I do understand how childbirth works. And the stupid thing is you dont get the hilarity of my statement. Hense we give tax dollars for all kinds for crazy crap and this is our next bout. But oh that to far fetched huh?
And a conservative that belives homos are ok? You need to rethink your stance if you are a true conservative.

A conservative that believes in living their own life and not judging others for how they choose to live theirs. Bigot and Conservative do not mean the same thing. Maybe you should rethink your stance based on your homophobic and bigot comments.

And no, I dont get the hilarity of your statement. It would probably be funny if you actually outlined some of the crazy crap you mention. Maybe if in some way you note that you are being satirical I could tell that you are not that ignorant? Otherwise, without the extra help of inflection in tone, body language or demeanor, I assume you are an uneducated bigot.

Looks like the Boy Scouts have a money problem, if they do not allow gays then Merca(medical company)
and UPS take away the support. So if you really want to blame someone look at the brown truck running around the streets.

Only in Louisiana would someone "blame" somebody for trying to end discrimination.

Two sides, it is a private oraganization doesn't that mean they have the right to exclude or include whether right or wrong the term is private.
I think of Hooters, they dont hire ugly fat women, or old women they hire attractive somewhat young women. Is that discrimination, no I dont think so because if going to Hooters I am going not just for the food, but hot women. The other side, I dont think they have the right to judge or question. Just leave it alone. If your gay and want to join just join, dont broadcast hey I am gay any takers. I dont understand the dillema. If you are a male and join you dont step up say the oath and say by the way I like females. And if you do join and state the oath of morally straight, it applies in a wide range of conduct. The word straight means nothing about sexuality.

Go back and read post #30.

And you'd better believe that the day Hooters starts receiving federal funding, it will have to change its discriminatory hiring policies.

Either I am way off or you are. Non profit or private organizations can except federal funds.
A private organization can set up its own standards whether federally funded or not and has the right to exclude. I am not saying it is right but its not illegal? If someone "gay" wants to join boy scouts who will stop them? Do you randomly walk around stating I am gay or I like di_k? No. Just freaken take the oath and be a Boy Scout, is that morally straight? No but I am sure there are lots of liars, cheaters, drinkers, smokers and so on that our members of the Boy Scouts, all equally sinful. Come on. With all the jacked up crap in the world this is the drama we resort to? How about this; start a Boy Scouts of America for the Gay, and exclude all the female loving males. Problemo solved.

Apparently, you didn't read the last part of post #30, so here it is:

Both HUD and White House websites have rules that say no grant-receiving group can discriminate against anyone who wants to use the service.

You're way off, I'm afraid. "Private" organizations which receive federal funding do NOT have the right to exclude or discriminate.

I will just state some facts
BS is based on the orginial foundation of the moral obligational duties as a citizen and to God. Religious background, right? We know not all churchs welcome gay people or a gay marriage, it is up to the philosophies of the church. Next what HUD says does not matter in this case. As for the White House making that statement, I would have to say Bull Shi at. Here is why, I think it is up to the Supreme Court. Also the federal government gives money to Morehouse College I believe was or is an all black male college which is private. Is that discrimination. I could be wrong maybe it is coed, not sure. But I know of three all male colleges to include that one which receive federal money and give students federal grants and loans? I think in the United States there is a total of 66 mens colleges most of which are religious based and some receive federal monies. What is the White House stance on that? You could be right, maybe I am way off. I guess the next issue will be men want to be nuns and its discrimination. Or how about this I think we should all get our Social Security now because waiting till a certain age is discrimination of the young.

Actually, you are wrong.

You're right, BSA and other private organizations have the right to discriminate -- UNLESS and UNTIL they receive federal funding. But such discrimination is in direct conflict with federal policy which states that groups -- private or public -- which discriminate are disallowed from receiving federal grant money.

It's an either/or situation: Either you stop discrimination, or you lose federal funding.

That's called discrimination! If the federal government cuts funding for Boy Scouts for not allowing gays into their organization, isn't that just the same thing? Sounds like the federal government would be discriminating against the traditions and ideas of the Boy Scouts!

Do we have scouts in Leesville?

you can't prove that it is genetic. It is a lifestyle choice and a sexual behavior.
