Several states do indeed have statutes or appellate court holdings protecting sexual orientation as a suspect, or quasi suspect class, including California, Connecticut, Massachussets, and New Jersey.
I'm guessing the National BSA is responding to complaints from those who would like to see the matter be decided at the local level.

In fact, the Office of Civil Rights actually has a defined function of defending the BSA against attack on account of their anti-gay policies.

I think that the BSA has actually backed itself into a very bad corner. They took a strong stand against gays for political reasons--no doubt believing that this would counter the trouble that they were facing due to having failed to deal adequately with child-abusing adults in their ranks over time. Now they are beginning to realize that they look ridiculous. The kid who was denied Eagle Scout, and the lesbian den mother were clearly not endangering anyone.

And it is clear that the country as a whole is becoming more knowledgeable and more tolerant of people who are gay. Some of this is a result of families (including the woman who started PFLAG) who decided that they were simply NOT going to throw out their children who are gay--or pretend whatever they used to pretend about people in the closet.

This is not the only relevance problem faced by BSA, but it is a big one.

I know people who have studied the Bible extensively, as well as those who have studied the law. Understanding of both are enhanced by a study of context, intent, history and such.

Recently heard a scholar speak about the Apostle Paul and some of his conflicting pronouncements about women, marriage, etc. His take--supported by study--had to do with the various folks who copied over Paul's words either misinterpreting, or willfully inserting their own understandings and beliefs to soften what were some fairly radical, and feminist, views.

Certainly persuasive, and helped to explain some conflicts in the words.

I have heard other views, as well. Another minister suggested that Paul's beliefs about the role of women in the emerging church developed and became more liberal over time.

But, simple?

Not so much.

The minds of normal, rational humans logically deduce their sex based on the standard equipment provided them by Nature's chromosomal sexual identity which is embedded within their every cell.

Further, where will the delusions end and what will be their ultimate impact on society? Is 23 genders enough? And how will the BSA accommodate them all?

In other words, you reject God's ability and biblical promise to preserve His own Word for all time.

Following that thought to its natural conclusion...if God is powerless to preserve His own written message to mankind, then the Resurrection is rendered moot.

So--you became straight when you deduced that you were a boy? Or when you figured out the mechanics of male-female intercourse?

What were you before then?

No--sorry.

God's Word is God's Word.

And man's understanding (including the God inspired writings of the Bible) is man's understanding--fallible.

Corinthians 13
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Obviously, you are not of a normal, rational mind.

To put it simply -- even for the Darwinists -- the lack of necessary tools for procreation is a means for believing homosexual behaviors to be abnormal. Where natural selection reigns, homosexual practitioners meet a biological dead end.

The Word of God -- known as the Holy Bible -- is infallible.
That include's the letters penned by the Apostle Paul, who wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, as did all biblical authors.

Reader is alleging -- in direct contradiction to God's own promise -- that portions of the Word of God [interestingly, those addressing women...LOL] were miscopied through the ages and are, therefore, unreliable.

How convenient.

It is telling that the folks who own the most rigid, narrow minded, hateful and just plain empirically wrong opinions are the most hardcore Christian absolutists.

Sperm donors, surrogate mothers.

Wait, you are telling me that XX/XX and XY/XY cannot reproduce naturally?

Seems Darwin must be a bigot!
