If they do it only proves that they DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE SCOUTS.

They care more about their public appearance.

Christ forgave sins. They should Do what Jesus would Do.

Even though I am sickened that the BSA has chosen to keep the stereotype that all gay men are pedophiles, I don't think that is the message the Baptist should endorse.

One of the best men I ever knew is a Baptist. He was my boss. I think he'd object to this as well. He has a son who is blind who is in the Scouts.

I still have concerns that the scouts are going to try to do conversion. seems that once a gay becomes 18 there out where hedro's can continue, and this no gay leaders, could it be that they will blow the whistle that the BSA is conducting conversion therapy through peer pressure

That's why the churches need to be banned from scouting

Religious homophobia is mental illness; and they will drive the Boy Scouts crazy

Anyone with any morals or decency would drop their association with the Boy Scouts now that they allow homosexual perverts. Obviously the BSA doesn't care about the well-being of boys anymore.

They may drop the scouts because they care more about the kids than having scouts.

This is outstanding news. I read another article this morning that stated that many welcoming churches are going to ensure that the kicked out scouts have a place to meet. This may drastically reduce the number of children exposed to Baptist poison.

No they don't. If they can't have it THEIR way, they are grabbing their ball and running home. SO,they want boys to be kept from being scouts and fend for themselves, running the streets, joining gangs, and so on. VERY moral. I guess Jesus gave up easily also to prove a point. Didn't He?

So if the Baptists can't teach the kids to be bigots, they don't want any part of it.

Why don't all these "many welcoming churches" already sponsor troops?

Typical gay comment, charging others of what they themselves are guilty of doing all the time.

Most of them do. Now they're ensuring these boys have a place to continue scouting (without the influence of the Baptist. Again, outstanding news :)

Romans 1 "reprobate mind"
Titus 3

King James Version (KJV)

3
"1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,....

That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain."

If they wish to put bigotry before being non judgmental, forgiving, loving and accepting, that is their right. Of course, it paints them as anything but Christian.

"Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake." Luke 6:22

Looks like the Baptists are hypocrites. Who knew.

You should definitely ask for a reprobate or replacement. Your mind is not working up to expectations.
