“I think that I allowed myself to be caricatured as a person who hates gays and lesbians and transgender people…and I was asked about some of the comments I made during my sermons and so forth and during interviews on Christian media and did I regret any of those. Well, now, I have had five years to think about that answer; to think about those comments. And, yes, I do regret some of those comments. And I regret them not because my convictions have changed. I’m a Bible-believing Christian. I believe about marriage what the Bible says. I believe about sexual morality what the Bible says. However, I also believe what it says about loving people. And I don’t think we ever ought to talk in a way that demeans people; that disrespects them; that makes them feel threatened or feel like you view them as less than human. That was a mistake on my part; I’m not going to make that same mistake again.”
