The Archbishop of Newark said Wednesday that the language used by the Catechism of the Catholic Church to describe homosexual acts is "very unfortunate," adding that he hopes the Catechism will use different language in its discussion of homosexuality.
"The Church, I think, is having its own conversation about what our faith has us do and say with people in relationships that are same-sex. What should be without debate is that we are called to welcome them," Cardinal Joseph Tobin said April 17, during an interview with NBC's Anne Thompson on the "Today Show."
"But how can you welcome people that you call 'intrinsically disordered?'" Thompson asked.
"Well I don't call them 'intrinsically disordered,'" Tobin answered.
