I admire all little boys and their parents that give so much of their time into scouting. BUT, someone has to step in and set firm rules or bylaws that must be followed on sexual preferences in an organization, if not gays and lesbians will try to take over our society like the majority of black people have tried and failed since the MLK days. Then, they kinda simmered down and along come Obama and he has gotten his people stirred up again. Speaking of Obama, that guy has age 10+ years since January.

It is the right of FBC to maintain their standards. If you do not like it, go to Ice Capades or a bath house and relax.

The homosexuals are already taking over. Good for you, FBC for taking a stand for morality.

First of all, these are 6-11 year old boys. They should not be talking about sex in scouts and they should not even be thinking about sex at that age. Secondly, who in the world follows rules set by an organization about what the prefer sexually? I mean, if there was a rule set that you could only be sexually attracted to red heads, would you follow that because its the rule? Seriously??

If the organization permits poofters in its ranks it is not in line with the moral standards of the church. Period. How in the hell do you know, in today's world, when children mature at earlier ages and some are very precocious, what could happen and be permitted? Some of these kids are raised by real sodomites and dykes. Besides, it is the PRINCIPLE. The First Baptist Church has principles it will not jettison. I know it is hard to understand. You do not have to believe or live them. So let the Cub Scouts meet at some venue where fruitcakes and peter puffers are tolerated. NOT AT FBC Bonham.

This decision reflects fear. What we Christians need to remember is we ALL fall short of the glory of God. Think being gay is a sin? Ok. But so is lying, cheating, cursing, premarital sex, being envious of others, committing adultery, and so on....... If we kicked all sinners out of church, the church would be empty. If someone isn't living right, the best place for them is church, right? Now, voting to remove the boy scouts doesn't show good morals. It shows that you are not tolerant of others and unwilling to share the word with those who need it. Keep in mind, Jesus hung out with the outcasts. Our approach should be the same......

I'd also like to point out that this troop was made up by children who don't even understand sexuality for the most part. Point not taken.

Hey, that is fine. You can go to the Methodist Church or The Episcopalian Church. You can hang out with the Unitarians or the Jimmie Carter Baptists. The FBC of Bonham will stand on its principles. Is that hard to understand? FBC of Bonham are not afraid of condemnation from libtards and social gospel touchy feely folks. They have their standards and it does not include sanction of sodomites. PERIOD. Point does not have to be taken. In short, there are people who do not care for your brand of gospel. As the old folks said, SCRATCH IT AND GET GLAD.

You totally missed the point! Read it again, you'll get it! Times are changing, kids are changing, beliefs are changing, but we can certainly try take a stand on it.

Oh I did read your original post several times. I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic or serious, which is why I asked. Guess you really are judgmental and highly prejudiced. Wow.

I for one am proud to see a church with a backbone that does not cave to the pressure of today's gay agenda. Let them meet up at the Presbyterian. They're already accepting this abomination that is spreading like wildfire. As far as being judgmental, the homos are as guilty as they come. ...love being called a hatemonger for believing the BIBLE and not todays twisted garbage being pushed down our throats.

I am an agnostic, a freethinker if you will. I once thought fundamentalist Christians were off base and intrusive. I felt beaten down by years of life in the bible belt. Now, I feel beat down by the endless political correctness of the most insidious kind. I am tired of being told what to do, how to think, and what to say.

If one wants to "love" their own sex, fine. However, quit hectoring a people who have their own thoughts about sexuality. If Southern Baptists do not want to sponsor or host an organization they disagree with, let it be. How tolerant are you limp wristed political bible thumpers? I am tired of having the homosexual lifestyle shoved down my worldview.

I lived in Bonham for over a year. I did not once have anyone from FBC tell me what to think. Let them conduct their affairs the way they see fit.
