Maybe the homosexuals should move away from the Boy Scouts.

Why? Because it's a sin? Maybe the Boy Scouts should ban all those who sin. Wait. Then there would be no members...

The media should put some heat on the KKK and neo-nazi organizations. I believe they have no-gay membership policies as well.

Who in the*****gives you people the right to decide what is and what is not a sin. You take your bible and change up the words so it fits your life style the best. Question... have you had sex before you were married?? SINNER! have you gotten back at someone for them doing something bad to you? SINNER! Heres a good one... Have to ever swore? SINNER! So go kiss it because you are all sinners just as much as the next! Gay or not all people have the same rights and you are no differant!

This notion that a private institution can't set it's own policy and that "all people have the same rights" is asinine. It doesn't have anything to do with rights, if you don't like the policy of a specific institution then don't participate. Pretty simple concept. The Boy Scouts of America doesn't owe anything to anyone.

That being said, the Boy Scouts have been a sham since they started giving awards for participation. So who really cares.

For instance, a merit badge for being able to start a fire.

Back in the day, it would go to the person(s) who could do it. Wearing the badge shows that you can be counted on for that particular task. Now, if little Joey can't light a fire he gets the badge anyways. It's actually against policy to not give him one. He TRIED, so that's good enough. It lacks any shred of common sense and completely destroys their motto of "Be Prepared".

What happens when little Joey is out on a camping trip, something bad happens and he has to make a fire? I guess maybe he could use his badge as fuel...

With the track record of abuse and sexual molestation statistics taking place inside of Boy Scouts right now, go ahead, open the door wider. As if every single Gay in America is down to earth and honest person right?

I have one question for any of you GAY right liberals. It is not as simple as it sounds.

What do you do with those that claim they are men trapped in a woman's body or a women trapped in a man's body? Better yet, which one of you are willing to make the judgement call on this? Frankly, I think this GAY right crap is getting out of hand.

Just ask that little girl in Dallas Texas that was sexually molested by male dressed as a woman and claiming he was a woman trapped in a male's body and he had every right to be in that women's bathroom in the beginning. Explain that to your children.

"This notion that a private institution can't set it's own policy and that " all people have the same rights" is asinine." Using that logic Grant, any private institution who wanted to deny access based on race, religion, gender, etc would be within thier rights and not practicing discrimination.

Oh heck, let's just solve this problem all together shall we? Let just do away with BOY and GIRL Scouts and combine them. Let boys be with the girls and the girls be with the boys, mixed them together, that way the Gays will fit right in and nobody will know the difference right? So they mingle and have sex whenever they want, no big deal, right?

I mean really if some boy prefers sleeping with boys that shouldn't be any problem? Right?

Heck let's take this one step further. Let's take down the gender signs on bathrooms. This is the NEW America right? Right? That way all GAYS are HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY, right?

OH I just live for the next group that comes out with their demand for their rights don't you. Brothers and sisters demanding their rights should okay? right? Or maybe the women that wants 50 6 husbands? Don't want violate her rights? Heck let just give teachers access to date their students and have sex with any of their students. Age should not matter, right?

Why would we ever want to violate somebody's rights to sexual preference? Right? Keep opening that door wider.

"Who in the*****gives you people the right to decide what is and what is not a sin."

What do you mean by "you people"?

At the time of this post, the only commentor making the connection between being gay and sin is a known flaming liberal. Maybe you are not religious and that's fine, but It does appear you have some serious animosity toward people who are different from you. I'm far from being a religious zealot and I don't have anything against gays. Its their life and none of my business so I don't care what they do, but I do get aggravated with hateful attacks on people's religious beliefs, especially from people who claim to be tolerant and understanding.

The known hardline conservatives on here have only commented in regard to the political and social aspects of the issue. They have not made any religious comments, and for those who haven't figured it out yet, my previous comment that suggested the KKK and neo-nazis be made to accept gays was intended to point out that you can't force people to get along. They have to work that out for themselves and, if they don't, then that is just the way it will have to be.

Frankly, I'm tired of the term 'gay'. Afreaid to call it what it is? Homosexuality and lesbianism.

Not so hard.

I think the real issue is: Does a private organization put rules in place to govern their organization. Today we try to put everything as public and the mind set is everyone should be able to do what they want and everyone else should just roll over and let them do it because they have their rights. What about the people's rights in these clubs organ

Look also at the track record of Catholic priests molesting children. Maybe we should keep boys out of churches. Cause, how do you explain THAT to your kid?

Point. Bad things happen anywhere. To assume just because someone is homosexual they are going to molest everyone of the same sex, is ridiculous logic. It's not even logic. It's paranoia. And it is discrimination.

How about the rights of the parents of the children that would be attending the boy scouts. Do they not have the right to expect a certain standard from the organizations they allow their children to participate in. Till now the scouts have held a very high standard, it was a place to send your boy that would reinforce and build upon the values which you were raised with.
