What else would you expect from a town where a white supremacist and OPENLY run for elected office? He may not have won, but he got votes. Dropping support for the BS shows the sheriff is cowering in the face of bigots.

Idaho. That's where racist cop Mark Fuhrman moved after the fiasco of the OJ Simpson trials. That's all I need to know about Idaho. Oh, yeah, potatoes, very nice potatoes also.

that city is full of wimps, they all talk big about freedom and crap, but ultimately when faced with any pressure to actually progress they cave to bigotry. Yeah, I lived there for a short time, it's the lamest city I have ever been in, and that's a lot of cities in the US.

God created all.

With the obsession the anti-gay industry has about gay sex and the Bible, and considering the the number of passages about it in the Bible, it strikes me as being very significant none of these passages says "except gays and lesbians".

Colossians 1:16
New International Version (©2011)
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

English Standard Version (©2001)
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

John 1:3
New International Version (©2011)
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

English Standard Version (©2001)
All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

Isaiah 44:24

New International Version (©2011)
"This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself,

English Standard Version (©2001)
Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb:“I am the LORD, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself,

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

God created all. That includes gay scouts. Everyone needs to take a good look at Scouting organizations around the world and look at what "harm" allowing gays and lesbians to join actually caused.

NONE

The "harm" came only from folks like the sheriff.

A straight bigoted homophobic sheriff is the one harming the Scouts now.

Don't blame the gays and lesbians for his actions.

In the old days, we would say the Sheriff's cutting off his nose to spite his face.
Anyone use that anymore?
