The Boy Scouts of America is considering lifting its ban on gay Scouts and troop leaders, but to what extent the decision would have an impact in Indiana is unclear.

If everyone is so afraid of the gay life style which in my opinion is being led by activists,; what about the other kids at school, Parks,parties,etc.that introduce alcohol,drugs,and multiple sex partners to your kids? How about the ones who brag about disregarding authority?
This is the 21st century.You can't put your kid in a bubble.instead educate them and most importantly, listen to what they have to say.

There is no "gay lifestyle" any more than there is a "heterosexual lifestyle."

No, they are not, because the Girl Scouts is a female organization. However, I would assume that lesbians are allowed to be troop leaders. Just because someone is gay or lesbian does not automatically mean that they will be sexually attracted to all same sex people. Assuming you're a heterosexual woman, would you have a hard time controlling yourself if you had to lead a group of mixed sex couples or of young boys and men?
Although they exist, female sex offenders are very rare. Males have a much stronger sex-drive. They are more apt to seek and initiate sex, and are even MORE inclined to do so when it's taboo or illegal. The mix of testosterone with same sex attraction...fuel.

in public health, "lifestyle" generally means a pattern of individual practices and personal behavior. A manner of living that reflects the persons values and attitudes.

We can't keep our kids in a bubble, but we don't need to push them into bad situations.

Exactly, with emphasis on the word "individual." There is no homosexual lifestyle; each person has his own particular lifestyle. Some homosexuals are lawyers, others are contractors, dentists, artists, housewives, etc. They don't all share the same lifestyle simply because they are homosexual, any more than heterosexuals share the same lifestyle. This is the point I'm trying to make.

Homosexual, heterosexual, it really don't matter.
It's the freaks that take either of the two, and twists it into a perversion, it's these we need to worry about, how do we pick them out of the crowd?

There's sexual predators everywhere, no doubt. But currently, in the scouts, there's a provision in place that at least attempts to curb the possibility of male-male molestation within the organization. Just because there's a trickle of some who LIE about their sexual orientation doesn't mean we should open the flood gates. Testosterone, teenage boys, and same sex attraction is asking for trouble.

For real? Obviously never been to a pride festival. Denying something doesn't make it untrue.

Do you judge all heterosexuals by what you see at Mardi Gras on at Spring Break "Girls Gone Wild" parties?

Mental illness certainly exists in all walks of life but I wouldn't say it "runs rabid." I wouldn't even say in runs rampant.

Just how many homosexuals do you think will come "flooding" in if BSA lifts its ban on gays?

Kids are impressionable. That's it. People need to consider who is impressing what onto their kids. And whether the message is tolerable or acceptable. And what will happen when the openly gay scout finds himself bullied or harassed simply because he was placed into a potentially precarious position? I know. The lawsuits will pour down like rain. Children will be hurt, adults will be criminalized, and a long standing organization founded upon morality and values will be ground down to something valueless. Simply to make a statement. This will be a bad decision, but I guess it has and will continue to gain the media attention. That is after all what it really is all about.

Those people aren't "activists" representing "my" cause.

You're off the beam. If a man or woman is truly straight they are not into children. Your classroom prof may tell you that this theory is true but he's fooling himself and you.
Here's what you're missing. The claim to be straight is a facade, a cover, a ruse, a gimmick.
Shame on you for sneering when you can't readily convert someone with your cockamamie nonsense.
Dear, when an adult becomes a pedophile, they aren't acting according to their natural sexual orientation, but according to their illness. Even when a heterosexual man molests a little girl, he's not doing so because he is heterosexual by nature, but because he is off the beam and that little girl is the direction his sickness has taken him. The absurd notion that someone has to be in some way, shape or form actually same sex attracted to actually engage in same sex sexual acts is why so-called "homosexual pedophiles" get away with it. You are off looking for homosexuals, when it is your fellow heterosexuals sneaking off with the little boys and believe you me, they thank you for your blind eye. Look into the Jerry Sandusky case, the reason that he got away with it for so long is that he was such a role model for heterosexuality, of course nobody thought he could do such a thing, even when they saw it for themselves.

I don't know...but I feel if they believe it will prove some kind of point, they'll do it just because they can and would probably have them march in their parades.
