Catholics' evolving dialogue on equality

Bishop Joseph Sullivan, the retired auxiliary bishop of Brooklyn, reflects on how "My own understanding of [the gay and lesbian] community has also evolved over the course of four decades of ministry."

He writes:

They are taking the church’s teaching on social justice and applying it to pastoral practice in engaging the LGBT community.
