This is nothing new. It’s love the sinner but hate sin. How about this.
“Men and women of adultry tendencies must be welcomed with respect and sensitivity.
“Men and women with tendencies to steal must be welcomed with respect and sensitivity”.
I could go on. Nothing is a sin until you act on it.
But what does aggravate me is the part about “must be welcomed”. Why say this. Like any other sinner, homosexuals have always been welcomed in the Church, but not practicing the sin of homosexuality.
Since none of these are singled out for special recognition and "welcome", why doesn't the same standard apply to "gays"? The sanctimonious catering to that particular group is absurd, particularly in light of the tremendous damage "gay" molesters have inflicted on the Church.
