I will reﬂect on the reconciliation between “subjective” life and “objective” doctrine experienced by Catholic LGBT couples. Even though their particular experience cannot be considered as universal it can nevertheless constitute a case study for theological reﬂection. I will propose a theological model for the integration of LGBT Catholics into Christian communities. The case of LGBT Catholics also helps us address the theoretical diﬃculties of religious pluralism. Their experience of faith is an example of “lived pluralism”. In the lexicon of religious pluralism, this experience is an intra-system or intra-theistic diversity, but it also touches upon the meta-theological issue of the model of reason that is to be applied to every system. I believe that every possible case of pluralism is worth considering if we want to theorize this concept. This may lead us to consider pluralism as a premise from which to start, articulated at diﬀerent levels.
