Kindred spirits ...

... Anecdotal Evidence: `Beauty Ever Ancient, Ever New'. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Despite the obvious differences, Rodriguez reminds me of Murphy. Both men are gay. Both are seriously Roman Catholic. Both revere tradition. Both might be called cultural outsiders who don’t cultivate “Outsider” status, who reject the poseur trappings of culturally sanctioned bohemia. Both have refused the claims of “identity politics” and write as individuals.
