The BSA will allow gays eventually. It's not a matter of it but when.

Nothing like having a gun held to your head. Especially since the SCOTUS ruled that the BSA did NOT have to accomodate boys that MAY have given into or have fallen prey to homosexual 'tendencies'

Other than being a male:

The BSA is NOT about sexual preference
Work is NOT about your sexual preference (Unless you are in the porn industry)
Being a pilot is NOT about your sexual preference
Being a polititian is NOT about your sexual preference
Being cop is NOT about your sexual preference
Being a soldier is NOT about your sexual preference

This nation has become a most decadent disgrace and we have failed the moral structure of all families by providing special rights for what amounts to consensual vice of two human beings that cannot control their unnatural compulsive desires and tendencies.
I never thought we'd find a President that could not hold up the integrity and moral code of being a husband and President any worse than Clinton but obviously I was wrong. If your own spouse cannot trust you consistently than how can anyone else?

The Rev Bill Owens still awaits your call Mr President. Nine months and counting. Have another line of blow.

Maybe not but being GAY is still wrong, against the bible, and a abomination in Gods eyes. Its sick and discusting and anyone who is GAY needs there freaking head examined and they need to seek Gog for there is hope for them.

If you take a breath and think, you would realize that the ONLY you only feel being gay is disgusting is that the very concept stirs up unwanted things in your own mind.

That's not our fault. Gay folks don't immediately start imagining straight sex whenever we hear that someone is heterosexual.

And, no, God doesn't have a thing against gay folks--he CHOSE to make us gay, after all.

If you don't like that, you should take it up with Him.

There is no gun to anyone's head. They STILL can punish scouts who have devoted their lives to scouting, for no reason other than that poor honest scout realized that they were gay, and wasn't willing to lie about it.

After all, din't scouting teach those kids about honesty?

But, as the stories of more and more kids being abandoned by the boy scouts are publicized, after growing into young men that ANY organization should be proud of, of course there will be a backlash.

Public and financial.

Why should ANY business support any group that doesn't match it's values at such a core level?

And dude or dudete or whatever you are, you chose to be GAY. GOD did not make you GAY. GOD destroyed sodem and gamora back in the day for all that crap going on. God instituted marriage between a man and a woman. God created Adam and then made a help mate for him. She was a woman and named Eve, not a man named Steve. Your sick and you need help. God still loves you but your headed for a devils hell. I hope you realize you need to be saved and straighten up before its too late. We will all be faced with death one day, everyone of us. Where we go from there depends on if weve accepted god as our saviour or not. Il lpray for you.

"sodem and gamora" LOL. Priceless. Aren't "sodem and gamora" creatures from Japanese monsters movies from 1950s? I think you're confused. Go study your Bible.

Dude or dudette, or whatever you are, you chose to be a complete moron. The only choice you have in regards to your sexual orientation is what to do with the one the Good Lord Gave you. Whether you like it or not, God gives some of us the gift of our homosexuality.

You're right, God did not make me GAY, He gave me the gift of my homosexuality, I chose to live with that gift openly and honestly and be just as GAY as GAY gets.

Hon, just a note for future reference, if you're going to fling Bible stories about, at least have the decency to fake that you have actually read them yourself. "sodem" and "gamora", sweetie? Jesus wept child. God Himself should slap you over that.

If that is what you want to choose to believe, believe, but your problem with God, not so much our problem.

Yes dear, your less than Christlike Christian message fits on a bumper sticker. You are aware that there are many Christians who don't believe as you have chosen to, aren't you?
AC TN wrote:

You need to learn the proper usages of the word "your" and the contraction of you are (you know, you're?), you also need to learn the spellings of "Sodom" and "Gomorrah", you also need to learn that you have been seriously misinformed that we are in anyway "sick" simply because God gave us something He didn't see fit to give to you.
AC TN wrote:

And somewhere I hear an English teacher quietly sobbing. Oh sweetie, there are a lot of Christians who don't believe in the psychological issues you ascribe to God over the gift of our homosexuality. According to them, it's what we do with our gift that matters in God's eyes, not that we are doing it with the "wrong" sex. The rules which govern your behavior are the same ones which apply to us, whether you agree or not.
AC TN wrote:

I hope you realize the same thing dear, from my perspective, despite your certitude to the contrary you're still nowhere close.

Ouch, you either need to apologize to every teacher who ever tried to teach you how to use the English language or be suing them for malpractice.

If this is really the nonsense you want to stand before God with, I can only wish you luck.

Actually, her name was Havah, not Eve. Further, the concept of Hell does not occur in the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic. For instance, the 'lake of fire' is translated from the word Gehenna, which is a valley outside of Rome where trash was burnt.

It's an Idiom, not a literal statement.

People who profess a faith should at least know something about it.

ACTUALLY THE ORIGINAL EVE WAS LILITH AND WOULDNT SUBMIT TO ADAM AND SHE LEFT EDEN AND LATER BECAME A DEMON OR SOME SHIT SO GOD MADE HIM A SUBMISSIVE BITCH

The boyscouts were founded on Christian beliefs. The bible does not condone homosexuality and the consequences are hell. Christians do not believe in homosexuality. If a pastor is in favor of homosexuality, then you need to switch churches. The bible also warns of false prophets.

Sweetie, your problems and what you pray are God's problems with homosexuality are no ones problems but your own. Your version of God may not like it, but other versions of the exact same God don't happen to share the psychological problems that you have attributed to yours.

Once the homosexuals infiltrate and take over the Boy Scouts you're going to see a huge rise in AIDS cases amongst our male youth.

The homosexuals won't be satisfied until every last vestige of anything good, wholesome and decent is perverted.
