    It's a pretty hot topic and they have lots of ties within the conservative and religious community, at least from my local experiance. But it was pretty obvious that current views towards homosexuality were changing pretty rapidly and if they didn't act soon, they were going to find themselves on the wrong side of history. So I really don't see a way to navigate those circumstances without causing some trouble

    again trouble is subjective is my point

    if im in charge of i see no trouble nor would i care, thats what im getting at

    it is possible that people in charge view it as trouble but again its just subjective

    So can girls. I don't understand why they don't merge girl scouts with boy scouts. Why should gay boys be the only ones to get access to each other on those lonely campout nights?

    Because it's better comedy when Larry David slams the door on a girl scout fundraiser. That's definitely worth keeping them separate. /s

    Because 'getting access to each other' is not what this is supposed to accomplish, as anyone with a brain could understand.

    Wouldn't it have been funnier to slam the door on a boy scout and girl scout holding hands?

    But 'getting access to each other' is exactly what is going to happen, as anyone with a brain should understand. As a liberal, you should be arguing the condoms for scouts angle, anyways. Or is that a little premature at this point?

    Re: Boy Scouts vote to welcome gay members

    I believe I previously stated this but I will say it again:

    The BSA are just alienating troops/packs with their position here considering 70% of their packs are organized through the church.

    We're now fractured in politics and that isn't enough for progressives - now we must be fractured in independent programs for children via political correctness.

    Also, in what universe does sexuality have ABSOLUTELY anything to do with being a boyscout?

    It has nothing to do with sexuality - yet this is an issue?

    It seems the PC "gay rights" crowed is obsessed ****ING REALLY OBSESSED with sexualizing everything and everything.

    Fine BSA will lose 70% of its troop membership..

    Thanks for alienating yourselves gays - yet again.

    Really? What basis do you have for this claim? Sure, I think we might have a case or two, bust just how often do you think this is going to happen?

    As a liberal, you should be arguing the condoms for scouts angle, anyways.
    It's cute when conservatives pretend to know what I believe.

    Or is that a little premature at this point?
    There are a few things premature at this point.
