Boy Scouts To Consider Changing Anti-Gay Policy At Least A Little

Jan 28, 2013 | Posted by: Sei | Full story: lezgetreal.com

The change in the Boy Scouts of America policy regarding gays in the BSA could come as soon as next week. According to BSA spokesman Deron Smith “The policy change under discussion would allow the religious, civic or educational organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting to determine how to address the issue.”

Forcing people to hide and keep secrets is far more dangerous than letting them be themselves. An authentic, openly gay man or woman has no desire to abuse children, but will also know everyone will be watching to make sure that is the case.

Many Scout troops are supported by churches that don't approve of homosexuality. I suspect if the BSA makes this change, they will lose the support of many churches and be forced to find other sponsors.

My church kicked the Boy Scouts out of our meeting building, and ended all support of the BSA, about 20 years specifically BECAUSE they discriminated against LGBT people.

I think you didn't read the proposed policy change, which will permit those troops dominated by the religious bigots to go on being bigots. Which is just as unconstitutional as things are now...so long as the bigot Boy Scouts receive government monies or accommodations of one kind or another.

The RCC and the Mormons as a whole have too much invested to walk away.

If they localize the decision on this matter, the BSA can duck a world of lawsuits.

Perhaps, in light of recent revelations and their current problems, someone might suggest this to them.

Or, perhaps their attorneys already have.

That's what the proposal is. To leave the decision up to each individual troop.

You have major sexual problems is all, until you start demanding that no one reveal their heterosexual sexual orientation in all of these contexts.

You're a mentally ill, outlying freeek. Trash.

That IS their choice
Hey sick freak, following the Supreme Court's Dale decision the bigot Boy Scouts only get to discriminate if they're a private organization.

That means no government funding or involvement or accommodations of any kind.

This goes for agnostics and atheists, too, who would fall under existing laws barring any form of discrimination on the basis of religion. Or lack thereof.

You talibangelical filth and disordered closet case.

You either are a male or a female entering this world and your life experiences for better or worse defines who you are and the CHOICES that you make are of FREE WILL.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND!!!!!!!!!

After all gays are personally responsible for spreading hiv/aids into the heterosexual population.
Thank you.
11yr old boys are "physically and morally corrupt" ?

Advertizing proves you wrong. Sexuality sells all these things to an otherwise apathetic population.

That public "apathy", or lack of opposition, is what homosexuals misinterpret as support.
