In Christianity, your sins will be forgiven only if you make a sincere attempt at living a moral life and make a sincere apology for your sinful ways.
Some local gays and atheists (i.e., Dave Rice et al.) tried to make a boy scout type organization that promoted homosexuality and atheism. The organization was called "Scouting for All". It Failed! Nyuk, Nyuk!
Then there really was no reason for Jesus to sacrifice himself. If sin is only forgiven by works then God's Grace means nothing.

Before you make such clueless claims maybe you should study the writings of your Lord and Savior Paul of Tarsus a little more thoroughly. There are many passages where he explains that we are not saved by works but by faith and grace.

There is nothing wrong with a gay scout leader, I agree. Boy Scouts do not ostracize or hate (read the Scout Laws or the Scout Oath for proof of this). However, once a scout of leader openly declares his sexual orientation, he is obviously looking to ass-rape a young boy. On all of my scouting activities, in the city, camping outdoors or backpacking the Sierra Crest, we never discussed any type of sexual orientation. Anybody who even tried to start a discussion concerning sexuality was immediately told to seek the counsel of his parents or church leaders. Sexual agendas or any type are not, nor were they ever a part of the scout program. The scout oath says that you are "morally straight". If you do not aspire to become morally straight, do not join the boy scouts. Simple.
I would never join a gay organization and whine all the time on how they should all become straight. It would be a waste of my time.
Wow. You say when a gay man announces to a group he's gay that he is essentially telling people he's ready to rape a young boys butt.

Does the same logic apply to a Den Mother when she introduces her husband to the group? Obviously she is announcing to these pure and innocent boys she wants to play "Mrs. Robinson" in "THE GRADUATE". And lord knows WHAT Mr. Den Mother wants to do with these boys!

Kiddo, one thing we have all noticed about you.

Every time a story comes online about GAY MEN you immediately start thinking of raping young boys.

You need help before you hurt someone and get arrested.

Um, "Scots".

I used to know a Scottish guy who was gay and, oh, what a MAN he was. Big, brawny, manly, ginger hair. He did NOT wear underpants under his kilt. Thanks for bringing up such a nice memory!

I just read an article on line about a woman in North Carolina, 21 years old, who left her trailer unattended and her FOUR children, ages 4 years to 6 month old twins, burned to death.

According to our favorite haters, ALL moms are letting their kids burn to death,since you know, if one does it, all do.

You've met far more gay people than that. You simply did not know it.

I fully agree with you. By that kind of logic, one bad apple DOES spoil the whole basket full. I know that kind of sentiment is really prevalent when it comes to the police. One bad cop and the whole precinct gets a black eye. Unfair, but true.

People who hate an entire group because of the actions of a few really should get their head examined. America has gotten so used to hating Muslims because of the actions of the Taliban they forget that most Muslims are very peaceful people and condemn the actions of those who were responsible for what happened on 9-11-01 (which I still believe there were those within the American government involved). I'd better not say any more or I may disappear as there are those within the government that are just as paranoid as the haters we run across here.

If you join your local dog club, you do not discuss you pet cat because nobody wants to hear it, they want to talk about dogs. If you go prancing into your local dog club meeting telling everybody you are so gay, so gay. they will tell you to STFU unless you want to talk about dogs.

Same with scouting. When you go to a scout meeting, you stay with the program. If the program of the night is how to start a fire without matches or butane lighters, you do prance around saying "I am so gay, I am so gay". You are off topic.

The boy scout oath requires you to be morally straight. If you want to behave immorally, join a gay man-to-boy sex club.

If you do not believe in the boy scout program, leave them the F**k alone.

And Cletus, cub scouts are about 9 or 10, far too young to even realize if they are gay or not.
You trying to paint me as a redneck hillbilly is pretty funny. I'm far more educated and cultured than you'll ever be, and you're obviously not very smart since you completely failed to understand the logical argument of my post.

As for facts: They don't allow girls to be Boy Scouts. Not talking about "den mothers." And do please enlighten us all when the exact age is that gay men "realize if they are gay or not". What a maroon!

It took me a few readings to figure out your post. From what you said earlier and this one first let me say I'm sorry you were molested. But blame the people who molested you and no one else, OK?

Secondly, if the gay men you are meeting all end up having their names in the local paper I suggest all of you stop frequenting that local tea room. AndE69 you yourself should know better than to be hanging around in places like that in the first place after what you've been through. I've heard that some abuse victims grow up to be abusers as well. I hope that doesn't apply here.

I meant to call Curteese on that age thing as well. I know many people who came out late in life, but many said they "suspected they might be different" from when they were children (i.e. before puberty). Personally I knew I was "one of those" when my best friend told me that when he grew up he wanted to marry me. I was 5 he was 4.

Any time someone has to include his 'resume' of intelligence, I wonder WHY he must try to convince us all, or himself, so vigorously.

There are female boy scout leaders. Sorry to upset you.

I don't know about you, but when I was 10 I had NO idea what sex even was. I knew mom and dad slept together and made babies, but I had no idea how, or what sex was all about. I guess you were far more precocious than I was. Too bad you had no childhood.
