Tee hee

Those pesky Great White Egotists at Fox News are acting up again
.
As of today; Gays have only been in the scouts for One Month and 12 days
.
Nowhere close to the year Fox News implies

I suspect that it has far more to do with the scandals that have been reported.

IF it were true that's one 6 percent the Boy Scouts of America ( or any other organization ) does not need ; they shouldn't want the brain-washed offspring of bigots in their midst .

I'm sure it's dropped more than 6 percent. What parent in their right mind would allow their son(s) to remain in the BSA with homosexuals?

I yanked my boys out of there a couple of years ago as soon as I heard they were going gay. We're in the Rangers now - a much better organization that doesn't let perverts in.

You have no kids, Bradley1. Another epic fail.

Yes, Bradley. We already know more than we want about you and your rump rangers.

I'd want to know how much membership has dropped each year for the past decade before concluding anything either way.

I suspect it's been a trend only slightly accelerated by the bigot Boy Scouts renouncing part of their bigotries.

No one cares what you want to know. The only thing that's relevant here is the fact that homosexuality ruins everything normal and decent.
Look , your little love life was neither normal or decent. Just because you got jilted, don't blame it on the fact he left you for a man. Take some responsibility for your own failed life and stop blaming it on gays!

For some very interesting reading on the BSA, here is a very comprehensive site. Especially the parts on the scandals.

She's so angry. I applaud her husband having the courage to leave. There probably is a restraining order out!

I see the peanut gallery can't resist commenting on an article it didn't take the time to read.

You know, that's the problem with his ilk. They come on Topix and read a headline, and then, with no idea of the subject matter, they start posting their "ideas" as if they were creating a bumper sticker. No thought to the intricacies of the subject matter. They believe the whole world can be reduced to a single simple sentence. Not even a compound sentence, for crying out loud.

It has nothing to do with whether they can read an article or wish to reduce the world to a single sentence. That avoids the obvious matter of their intent.

They come on here to defame by any means they can, because they are in the grip of an unrecognized sexual malady they suffer from. In addition to their reprobate politics, of course.

Well, yeah, there is that for some (or most).

When you start having Queer Scouts coming in, you can understand where the decent normal people are going.
The founder of Scouting was gay.

There have always been gay scouts.

I knew who he was, but I was unaware that he was gay.
