<quoted text>No cupcake, I have facts that stand in stark contrast to your flaming ignorance on the subject. Rationalist? That's almost as sickly hilarious as calling yourself an advocate of traditional values. Mary please, you might buy your self-deceptive lie, but don't expect me to play along, or even be nice about it. You have been given fact, logic and reason with a link to one of the most comprehensive studies on the subject which you flat out ignored. You are nothing more than a closed-minded misinformed fool who isn't afraid to share your dangerous ignorance. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Cupcake, you might want to advise your gay activist friends to clean up wikipedia before you go spewing your "empirical" evidence on forums. While you're at it, have them change the definition of it by deleting the "quackery" part in the dictionary. On 3...GO! Scrub...scrub...

Congratulations? As a reply to what I actually wrote, that comment really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What do you think I think you made up?

It's about time. An organization that is supposed to boost individual's self esteem and self worth not including a segment of population who may need it the most? The decision to exclude gay boys and men [and women as some den mothers are gay] was totally backward thinking and un-does everything the organization was supposed to stand for.
Lets get back to the original discussion. The boy scouts were founded back in 1911. For God and countryetc. etc. etc.
Since all you gay people are soo original, why not start you Own organization??? Stop trying to bust up an organization that has stood for many years on Values America was founded on. Its crazy how everyone knowing the foundations roots,want to somehow change it to fit their own agendas.
I vote for the scouts to keep their integrity. Follow the oath of the boy scouts or get out. In the case of the gays, start up your own gay scout organization or whatever you want to call it.who knows, it just might be a big hit!

Little darlin', you get to be whatever in the heck I want to call you. You can either take it like a man sweetie, or you can keep whining like a little b*tch like this. Oh and it only encourages me when I know it makes you squirm.

Good luck sweetness, I have a feeling you're gonna need it.

I agree... if ignorant christard bigots want an exclusive hate filled little b#stard organization then they should be free to do so... all hail the KKK BSA. However... sorry no tax money to do so and stop whining when big corporate donars stop giving to your hate... pay for it your damn self.

I'm glad we agree

A woman once told me that she had researched info on her pregnancy and labor and felt she could cope with the pain because she knew the technicalities of it, knew what to expect and could rationalize what she was experiencing. She felt she could manage the pain on her own because she was aware of the physical concept. Big story change when the pain actually manifested and she was surprised that she couldnít manipulate the pain to a manageable level.
Moral of the story; just because you can pick apart a few statistics and facts doesnít mean you can put them back together any old way you please and come out with the truth.
Moral of the story, absent anything which anyone would confuse with fact to refute anything I actually said, we get a fallacious analogy. I've given you the facts as they are dear, it's not my fault that you are so blinded by your own prejudices to see them.

Thank you. I don't understand why it's even an issue. I'm hoping they stand on their principles and not cave to social pressure or potential loss of funding.

Hey Papaw, I didn't realize you had a background in medicine. How much would you charge me for a pelvic examination?

I'm not blinded by hate or prejudices. I accept, or not, each individual as they come. I may admire some characters more than others but hate I do not.
I am beginning to suspect that you like to rearrange facts to suit your purpose which may include coercion of sexually confused young people.

Yep. Agenda driven, twisted facts.
I'm just not following why it is so important to force that agenda upon the kids. That is what raises my hackles and my suspicions. It is understood the desire to share what others enjoy, but why the steadfast need to share with others what they do not desire? There is an ulterior motive. I could be wrong,but my near sixty years of life experiences has taught me that smoke generally does equate to fire. I'm familiar with the quest for recognition by the gay and lesbians. I was around when being gay wasn't the cool thing. Now we're being told that the kids have to share in it or at least embrace it. Nope. Simply accepting that something is abnormal doesn't mean that the kids have to be taught about it or subjected to witnessing it. Why the hell is that so important? I already know.

First you whine that I gave you a link to Wikipedia when I didn't and now you give me a Wikipedia link to the definition of the concept of empirical evidence? Are you going to make up what you are passing off as your mind at some point, or is this all that I should expect? By the way dear, I already knew what empirical evidence means dear, that is why I kept telling you that was what you were being told. Jeez, what a moron.
