'We do continue to hold to an orthodox view of human sexuality and Christian marriage, as you can read in our Theology of Human Sexuality Document.'"

This reminds me of Ramsey MacDonald, Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain's approach to Hitler in the 1930's. Appeasement. Groveling. Gentlemanly disagreement. Velvet gloves. Politeness. Timidity. Weakness. Cowardice. Self-delusion. Ultimately foolish.
