You say that as if there were something wrong with it.  
“Under Pope Francis, the church has abandoned many of its bedrock positions on issues like divorce and homosexuality in favor of a "why not?" attitude. Francis has scolded people for being rich, sided with illegal immigrants, and suggested the church should be a refuge for the poor”–John Moody, Fox News VP

Within the Church's view would it make sense to say they've emphasized that Christ's core teachings are "more important" than homosexuality?

I don't think that would be the case, exactly. One of Christ's core teachings was that not one "jot or tittle" of the Law would pass away before the world's end.

Rather - and see above my response to browngirl - I think the Church is recognizing that sexual sin* is not "worse" than other sin, and, since we're all sinners, we shouldn't judge others.

* Note: I am not saying that non-heterosexuality is a sin. I'm admitting, however, that the Catholic Church's position remains that sex outside of a two-person hetero marriage is a sin.
