Rev Dr Robert E. Shore-Goss, Bob Shore-Goss, was brought up in a devout Roman Catholic family and felt called to the priesthood, being ordained as a Jesuit in 1976.

He left the Jesuits in 1978 going on to receive a Th.D. in Comparative Religion from Harvard University.

Goss taught in the Religious Studies Department of Webster University (1994-2004), and served as chair of the Department. His denial of tenure by the University was controversial with allegations by Goss that this was due to his outspoken views on sexuality. Webster Pride, the student organization for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered rights, did not take an official stance. Webster Pride's president was quoted in the student newspaper as not opposed to the decision "because she doesn't believe the decision had anything to do with homophobia."

He has been involved in gay organizations such as ACT UP, Queer Nation, and the gay Roman Catholic group DignityUSA.

Goss has served as co-chair of the Gay Men's Issues in Religion Group of the American Academy of Religion.

He serves on the National Advisory Board of the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry of the Pacific School of Religion.

He married for the second time in 2009.

His published works include:
  • Jesus ACTED UP: A Gay and Lesbian Manifesto 1993
  • Queering Christ: Beyond Jesus ACTED UP 2002
Goss is currently co-editing a commentary on all the books of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures dealing with gay and transsexual issues. He is also currently an adjunct faculty member at California State University, Northridge where he teaches comparative religions.
