I've thankfully missed the constant harping, or even the occasional harping (homosexuality is virtually a non-issue among the people at my church, so I've never heard it mentioned by our clergy or 99.9% of the laity)...unless of course you are referring to this thread, which can hardly be considered harping when it is after all the subject of the OP. Anyway, I agree with you on this level, Nektarios, and would not suggest otherwise. My point was, once again, a general principle. There is of course the famous and very laudable story of Gandhi giving up sugar so that he could advise another not to consume it, but a source much closer to us (which I have seen most often as St. Augustine, but I believe predates him in writings of another saint who I can't remember) has put it better as "Right is right even nobody is doing it, and wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it". This takes one's personal sinlessness/sinfulness or that of the other entirely out of the equation, which after all is what I would think you would want to do if you want avoid the moral bankruptcy of the situation you describe. As cliche as it is, it really is a matter of condemning the sin, not the sinner. If others do not always get that distinction (and I've probably fallen short of it in this thread, at least in some people's eyes if not my own), that does not mean that the distinction is not to be respected.
