Homosexuality is incompatible with with Christian Science and, for that matter, pure Christianity. There is no hazy or moot middle ground if one is clear about the demands of either.
This does not mean, of course, that homosexual men and women are not welcome in Christian Science churches, but to flaunt it or even be unabashedly open about it should disqualify such persons from elected or appointed offices or even from active membereship.
If a homosexual man or woman is willing to recognize the error of such a lifestyle and is prayerfully attempting overcome it, then he is making an effort to live the life of a Christian Scientist and should be treated as such. But homosexuals today tend to demand acceptance on their terms on any front of their choosing and to be treated as if they embodied some enviable, cutting-edge existence.
What makes this more than an intellectual discussion is that when churches are forced to confront the desire of an unapologetic homosexual to join and serve, it can cause serious and wholly unnecessary rifts in the membership. It is regrettable that many Scientists are not as absolute and clear on this issue as they should be. To stand firm against the acceptance of homosexuality is not unloving, but respectful of God, Christ Jesus, and our Leader, which is a Christian Scientist's duty. Those who would force the issue are the self-righteous, inconsiderate, unloving ones.
This also appears to be yet another instance of Boston's standardless standard-bearing exacerbating an issue.
