'...over time I learned that much of the conservative church believes the "Billy Crystal rule" taught by Burns. In a complete contradiction of our fight to uphold a biblical standard of sexuality, Hollywood became our teacher on relationships and gender after all. The church sent messages that a woman's attractiveness serves the purpose of landinbg a husband, then becomes a threat to all other men. My sexuality became a barrier to friendship. This has been quite a challnegs in my adult years.'
