THE CO-CREATOR of Glee has praised the “enduring beauty” of Catholicism in an awards acceptance speech.
Ian Brennan, whose father is a former Paulist priest, said he felt “deeply defensive” about the Church and stopped dating a girl after she made a disparag ing remark about the Catholic faith.
He admitted he was not an orthodox Catholic but said he believed “honest, deep scepticism is as holy as religious devotion” and that pondering the nature of God’s existence was itself “a form of prayer”.
Mr Brennan, 32, from Illinois, was speaking at an annual Catholics in Media event in the US. His show Glee is a musical drama about a high school choir, or “glee” club. It was nominated for 17 Emmy awards.
