Seadog, did you even read the letter? It's not about kids telling each other about their sexuality, it's about the Boy Scouts wanting money from local governments and corporations who have non-discrimination policies. They do not have to give their money to groups that violate their non-discrimination policies.

You don't need to ask me about why gays don't want to hide who they are. Just examine the reasons why you keep posting over and over that "I LIKE WOMEN" and "I AM HETEROSEXUAL". Did anybody ask?

Oh, you wanna kill me because you see that as the simplest way to solve your pesky problem that I don't agree with you? That should go in the "You Must Be A Conservative" letter.

I'd rather boil the real problem. That should be a cure.

for somebody just barely out of the trees, you seem to have a high opinion of yourself. Just becauae you label it,doesn't make it so. You still haven't found any proof have you. That must be frustrating for someone like you. Can't you at least come up with peanut butter or something?

50s4ever, you can shout from the rooftops that you are "normal" but that doesn't make it so. It is not pride in being white that makes you a racist, it is your dislike of anyone who is not. You can say you are not homophobic but your posts prove otherwise. You can continue to have my posts deleted but that doesn't change who you are.

So now you think there is a "gay germ" that causes it? You better boil your water!

With the number of people claiming to be gay, I no longer believe they were "born that way". There would have to be something seriously defective about the air or water in the USA. We'd be like England.

I'm normal. I don't have a phobia. Except arachniphobia .Not a heterophobe, not a theophobe. Not a racist unless you think a white person has no right to proud of their race, and calls them the way he sees them. Come out of the closet into the light and get your bratty finger off the button. Then you can join intelligent conversations.

Poor monkeyboy. Talk about sex all you want. Don't talk about sex. The point I was making is if you are gay and don't want to be EXCLUDED from an organization or group, what's wrong with not broadcasting your sexuality? I have asked before and will ask again. I do not go around telling people I LIKE WOMEN, I do not go around telling people, I'M A HETROSEXUAL. So why is it, gays feel they HAVE TO TELL everyone who will listen, THEY ARE GAY? Maybe you could tell us why?

Seadog, if you think teenagers don't talk about sex you have never met one!

"And as a 'good' parent..how would you handle this"?

I would explain to my child that there are some people that do not accept his sexuality and to make things easier on him/her, keep their sexuality to themselves. Which I believe MOST kids in the BSA do now. I haven't heard of many scouts going around telling anyone that would listen they are hetrosexual - so why is it that gays feel the need to tell everyone?

If you aren't gay fan18 why do you insist on making the same comments on every letter regardless of topic?

Jtown, my guess would be that they would use electro therapy to shock the gay out of their kid. Or perhaps send them to military school.

Homophobia is not attractive.

But again, I ask those of you who claim not to 'care' what homosexuals do, then why are you here on this thread so often?

A coherent explanation would be nice [although unlikely]...

thanks..

Is there a "regulation" that prevents an eagle scout, a gay eagle scout from receiving an award that is earned? Is it "bullying" to support that gay eagle scout, by those "activists?" Just curious.

Again, I agree with 50s! If a group takes government funding, then they must comply with government regulations. That's my basic problem with the BSA on this issue--they want the money, but don't want to comply.

"The federal government made it way too painful for any dorporation [sic] to NOT have the policies in place to please the lobbyists from LGBT activists."

This is completely untrue. Why should I read the rest of your post when you start with a fallacy right at the beginning?

It's still legal under federal and about 30 state laws to fire someone, to deny them service in public accommodations and to deny them housing simply because of their sexual orientation. Large corporations have added sexual orientation to their nondiscrimination policies because it's good business. You really need to get your facts straight if you want people to take you seriously.

"The only problem is, it is not immoral to be "black," "Christian," "Jewish" or "blind". It is immoral to be gay."

But it was! Everyone of these group has been persecuted based on moral grounds. We just don't believe it now. For Christians and Jews, just look at history (and not that far back). For black people, I clearly remember hearing as a child (in church, in Jamestown!) that quite a few people believe that black skin in the Biblical mark of Cain, so there is no need for equal treatment. For blind people, a handicap was a clear marker of sin for centuries. Do we believe that now? No. Did people believe it as vigorously as people at talking about gays being immoral now? Yes!

The federal government made it way too painful for any dorporation to NOT have the policies in place to please the lobbyists from LGBT activists. The BSA is showing a great deal of courage standing up for their values. They should not take any fed funding, just like everybody else that doesn't want to be pushed by the fed's. Once you take their 30 pieces of silver they own you. Bill clinton proved that with making us tied to Mexican invasion by severing fed funds to anyone who didn't go along.

"The only problem is, it is not immoral to be "black," "Christian," "Jewish" or "blind". It is immoral to be gay."

You assume, quite incorrectly, that being gay is as easy to change as one's religion or favorite food. Since your assumption is patently incorrect it follows that your entire statement is false.

If the BSA wants to discriminate, they can do so. The Supreme Court said so. They cannot, however, expect donors to keep giving them money when BSA policies so significantly conflict with donor policies.

Yet another Christian promoting the "poor me, I'm a victim of those mean gays." It would be laughably pathetic if this kind of thing didn't cause as much harm as it does.

Pastor Short engages in a common tactic of the religious right wing in that he blames this huge, immensely powerful but nebulous "gay lobby" for bullying those poor Boy Scouts of America. Never mind that the people who are asking the BSA to reconsider their exclusionary and prejudicial policy are not gay organizations but large corporations whose internal nondiscrimination policies include sexual orientation. They just feel - as is their right, of course - that donors shouldn't give money to groups that violate their policies. Pastor Short ignores this fact, apparently because to acknowledge that would deflate his false martyrdom at the hands of the evil LGBTs.
