Dorian in Excelsis

I've added Dorian Davis's blog to The Dawn Patrol's well-hidden blogroll.

Dorian is a former MTV host and a conservative New York City writer whom I met last week through Karol Sheinin, the proprietress of Alarming News, to which Dorian sometimes contributes. He identifies himself as Christian (read his beautiful piece on the occasion of Lent). He also identifies himself as gay.

His stance on gay issues isn't going to win him any awards from GLAAD—he's against activist judges' sanctioning same-sex marriage, for example. But the fact remains that he's very open about his homosexuality, while remaining a thoughtful soul who genuinely ponders serious issues of faith and politics. In other words, he's the anti-Sullivan.
