Quote for the Day: "Tone Is Always Irrelevant When You’re Telling Someone That You Are Not Capable of Welcoming People Like Them"

Fred Clark, on the question posed at the beginning of this week by the synod on the family's relatio document, "Are we capable of welcoming these people?":

Tone is always irrelevant when you’re telling someone that you are not capable of welcoming people like them. It’s never possible to exclude people nicely. It’s the act that wounds, not the words that dress it up.
