Debunking the Boy Scouts of America's Homophobic Logic

Feb 9, 2013 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.huffingtonpost.com

Scouting believes same-sex attraction should be introduced and discussed outside of its program with parents, caregivers, or spiritual advisers, at the appropriate time and in the right setting.

The Boy Scouts is not an organization that exists only in the United States. It's ridiculous that the whole argument for banning gays depends on the assumption that this hasn't been dealt with before and can't be handled in a civilized way. They don't ban gays from scouting in them UK or Canada. Perhaps the US scouting leaders should stop staring at their own navels and join the rest of he scouting world.

And we wonder why right-wing nuts go around massacring innocent souls at camp.

As a government funded organization, they should not have the right to discriminate as long as they are accepting money. In fact, it is offensive that the gay community is helping to fund a hate organization through tax dollars. I say, cut them off until they not only realize and correct their ways but also demonstrate their future commitment to the LGBT community: perhaps through an education program.

There must be something highly attractive about homosexuality to you for you to think children would want to embrace it.

That's the part people like you never stop to consider. What is so enticing about same sex activity that you think a child will suddenly ignore their own built in orientation?

Bigots think we are gay by choice but who in their right mind would choose to be gay when they face so much hostility in this nation? Not even a child would be gay by choice nor could they. They never stop to think about or just don't give a damn which it's probably the latter. It's not a choice!

“and how does this effect you?”

I don't think they care. There's a lot of people who think everyone should believe as they do and be as they are.
