Since My Last Confession is a funny, irreverent faith
journey by a gay Catholic pursuing his Archbishop in the style of
Michael Moore’s Roger & Me that answers the
perennial question, “What’s a Nice Gay Catholic Part-time Porn
Writer Doing in a Nasty Church Like This?” Scott Pomfret, a
practicing Catholic in a long-term committed gay relationship
with a hardcore atheist, tries to reconcile his faith with the
Catholic hierarchy’s bitter attacks on gay marriage, gay
adoption, gay seminarians, Capri pants, innate style, and
anything else remotely homosexual. Convinced that a meeting
with the Archbishop would foster homo-Catholic rapprochement and
world peace, Pomfret pursues the prelate from pulpit to Chancery
to state funeral -- and runs into a host of motorcycle lesbians,
gay priests, flaming friars, pious prelates, would-be Opus Dei
monks, a radically atheistic boyfriend, dozens of Irish women
named Mary, and angry orthodox bloggers along the way.
Addressing topics ranging from a firsthand account of a 1970s
SWAT team raid of a gay Mass to “Ten Ways to Recognize a Gay
Catholic” to Harry Potter’s Satanism, Confession is one
man’s personal experience of wrestling with faith, doubt, sex,
love, and priestly undergarments. For more information, go
