If GLAAD or The Human Rights Campaign, or even the Log Cabin Republicans had a chapter that renounced the redfining of marriage on the grounds that children needed a mother & a father...they would be immediatley disavowed and called "self-hating"..
They would be well within their rights to do so, as per any groups right to free association that presupposes the ability to set ones entrance requirments and belef system.

Only homosexuals and the cultural left are so intollerant to define tollerance as meaning "capitulating to everything we believe"

Actual tolerance presupposes that disagreement exists to begin with and we tolerate other groups that dont believe what we believe because this is a pluralistic country.

The BSA is losing corporate & govt sponsorship left and right, and now entire Scout Troops are in open rebellion.

It's the beginning of the end for the BSA.

May they rest in peace........

"Morality is too abstract to have bearing"
Meaning: Morality doesn't apply to homosexuals.

"Scouting is not a religion"
Meaning: Morality should not apply.

Just as the Scouts are within their rights to discriminate. Realizing they are going to lose the battle and close their doors is a self inflicted reward for their efforts.

Scouts in no other nation conduct their business this way. Their worse offense is their condemnation of young men who have worked for years to achieve rank only to be dismissed because they reach puberty and acknowledge their sexual orientation instead of lying to the bigoted haters in the national office. They're a bunch of sick sons of bitches and hopefully will end up in hell for their conduct.

Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Thanks for showing us how worthless your Book of Lies is.

Their are many many Hetro's that should not have children at all.
Maybe EVERYONE should have to go through a screening test to see if they are capable for caring for and giving LOVE and support for a child before they are aloud to have or adopt one.
A straight couple does not instanily make a caring and lovinggreat house- hold. FACTS show that AlMOST all perverts are HETRO

Its clear fro what you write that your totalitarian impulses would allow you to decide what couples can and should have children. Theses same impulses would allow you to take children away from those parents you deem unfit.

I however have fundemental consitutional rights and fundemnetal human rights that show married male/female couples cannot be told to not have children by the state, nor can the state take away the legitimante children of actual parents. It also states the the child himself/herself have the right to know and be known by the parents who bore them.

These rights are completley contrary to the way you see the world, they dont treat children like consumer goods that exist for the enjoyment and validation of adults. Nor do they treat children like consumer disposables like the left does with abortion...

Nor do twe even allow the State to have such a say in the natural family. We consider the family a pre-political social insitition that exists outside the state, and has rights against the state.

This is called libralism as compared to your totalitarianism were you would have state beurocrats subject to the wims of politics deciding who is a good parent, what consstitutes "love" and what consitutes "marriage" & "family"

Gay guys are born with the same sexual orientation your 'mother' was born with; attracted to men

Should we keep your mother away from boys too? Its the same thing
.
Or should we be keeping you away from your mother?
