    By all means pick a politically correct single issue to portray the Boy Scouts as a bigoted, immoral organization because of it..

    Because gay boys are not girls.

    Forget the Boy Scouts and support Campfire USA. They have an all inclusive policy. Has anybody heard of any “sex-capades” in the Campfire organization?

    Hate comes easy to that age if that is your leadership.

    It’s Margaret Thatcher style individualist conservatives who don’t even believe in community. The left by and large believes in community, and they want a social system and a government that recognizes the importance of community. The Good Doctor and I disagree here, I suspect — I think that the whole point of socialism is community. (Then again, I’m an anarchist socialist, not a centralizing socialist.)

    “what is the difference between a women as a boy scout leader and a gay man?”
    You did not notice your wife has no penis?
    I have difficulty with the validity of the comparison.

    I was in Boy Scouts until I got the boot for refusing to take an elective religious studies merit badge. Not required for Eagle Scout or anything. I was there from 5 to 14.
    Also, I don’t see a difference between having a straight female or gay male member if you’re concerned about pedophiles (which are almost always straight men).

    You my brother, are one man among many. Stand up and make your voice heard. Still the hate from both sides and talk with logic and reason (you do a passably good job of it).

    But even you (as do I) display bigotry and prejudice on occasion.

    I fully believe we all individually love family, support community and have faith in mankind.

    As to the opposition to socialism, well it ain’t All BAD.

    Come on Kylie, what is “straight” about a pedophile?

    So do I assume that you encourage heterosexuals under the age of 18 to engage in sex? As you say, “How to discourage the behavior, but not the orientation?” No one is encouraging the orientation, anyway — acceptance is the word, not encouragement. Young people who are gay usually know about it, just as young people who are heterosexual know about it, long before they actually engage in the behavior. Well, they can hold hands and kiss.

    Whole thing’s been funny for a long time as the British founder of the whole “scout movement” was a “gay blade”.

    Why don’t they have separate drinking fountains too?

    Because it is wrong to discriminate. It is wrong for some people to have rights denied to others.

    Okay, the boy scouts don’t allow girls, so I guess by your standard there’s no encouragement of heterosexual activity there. What about a church groups with both boys and girls? What about the high school prom? If that isn’t encouraging heterosexuality, then I don’t know what is. Would you let your son take a girl to the dance, would you let your daughter go to the dance with a boy? I guess you’re encouraging sex then. How do you discourage the behavior, but not the orientation? I haven’t called you a bigot, don’t call me one.

    My hunch is that gay teenagers have about as much sex as straight teenagers. Maybe less, for various reasons. I was a teenager in the 1960s, when kids weren’t supposed to have sex before marriage, and gosh there was a lot of fooling around. It’s naive to think kids aren’t going to have sex. Here in Ontario same-sex marriage is legal, so same-sex dating can lead to same-sex marriage just as straight dating can lead to straight marriage. (But not because somebody wasn’t careful and got pregnant.) If two kids meet in the boy scouts and fall in love, I think that’s great, and I wish them all the best.
