This is an attempt to gather in one place all scholarly articles that have been written in ISKCON on the subject of gay marriage and whether or not it should be allowed on the basis of guru, sadhu and shastra. If you think any important article is missing from our list, please leave your suggestion in the comments.
The most widely known article on the subject of gay marriage within ISKCON is Vaisnava Moral Theology and Homosexuality, which can be found up to this day on the official website of its author, Hridayananda Dasa Goswami.
The article is largely favorable to gay marriage, and since its inception, numerous articles refuting his arguments have been made. Some of the most lengthy and well researched rebuttals follow below:
- Moral Thesis Unravelled, by Danavir Goswami
- A Response to Hridayananda das Goswami’s “Vaisnava Moral Theology and Homosexuality”, by Krishna Kirti Das
- Dharma as Consequentialism, by Krishna Kirti Das
