but they've had gay scouts and leaders all along. They just went under the ideal of don't be true to yourself...pretty much the boy scout motto, isn't it?

In 2000, the Supreme Court ruled in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale that Boy Scouts, and all private organizations, have the constitutionally protected right under the First Amendment of freedom of association to set membership standards.
Obama should keep his nose out of things he isn't a party to.
When the Scouts want to drop the ban on gays, they'll do it of their own accord.
Another rightie idiot who seems to think the President doesn't have the right to voice an opinion.

The Scouts ARE going to drop the ban, at least at the national level. And good for them, too.

Dear, some of us care about injustices and discrimination that has nothing personally to do with us.

It seems to defy rational logic that gays would label the scout organization's philosophies as archaic and religiously perverted, and then want so badly to join them.

Oops, my mistake. The gays have always admired the homophobia of the Scouts. I stand corrected, thanks.

Not sure that's true, but why wouldn't young men want to join the Scouts? Scouting has many benefits involving the learning of skills, development of character, discipline, and just plain fun.

They have a few outdated rules and such, but those can easily be updated.

If America were a theocracy, you'd be right.
In addition, on the Boy Scout issue, we are talking about expanding a right, not denying a right, as in your Planned Parenthood example.

I would also point out that the majority of Christians, except for the "born again" and evangelical varieties, support the right to abortion.

Certainly you're not speaking to me, you ignorant creep. If you and I were face to face, I would show you what a "queer" I am.
Though I am "straight", I don't pat myself on the back for it. I feel much closer to gay people than I do to lowlife bigots like you.

He didn't say anything about "gays not having a problem with the Scout ban." You're lying.

You have to "born again" to be a Christian.

Alabama was a stronghold for democrats from 1868 up to, during, and after the time of Rosa Parks. Ain't that something?
The law that Rosa Parks broke, was a law made by and enforced by the democrats of Alabama. Ain't that something? Benghazi?
