Dr Gaillardetz says the Church's leaders fear that essential elements of Catholic identity are being challenged.

That's true. But it's equally true for other people that foolishly tied their identities to bigotry, and it is your bigotry that's being singled out and attacked.

Our respect for Catholic people should in no way lesson our condemnation of their bigotry towards gays, or women. Nor should it interfere with our efforts to relieve them of their hatred for everything non-Catholic.

the Church teaches that the respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behaviour or to legal recognition of homosexual unions.
