The boy scouts are thinking about letting homosexuals be scout leaders. There must be people on here with boys in the boy scouts. Would any of you let a queer take your young son out on a camping trip? Just wondering.

Just because someone is gay doesn't mean they're a child molester.

There are many gay people in the world. It doesn't mean they are child molesters or act like sissys as another on here have said. You wouldn't even know some people are gay unless they told you. Many keep their lives very private because of the stereotypes.
Just because a person is gay doesn't mean they would push what they believe on to a child or anyone else. That's like saying all priest would molest a child because a few may have. So in that respect some could say no Catholics could be a Scout Leader because of the priests. It's just a plain stupid generalization. There are many successful people in the world who are gay. They wouldn't have made it this far if they weren't professional in what they do.

I agree that gay doesnt mean child molester.
With that said I dont want my son to be taught lifes outdoor lessons by a gay man.
I am fortunate enough to have the knowledge, experience, and time to teach my son many of these things myself. Though I cannot be 5 other youngsters and a 2 or 3 scout leaders with a big camp and all that. Its an experience i wouldnt want him to miss out on.
If my son turned out to be gay I would still love him but I dont want him to be.
Therefor I dont want him to know theres even an option.
Not all gay men act feminine you say?
Agreed, what about the ones that do?
I see they dont allow actual scouts that are gay either. I dont think they should be kept out, its benefitial for all.
That would leave the door open for gays in the leadership part though and I guess thats why they dont.
I dont know if its a funding issue or evenif its a private oranization or not.
If its not public it should be. They are a group of like minded individuals and homosexuality strays far from their circle of beliefs in my opinion

I meant to say if the boyscouts are not a private organization then they should be.

A scout leader is an example to young boys. I have seen newspaper and internet ads seeking to recruit people into the gay lifestyle on many occasions. Homosexuality is immorality. Bisexuality is immorality. Adultery is immorality. Fornication is immorality. Promiscuity at any level is immorality. I don't want my son exposed unnecssarily to such examples. As a father, I am obligated and committed to raising a young man with high moral and ethical standards. America has arrived at its current state because many fathers have failed to do that. I will protect my family in whatever way that I can. My son will not participate in Boy Scouts if they allow homosexuals to lead.

I will use this as an example: There are many people who are in the military who are gay but don't tell anyone. They fight for their country and some die. When the ones that come home and are hailed heros until one day someone found out they were gay. Then they are chastised for being gay. What changed? They are still the same hard working patriot. The only thing different was there choice in life which has been there for a long time. You just didnt know it until now. To me the only thing different is peoples bigotry. So you sweep all the good deeds they did in life under the rug because you cant understand their choice or dont agree with their choice. I myself am not gay but i feel everyone has the same rights. We all want to be treated with respect even if you dont agree. I dont fully agree with the religious aspect but i wont disrespect the people who do. The way people treat gay people is similar in ways to the way Hitler treated Jews.

It's not contagious. If he's lucky, your son will encounter all kinds of people in his lifetime, including gays and lesbians. You don't honestly believe there are no gay men currently in leadership positions in BSA, do you? A gay male is no more likely to introduce your kid to homosexuality than you would be to regale him with the details of YOUR sex life. I know ONE way you can "protect" your son from homosexual influence: VOLUNTEER with the kid's troop! Problem solved.

I'm female and a Lifetime Member of the Girl Scouts, which does not discriminate against homosexuals. At least one of my camp directors when I was a kid was homosexual. There was never any reason for my parents to worry about it. The question of sexuality never came up. PERIOD. I turned out "straight" because I AM "straight". You honestly don't catch it from toilet seats!

But if it bothers you that much, why wouldn't YOU volunteer to work with your son's troop?

Just for the record, it's a total myth that homosexual men and women can be detected by "gaydar". Someone should introduce you to some bodybuilding gay men and a few very feminine lipstick lesbians. Stereotypes simply don't work. An "effeminate" male isn't always gay. A woman who LOOKS "butch" is often straight.

Relax. Your kid won't "turn gay" if he isn't already gay. It's no more a lifestyle than your heterosexuality is.

Suppose your kid IS gay, what then?
