Leave The Boy Scouts Alone

March 29, 2013

To The Reader’s Forum: “Boy Scouts Of America At A Crossroads” reads more like an op-ed than a legitimate article because its advocacy for gay scouting is so apparent....

So your factoids WERE made up. Keep hitting your slippery slope argument (incest, polygamy) and somebody might actually fall for it.

Look at some sites other than gay ones. You might actually learn something. Puberty is moving and if you can be "normal" so can 12 yr old consent. And incest. and polygamy. etc....

So 50s argument is that I am bigoted because I don't accept his bigotry. Nice try Norm Jr.

50's, please tell us where you got the inside scoop that the age of consent is soon to be lowered to pouberty(sic) and that PUBERTY will soon be 10 years old. More of your made-up factoids?

Now 50's wants us to start worrying about all of those homosexual serial killers that live among us. One more "reason" he wants us to fear gays. Shall I list dozens of examples of heterosexual serial killers?

The experts claim pouberty is coming earlier than ever before. Early as 10. If mother nature made them that way, how can we have laws against it? That's the basis for your argument.

Pedophilia is a disorder the exact neurological origin is unknown at this time. It will soon be recognized as the same as sociopaths, homosexual urges, and addictions. Then you wil have to stop quoting the professionals because they will have outed you.

Pedophilia is adult urges for a pre-pubescent, pubescent, or even post-pubescent children. That runs from below 11 to age of legal consent of 16. At Puberty a girl can not only have natural urges and have children as well as an abortion, but soon the age will be dropped from 16 to puberty for consent. Boys included. that wil make NAMBLA happy. And yes any person engaging in same sex relations is by definition in an act of HOMOSEXUALITY. Got it? Gacy, Dahmer, etc. Homosexual serial killers.

50s, pedophilia will be illegal no matter what. Nice try at a straw man argument. Who exactly is Emelye bigoted against? Bigots? That reminds me of one of Norman Carlson's arguments, "You are intolerant because you don't tolerate my intolerance". You are saying the same thing.

Em what will you do when the scientific community agrees pedophiles are "born that way"? And the disconnect is pretty much the same.. Admit your ignorance? Your bigotry?

PhD1960, thanks for your ridiculous straw man. How delightfully you managed to knock him down while casting aspersions upon my character! As if pedophiles were exactly the same thing as LGBT people! Of course you have to pull ludicrous associations like that out of thin air since you have no real argument.

I am disappointed that your "PhD" seems to have worn off and that your thinking has calcified to the point where you can't make any rational arguments at all.

gee, I'm so annoyed that my modem went awry a week ago yesterday and that I missed such a compelling and enlightening conversation.

Well, maybe not.

oldlady, you really did contradict yourself there but I guessing the thrust of your barely coherent argument is that you might just admit that sexual orientation isn't a choice but if it's an orientation that you disapprove of it should be politically oppressed? Or that if you don;t like it the people who have such orientations should remain unloved and celibate? That people who make you feel icky shouldn't have the same rights as you do?

That really seems quite unkind to me.

Gays, addicts and the "mentally challenged" have no chance for a job or a normal life, 50s? That is one of the silliest things you have ever posted. Have you ever read a newspaper, watched TV or stepped outside in the past 40 years?

Being "born that way" has consequences. Like being born an addict, or mentally challenged. They have no chance of a job, or having a life like most of us. Laws are made to protect them, but not to bring them up to equal outcomes in the name of social justice.

Apr 3, 2:51PM Once again Loner declares "I don't care" yet he keeps on posting about the subject. He sure does obsess about things he doesn't care about.

Loner's new juvenile insults for today are "Nazi" and "liberal neo-Nazi". Perhaps someone should try to explain to him that nazi's are extreme RIGHT-wingers, not liberals. If you try to explain it use small words for him.
