Happy job hunting.

Heterosexual monsters? NAMBLA is a group of homosexual pedos who as a member of the gay community fight for their right to be predators.
Sweetie, NAMBLA hasn't been a welcome member of the gay community for decades and hasn't existed as much more than a figment of the paranoid heterosexual imagination for most of that time. Yes there are men who are homosexual who also feetishize boys and should be kept away from them, but the reality is that they are actually very few and far between in comparison to the men who are heterosexual who fetishize boys. How do you imagine the Boy Scout pervert files got so extensive when they deliberately excluded gay men and women from volunteering? Heterosexual monsters. You refuse to see the really ugly monsters in the forest for your obsession with a possible gay monster being behind one tree. That is what happened to the Catholic Church and what happened with the Boy Scouts. The denial that men who are completely straight to themselves and those around them would ever do such a thing. What better cover than an aura of heterosexuality?

The discussion is whether or not to allow each chapter to make up it's own mind. You know like the U.S. Supreme Court is deciding whether or not each state can make up it's own mind.
Maybe the BoyScouts action will help the court come to a decision.
And here I thought you were incapable of expressing a thought without making this site guilty of copyright infringement by cutting and pasting articles that you have no right to. It's a shame that now you finally express a non-stolen thought it isn't particularly well thought out. This wasn't a step in the right direction, it was a headfirst trip down a long f*cking flight of stairs in the right direction with the local organizations being left to sort out the mess the national organization just dumped on them. If that is what you want the Supremes to learn from, you can kiss all hope goodbye right now. As for the marriage cases, the best you can hope for is the right of the states to prohibit such marriages, but the loss of their power to deny them recognition when they were legally married anywhere else. Just like any other marriage.

The main problem I have with it, is that this is a private organization. Why should they feel pressured to change their values to please a minority? Why can't the gay community start their own boy scouts instead of forcing BSA to change and accommodate something that goes against the boy scout promise?

They may be posing as hetero but secretly they are homo. The perversion of child preference is another worm all together.

They are a private organization that accepts a great deal of public funding and support courtesy of the taxpayers. They went through the same convolutions when the local groups confronted segregation that went on well into the 1970's. Why should lesbian and Gay volunteers who have been accepted by their local groups and gay young people who have grown up in many instances an accepted member of their group be punished simply because some on the national board have "issues" with homosexuality?

That is a dangerously false assumption that simply isn't supported by the facts. Roughly 2/3 of the men who sexually abuse boys identify as heterosexual and have a sexual history with other adults that backs that up. They aren't "secretly homo", they have become sexually attracted to something they see as an object, children who just happen to be male.

Another LIE the homosexuals want people to believe. Any man who has sex with a boy or a man is a HOMOSEXUAL! End of story!

Hogwash!
They pretend to be hetero, it's their cover. Also, it's what they have been taught is acceptable and they don't break out until maturation reaches a point. What could possibly occur that would "turn" an average hetero into a same sex child predator?
Either you like the plumbing or you don't.
Since you claim to do research let me ask what it shows about the probability of opposite sex child molesters molesting same sex children?

Cupcake, I've got more than three decades of empirical scientific evidence to back my claims up, what, other than anti-gay propaganda can you offer? You are repeating nothing more than a lie which is incredibly dangerous to children, you should be so proud.

The single most likely suspect any time a boy is sexually abused by a man is the man putting it to mommy, especially if that man isn't daddy. When it comes to what the literature calls "homosexual pedophiles", the reason why they are more "successful" in victimizing boys than those who are "heterosexual pedophiles" average in victimizing girls is that they aren't the least bit homosexual by nature and therefore not the least bit suspicious.

When did they choose to stop supporting them? Should be the question. Research Harry Hay (grand marshall of the San Francisco gay pride parade 1999.)

The scouts are under no pressure to support gay people, but companies and organizations are also under no pressure to support the scouts.. If they want to be a private exclusive organization, then good for them, but don't whine when major donors pull out funding... The problem with christards is they have sucked of the good charity of others to long all while they preach hate... I say good riddens to their cult

I would hardly consider 1999 "decades" ago. Harry Hay was an early gay rights activist, communist, and avid supporter of NAMBLA. He was thought so highly of in the gay community that as a dignitary, he was named grand marshal of the 1999 San Fransisco Gay Pride Parade. I'm sorry to say, this is not a figment of paranoid heterosexual's imaginations.
