Scouts face pressure before vote on no-gays policy

Feb 7, 2013 Full story: CBS 3 Springfield 33

It promises to be a campaign as passionate and dramatic as any big election. For the next 14 weeks, the Boy Scouts of America will be the focus of prayers, petitions and pressure tactics aimed at swaying a vote on whether to ease its ban on gays as Scouts or adult leaders.

Do you have some proof that a gay person can't be an effective parent simply because they are gay?
I mean, if there are a few well adjusted happy and healthy kids out there with gay parents, wouldn't that crush your odd theory?
I've given you a story time and again you moron! The lesbian pair in SF! REMEMBER???

Gays should just open a open Gay scouts. Leave strait folks alone. hmmm... Maybe I should cry and force myself to become a girls scout's leader? Yes! Hey are you discriminating me just because I'm male and I want to be with your little girls? NO! That's how stupid the Gays sound like. I already excepted Gays. Now quit being a pain in the A**

Sweetie, you are educating yourself to be stupid, again. What Freud actually said was, "Sexual morality-as society, in its most extreme, the American, defines it-seems to me very contemptible, I advocate an incomparably freer sexual life."

Notice the subtle differences between my actual quote and your right wing creative writing version of it?

No thank you, the existing program will be sufficient. Get rid of its official irrational bigoties, problem solved.

Well, this is the first time that we have heard that we are somehow annoying folk who live on a narrow, typically navigable waterway that connects two larger, navigable bodies of water. We'll have to make it up to them somehow, but we're still not sure how we are bothering them.

Guess what sweetie? The Girl Scouts have always allowed adult male volunteers, they don't discriminate. But just like any other adult volunteer, don't expect to ever be left alone with one of your little charges. Adults overseeing the Girl Scouts have to be in twos, one of whom will be female.

No dear, that is how stupid you sound. The Boy Scout's current policy promotes nothing more than seriously ugly bigotry and seriously ugly stereotypes that very few gay men actually live down to, but as evidenced by their vast pervert files, apparently a place where a hell of a lot of openly heterosexual men are willing to go to.
JohnnyO wrote:

I think you were hoping to say accepted, but given what you have said thus far, excepted works better. You apparently think your stated urge to prey on young girls is something that happens to all gay folk, except for us it is young boys. Nope. Just because you have the urge to act out sexually with inappropriately aged young girls, does not mean that your little problem is shared by many, if any of us.

I was referring to the preposterous idea of ss parenting. NOT just gay parenting but ss parenting. Good luck. Jerk.
Oh, so you were departing from the topic entirely to further prove your bigotry? How big of you. Do try to stay on topic.

No Lides, because it is that argument and that topic alone that one day will knock the dominoes down the halls of injustice on gay anything. It's an argument for children's 'basic' human rights that even you, Justice Lides, dare not raise in court, newsprint, television etc.
You subversion, sterilization, and decadence of America is wearing thin, very very thin.
Enjoy the snow.

How cute, you learned to change your town name. But you are still a troll with no point.

You have no argument, you are simply a bigot, and not a very bright one regardless of the name you choose to post under.

Thanks for playing Lides, I knew I could count on you. How unusual for you to hunt me down last night, so cute and so uncharacteristic of you. Enjoy that compelling state interest for ss parenting buddy.
You lose!

You do realize that your regular name changes only serve to undermine any credibility you might have right?

Do try to stick to the topic, which is the scouts allowing gay members and scout masters. If you were any smarter, you would realize that your argument have no bearing upon the topic at hand. Why is it, LBA, that those like yourself and Wondering have such difficulty staying on topic? Must be adult A.D.D. Or perhaps just A.D.D.?

Some of those kids you mention are gay. Some of them become scouts, follow all the rules, and grow into wonderful young men who happen to be gay, but do the scouts proud. Why do you hate them so?

Um, I believe I was talking about 'straight' ss parenting.
Not one person can refute it and Jutice Lides has absolutely no response to it. When you get an 'off topic' cry baby remark from one of Massachusetts' leftest of left Joseph Mengele loving socialists it is a fine fine day indeed.

You were, I pointed out that is off topic. Do try to keep up. Either that, or carry on with your off topic drivel and prove how weak minded you really are. The choice is yours.
