Firstly, the language used does not include the word "homosexuality", let alone "homosexual orientation". Instead it deploys spin, speaking of "homosexual lifestyle", thus suggesting that homosexual orientation is not integral to a person and reversible, much like other lifestyle matters, e.g. consuming too much transfat or wearing tinted contact lenses. I'm sure I don't have to repeat that such a view flies in the face of scientific consensus today. This deliberate framing of the issue in such scientifically unsupported terms immediately renders the integrity of the statement-makers -- church leaders donning the cloak of moral guides -- suspect.
