We should feel pity for these creatures, but recognize that no one who commits such sins can ever be close to God or deserve the regard of their fellow men unless they renounce them.

The Vatican is less condescending than you, happily. It uses the term "homosexual acts," and clearly distinguishes between the act and the orientation.

Apparently you can't bring yourself to make the distinction.

If you read the portion of the post I quoted, viz. "one who commits such sins" you'll see that you've ignored my distinction.

I never said anything about those who are tempted but do not submit.
