EchoDeus - There is great irony in what you said in that it is so true!

Heckler, you can't even understand the teachings of Christ. You're as special as they come.

Jhwinnyc - I'm so far from "special", you wouldn't believe it. As to how I got a direct line to God's thinking: I spend time with him. It's that simple. :)

What a coincidence, it's almost as if they're synonymous.

It was never about anything but the money. After a hundred years or what ever they have been around they thought this decision would keep the organization going. Ultimately it will end it. Like was said earlier. No one will want to get involved anymore. Every decision will come with possible harassment charges or other hassles.

It shouldn't be a question to be dealt with. That can be accomplished by keeping the ban. Won't be undone. Okay, then let the boys take care of it themselves. Can't. It's against the law to express dislike for homosexual behavior. If only there was a term like "bigot" we could throw at them all the time. If I were a scout master, I woldn't want to know any sexuality. Treat them all the same, and see what happens. Of course, we all know who has more clout in complaining.

I was a scout for a years , and then a scout leader for my sons for a long time. It was a fantastic program, and I learned a great deal from it. I just don't understand how this new policy will work. We spent alot of time camping. Whether the new policy is right or wrong, there will be concerns from parents regarding child safety. It is not a bigoted or homophobic comment, but I can see this is going to happen. Does this mean that a Scoutmaster needs to know the sexuality of every scout in his troop, and has to make decisions based on this? I wouldn't want to deal with the headaches. It will create some difficult situations.

Oh, and Mike, where did you get that foolish idea that it's a "choice"? Please tell me about your "decision" to be heterosexual.

Heckler and Mike: I'm interested in how you got a direct line to God's thinking. You must be VERY special!

EchoDeus, just because someone disagrees with homosexuality does not make them bigoted. It makes them right to say no to a foolish lifestyle choice.

Jhwinnyc, because God doesn't condone such behavior, you need to take the matter up with Him.

Prepare yourselves for:

Comments from bigots who would use millennia-old mistranslated religious texts to deny others their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness today.

Step one accomplished. Step two-be sure straight scouts get charged with harassment. Step three-allow openly gay scoutmasters. Step four-put in place a diversity class. A rainbow badge. Oh, and shorten those khaki shorts.
