I had always supported gay rights and causes until the day they filed their first law suit against the Boy Scouts of America. Soon the gay activists were harassing the Salvation Army.

I made a 180° turn around and now am entirely against the homosexual activist agenda.

Indoctrinating young boys into the gay lifestyle is one of the main objectives of the Homosexual Agenda.
Why do you think so many young kids are "coming out" nowadays? When I was a kid there were NO gay kids, well maybe one or two. Now everywhere you look there's kids claiming that they're gay. It's ridiculous.
When you were a kid they were to frightened to come out. There has always been homosexuality, there have always been people that dress up in the o posits sex clothing. There have always been women that have pretended to be male, and married ignorant women.
The homosexual agenda... There isn't one, other than in your mind. The reason you see many coming out now is because people are free to be who they are without fear of rejection, and discrimination. Very few males,even in this free life we live pretend to be gay. Though as adult males have gone on for years about one of the biggest turn on's for them is seeing two girls together, and because of the media and movie/music industries we have so many young female teenager's pretending to be gay or Bi, just so they can be noticed by males. This is how pathetic older male business men are, encouraging our girls to be Bi, so they can make billions off them.

The great grandson of the guy that started the boy scout movement, Bayden-Powell, is going through court in Queensland Australia for murdering his wife. It seems he couldn't keep it in his pants, had an affair, and was promising his lover they'd be together.

Putting aside that whole innocent until proven guilty in the baden clay case. In think there a strong case for not allowing murderers becoming boy scout leaders. Is everyone okay with that?

What is wrong with Gay Boy Scout Leaders is sin as defined in Leviticus 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination.

Your Bible also condones slavery. Are you okay with that? Or is your Bible wrong sometimes?

The Boy Scouts is a private organization run according to their concept of morals which they seeks to promote in their membership. If they view homosexuality as wrong in the concept their moral values, then they have every right to determine who as members or leaders shall reflect their organization. Similarly, I can't belong to the Masons or the Knights of Columbus without meeting their standards of membership which they set down in their charter.
No one is debating their right to exclude gays which has already been ruled legal by SCOTUS but others do have a right to shun BSA and not donate to them due to their anti-gay views and a right to talk about how wrong the BSA are.

Okay but why do gay MEN want in?
Maybe because those gay men were once scouts and want to continue in the scouts as adult leaders.

I'm less worried about the men banned from being leaders than the Hitlers who must be running it from the top for creating the ban.

For a long time now the connotation with "straight" has been:- powerful, masculine, moral, respectful, healthy, fathers and husbands.

The reality is, you can't generalise like that. And speaking from the UK, America looks like its the last western country to catch up with that. A much higher ratio of your public are so blinded by your patriotism that you fail to sign up to the natural and life-long, ever changing learning process which is: understanding human beings.

And now those ignorants sit at the top of The Scouts fooling themselves and the parents that they "own the boys" and "know whats best for them" and that "gay people are feminine, contagious and will molest them".

And so the non-ignorant powerless few embrace ourselves yet again for another generation of pain, suppression and over-compensating, while society as a whole picks up the pieces around the boys who have now become men and seek to keep the ideology alive all over again.

Get your boys out of there.

I'm gay, it is very rare for a gay person to molest kids, on percentage gays are safer looking after kids. They will look after them like they are their own kids, as for most this will be the only kids the. will have.

Why don't we know any slaves today? Because we know that slavery is wrong. Wrong in a VERY big way.

Yet, your Bible condones slavery. It even instructs good Christians HOW they should behave as masters and how they should behave when owned as a slave.

Is your Bible wrong about those things? It's pretty clear about it, isn't it? Why don't we still own slaves? The Bible says it's okay. So why don't we?
