  1. The Church of Scientology says it "has no position on sexual orientation." We have questions.

    Recently and repeatedly, the Church of Scientology has said "the Church has no position on sexual orientation," and "[t]he Church is on record as being opposed to discrimination of any sort, including on the basis of sexuality." See also here, here, and here.

    Journalists may want to ask the Church of Scientology the following specific questions, among others:

    1) Does the Church of Scientology perform gay weddings? Is the Church of Scientology willing to perform gay weddings?

    2) Does the Church of Scientology support adoption by gay couples?

    3) If the Church of Scientology supports adoption by heterosexual individuals, does the Church of Scientology also support adoption by gay individuals?

    4) Can a gay person become and remain a member of the Church of Scientology in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    5) Can a gay person become and remain Clear in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    6) Can a gay person become and remain OT 8 in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    7) Can a gay person become and remain a non-Sea Org staff member in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    8) Can a gay person become and remain a Sea Org member in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    9) Can a gay person become and remain a member of the clergy of the Church of Scientology in good standing without being required to be celibate, without being required to eventually become heterosexual, and while continuing to have gay sex subject only to the same ethical requirements applied to heterosexuals?

    10) Does the Church of Scientology perform, endorse, advocate or accept the validity of any form of gay conversion therapy, or any form of therapy or spiritual practice or technology intended, designed or that has the purpose of changing a gay person's sexual orientation from gay to heterosexual?

    "Today, Tena and I live right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Every day is all about our kids, who we are raising Episcopalian, the religion I was baptized. We get up bright and early in the morning to get everybody off to school. I love making the kids lunches and doing their hair."

    Too bad after her mother raising her as a Scientologist she is deciding for her children that they should be Episcopalian. Maybe she lacks a conscience that would help her to make rational choices in how to raise her children. Let them choose religion or not on their own and at whatever age they might want to.
  3. Wrong thread.
  4. I read it in the article you posted a link to in your op above.
  5. As a result of the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology at least partly addressing the issue of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, I decided to revisit my questionnaire. In version 2.0 I revised question number 10 to (perhaps awkwardly) include a double negative. I did this so that the Church of Scientology International (or an Independent Scientology organization, omitting the Sea Org questions) will pass if and only if all of the questions are answered "yes." I believe that overall the questionnaire is less confusing that way, and less likely cause question number 10 to be answered inaccurately.

    Please let me know what you think.
