'Membership in our community is not extended only to the pre-perfected. We are not an exclusive country club that allows in only the brightest and the best. The Church is a hospital for sinners; when you go there you should expect to encounter the broken, the defeated, the unholy, the lost. If you encounter only the stern and the upright, with their tight lips and their virtues dangling like medals from their chests, you've gone to the wrong place.'
Melinda Selmys, Sexual Authenticity, p.174.
