    But they can have water balloon fights as long as the balloons are no larger than a ping pong ball.

    Water gun fights are out, but you can shoot at targets.

    Both water balloon and water gun activities require wearing of eye protection.

    Wait until ISIS learns of the sissy boys American is raising now.

    Why should we care what ISIS thinks?

    Well let’s actually think about it.
    Your 13 year old daughter is in the Girl Scouts, she and 15 of her friends are going on an overnight camping trip, would you be comfortable with 4 men being the only Scoutmasters on the trip?
    Be honest to yourself……
    It’s easy to say “Yeah gays should be Scoutmasters”, but when it’s your son sleeping by himself in the same tent as that gay guy for a few nights, most responsible parents wouldn’t let that happen.
    Its the same thing. Sorry.
    Now let the fake “gay acceptance”, “you’re a homophobe” comments come in…….

    You’re confusing gay with pedophila. Most gay people would never attempt to do such a thing. However, most pedophiles are self-proclaimed straight, white men.

    So please, be honest with *your*self.

    @(un)WISEORATOR:
    You didn’t address CG’s question. Most straight men aren’t pedophiles either. Would you or would you not be comfortable with adult men being the scoutmasters to 15 13 year old girls on overnight camping trips? There’s no wrong answer, so be honest. If you say you’d have no problem with it, so be it. But I’m sure a lot of mothers wouldn’t be as comfortable. In fact, I’m pretty sure a heck of a lot of mothers would answer the question with “That ain’t happening in my lifetime.” Are you going to reassure them by saying “tut, tut, most adult males aren’t pedophiles”? And what if they really don’t give a dam about your reassurances? Are you just going to call those mothers “HATERS” like (un)WISEORATOR and storm off?

    This is yet another example of why you can’t have a dialogue with a liberal. Someone asks a perfectly reasonable question, but instead of answering it, they answer the question that they wanted to be asked. Then they call you a name and they think the conversation is over.

    As CG’s question was not legitimate, Nobody needs to answer it. It is not legitimate as the GIRL scouts would not allow that situation anyway, as they are GIRL scouts and would not have only men lead such overnight expiditions anyway! And the ONLY situation where a scout master would sleep in a tent with only one boy scout would be if that boy was the son of that scout master. Those are the rules as I remember them when I and my sister were boy and girl scouts, and I see no reason why those rules should change, or be challenged by anyone, gay or not!


    So, CG’s point was not legitimate anyway, whether or not is was homophobic or not. IF and when CG ever learns to debate from any position other that an extreme ultra conervative one, perhaps he will learn to phrase his questions in a manner in which they could be legitimately answered, even if disagreed with!!

    As Churchill said: You Libs avoid the actual issue.
    I didn’t ask some outrageous question. Funny when you libs can’t answer, you just deflect.
    I just asked would you as a caring parent be comfortable with your 13 year old daughter and her girlfriends going on an overnight Girl Scout camping trip and sleeping with a group of only MEN Scoutmasters.
    I’m betting 90 percent of mothers and fathers would say Hell No!
    Now, would you want your 13 year old son and his friends to spend the night with a homosexual man in a motel room(or tent, cabin)? If you say yes, please give your kid up for adoption.
    Sorry Becca, this time you are Wrong!
    WiseBabble: You’re always wrong.

    Actually, I ignore pretty much anything that’s directed at “you libs” or “you people”.

    I was about to comment that the proposal got a solid round of applause and that only a minority of really backwards, uninformed boneheaded sexually-repressed jackasses oppose this move.
    .
    But, yes, it’s more convincing to “show” and not “tell.”

    what this writer and most of the people commenting is that they’ve been gays in scouts for yrs. no one bothered them and they didn’t bother you. they were there to help the boys wit their merit badges. trust me from former scout master whose 4 sons were in scouts and 2-grandsons that are Eagles
