Evangelicalism's sexual double standard

From "Before the Deluge" by Andy Crouch writing at Christianity Today Magazine:
Our churches often maintain a devilish double standard that expects heroic levels of purity from those with homosexual desires, while aggressively enforcing a "don't ask, don't tell" policy for the rest of us. The hypocrisy—if not homophobia—of such attempts at sexual sin management is only confirmed by the divorce rate among evangelicals, which is slightly higher than that of the general population.
So what's the solution? Do we aim for the lowest common denominator or the highest?
