1.‐ How do the views of sexuality in Judaism and Islam differ? How are they similar? Does the
fact that they each view God as male affect the way that sexuality is accepted or not? How is
homosexuality seen in each religion? Why?
2.‐ According to Carol Christ, what are the three implications of a Goddess centered symbol for
women today? Please explain the difference between this view of a Goddess centric religion
versus a view of A) a male centric religion, and b) a religion that has both male and female
deities. Why is it that in the Hindu religion, even though there are hundreds of Goddesses,
women are still subjugated?
