I think he distinguishes between those with a gay orientation who nevertheless are able to practice self-control and those who don’t practice self-control.
He believes (I think), that gay or straight, priests are all subject to sexual temptations ( same or opposite sex). It depends on how one controls the temptation.
Are you making excuses for him? Lol
Homosexuality is a sin and an abomination to The Lord. He is who we will all answer to, not a pope.
Sexual Temptation is covered under the Seven Deadly Sins and you can’t procreate man to man.
