Following are excerpts from Andrew Comiskey’s blog “Advent 2, Beauty, Burning:” … “Nowhere is Gospel beauty more needful than in the superficial, irrational moralizing of gay activists. Two recent examples: a NYC Catholic High School invited a priest to address the Church’s response to homosexuality, which involves the humane and compassionate goal of chastity—purity expressed in and through the body. The outcry against his visit (and chastity for persons with SSA in particular) was so great that the school rescinded the invitation. Similarly, Liz and Mary, daughters of former Vice-President Dick Cheney, differ on their views of ‘gay marriage.’ Yet Mary, a ‘married’ lesbian activist, slammed her conservative sister with this public statement: ‘Liz, this is not an issue on which we disagree. You are just wrong. And on the wrong side of history.’”

“Activists are no longer intent on their ‘gay’ rights; they now demonize anyone who disagrees with them. Especially targeted are those who believe that sexuality is all about fruitfulness: life and kids, and inspired self-control when one is not married. What used to be good common sense now provokes outrage from both bad religion and politics. The ‘right’ side of history needs beautiful Jesus.”

… “As it was for the Baptist, our joyful Gospel is ‘to some the smell of death, to others the fragrance of death.’ (2Cor 2: 16) In that tension we rejoice with Pope Frances, with John the Baptist and with the beautiful One whom we welcome and await this Advent. In Your increase, Jesus, may we readily decrease!” …
