I don't think the "christian" leaders of the BSA are even a little bit concerned about the two issues the author of this article brings up (shunning sinners or sexual molestation).

I think their REAL problem is with allowing gay people to be in a position where they might gain the respect of the Scouts and the Scouts might learn that gay people are no different than anyone else. They want gay people to be objects of fear and disdain.

Allowing the Scouts to learn that gay people aren't evil, horrible, scary monsters is a WAY bigger concern for them then those other things.

I was in the Boy scouts and that was the LONGEST 4 years that seemed like 40. Obviously, none of these cranks WAS in Boy Scouts for they don't know how it works.

I got news for you, there WERE gay kids in the scouts even way back then. As for gay adults...there are always at LEAST 2 or 3 adults along on camp outs. Our favorite haters seem to think that once it is accepted, then out of control gay leaders will be knee deep in boys, absolutely no supervision of anyone else. The adults are usually 99 times out of 100 one of the kids' parent anyway.

there ARE gay teachers, really how many molestations do we hear about? A couple a year? Those are blown way out of proportion, ignoring the many many thousands of gay and lesbian educators who do NOTHING to their students, except teach.

There are many many HETERO molestations of opposite sex kids by adults and our haters seem to have absolutely NO problem with that, for they never mention it, or care.

They allow Gay adult leaders in the UK, where Scouting started. There are no issues and no problems. To not allow them would be discrimination. All Leaders both Gay or Straight are vetted to ensure they are not paedophiles.

I'm sure that there were molestations in the Scouts long before this issue came up. What about all those priests that stand accused of that kind of thing. Are you going to do away with ALL priests?

This is just another way to persecute the GLBT community, started by homophobes who want to spew their venom on others. They know that nothing gets a point across better that good ol-fashioned FEAR!

Notice they seem to think that all GLBT persons are also child molesters. THIS IS NOT TRUE!

I hope that gay persons are allowed to lead the Scouts someday; it's totally unfair to them to discriminate against them for something they aren't able to help and didn't choose for themselves.

If there was no money involved this would be of no issue. Then some idiot, probably a jew, came up with the idea of two men and a baby.
That's a fairly cynical view! It' s true that there are important responsibilites to consider.

If you have to ask that question you're insane.

Anyone with any decency or common sense would never let gay men anywhere near boys.

The Boy Scouts of America are all about citizenship, good character, self-reliance, etc. I was in cub scouts, boy scouts and explorer scouts and in all those years, nobody ever mentioned sexual orientation: it is just not part of the program.
They are not a place for fags to meet young boys.
Anybody who declares any type of sexual preference is only looking for a way to ass-rape young boys. Keep these sick pedophiles out of scouting.
There were probably some boys who would later turn homo, but we were too busy having fun with the program as it was. They were not an issue because they stayed with the program and did not make an issue of their orientation. Any guy who "looked down" while the others were taking a shower probably would have had his butt kicked. He also would not be welcome in any scouting activity by the other boys.
I had a job in a food service company where two guys were flaming homos and one homo who acted normal. I was good friends with the normal acting one. I only found out he was gay because we were at a party and he was the only person not on the dance floor. He later told me that he was gay and he did not want to make an issue of it, he also found "fairy boys" an embarrassment to homosexuals who just wanted to lead a normal type life.

I'm so tired of the phrase "active homosexual". You never hear of anyone saying, "I'm an active heterosexual".

Just what would an "inactive" homosexual or heterosexual be; your basic couch potato?

How would you "activate" an "inactive" homosexual or heterosexual? Is there a secret code that you need to have? Is it on the internet?

In any case, I'm glad the Mormons who run the BSA are starting to consider the idea that gay boys are safe to have around their children. Maybe in time they will figure out that gay Scouts who become Eagle Scouts would actually make good Scout leaders, just like their fellow straight Eagle scouts.

Those "good character" lessons, did they include becoming a sexually obsessed, ill-informed twit, or did you do that on your own? With advertisements like you, the Boy Scouts might as well roll up their pup tents and call it quits. Keeping gays out of scouts isn't protecting kids from abuse, their extensive pervert files are testimony to that. It's not filled with gay men who somehow snuck in, but straight ones who welcomed at the front door. The gay folk who want to volunteer are former scouts who want to give back to the program and parents, who want to get involved for their kids.

Why would ANYONE want to waste time on a car bumper when there is plenty of fine DICK to go around? You guys think that accusing gay men of making love to consenting adult men is insulting somehow. That is like me making fun of you for liking VAGGGH!

And, tool the joke is that one can suck the chrome off a TRAILER HITCH, not a bumper.

"I bet no one in that restaurant could wash dishes as well as you can."
You are absolutely correct, Curteese. I was also excellent in mopping floors. I was quickly promoted to cashier. After college I got a job in an R&D Lab designing and building transponders and interdigital transducers for communication satellites.

"Rick in Kansas" I would hardly call myself sexually obsessed. I just find anybody who leers at young boys, hoping to ass-rape them as disgusting. Anybody who is gay and wants to give back to the program is welcome. The moment you declare that you are gay is the moment you have let everybody know that you have completely forgotten about the Scout Oath about being "Morally Straight" and let everybody know that your ulterior motive is to someday be alone and ass-rape a young boy. In all my years of scouting, I have never witnessed any child abuse, not to say that it has never happened. When child sexual abuse happens, the perpetrator is turned over to the police to pay his price to society.

RE: Biggest Lie: I was wondering who removed the chrome off the bumper of my '67 pickup, now I know! Curteese must have come back to suck off the chrome from my trailer hitch as well.

Oh, I'm so offended. You accuse me of having gay sex. Hey, I'll give it back. Why don't you go screw your wife! so there!

Now, welcome to my world.
