They wouldn't let us take over until the clock struck midnight

It is now noon and the entire Boy Scouts of America is rubbish in less than 12 hours

We deserve a merit badge
12 hours? They've been losing sponsors and facilities since May when they made the announcement.

That would be the gay obsession with naked boys, they are the people that want into the boy scouts. They should start their own club.
Except for one simple fact. For years the BSA has had a sex abuse scandal as big as the RCC.

Since adult gay males are banned and always have been banned, who do you think is molesting these children?

It ain't gay men honey. I was hoping that honesty might be one of your New Years resolutions but I forgot how important denial is to your survival.

They began losing support way before they made this decision.

Nope. My experience, both personal and professional, shows otherwise.

You see, I examine what is, as it is, not as I imagine it should be.

Educated society, every psychological and pediatric and social work professional group knows that variations in sexual orientation are perfectly normal.

You weren't able to address the other issue, due to your immense stupidity: Objections to the ban on openly gay Scouts are not about gay Scouts in the showers...because they've been there with the bigoted, former policy in place all along.

Even you fundie rejects should be able to figure this point out.

You might wish so, xstain mullah, but the opposite is what's happening...as usual. The hateful "religious" types are leaving the Scouts to form a more bigoted version, thus marginalizing their sick selves further.

Praiz!

Exactly. This is why allowing gay men to be scout leaders is INSANE! Would you allow women to be boy scout leaders and allow them to shower with boys? No different than allowing gay men in. This is why I don't shower at the gym after working out. Too many queers in there checking me out.
You say that like you think your worthy of being checked out. I'd wager not.

The Boy Scouts are the lagging indicator here. They'll be amongst the very last to remove their still extant vestiges of homophobic bigotry.

When the military went coed and now this Gay stuff, I knew then America was doomed. Destruction from within will destroy this country.. Not Al Qaida or the Commies.

The crazy thing is the BSA is one of the last in the world to have this rule. As far as I know every other Scouting organization has not had a ban in decades and they have had no problems.

Lets make a law that gay people can have birthdays, but straight people get to eat more cake - you know, to send the right messages to kids

Correct. Scouting International has had no such policy, and any problems that have occurred (a few) are dealt with expeditiously.

You aren't nearly as bad as most gays in the " as I imagine it should be" department but you're still in that group.

That's true, they want no part of camping out with homosexuals, I don't blame them.
The Scouts are losing members, sponsors and facilities. Looks like you just might get your own club after all.

You mean like the trolls who spend so much time on GLBT threads, pretending to hate gay people while constantly demanding attention from them?

Like yourself?
