A cleric has the responsibility to share Jesus Christ with all people. He may alter how he approaches a person it based on that person's sin, but his responsibility is clear.

As I stated earlier, the congregation (not necessarily the cleric) has the responsibility to keep it membership free from "defect" (so to speak), and this is Biblical. By the way, when a congregation excommunicates a person, it is a JUDGMENT, not descrimination.

Almost. Agree on the responsibility to share and on being flexible on how that is done!

The cleric and the congregation both have an obligation, not just the congregation. “Discrimination” is judgment plus action. Excommunication is clearly discrimination.
