Religion, religiosity and religious identity are frequently debated and oft referenced foci of much media and public discourse in Canada, with increasing intensity in the face of controversies regarding religious education and religious practice in public. Although controversies reference youth’s vulnerability and the impact of religion in public on youth (in schools or youth clubs for example) rarely do the debates include the voices of youth themselves. This paper will integrate youths’ own reflections on religion and religiosity in a so-called secular society, asking whether it is apathy or misunderstanding that best represents the religious identity of youth in Canada. Data will be presented from the Religion, Gender and Sexuality among Youth survey in Canada to evaluate youth negotiations of their religious identity.

Edited by Heather Shipley

Globalized Religion and Sexual Identity reflects on the ways religion, gender and sexual identity are framed and regulated in multiple spheres across the globe. Controversies in the public arena regarding religion and sexual identity often construct these categories as inherently oppositional or already in conflict. As state policies regarding sexuality and sexual diversity develop, promoting inclusivity and non-discrimination, it is imperative to develop a more nuanced discussion regarding the relationship of religion/ideology to sexual diversity and sexuality. The goal of this volume is to explore religion and sexual identity from a range of countries across the globe, focusing on the theme of religious/ideological voices in state policies, such as same-sex marriage, identification, and education.
