You're getting your "history" from stunningly stupid people, and even if this were true "that's a level of equality we've not seen before" would be a point of pride. The US has been a radical experiment in justice from day one.
No, the history is accurate, and pride comes before a fall (and there is a hell of a lot of twisted pride in your statement).

The BoyScouts said No homosexual Scout leaders or members and as you know homosexuals lost the Supreme Court case. The case that claimed your constitutional rights were being violated.

Despite protests, Boy Scouts reaffirm policy on homosexuality

July 17, 2012, 3:42 PM

Boy-scouts After a confidential two-year review, the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday emphatically reaffirmed its membership policy, which excludes gays from both membership and leadership.
The Scouts cited support from parents as a key reason for keeping the policy and expressed hope that the prolonged debate over it might now subside.

The Scouts’ national spokesman, Deron Smith, told The Associated Press that an 11-member special committee, formed discreetly by top Scout leaders in 2010, came to the conclusion that the exclusion policy “is absolutely the best policy” for the 112-year-old organization.

Smith said the committee, comprised of professional scout executives and adult volunteers, was unanimous in its conclusion – preserving a long-standing policy that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 and has remained controversial ever since.
The Scouts’ chief executive, Bob Mazzuca, contended that most Scout families support the policy, which applies to both adult leaders and Scouts.

“The vast majority of the parents of youth we serve value their right to address issues of same-sex orientation within their family, with spiritual advisers and at the appropriate time and in the right setting,” Mazzuca said.“We fully understand that no single policy will accommodate the many diverse views among our membership or society.”
The Boy Scouts’ policy stands in contrast to that of Girl Scouts of the USA, which allows openly gay leaders.

Colorado, Longmont - 12/2/2011
Ex-Boy Scout Charged with Child Sexual Assault
A former volunteer at San Isabel Boy Scout Ranch has been bound over for trial for sexual assault on a child in Longmont, and law-enforcement officials are worried there could be more victims from the camp.

James Rienholdt "Butch" Cahill, 56, of Leadville is free on $100,000 bail after a preliminary hearing in Longmont on Thursday. He is charged with one count of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, said Longmont police Detective Stacey Graham.
"We have one charge, but multiple people have stepped forward against Cahill," she said Thursday by phone. Graham said that three alleged victims, in addition to the boy he has been charged with assaulting, are from the Longmont area.

Cahill was a volunteer at the ranch for about 10 years, as recently as last summer, according to a letter sent to more than 240 families of Scouts who attended the camp over the past decade, notifying them of the former archery/shooting instructor’s charges and asking whether any scouts had been victimized.

"We are concerned because of the longtime abuse of his victim here," Satur said. "The boy he is charged with abusing was 8 when it began and it continued until the boy was 13. Because of the nature of these crimes, and Cahill's history, we're worried about his time at the Scout camp. "Unfortunately, we would not be surprised if there were more victims."

Cahill’s 20-page arrest affidavit paints a pattern of years of sexual abuse on a boy, now 15, and similar abuse on a now 39-year-old man. Longmont police said the statute of limitations has passed when it comes to prosecuting Cahill in the older case.
Graham said Cahill is divorced, with one biological daughter and stepsons.

Jeff Berger, executive director of the Boy Scouts’ Rocky Mountain Council since last year, said he didn’t know Cahill and that Cahill quit working at the ranch mid-season.“We were shocked to hear of the allegations against James. The alleged allegations are not representative of the principles and ideals of the Boy Scouts of America”, Berger said.

Hmmm can you show me where you outed me for being a man? Do you have any proof of this? This morning when I showered I still had all my woman parts...ya know 50 years ago I was born a woman I have always been a woman, nothing has changed that I know of. Hubby says I still had woman parts last night LOL! When did I become a man?

I am nothing like you Puke, you see I am an honest, compassionate and sane human being - and a woman, nothing like you at all! I never once said I was like you - I did say I knew your type and spent much time with them in a fundie church.

And who are you to define what "True Love" is. There are MANY MANY man and woman sex partners. Love doesnt exist just because there is a man and a woman. Not everyone has your beliefs and others shouldnt be forced to have them. You don't want their beliefs forced upon you. Live and let live. A man loving a man and a woman loving a woman is doing nothing to you. Let them live their lives as they see fit. It has absolutely nothing to do with you and your life. We all know what opinions are like......

Then don't try to force yourselves on everybody. I don't care what you do. That dosen't mean I agree with it. Practice what you preach. Anyone that takes part in such hideous conduct can't possibly think that is normal but I could care less if you all just form a big daisy chain and bugger till your heart's content.

LA Times;

Gay 'marriage' is a given because;

#1 Furiously pushing the gay agenda has influenced acceptance.

*Forget that it was accomplished by being powerfully deceptive...

This has resulted in more people knowing a homosexual.

*Feeling sorry for someone is hardly a good or healthy reason to make a idiotic and ridiculous redefinition of marriage.

#2 Young people strongly support gay 'marriage'.

*Forget the voices of wisdom and experience, gays will settle for a car salesman swindle of the young and ignorant.

CBS Detroit;

The author starts by saying he has no idea why people oppose gay 'marriage'. This right after he says,“Let their be no confusion”... He than goes on to make a blatantly false doctrinal statement about Christianity and doctrine. Zero for two so far. It only gets worse. He connects dots that don't connect, reconstructs history while ignoring the applicable history lesson. Old people are racist and ignorant. They need to answer to their kids AND grand kids.

He concludes by saying he doesn't understand the debate at all. FINALLY, a accurate statement!

Lesbian Lawyer;

Legal distortion with ponderous pontification.

Marengo, have you EVER heard of critical thinking???

Seriously, this is the best you got???

Finally, this is the most significant lesson of history; We ARE our parents. And their parents. Far past 8000 years.

Gay marriage has NEVER survived, that is what is inevitable.

Smile.

Scouts has always been segregated because of sexual orientation. Common sense dictates it. No one is stopping the establishment of gay Scouts.

We already are seeing the consequences of mixing genders in the military. It is ignorant denial to think the same and worse consequences won't occur with homosexual orientation mixed. They still don't allow coed barracks, but they do with homosexuals.

You are incorrect. They DO allow coed barracks, I am a soldier and live in one. Coed barracks started around 1997 for the US Army. It takes mores rules and regs and eyes and ears but it works. I also gay soldiers here that cause NO issued. The issues caused are straight soldiers and these are only personal biases. Even if the law changes to allow gay marriage there will always be people that don't agree. There are still people that think we should enslave people, that women shouldn't have as many rights, that women have no place in the military, etc. This is simply another historical stepping stone for America that will one day be history as gay citizens earn thier rights. It is unconstitutional to deny them of rights. Time changes everything. Just read a history book. Gay couples are not asking you to attend thier marriage, come over for dinner, or tape thier sex. Therefore, not your business. Worry about your own life and let them love who they love.

Exactly, thank you. People need to do some research before having diarrhea of the mouth. It's personal bias and not intelligent in response. How do they answer to the proof of gay animals? Do they think animals actually made the conscious choice to want to be with the same sex or is it nature and they were born this way? I don't care if it's a choice or if someone was born that way. It's their life to live, not anyone else's. However, I have met plenty of children who are obviously gay. You think they decided it with no prior knowledge to just be that way? No, they are simply being themselves and not afraid to yet.

You are asserting that opposite gender heterosexuals room together just like gays can room with their gender orientation.

Or did you just try a little gay twirling...

I would suggest you take your own advice about mouth diarrhea. start by getting your info from more than just gay twirl sites...

Then learn the difference between homosexuality in animals (they know very little about the cause,just like with humans) and SSSB (same sex sexual behavior).
