I believe psychologists refer to your little ploy here as "redirection" or "misdirection"; trying to change the focus onto others and away from you admitting that you're a homophobic bigot who hates children if they're different.
Well another one proves they are brain dead.Thanks for proving me right again,keep up the good work.

So when do you think your psychosis began to develop, Jake? Did the other kids in school call you "Fatty", or make fun of your clothes; something like that?
Thanks again,keep up the good work.It's fun watching you spew gibberish and i love a good laugh so please don't disappoint me.

Jake, I think you are probably the only person who thinks that was a clever reply which would actually just prove you're just not very bright.

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.
Sad to say, and I am a Christian, that Christianity is supposed to be the most forgiving belief in the world yet Christians are for the most part the most condemning, divisive and nosey people I know.

They preach forgiveness and that God accepts you as you are yet they don't live 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 Episcopalean churchs would be happy to sponsor Boy Scout Troops. They have progressed into the 21st century.

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 can tell if they're gay by the way they walk, talk and wave their hands around like a girl. If you would pay a little attention to the way they act, you could tell too.

The discussion is about BSA and their decision to admit gays into their organization. I wrote that some who demonize these young people because of their sexual orientation are bigots.

I saw an eagle at the lake today and called it an eagle, this does not make me a bird. I am glad that you are concerned. I am sure you wouldn’t want to associate with a bigot.

Yes he is. By his definition, he is.
It's common hypocrisy. The far left and the far right are both guilty of it. It highlights the incongruencies of many of their nonsensical arguments perpetuated only to maintain control and financial gain. The truth has, and always will live in the grey areas between the extremes.

Still, that's no good reason to hate children. Would you like the number to a good psychiatrist?
So you resort to bullying to make your argument?? Further hypocrisy. Pathetic.

The man asked a simple question to which direct answer was outright refused. You folks are perceiving strength in your support for one another, but it makes you no more right than he. All it seems to do is give you a sense of justification for bullying.

The boy scouts should switch to Episopalean churches. They have moved into the 21st century.They also have gay bishops and perform gay marriages.
I bet that gets all you snake handlers upset.

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?
all gay people are not child molesters. Most child Molesters ( that were Boy scout leaders) are straight. A child molester is not a sexuall oreintation thing it is a mental thing they are preditors

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.
Have you even read the Ten Commandments? You should be living by 5-10 no matter your religion or that you are an Atheist or an agnostic, only the Jews and Christians can understand completely by their faith and obey 1-4.

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.
Don't you mean putting politics ahead of the kids?

That is what they have done. It is a sad day for the youth in this country.

ALL child molesters that were Boy Scout leaders are gay.(100%)

Gay is a mental thing. There is help for these peoople. Get them help, instead of destroying the Boy Scouts of America.
