Is the present crisis in Christian denominations over homosexuality really about sex? If it were, there would be no particular reason why homosexuals should be singled out for attention; there is more than enough sexual disorder among heterosexuals to fuel moral outrage.

It could fight the exploitation of women and children caught in a vast web of international prostitution and pornography.
