I didn't hear anything that was a departure from the standard Vatican party line for the last 40 years on the issue. It was the same old thing in a slightly more attractive package.
If you really do refuse to pass judgment on gay folk, then how about dropping the Catholic Church's global opposition to any civil rights legislation protecting gays and lesbians? Have the American Catholic Bishops' Conference publicly back ENDA and all other legislation that puts gays and lesbians under civil rights protections against discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodation. Put the weight of the Catholic Church behind global efforts to prevent hate crimes, to end oppression of gays and lesbians in Africa, Russia, Iran, and other countries, and to decriminalize same sexuality around the world.
Talk is cheap.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York led the opposition to including gays and lesbians in New York City's Human Rights laws for 16 years. Thomas Cuite was the Archdiocese's point man on the City Council to stop gay rights legislation first drafted in 1970 from coming to the floor for a vote. He stacked the committees he chaired with opponents of the bill. The bill finally passed in 1986 a year after Cuite's retirement.
