What say you?
He’s not condoning it all, and he has already said that he follows the teachings of the Church in everything.
What he is doing is treating it the way it should be, as a sin, and not as some bizarre permanent psychological condition that makes the person a special political class. Many people have a particular sin to which they are “addicted,” ranging from sexual things to drinking too much to stealing - and even to less spectacular things that are bad habits where lesser sins become seriously sinful because of their extent (gossiping, for example). I think what he is saying is that we have to show people the freedom, happiness and peace that comes with being a Christian before they will even consider giving up their sins. And then we work with them, even if they keep falling.
In other words, he’s taking it back to being a moral issue and not a political question.
That doesn’t mean he’s going to sit there and let it be imposed by a secular society on the Church. Cdl Burke came out today and said that Nancy Pelosi should be excommunicated - because she is using her political position to publicly support a gravely sinful act and even impose tolerance of it on the Church. And Burke certainly wouldn’t have done this without consulting with the Pope.
