No...Lockheed Martin sees that just because someone is homosexual doesn't mean they are unfit to lead.

They also reject the stupid and unsupported assertion that all gay men are paedophiles on which the Boy Scouts' rule appears to be based.

Says the guy from the UK where being gay is widely accepted and same sex marriage is legal.

Gay in the UK is practically a non-issue because of it's acceptance.

Explain something please.

Gays have been and still are barred from being leaders in the Scouts. Since no gays are allowed, it must be hetyerosexual pedophiles raping all these boys.

Ohh and your obsession with men raping little boys in tents out in the wilderness speaks volumes about your sexual fantasies.

You're correct, it's almost as bad over here as it is in the US of Gay. They need to change the name from United Kingdom to United Queendom.

The UK is still effectively more pro glbt than the US on most issues, including "federal" benefits for same sex partners (whether 20% of the US states have marriage equality or not.)

So you're confused you stupid pos.

Not sure you really live there if you think the UK is ALMOST as good as the US. The UK is FAR more progressive on LGBT issues than the US.

In the UK discrimination protections and anti-harassment protections are already in place. Gay marriage in legal and benefits are extended across the board to LGBT couples.

Seems to me you, like Ivan - another troll on here, should more somewhere more in line with your views..like Russia...or Angola.
