The Southern Baptist Convention approved a resolution Wednesday expressing its opposition to the Boy Scouts of America's new policy allowing gay Scouts, though it doesn't explicitly call for churches to drop all ties with the organization.

Of course they do, the righteous christians that they are! Now let's see them put their money where their mouths are and get the hell out of the BSA so that there's an opportunity for the Scouts to eliminate discrimination completely from their midst and welcome all those other reasonable folks who are ready to support them.

Scouts get merit badges for helping build their troop's meeting place; a rustic Boy Scout Hut in the Woods; keeping warm in the winter by huddling around a bonfire they created from rubbing two sticks together
.
They don't need to be vegetating in sanitized air-conditioned sunday school classrooms overlooking parking lots
.
yuck!

I suppose the SBs are fine as long as all gay youth are willing to lie and pretend.

"Pretend not to be gay, and you can share a tent with my son. But, if you tell anyone the truth, out you go. Our family and church can't handle the truth!"

What a lovely thing to require of any "honest and morally straight" young gay kid.

I say that pro-gay organizations start donating to take the place of the bigoted ones that will leave the Scouts behind BUT they should be clear that they will only donate half of what they would normally donate and only the full amount they set when gay scout leaders are allowed as well. It is terrible for a gay scout to have to know that they will one day be asked to leave while their straight counterparts won't. I think by that time hopefully homophobia will be a thing of the past and maybe they'll be more inclusive.

Nothing moral about the southern baptists and not much really Christian either. American taliban control freaks judging others.

Sweetie, it's not their fault that alleged adults such as yourself aren't bright enough to figure that one out. Your F*cking hateful stupidity, your choice. It's influences like you that need to be kept far, far away from children. I'm just thankful you spend your every waking hour whacking off on here, it keeps you away from actual human beings.

Obviously, the evidence of that is right here on these boards.
Look at the way these fagagandists act.
