Thank goodness somebody has the guts to stand up to 12 year old gay Boy Scouts. Members of Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown and Rineyville Baptist Church have pleny to be proud of. Yes Sir -- Let's nip this faggotry in the bud and ensure our own entry into Heaven, where there ARE no Gays...apparently.

Because this makes the world a better place?! No. This is pathetic, do people really think being gay is a choice? I thought being a Christian was all about setting good examples, having integrity and the golden rule. Way to go Severns Valley, way to discriminate again the human race.

So because you believe one way makes it the "correct way"? They are standing up for what they believe!!! You are a liberal turd!!! They have every right to believe whatever they chose, ESPECIALLY when it states in the Bible that homosexuality is a sin. If you don't like that belief, go to church somewhere else!!! That is your right, and freedom to do so....

Your opinion means as little to them as theirs does to you... And your opinion means jack Sh!t.

We have those who are talking about spiritual matters who have NO idea of the content of the Bible. At least those who are taking a stand, did use scripture as a basis for their decision. It's not THEIR belief. It's based on what the Bible states. Heaven? Do you even know what is involved to go? Doubt it. Misinterpreting the entire explanation of the decision by these two churches along with Southeast Christian in Louisville. Educate yourself.

These churches have the right to do anything they want in regard to supporting programs like the "Boy Scouts". After all, "It's what the Bible Says!" The Bible was also used as the basis for justifying slavery, embarking on the Crusades, conducting the Inquisition and the ongoing subjugation of women -- among other things. Folks aren't "misinterpreting" anything. They know intolerance and bigotry when they see it, even cloaked in phony, hypocritical righteousness. And if heaven means hanging around with a bunch of a-holes like you for eternity, then I'll pass! Thank you.

Where do you go to church? You do have an in-depth understanding of what the New Testament brings into the picture... I can't imagine any Christian dismissing the reality of going to heaven. I think you should take a look at where you stand. P.S. They also know SIN.

I'm not a big fan of Severns Valley, but they should not cave in to whatever society is trying to promote. I'm glad they are taking a stand.

I've always wondered how a 12 year old knows they are gay. When we were 12, we were so busy we didn't have time to think about things. Sounds like today's kids need to occupy their minds with something more constructive than trying to figure out if they are a boy or a girl. Hope more churches take a stand.

I haven't supported the Boy Scouts in years because of their stance on gay's. Now I will start buying from them again. As far as the churches go, I don't go to them & won't support them either. They have a right to their belief just as I have a right to mine. Please people stop using the bible as the reason for why you think the way you do. You are just being a hypocrite.

Preach it sister. This is my exact thought. Why can't people just be nice to each other, why do they use their religion as a reason.

My point is that I cannot believe a just God would prefer hate spewing, self-righteous bigots to humble, kind and respectful people -- regardless of their sexual preference. I'm just not buying THAT reality. God made all of us, and loves all of us. And while some of you may accept and believe that homosexuality is a sin, many do not. It's not a lifestyle that a person consciously selects, a sin that can be "prayed away" or a "disease" that can be cured. People are either straight, gay, both or neither. That's how God made them. And if it's really a "sin," it's one without victims -- just participants. 3.8% of the population self-identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. The rest, and only God knows how many that is, remain in the closet due to fear, self-loathing or not wanting to upset their families. Why? Because of bigotry like that being encouraged by many churches. That's million of folks, no matter how you count them, whose sexual preference is an "abomination" to God. Really? So you "haters", look around. Somebody close to you, maybe a family member, lifelong friend or trusted co-worker, may be a closeted homosexual. What if it was YOUR sister, best buddy or son? Would you want them treated like scum? If your answer is yes, honk once if you think THAT'S getting you into heaven!

Without victims? I could have a desire to involve myself sexually with many partners. Does that make me a sinner? Yes. When one ACTS upon his desires and thinks those thoughts, you are sinning. Bigot? Usually those who are very critical of the church throw that word around. Those are ones who look for opportunities to make these comments every time. If it were my sister, I would have to love her. However, that would NOT change the fact that she is living in sin if she were acting upon those feelings. Did someone ask where you go to church?

These churches that say they will make no changes are fine. But I just wonder what they really say at home, behind closed doors?

How does involving yourself with many partners, assuming they're willing, make them victims. And this imaginary sister of yours, who is living in "sin." Would you want people to treat her like scum because of her sexual preference? Where, when and if I go to church is nobody's business. But be assured that my religious training and background was stringent and comprehensive. I was taught that my church was right on all issues, that our doctrine was the only true path and that unless others followed our example, we would be pretty much occupying heaven by ourselves. Somehow, we'd supplanted the Jews as God's Chosen People. THEY sure weren't getting to the Pearly Gates! Made me think "outside the pew" about over-zealous organized religion, and think twice before using religion as a reason to judge others. We're all God's people.

Sounds as though you need to find one which is on target. You could use some fine tuning with your facts. Deserting and not being involved certainly won't help. Again, your responses are TYPICAL of those outside the church as one other person stated.

Since it is God who condemns the gay lifestyle, I don't think you will get much sympathy from Him when you condone it and possibly live it yourself.

I for one am pleased to see churches drop the boy scouts. I have never believed that a church should be involved with them anyway. just like the public schools. every church has different views on some matter. its seems that the loudest church is (in they're eyes only) the right and only way. which excludes most scouts and students. so good riddance church. we can learn to camp all by ourselves. there's a place for religious teaching. church and home. not the scouts or school
