that prejudice leads to homophobia which is theologically untenable. Investigates the labels "homosexual", "gay" and "queer" while searching for authentic identity of sexual minorities. Reflects on the effect of underlying social identity theories on homophobia. Addresses nominalism focussing on "sameness", essentialism focussing on "difference", and primordialism emphasising social identity formation and constructionism..
