I agree that clerics should not discriminate against anyone -- this is Biblical. But the Bible also gives rules for dealing with someone who is in the congregation and refuses to live as they should. HOWEVER, the cleric still has the responsibility to preach what is taught in the Bible, regardless of how it is received.

Not “discriminate” against anyone? To discriminate against is to treat differently - how about pedophiles? Murderers? and, of course, sodomites? These are all abominations. A clergyman who doesn’t discriminate against them inside and outside the pulpit in both word and deed is unfit for office. I would also add that failing to “discriminate” is not Biblical. Our actual obligation is to use Biblical standards when we do.
Discrimination in favor of, and against, some things and some people is not only necessary and unavoidable, to fail to do so would be grossly immoral.
