"hint of gayness?" Oh, you mean the same excuse used by a christian to shoot a toddler. Yeah, that's smart. So you'd rather share the tent with someone who might be gay, might not be, you not knowing at all what to expect ... when the lights go out. That's even more intelligent! Yeah, you geniuses are too stupid to learn anything.
light go out?
do you mean like when they did and the gay kicked the little puppy?

yes, but if any hint of gayness came up, the kid was banned....right?
so the rule is, share a tent, just don't act gay, right?
seems fine to me...
Tell your kids to stop "acting" straight then.

Wow, let's see, you use "the gay" again, betraying that you are indeed a bigot. Then you equate a puppy's life to that of a human child, you are a scumbag as well. The trifecta will be completed if you are also a christian.

<quoted text>Better yet, have you seen the commercial where a hot looking woman is on a chaise lounge with a Kindle reader? The hot guy next to her has the old school type and they begin a soft flirt, till she throws in: "my husband is bringing me a drink!" He responds, "oh, so is mine!" and they cut to two handsome men at a bar who both wave. I never thought I would see such a commercial.
I'm surprised that no one has gone into vapor lock and begun a boycott. BUT, Kindles are for reading and that leaves about 999,999,998 of the Million Moms.
Yeah, I had to think, "did he really say that"? It ended so quickly, I had to wait to see it a second time.

Specific? I don't hate anyone who is not a scumbag that thinks human life is less important than a dog's life. However, people with god delusions of any sort should receive medical help for those delusions. But hey, that's a completely different topic, you can find plenty on other threads talking about that.

more like a lawsuit when the gay kid gets a black eye for trying and then makes his bold claim that it was a hate crime since he was called gay when he got hit...

in short, the suggestion that a gay kid end up hooking up with a straight kid is just silly...

how about we let the group decide what it stands for and not you since you are excluded?
They already publicly declared what they stand for - bigotry.

It's not like they were keeping it a big secret.

Btw, my gay nephew was a scout, so he was included whether they wanted him to be or not.

Equal rights is everyone's business. The fact that you fail to see the danger your opinions pose is because you're too narrow minded. Perhaps next, after they decide to discriminate against gay people, they'll choose your christian church and make it illegal for you to follow it. Or perhaps they'll decide everyone who's families are from the original colonists should be placed into camps. Maybe they'll say everyone with your hair color is poisonous to the species and eliminate you all. The possibilities are endless. Without equality for all, you open the gate for discrimination for any reason those in power see fit.

Nope, everyone knew my nephew was gay; it's a small town. Like many local troops, they ignored the rules and allowed him to be in the scouts because they knew it wasn't fair that he would be the only boy in his class not in the scouts.

There is simply no reason to have a gay only softball team or a black only softball team or a jewish only softball team.

Self segregation is how stereotypes and prejudice continues. I prefer diversity, which is why I don't join all-gay or all-white or all-german or all-lefthanded organizations. I guess that comes from being in the military where I experienced multiple cultures every day.
