Boy Scouts' Anti-Gay Stand Betrays Jewish Roots

There are 7 comments on the Forward story from Jul 27, 2012, titled Boy Scouts' Anti-Gay Stand Betrays Jewish Roots. In it, Forward reports that:

"What is a nice Jewish boy doing in a uniform like this?'" asked Maryland psychiatrist Alan J. Horowitz in his 1986 essay entitled "Reflections of a Jewish Scouter." Today, almost twenty years later, it may seem like the Boy Scouts of America may be moving further than ever from Jewish values, as evidenced by the organization's reaffirmation of its ... (more)

articles written by evil and wicked, false prophets. and worshipers of halooseefer, are not even worth reading. with the same kind of crap for brains, that got this world and their grandmother destroyed, the last two Torot times. and your all now, run out of chances.

well frijoles: they should not let anyone in, who they are not sure whether they are a boy or girl scout.

jews have enough problems, without having a tradition of being gay.

the more they screw up, the more G-D has them put to death, enslaved, or dispersed.

makes you wonder what in the hell, did they all do again to piss G-D off before wwii.

The Boy Scout oath that all scouts swear to ends with: "keep myself physically stong, mentally awake, and morally straight." I have no problem with gay folks, but why do they expect the Scouts to disavow the oath just to suit them? The Oath was around long before this "coming out of the closet" garbage came about. It doesn't matter how many people say its acceptable if the scriptures say it is not. Take it back to the closet where it belongs and leave the scouts alone. There will be an opportunity to bring it out of the closet in front of God at judgement day and see what He says.

Scouts are not just Christian. They allow anyone in that has a belief in a higher power. They should allow gay people just the same because we are all human. Your God supposedly loves all of us and says it is not up to us to judge. It's funny how Christians forget what their bible says whenever it suits them
