Chapter 22 » 22.16


We affirm the love of God for all people, whatever their sexual orientation, and our conviction that sexuality is an important part of human beings as created by God, so that to reject people on the grounds of their sexual [orientation] is a denial of God’s creation… We realise that our sexual nature can be a cause of great pain as well as great joy. It is up to each one of us to recognise this pain, … to reach out to others as best we can, and to reflect on our own shortcomings in loving others… We need to overcome our fear of what is strange or different, because we are all vulnerable; we all need love.
