Berzerklean Logic

From the article on AOL:

Councilwoman Linda Maio said the council opposes recruitment, not the military. "It's behavior that we oppose, not the people," she said.

That sounds awfully familiar. Kind of like "Hate the sin; love the sinner."

If that kind of rhetoric isn't acceptable from the Catholic Church when discussing homosexuality or extramarital sex, why does Ms. Maio think the exact same rhetoric would be acceptable as an apology for the Berkeley City Council's action against the U.S. Marine Corps?

Either the argument is valid or it's not.
