No, I understand your perspective. My only point is that the comment in the JPII’s statement, taken alone, is logical, indeed even obvious. Place it into context of the Church’s teaching on homosexuality, and a huge problem arises. But the problem was already there - the church’s “disordered” beliefs about homosexuality.
Perhaps, but none of the Ecclesiastic hierarchy – among them Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia – seem to be making that distinction, and as far as I know, the Pope has not chastised or corrected them for their unfounded remarks.
They are the people engaging in the hunting of witches and the scaping of goats.
