For what you say to make sense, please prove that god exists. Otherwise your statement means nothing

Yeah, it does suck to be a bigot during an Age of Reason, you're so going to hate what happens when this age gets more steam.

I'm glad you did what you did. Any decent organization wouldn't want you part of it anyway.

Now - how about the sons of bi-racial parents?

There are no doubt more people ashamed of YOU than you are of THEM, you ignorant bigot!! Why don't you find a time machine and go back to the Dark Ages? I'm ashamed you were ever a scout!

YOU are merely self-righteous! Now why don't you target the Girl Scouts in case some of them use birth control in the future?

Which scripture? The Hindu scripture? Buddhist? Jain? Taoist?

Believe whatever religion you like but remember this: in a democracy like the United States, no one religion gets to presume to rule all. And since the Boy Scouts are explicitly non-denominational it is supremely arrogant for you to insist your particular religious system should be given special treatment.

Write to the National office and ask to be removed. The rolls will be much better without you.

If they'd actually read any of their beloved Bible (and had the brain capacity to understand what they'd read) they'd know how contradictory it was. They wouldn't have to read too far into the book to find problems either. For instance, there's that contradiction right in Genesis chapters 1 and 2 about what order God created things in -- one chapter says animals came first, then Adam, the other chapter says Adam came first and then the animals were created so Adam wouldn't be lonely.

All this arguing would never have existed if Adam and Eve had been homosexual, in fact the human race wouldn't have existed.

The argument wouldn't exist if people threw out superstition and embraced reality.

I am non-religious, so agree entirely. I am also homophobic. Both of these standpoints are entirely my free choice, and I am happy to share the planet with others of different persuasions, just so long as they don't get in my face with their gods and their gay propaganda.8635
