If a private not for profit organization like the BSA is allowed to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation - which isn't their choice by the way - who's to say organizations like the WCA, United Way or even better: The Resource Center cannot discriminate based on a person's sexual preference? Sorry but these organizations shouldn't be allowed to discriminate against anyone. Wasn't it JESUS who said "He who hasn't sinned cast the first stone"?

Tell us the truth monkey. Approximate how many times you've hit that report abuse button. Inquiring minds want to know. And you are noone to talk about rudeness.

geez-riderr-looks likes somebody takes offense at "shrill" being in the same sentence as "gay". and bubba kills another one. Hey bubba! Feeling powerful and intelligent yet? Is that a fetish you people have? Or were you just born button pushers and can't help yourself?

It's so easy being a wussy left winger. Just call a couple names,and you think you have won. No thinking required. Or pout and push the button....again. Brainwashed.

What the he-- do yu know about the civil rights movement? Something you watched on the history channel in february? Sjhow mewhere I am wrong. I believe in absolute equality. I don't go with your racist affirmative action, adding points, lowering standards to satisfy ethnic wants. Prove me wrong about whites being the primary player that made this country civilized and liveable. And give evidence any other could have. The mere FACT that you support special considerations for races makes you the racist. And fools.

And yet he complains endlessly about being called "racist" but makes racist statements again and again. As we know from the civil rights movement, racists don't operate based on logical thinking, they operate on hate.

"There is so much wrong with tht $100,000 education, I don't know where to start. Let's do tis one....we will not be a minority in fifty years unless we allow illegal Hispanics to run our immigration policy and immigration laws. Like all other wing nuts,you are counting white and non-white. We will still be the dominant race. and then you have the thing about if we're gone, who will run the store? A country doesn't run on ball teams, music, drugs, and chilis. "

Wow. I'll bet there are people on this forum who think this isn't racist at all. Sad.

"No federal law or psychobabble will ever change my mind about you and your causes. "

Do you realize that statements like that define bigotry?

"Why can't a group set certain standards?"

Well, you can certainly set standards but then don;t complain if funders withdraw their contributions if they don't agree with them. The BSA is looking at losing large donors, donors whose right it is to withhold money from organizations that have policies they don't like.

It's already been established that the BSA can set its own standards. What they can't do is set standards that violate nondiscrimination policies and laws while still receiving public and private funds from donors who disagree.

"The organizations have a creed that includes God. As evidenced on these forums, so many homosexuals are vehemently opposed to that, how can they be included?"

I'd like to see that evidence. I must have missed it.

"Well, they can't have girls in the boy scouts...what's the difference? Do you really believe every organization should be open to both (all)sexes?" Ridiculous straw man argument. Nobody is talking about girls in the boy scouts.

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise; Saying that “gay rights are human rights,’’ Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate, has endorsed same-sex marriage.

“I believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being,’’ Mrs. Clinton said in a video posted Monday on the Internet by the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights advocacy group. Her announcement comes as the Supreme Court is about to hear two landmark gay rights cases that advocates hope will make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. Mrs. Clinton’s announcement represents a switch in position; as a presidential candidate in 2008, she explicitly opposed same-sex marriage, saying that she favored civil unions but that decisions about the legality of marriage should be left to the states.

Forgot. You can't use the race of MLK here. Has to be the new rendition of non-existent race called black.

Boy Scouts = Christian Organization = attack by liberals

X = Christian Organization = attack by liberals.

Nothing new here.

Matthew 5:11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Matthew 10:34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

Loan, you can have your definition, which is fine. Regarding spelling, sorry that we don't have spell check on here and I don't take the time to correct every little spelling error. I guess my 100 grand education failed me! Until another time, Peace Out!

....to find jobs to pay for school. But because "education is the proper thing to do", I will have 3 more degreed people in my family.

Dog, come to a working plan and I will discuss with a clear plan. Keep bashing everything and all you will do is continue to hurt our society and country!
