So what are they saying? As a youth, you are a fine, upstanding citizen, you can learn all the values of the scouts, but when you turn 18, you are not worthy of the good name of the scouts? Good lesson.

It would be far more accurate to, by implication, tell str8 Scouts that they will grow up to be rapists of women that to tell gay Scouts they will grow up to be sexual predators.

Which is why the Mormon and RCC contaminated Scouts will do the precise opposite.

No they are keeping gay men away from young boys which is only common sense.

Gay men want gay men, not boys. Does this say that you think straight men should be kept away from activities with underage girls? No men basketball coaches for girls teams, etc? That would provide a lot of new jobs for women.

So a gay eagle scout can't become a troupe leader?

Common sense to the uneducated.

The BSA is run by heterosexuals only; no gays allowed
.
So obviously all the child molesters in the BSA are heterosexual pedophiles guarding their turf
.
By keeping gays out; the BSA can't use gays for fall guys.....and neither can you

The U.K. and Canada have gay scouts that are adults and children and I've never heard of any molestation happening because of it. Are they implying that American gay men are somehow more prone to molest than gay men from other countries?

I'm glad that the innocent children may soon be free of anti-gay discrimination but still consider it wrong that scout leaders may still be banned based on sexual orientation. I don't think the issue is going to stop here nor do I believe that businesses that have stopped donating to the scouts based on their anti-gay stance will resume donating again just because the scouts may now have partial equality. Businesses who have stopped donating or will stop donating are not going to compromise on partial, but only full equality. Homosexuals and child molesters are not the same thing. The Boy Scouts of the U.K. and Boy Scouts of Canada allows gay scouts and scout leaders. I think that it is ridiculous that the Boy Scouts of America are implying that gay men, especially gay American men, are somehow more likely to molest children than heterosexual men from here and abroad. The molester or rapist is motivated by having power over their victims, it's not about sex or sexual attraction; the gender of their victim is usually irrelevant to them. Statistics say that most pedophiles identify themselves as heterosexual (straight) men and most of their victims are female. If a gay boy grows up in the scouts I think it would be terrible for him to be kicked out at 18 unlike his straight counterparts. There have been gays and bisexuals in the scouts and military for years. I think people are overreacting to it all. Just because someone is gay doesn't mean they are going to be putting the moves on everyone just because they are of the same sex. Straight men don't go around feeling on every woman they see. Gay men like other gay (not straight) MEN, NOT little boys. If they are going to say that all gays are pedophiles then why wouldn't that apply to all straight men being around little girls or who are fathers to little girls? Should straight men not be able to be a school teacher or coach to little girls because they are a heterosexual man? What about den mothers (who are straight women)? Should they not be able to be den mothers to boy scouts because these women are sexually attracted to the male gender?

You prove, once again, that common sense is not all that common. If you had any interest in truth, you would realize that child molestation has nothing to do with sexual orientation. However, you have no interest in truth, you only want to throw bombs into a discussion.

My question to you and all like you, why do you continue to come to a place to associate with all the gay people? If you find us so repugnant, why do you choose to put yourself amongst us?

It was written by homophobic men, not God. They apparently have a phobia of eating shellfish too which they also say is an abomination to the Lord.

They decided to ignore that one, too greedy to ignore the tasty shrimp buffet at The Sizzler, I guess. They have tossed most of Leviticus, but the anti gay one they cling to like they cling to a bag of Cheetos on long lonely night in front of the TeeVee.
