"Taking A Chance On God" - The Newly Released Trailer

By Tony Adams

"On April 14 1987 Jesuit superiors arrived at the apartment of Fr John McNeill at 98th Street in NYC. In English and Latin they read the Vatican “Decree of Expulsion”.  McNeill, Jesuit priest of 40 years, was expelled from his religious community because of disobedience to Vatican authorities. He questioned Roman Catholic teaching on homosexuality. This was the final act of an expulsion drama begun a decade prior in 1977."

"Taking A Chance On God" , a documentary film, is John's story, beautifully realized by New York activist, Brendan Fay. I wrote about John in the South Florida Gay News.
