Transcript 26 MONTROSE VOICE/FEBRUARY 27, 1987 Methodist Debate Attending Gay Function NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI)—A United Methodist Church bishop said sending an official observer to a gay ministries meeting in Chicago next month would risk the appearance of contradicting church legislation. The church's Board of Discipleship voted 37-36 earlier this month against sending a representative to the convention, but the losers in the vote took up a collection to pay the expenses of an unofficial observer. Discipleship Board Chairman George Bashore, United Methodist bishop from Massachusetts, cast the deciding vote taken last Friday. "You risk taking an action that can be construed to be in conflict with General Conference," Bashore said Monday. The General Conference, the top governing body of the denomination, affirmed in 1984 that homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching. The General Conference meets again next year. "The debate on this really should take place in General Conference," Bashore said. "That's the democratic arena where people can debate and change the rules. But once we vote a certain way, we shouldn't be knocking it for the next four years," he said. However, Kelly Laster, a member of the board from Irvine, Calif, and a supporter for sending an observer, took issue Monday. "I worry about the message we send by not supporting this invitation—the message that we're not interested in dialogue with gays and lesbians." Laster is also a supporter of Reconciling Congregations, a group of 22 United Methodist churches that have opened their doors and offered ministries to homosexuals since 1984. Laster asked other members of the board Monday to contribute funds to pay the expenses for an unofficial observer. Twenty members contributed $200 and board member Nancy Starnes of Dallas was asked to attend. "I'm willing to go and collect information, out of ignorance as much as any thing." she said. "I'm going only forthe personal learning experience. I am not representing any group on this board or any organization." The Board of Discipleship, whose headquarters are located in Nashville, provides literature and training to churches in Christian education, stewardship, evangelism, worship and other areas. Condom Delivery Postponed By Mede Nix LUBBOCK, Texas (UPI)—Action on a permit for a Texas Tech University student who runs a condom delivery service from his mobile home was delayed recently by the city's zoning board until the student obtains permission to operate from the mobile home park's owner. Paul Gloyna, 21, appeared before the Zoning Board of Adjustment to ask for a permit for "The Protection Connection" to operate as a customary home occupation. However, since the lease Gloyna signed with the Commander Place Mobile Home Park prohibits sales or businesses, board members said they would like to hear from the owner and neighbors of Gloyna at next month's meeting before they grant a permit. "I just haven't been able to get in touch with the owners of the park, who live out of town," Gloyna said. "I'll be back next month. I'm going to try to get permission. None of my neighbors have objected." Other than having the owner's permission, zoning board members had few objections to the business. "People aren't forced to use this service," said board member Sally Kersey. "I can't see how it is going to make much money, but if he wants to continue, he should be able to." The Protection Connection began its controversial operation last month by distributing flyers in a parking lotsouth of Lubbock Monterey High School. Gloyna said that at the time he started the business, he was unaware of a rarely enforced city ordinance against placing flyers on vehicles. The student said he paid a $40 fine after a police warrant officer called to tell him there was a warrant out for his arrest for illegally distributing flyers. Although Gloyna distributed flyers near a high school, he said his target market is Texas Tech students. However, he sees his business as a help in controlling the high rate of teenage pregnancies. Lubbock has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the state, Gloyna said. "Sexually transmitted disease is also rampant, so we want to help do some thing about this," he said. "It also helps prevent AIDS." For $5, The Protection Connection will deliver five condoms. For $6, they will deliver three contraceptive sponges, well above the retail prices of the items. "Alotofkidswon'tgooutand buy these things for themselves. We do it for them," Gloyna said. "Anybody can go into the drugstore and buy these things, but a lot of people won't." Gloyna said he won't make much money, especially after he pays the $125 permit fee if the zoning board approves next month. "It'll be quite sometime before I turn a profit and I don't anticipate the business to grow larger than I can handle on a night or a weekend. I see it as a comfortable business operated by a Texas Tech student for a steady flow of income." In a distant time and a far-off world... Eleven top science fiction writers give their visions of what it could someday mean to be gay or lesbian, in this widely-acclaimed new anthology. Contributors include Samuel R.
