I see this a little differently. I see the message here as intertwined with the Catholic doctrine of suffering. (Which has a HUGE class bias, but that's another discussion!!). So, I think the point here is that the homosexual, as created by God, is to be admired more for his/her special burden of suffering. This is not humanism, it might be humanitarian, and it is quasi liberal. At least, the sermon is not rejecting or condeming. Compared to a reactionary doctrine of sin and condemnation and assersation of power (like right wing Opus Dei), this is liberal. This is closer to the compassion and charity branch of theoloty, like the left wing Catholic Workers. But I don't have to like it. As a non-theist, I too find it duplicitous, but not contradictory within the logic of faith in suffering. I think we can all see here a reason why many of us strayed from the faith to a more naturalist and Epicurean philosophy of life. -- Gary
