In browsing Australian sites this morning, I ran across this video feature of Fr James Alison speaking of the nature of homosexuality and Catholicism. It’s only 9.6 minutes, but as a thought-provoking bit for your Monday, very much worth it.
Fr Alison’s question, what is the purpose of gay people, makes for fascinating discussion as he suggests. I’m not sure there are always answers to queries of that sort.
My own take is that human beings have transcended evolution in that we are now masters of our environment, not slaves to it. Our physical nature will change less in the millennia and eons ahead. We will more readily make the world change to suit ourselves.
As for homosexuality, it is a biological reality. It transcends human morality or choice. Alison argues it keeps popping up (though not in those words exactly) and no one has been successful in stamping it out. He does suggest that once gay people are able to live as they are made, they will find fulfillment and their neighbors will benefit from that contribution to human society.
