Cardinal Schönborn said that he had initially intended to uphold the priest’s decision--but then, he said, “I ask myself in these situations: How did Jesus act? He first saw the human being.” Calling his decision “a decision for human beings,” the cardinal recounted that he invited Stangl and his partner to lunch and understood “why the community had given him the most votes, because he is really impressive.” “This man is at the right place,” the cardinal said of Stangl.From here. Did the cardinal, at any point, happen to tell him "You know, sodomy is sinful. I sure hope you're not engaging in that."? Was that something Christ was known for? Turning a blind eye to open, defiant sin? Yes, cardinal, Christ would see the human. Why, he may even allow the man to serve on the council - AFTER the man repented of his sin. Christ wouldn't have ignored that sin. And He certainly wouldn't have preened about how holy and pure His actions were, as the cardinal so implied.
