    Default Boy Scouts of America affirm ban on gay members and volunteers

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012...merica-ban-gay

    Well, now there's two reasons why I think Boy Scouts of America is a terrible organization.

    (The other being that atheists/secular kids can't join)

    If there is some psychological disorder where a particular individual finds people of the same sex attractive it is more likely there might be something else wrong with them. I see how parents would not feel very comfortable with this.

    On the other hand people are terrified of gay people because they do not really understand them. Most of them are just like everyone else with a little exception of what they do in their bedrooms (which of course is none of our business). I have met a couple of gay people and most of them are pretty decent individuals.

    +1 to BSoA for taking a stand.

    GTFO Heathen gaylords.

    err.. arent the Boy Scouts a private organization with a somewhat judeo-christian slant?

    So.. while I may disagree with their attitudes about homosexuality.. they have every right to ban something that contradicts their core values.

    Id rather live in a country where they have the freedom to ban this than one where they couldnt.. even if I dont agree with it.

    What I find odd is that if they were banning Wiccans.. this thread wouldnt even exist

    ^^

    Or, if Wiccans were banning Christians, it would be celebrated.

    Poor oppressed Christians.

    BTW why would Wiccans be banning Christians and more importantly why would a Christian join something that is Wiccan?

    Well for the past 1.5 years, in and out of the hospital hah. Been having some post operative abdominal issues, including the surgeons leaving a towel in me for 4 months (lawsuit ensuing). All sorts of fun shit. In between that, just working, living the American dream.

    There was a Shadowbane thread on here not too long ago and I've been stuck here since, there's nowhere else with a really active forum so I've been getting my trolling fix here.

    How you doin?

    A private organization which receives financial support from the government.

    A private orgnaization should be allowed to do what ever they like, however a private organization which everyone who pays taxes is forced to support shouldnt.

    Unless you were that guy, it's hard to know if he was alone on vent. Poor you.

    What's being gay got to do with taking care of kids?

    So if I like penis, I'm considered a pedo all of a sudden?

    I love forumfalls logic on this.

    Good job!
