    I’d just like to point out that Comiskey is now a Roman Catholic:

    What William said, Comiskey isn’t leaning towards Catholicism, he’s converted. I doubt he would be speaking there otherwise, but who knows in these odd times of ex-gay turmoil.

    That is fascinating. I would have guessed that most desert stream affiliated churches would be even more antiCatholic than antigay. How odd.

    It wouldn’t matter if he hadn’t converted to Catholicism. NOTHING brings faiths that hate each other together as brothers and sisters like homophobia! NOTHING but a common hatred of gay people could have brought Orthodox Jews, Orthodox Muslims and Orthodox Christians together in Jerusalem for a lovefest a few years ago but shared homophobia. NOTHING could make Southern Baptists embrace Mormons and Catholics like shared homophobia. I’ve always said that homosexuality has done for the world what Moses, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad, ALL put together couldn’t do, and that’s to bring these factions together in peace and love even if only for the time that they are together to hate on the gays. We should have a special shrine in every Synagogue, Church, Mosque and Temple across the globe. Harvey Milk should be canonized as the ONE and ONLY, TRUE Prince of Peace!

    The event isn’t listed on Mount St. Mary’s calendar. I wonder why they’re not publicizing this?

    It depresses me no end that the Church that could once claim John Boswell as a member has become a bastion of flakes, quacks, and nuts.

    Ok, more of a bastion.

    Kevin:

    The official Catholic Church position on homosexual behavior has not changed much over the years, and Boswell’s theories are disputed even by pro-gay scholars.

    Courage is NOT an x-gay ministry.

    It seeks only for Catholics who wish to remain faithful to surrender to sin & repent of their sin, not their mindset.

    We choose to surrender to God’s love & Mercy.
    I’ve done it for years now.
    So we stumble, we work the 12 Steps of AA around it. God is greater than our lifestyle. He has his own.

    WE LIKE IT.

    I threw Boswell’s book into the woodburner 20 yrs. ago.

    Catholic training informs the conscience. We can’s live like that for long before the sky comes down upon us. Our conscience dictates a different way of living.
