I agree gays should NOT be allowed as members of the BSA. As scouts we are taught to be morally straight and to me and many others homosexuality is not moral at all. I believe that allowing gays will devalue the scouting expierence.

To me, hate is not moral at all.

To me, condemning your neighbor for the way he/she was born is NOT loving your neighbor.

To me, and to Biblical scholars, discriminating on the basis of sexuality if NOT Christian.

"the Bible supplies no basis for the condemnation of homosexuality."

Using the studies of Yale historian John Boswell (Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe, LJ 7/94), New Testament seminary professor L. William Countryman, and others, Helminiak examines the story of Sodom (where the sin was inhospitality), Jude's decrying sex with angels, and five texts-Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, Romans 1:27, I Corinthians 6:9, and I Timothy 1:10-all of which, he concludes, "are concerned with something other than homogenital activity itself."

“Scholars…maintain that the supposedly antihomosexual passages are NOT blanket CONDEMNATIONSof homosexual persons and acts.

“Indeed, in some cases, these verses aren't about homosexuality at all; they meant quite different things to those for whom they were first written, peoples whose social conceptions of sexuality were vastly different from ours.

“…historical biblical scholarship holds that these believers' conception of inerrancy is naively based, for English versions of the originally Hebrew and Greek scriptures are rife with problematic translations.

If you gay sluts want to be in scouts start your own organization and quit crying like a bus load of girls with a mice running up their legs. Scouts don't want you and neither does the military. Put you dresses on and go shopping or something.

I look at it this way, if the catholic church can allow gay priests to keep cornholing kids the why can't the scouts do the same?
