    Sticking a condom on a merit badge sash is a new low. Is there anything the dogs of the GOP won’t slur in their pandering?

    The badge for justice is a nice touch.

    As if straights shouldn’t wear condoms too?
    The interesting thing is that the KIDS have been asking for this for years. They understand better than the adults (80% of young adults are for gay marriage too). They don’t demonize people just for being different.

    I’m glad for the change and have been lobbying for it from within the organization. This cartoon confuses me a little, however. I like the scales of justice over the heart of the Scout. But what message does he want to send with the condom merit badge?

    I think they are telling scouts that their beloved scout master might be a closeted homosexual and to have a condom available at all times.
    SICK
    I wonder how many scout masters have been charged with sex crimes against their scouts.

    I wholeheartedly agree! Scouts in their later teens should always be prepared to play it safe.

    “They don’t demonize people just for being different.”

    Some do because that’s what they were taught.

    I’m a scoutmaster and I’m happy to see this change take place. Not because it’s an issue for our troop but because it was painting the Boy scouts as a group of bigots that confuse homosexuality with pedophilia. Hopefully we can put this behind us now.

    Unfortunately it will lead to a splintering of the Boy scouts as the Morman Church, the Baptist Church and maybe even the Catholic Church follow through on their threat to create their own competing organizations that can and will discriminate against adults and youths that are not entirely heterosexual.

    I’ve been listening to podcasts and radio programs that are finding the most intolerant representatives of the anti-gay movement and their is a lot of talk from religious groups about removing their support for the Boy scouts which will then force those boys that were getting support from those churches into even more intolerant organizations.

    I stand by my first sentence. The Boy Scouts did the right thing. Now we can only hope that many of the hot heads that disagree with the BSA position will do the right thing as well.
    Otherwise the BSA will lose it’s ability to have a positive influence on boys and young men.

    Are you implying that gay men prey on boys? Are you equating pedophilia with homosexuality? Because if you are, you have just shown massive ignorance on this issue.

    If you’re looking for adventure
    of a new and diff’rent kind
    And you come across a Girl Scout
    who is similarly inclined,
    Don’t be nervous, don’t be flustered,
    don’t be scared!
    Be Prepared!

    @brent

    It’s the equation the religious right has been pushing for about 500 years now, and I don’t expect it to change any time soon. Demonize and destroy whatever makes you uncomfortable, because God knows, the comfort of a conservative is worth any number of destroyed human lives.
