Gays are liberal. The more kids they recruit through sexual molestation the more Democrats. It is patently obvious why Obama is pro homosexual rape.

You the one who don't understand the difference.
Actually Canon, I want to compliment you. I believe you are sincere in your beliefs, which is not something I would say to many who claim to be guided by the Bible.
However, I must ask you to recognize that there are many who do not share your point of view, and who do not regard the Bible as a source of truth or wisdom. Nor do they regard the Bible as the word of God.
What I ask is that you have the humility to accept the fact that, as human beings, neither of us is all-knowing. That would include your respecting the views of those who see life differently, but who are nevertheless as caring and well-meaning as yourself.

You are setting up a straw-man. Allowing child molesters to join the boy scouts is equally wrong whether you believe in a god or not.

Why should athiests see it any differently than Calvinists?

Of course not sure why the queers volunteered their sexual perversions anyway. "Don't ask, don"t tell" works just fine.

You assume too much, ricardo. Many Christians and atheists do not share your bigotry.

I am quite sure all the gay people who want to join the scouts would also want to bar child molesters from joining...

Either you accept fringe sexual orientations or not. If you let in gays then the camel's nose is inside the tent and all alternate lifestyles are...

From pedohilia to necrophilia... anything goes.

Boy Scouts of America is a PRIVATE business...thus meaning it survives from troop members paying dues and profits made from fund raising product sales. WHO buys these goodies?? Anyone that wishes to.
AND some of these folks are GAY! They WERE born THAT way..it wasn't THEIR Choice!!! To discriminate is a statement of disapproval to an innocent person. Ya know I cannot believe, What we have accomplished in the scientific and technical fields AND we STILL are in the Stone Age thinking...You are different from me, so you must be my enemy.
UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Even his revisionist history is wrong. While some like to give the rupublicans credit for passing the civil rights act, the votes tell the story:

Senate: Dems 46, Repubs 27
House: Dems 153, Repubs 136

This is like some folks I've seen trying to say the repubs are responsible for repeal of DADT.
