"The Supreme Court ruled in 2000 in favour of the Boy Scouts, saying that the prohibition against openly homosexual members was part of its right as a private organisation to free association."
Fair enough. And all fair-minded people should recognise that this group posing as supporting 'wholesome virtues' places gay boy scouts in the position of putting up with second-class status and supporting a discriminatory and hypocritical group; or being divided from their friends when important (to them) activities take place and lessons are learned.
Religion is nothing but trouble these days.
There are no 'new atheists'. Non-believers like me have simply stopped being reduced to lying when trying to accommodate religious aggression and prejudices.
I agree-- the time is past, to keep placating these lunatics.

If a man claims his hair-brush tells him what to do? Everyone agrees that man is stone-cold crazy.

Why is it, when you remove the hair-brush and substitute nothing [god], that we then allow such lunacy to go unremarked?

Personally, I think gay parents may provide a more healthy environment than religious parents - especially if the religionists are very fervent, fundamentalist, or prejudiced against gays.
Good comment. Obviously being gay is one thing and being a pedophile is another. I notice that many rightwing types, and institutions, are more friendly to and protective of pedophiles than they are toward gay mature adults who care for each other. Examples the Catholic Church protecting pedophiles, and ranting against homosexuality, and the Mormon Church funding opposition to gay rights, and defending the insane Fundamentalist LDS (as being persecuted for its religion) when they were being investigated for ritual statutory rape. Also lots of folks in the GOP - though not all.

Boy Scouts still discriminate against atheists, don't they? and also against gay adults?

thank goodness it is the more open and accepting Girl Scouts who sell the good cookies!

Yes, but they are slowly coming around. The Mormons will soon go it on their own, with their own privatized brand of hate.

Perhaps they can then begin using Magic Mormon Scoutwear™.

A MormonScout? Will soon be equated with "moron" or perhaps "hatecultist".

That's what is really behind this insane attempt to put gays in scouting. It is not about equality. The goal is adult male homosexuals molesting young boys.

That is what they really want.

It looks like you are suppressing your essential gayness here.

Perhaps if you admitted you are gay, you'd feel better about it all.
