The country has never needed the Boy Scouts. But as long as they exist, they shouldn't discriminate against gays & athiests.

Sounds like questions queer National Socialists would ask... if they can't have access to those boys, then force them all to become Episcopalians, where they've insured they can.

If there were "hundreds" of former Eagle Scouts returning their medals and now more than a thousand sexual assaults revealed, just who in hell do you suppose were making those sexual assaults, except homosexuals invading the Boy Scouts about the same way they invaded the Catholic Church?

Disband the BSA! Boy Scouts build confidence, team work, and integrity in Young Men.

Effeminate Boys, and poorly parented Boys, are far more likely to Vote for Obama and his crowd when they reach majority.

That is the entire reason the BSA is being demonized. Period.

Witch Hunts worked very well in the Third Reich too.

I was a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout. I don't think anybody should suppor them in any way whatsover unless and until they change their discriminatory policy of excluding gay boys.

If they fold because of that, then let em fold.

There's no such thing as a "gay boy" until some homosexual gets their hands on them. That's a falsehood pandered by homosexuals because they are interested in sexualizing children.

Yes, we still need the Boy Scouts, the Cub Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the Brownie Scouts, college sports, and Catholic schools and churches.

What we don't need is discrimination in any form against any groups of people in any institutions or organizations, and much harsher laws and punishments aimed at any individuals of all sexual orientations and genders who molest children and/or rape adults.

Is that how little girls become straight, by being molested by their fathers, brothers, or uncles?

Don't be ignorant.I didn't know a single gay man until I was an adult and I was gay long before adulthood. There is no need for spreading lies because it makes you feel better about your discrimination. The BSA is most definitely wrong for their discrimination even if it is technically legal. They would is smarter than that and is moving in the right direction. The fact that that this discussion is even takin place is proof that te BSA has fallen behind and will in time realize they are wrong just like they did with their racial segregation policies. I just wish the BSA could take their own teachings to heart and be leaders an not followers like before.

Slick attempt at a cover, but easily exposed. Homosexuality is a social illness, which by its very nature of mental infirmity is inclined to collusion and conspiracy as pairs, or groups. That increases its negative impact on society and identifies it as basically unAmerican at its core. You can argue this inclination to collusion in assaults on society (Catholic Church, Boy Scouts) is due to discrimination they suffered prior to recent release from illegal stigma, but it being directed originally in the 50s by their "queens" is undeniable. A much more powerful argument can be made to recriminalize homosexual behavior, because of how it continues to interact with society and the falsehoods it continues to pander. By nature, you must maintain your separate identity and activities, yet insist on being interwoven with society as something else (normal.) This identifies the homosexual mind as mentally deficient in the same ways as the criminal mind, or the psychotic mind.

The recent revelations of homosexuals in the Boy Scouts molesting boys (to destroy the organization) in the same timeframe homosexuals were molesting boys in the Catholic Church (to destroy the organization) is a much more significant issue. It shows the secretive and remarkably disproportionate influence of homosexuals in contrast to their public claims. It also shows the similarity between homosexual thought patterns and criminal thought patterns.

Did you know that gays wish to point out that most pedophilia is between a man and a young girl. They even go as far to call it 'straight' pedophilia when actually there is no such thing. Any male having intercourse with an adolescent male or female is far from straight. Any sexual intercourse outside of a relationship between a man and a woman is deviant, degrading, defaming, unhealthy, unnatural, and morally unsound.

The BLTG deviants stereotyped and isolated themselves into a conundrum that is finally being exposed. Any man buttsexing a boy who has a female companion is not 'straight' but a closet bisexual with tendencies for young children. Thank the perverted liberals for all this folks but at least the yolk is finally being separated from the white.

You expose the nature of your mindset: that children are sexual beings. Only homosexuals and their likewise perverted pedophile brothers like Kinsey would make such an assertion.

I agree with ya.....the Boy Scouts teach boys some great skills, but just because they allowed Pedophiles into their ranks, because they didn't do a background check is no reason to deny Gays and Lesbians from being Leaders.

And denying a boy the right to be involved with Boy Scouts because of his religious preference is also wrong!!

The Boy Scouts are hurting themselves by their discriminatory policies......not only in memberships, but in all other areas as well, especially public funding!!!

The Boy Scouts are still needed, it's their anti-gay paranoia that isn't. Yeah, the baby has been sitting in some pretty foul bathwater for way too long, there's still no cause to be tossing the baby.

Satan has sent homosexual pedophiles into the BSA in an attempt to destroy it from within, just like he did with the RCC. Not being successfull, he now attempts to discredit and destroy the BSA from the outside. That is Satan's "Scorched Earth Policy": anything that he cannot penetrate, he will attempt to destroy.
Do you need any further proof of a homosexual agenda? Homosexuality is the perfect conduit for Satan to work his deadly machinations.

This is a TOTAL LIE.......if the Boy Scouts had been doing background checks on their leaders, they would have known about these Child Molesters before hand.......and the fact that they hid them or moved them instead of prosecuting them, is their own damn fault.

There is NO HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA.......there is however a huge amount of denial from idiots like yourself who don't want to see that Pedophilia and Child Molestation HAVE NOTHING to do with ones's sexual orientation!!!
