Pulse of Canada: Should gay boys be allowed to be boy scouts?

There are 29 comments on the ca.news.yahoo.com story from Mar 2, 2013, titled Pulse of Canada: Should gay boys be allowed to be boy scouts?. In it, ca.news.yahoo.com reports that:

Each Friday, Yahoo! Canada News asks Canadians where they stand on the important issues of the day, and our panel of experts tackles the same question.

In the U.S., gays are not allowed to become Boy Scouts. There’s no such rule in Canada. Do you have issues with gay boys being boy scouts?

Editor's note: they asked 9 random Canadians on the street, and every one of them thought Boy Scouts should allow gay members.

If that's your take on the aftermath of children getting molested, you're one sorry piece of garbage. I think Jake is right, the only kind of person that would think like that is someone that has or does molest children. Makes it easier to believe there's no long term effect, doesn't it queer? You my friend, are a worthless POS.

Agreed.

Yet as both polls and votes demonstrate, there are reasonable people who can overcome the irrational prejudice they were taught as children when provided with the information that exposes their prejudice as harmful and irrational. While some will never change, many others are capable of doing so. Not all prejudice is based on hate. Some is a result of false information, and some from simple lack of understanding those who appear in some way different from ourselves.

"Prejudice, we are beginning to understand, rises not from malice or hostile animus alone. It may result as well from insensitivity caused by simple want of careful, rational reflection or from some instinctive mechanism to guard against people who appear to be different in some respects from ourselves." (Golinski)

Unless your brats are OVER 45, they have NO chance of attracting me. I think you said you have girls. They would be BEYOND safe with ME,and if I accidentally saw them undressed someone would run screaming from the room. Me.

I would not touch any child, but if I had kids, I would put be perfectly content to let opposite sex adults who were gay or lesbian be in charge of the opposite sex kids. No worries at all.

They were consenting ADULTS, Cletus. Come up with a REAL argument, or shut your pie hole.
