Two weeks ago my sons returned from a week at Camp Winton, a boy scout camp in our council.

If the antigay are teaching children to be tiny scumbags, they'll be held culpable. The antigay cannot expect people not to call them abusive and ignorant when they invite bad publicity because anyone can see they're indoctrinating kids with their own neuroses, weaknesses, and quite literal hatred. Apparently, sensible people are holding the antigay culpable for the sake of the kids -- and apparently those sensible people just will not let this issue go. *shrug* Live with it.

Segregation on the basis of race by State & Federal goverments was outlawed in 1954.

This is a private organization simply enforcing its membership and leadership peragotives according to their fundemental consitutional right to free association.

That issue has already been asked and answered in "Boy Scouts of America et al. v. Dale" 530 U.S. 640 (2000),

That was a case of the Supreme Court of the United States deciding on June 28, 2000, It held that the constitutional right to freedom of association allows a private organization like the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to exclude a person from membership when "the presence of that person affects in a significant way the group's ability to advocate public or private viewpoints."[

Got an idea. Why don't a bunch of gay former scouts get together and start up the Gay BSA? Better yet, get together with the lesbians and have a Gay BSA and GSA. That way parents will have a heads up about your organization. If they want their children to be away at camp with gay counselors, then by all means, let them send their kids to the gay camps. If they don't, they can't stick with the traditional boy and girl scouts. Everybody is happy.

Ah, segregation! What an excellent idea and certainly no surprise it comes from you, Sickers. Just can't help showing off that fancy Grove City education, can you?

Again...another gay opolgist brings up a concept (segregation) that simply does not fit the discussion at hand.

When GLAAD, The Human Rights Campaign, and other gay groups open up membership & leadership roles to conservative Christians I will be sure to remind them that this is a foolish and unnessesary capitulation because they are not currently "segregating" anything.

I suggest you show this post to your gay uncle. At the very least, you can prepare to be left out of his will.

You do realize that there is anecdotal evidence that homosexuality tends to run in families?

I guess it's just a consequence that every single organization Gay's have been affiliated with winds up in wide spread homosexual child molestation, all of them, ALL OF THEM! Millions and millions! Big Brother, The Boy Scouts, thousands of cases in The Boy Scouts, youth camps,sporting programs and especially sporting programs,Sandusky, Bernie Fine are the most prominent. The Catholic Church, thousands of boys molested by homosexual pedophiles.

Then we take a look at other countries where homosexuality where laws and restrictions have been relaxed and what do we see?

Gays boycotting to have the age for anal sex with boys lower to 14 and even 13. No, Gays are not pedophiles.The one thing I think we have demonstrated is what deceptive liars Gays are, The true bastions of evil.

The Boy Scouts of America has long kept an extensive archive of secret documents that chronicle the sexual abuse of young boys by scout leaders over the years. The "perversion files", a nickname the Boy Scouts are said to have used for the documents, have rarely been seen by the public, but that could change in the coming weeks in an Oregon courtroom. The lawyer for a man who was molested in the 1980's by a scout leader has obtained about 1,000 Boy Scout sex files and is expected to release some of them at a trial that began Wednesday. The lawyer said the files showed how the Boy Scouts have covered up abuse for decades. The attorney for the Boy Scouts said the that the files helped scouting leaders weed out sex offenders, especially repeat offenders who may have changed names or moved in order to join another local scouting organization.

The politically incorrect truth of the matter...

Homosexuality and pedophilia are related. They are both abnormal sexual impulses.

There is a strong correlation between the homosexuality and pedophilia. There are far more homosexual pedophiles than there are heterosexual pedophiles...as a percentage of their respective populations.

I beleive that there is also a genetic basis for both. However, there is also a genetic basis for heterosexual rejection of homosexuality and pedophilia.

Early human groups frowned upon both homosexuality as well as pedophilia. Both needlessly spread disease and wasted limited resources without the benefit of producing offspring.

This is the unemotional, and unbiased reality of the issue. Live with it.

There are far more heterosexual pedophiles than homosexual pedophiles. I thought you might want to add this little detail to your very erudite bullshit.

Are there? And the fact that Heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals by about 99 to 1 proves that homosexuality produces a much larger percentage of pedophile predators.

There's also a very strong correlation between criminal behavior and homosexuality...

The reality is, homosexual behavior is linked with pedophilia and criminal behavior...

Gay pedophiles - a fine line between your average homosexual and your gay pedophile, always gravitate towards careers that give them access to children. Teachers,'football' coaches, "alter boys" and on and on.
