Orthodoxy on Homosexual Desire

This podcast, downloaded from Ancient Faith Radio, is the best thing I have ever heard or read (so far) on same sex desire.

It opens up new ways of thinking, rooted in Eastern Christian historical theology, that have never occurred to the vast majority of modern westerns, regardless of their particular milieux.
