I think the point of this caricature, Elegance, is that any attempt to repeat what the Scripture says about the sinfulness of homosexuality is "unloving." We are supposed to act as though there is nothing wrong with it ("because that's what Jesus would do") and then they will come to the Lord and someday, somewhere down the road they somehow discover (without us telling them) that homosexuality is a sin; and, the theory goes, they will stop committing the acts which Holy Scripture calls abominable. It's a plan. It's not the kind of plan we see followed by the prophets, apostles, or our Lord Jesus, but it is a plan. I'm not so sure it actually works, but it is a plan. The one positive thing we can say about this plan is that it frees one from the discomfort of offending people with the truth and suffering the backlash that accompanies such honesty.
