On Thursday the national Boy Scout office voted to end the current day Boy Scout program. Their decision will definitely hurt the organization and eventually shut down the entire organization.

Why would any parent allow their son to share a tent with a child molester?

How does anyone know if your gay, Bi or straight? If you want to join the Boy Scouts or be Scout leader I don't think anyone is going to ask what you do in the bedroom. So it sounds like these queers are making a issue of it just to cause trouble. So how does anyone know they are gay unless the gay person makes issue of it?

I guess when they attend meetings with their same sex partner and flaunt it.

they did not shut down the program, they just changed the rules. So IMO, if there is nothing wrong with sharing a tent with a gay boy, there is also nothing wrong with sharing a tent with a female.

I do foresee a lot of church affiliated boy scout troops shutting down.

The national BSA Executive Board & it's members voted to drop the ban on allowing openly gay youth to be a part of the program. The voting went heavily in favor of dropping the ban. I think this is a good move that shows scouting is keeping in step with society and is a positive message to gay kids of which the suicide rate is very high due to the way they are put down and ridiculed.

I agree with the poster above that some of the churches that sponsor troops & cub packs are likely to raise hell but the issue is what's good for kids and being in the Scouts is a great program for young men and teaches them some life skills while promoting good citizenship and patriotism. In reality nothing is really going to change. I think the last thing a gay kid wants is to draw attention to something that makes him subject to ridicule.

I'm a former scout and I support this move & am proud that the Scouting program is putting the well being of kids ahead of politics.

You need to learn the difference between somebody gay and a child mollester/pedophile. They are in no way related. The BSA has implemented safeguards against pedophiles having the opportunity to prey on scouts.

Being gay has nothing to do with pedophillia. This has been established, documented, and recognized universally by the psychatric profession. If this issue is this important to you then you need to be educate yourself on the facts.

Teaching kids that it's okay to engage in deviant, perverted sex acts is hardly good for them. As you noted in your post, such behavior has led many kids to suicide as the guilt for engaging in such perversion overwhelms them.

What is good for kids is to teach them solid moral principles, which is what the BSA has historically done. By now changing course and condoning immoral behavior, the BSA is undermining it's very foundation.

The issue isn't politics, it's a matter of moral principle. Left wingers like you of course are happy, but then again you support most things that are causing the degradation of our culture.

So using your reasoning, by not making the fat scouts go on a diet, the BSA are teaching scouts to eat in a way that would harm their bodies and cause and early death. No, the truth is that some things are not everybody's business - including your sexuality.

Get your morals at home, not at the scouts or even church. Maybe you would be happier if we could live under the law of Moses.

The decision to include these young people into the Scouting program may weed out some bigots who are intolerantly devoted to their own opinions and prejudices, this would be good.

I think the word bigot fits many of those who are intolerant towards these young people.

Gay kids have enough problems without being excluded from an organization that's whole purpose is to help young people learn leadership and self-reliance. Christianity teaches we are all sinners so why should one person be singled out because they're different? Scouting should be for everybody especially those who need some positive things in their lives.

Why do you ask Jake? Are you the kind of person who look down upon those who don't follow your religion?
