There are 11 comments on the lezgetreal.com story from Feb 4, 2013, titled Anti-Gay Politicians Predict Mass Exodus From Boy Scouts . In it, lezgetreal.com reports that:

Back when Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was being considered for elimination, Conservatives were falling all over themselves predicting that it would lead to a mass exodus from the military because, well, the military is full of manly men and manly men don’t like gays. The mass exodus of manly men from the military has not happened.

Much better would be a mass exodus of anti-gay politicians, preferably to Iran or someplace equally as enlightened.

I wish the anti-gay would move someplace where their hatred is embraced -- like Uganda. Or Saudi Arabia.

Oh my how this song sounds SOOO familiar! Gay rights opponents love to "cry wolf" every time another step is taken towards equality!

The story references their screams of fear regarding the repeal of DADT - and nothing happened, but remember when Massachusetts was the first state to legalize gay marriage. They predicted the complete and utter decline in the institution of marriage. Ironically, over the past 5 years, DIVORCE in MASS has declined and is one of the 5 states (all northeast states) with the lowest divorce rates in the country. So, it seems, the enlighted folks in those states TRUELY understand what marriage means AND that gay marriage did NOT undermine hetero marriage.

The pure fact of the matter on the BSA policy falls on WHERE scouts meet - churches!

ANd here's where churches will FAIL to see the impact of locking out the BSA from their facilities - public backlash! That's right, in just a matter of days, you'll start seeing and hearing scout troops on the tv, radio and print asking for help in finding a new place to meet because the church they WERE using kicked them out because they allow gay scouts and Scout Masters.

Talk about a PR nightmare! Now we'll KNOW which churches REALLY follow the bible and what it teaches about love and tolerance. Oh, and how does kicking the scouts out of your hall fit into the "hate the sin, love the sinner" argument. How does a 10 year old STR8 boyscout benefit from losing the place the meet for their troop? I want to hear the churches say, "Sorry Johnny, we'd love to have your troop back, but we can't risk having gay folks on our property and exposing them to our faith, our God and church family." That makes alot of sense!

So, go ahead church leaders. Kick the BSA out of your churches - other organizations will flock to offer their facilities to host troop meetings and YOU ALL will be seen for the 2-faced, bigoted groups you've sadly become.

Allowing homosexual leaders would do the same thing to BSA as it did to the Roman Catholic Church: financial disaster due to liabiity.

The boy scouts in other countries have already decided to allow gay members and gay leaders. Prove your claim that this has resulted in the boy scouts in those places becoming financially bankrupt due to an increase in abuse charges!

We can wait for you to get back on that.

The anti-gay have NEVER been able to prove any of their many claims to this and that.. They should be re-named the anti-veracity gang.. Only the retards and the holier-than-thou crowd (same group often) take them seriously anymore..

Allowing you to continually use false names CALEB, MAX, RAND, THRUTHTELLER, JAYCE, DAVID MOORE, JEFF is a shocking disaster for human decency.

Lying yet again, your pal Satan is the Father of lies. I assume when Satan is busy, you babysit.

They just got done screaming about this exact thing when they cancelled DADT and from what I have read there is almost ZERO problems with gays in the military. A few bumps in the road, but mostly no one cares. No one but tight asses who cannot stand to think that somewhere, someone is having a good time.

That has to be it. They'd prefer to shriek about the sky falling rather than allay their fears by looking at the experience of other countries. Of course, like Sarah Palin, most of them couldn't find Europe on a map, but surely one or two of them could find Canada.

But then that would require admitting that treating others with equality strengthens rather than weakens. That just wouldn't fit into their agenda. And it surely wouldn't play well in Pekin or Grove City.

Yes, there will likely be an exodus, though not as large as conservatives predict. Unlike the military with DADT, these are kids under the control of their parents. We'll see how many clueless, christian parents pull their boys from the scouts. This will punish the child for the stupidity of his parental units and demonstrate to their community the bigotry of the parents. I suspect that the boys will cry and plead to be allowed to go back so they can be with their friends. The same stupid parents might relent, but only aster they give lessons in how to say no and what things they should say no to. The funny thing is that scouts have been using campouts for more than a century as a place where they can experiment and explore. It's not gay; it's being a boy. The parents have forgotten what they were like at that age and what they did with their friends.

So, yes, an exodus. But let's see how it all plays out when the neighbors start making fun of the bigotted phobes in their 'hood.
