Relax, nothing has changed. Gay youth have always been in the Boy Scouts. Why is everyone all up in arms?

It is you pew warming KKKristians who have rewritten Scripture and refuse to obey it.

The fact that you refuse to sell your computer and give the money to the poor proves that you hate your God and the mule it road in here on.

The Bible makes this quite clear:
•(a) "...none of you can be my disciple unless he gives up everything he has" (Luke 14:33);
•(b) "If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor and you will have riches in heaven" (Matt. 19:21);
•(c) "Sell your possessions and give alms" (Luke 12:33);
•(d) "But give what is in your cups and plates to the poor, and everything will be clean for you" (Luke 11:41);
•(e) "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt,.... But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.... for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matt. 6:19-21);
•(f) "How hardly shall they that have riches enter to the kingdom of God" (Mark 10:23);
•(g) "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19:23-24);
•(h) A certain ruler told Jesus that he had obeyed all the commandments from his youth up. But, Jesus said, "Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me" (Luke 18:22, Mark 10:21),
•and (i) Paul said, "For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as refuse, in order that I may gain Christ" (Phil. 3:8 RSV)

He can't prove his invisible friends exist. Why? Because no evidence exists. All he does is make assertions.

All his fellow pew warmers believe and accept the assertions of fellow pew warming bigots and they expect gay people who are at least 100 time more intelligent than the average pew warmer to do the same. Intelligent people do not believe the assertions of others with out some reason like proof and evidence to support the assertions.

All the pew warmers have is hear say and warm fuzzy feelings.

I know I know!!! If you crawl into a tent with an openly gay boy everyone will call you a fagg, but if the gay boy is hiding his sexuality then you get to crawl in and "play" all night long and no one is the wiser.

These are heterosexual rules gay people need to learn.

It was his way of trying to bring us to Jesus.

JESUS: Luke 19:27, "But
those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.'"

JESUS: Luke 14:26, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and
children, his brothers and sisters yes, even his own life he cannot be my disciple."

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
All homophobia comes from the Bible. We are all surrounded by it and it has permeated all of us. Even gay people suffer from it. You do not see where your homophobia comes from and although you may not be actively warming pews you still suffer from having grown up around pew warming bigots, we all suffer from it.

You were not born homophobic you learned it. It is not you it is something that became apart of you later in life after you were born and the good news is you can free yourself of this unnatural hate.

And since you hate people getting in your face so much why are you here getting in gay people's faces?

God made everyone...gay, straight, black, white, etc. if you are a so-called "Christian" you would recognize that God loves EVERYONE! Get over it...being gay doesn't have anything to do with learning survival skills, trying knots. Geesh

If you believe that then you must also believe Eve was shacking up with her own sons!

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.
I don't recall Jesus ever saying "I've come to die for your sins...well, except for gays, whom I don't love."

Is this article about boy scouts marrying each other? Somehow I missed that part.

Also, I don't find the Boy Scouts of America mentioned in my bible. Please cite chapter and verse.

SIN is what God hates.....

1 Timothy 1:9-11

9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,

10 **********for the sexually immoral, for those ~practicing homosexuality,~ for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine**********

The ACT is what God doesn't like and won't accept....

SIN is an ACT committed BY the individual.....

....PRACTICING homosexuality is an ACT committed BY the individual....

Does God accept this ACT???

NO!!!!!!!!!!

WHY??????????

It is CONTRARY to the sound doctrine....it is AGAINST the teachings of God....

Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to Our likeness."

Jesus Christ is our co-creator who is the exact image of God.

Hebrews 1:3

3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Does this sound like God/Jesus is gay???

There is no room for pew-warmers in the Lord’s Church.

God’s desire is not that His children be eliminated from the rosters, but rather that they mature and fulfill the responsibilities God has laid out for them.
