    Good for the Scouts.

    And I eagerly await the freakishly hateful statements that will inevitably come from people like the Family Research Council.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    Good.

    But upon reading the title of the article I had the thought in my head that they let the MEMBERS vote . . . that's not what happened - but honestly - why didn't they ever bother and just leave it up to the long-term participants: the parents and scouts themselves?

    It doesn't matter - but it made me wonder.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Thanks for proving my point.....
    This is what a defeated man limping away from an argument with his tail between his legs looks like. You got called out for misrepresenting his argument and instead chose to take one line of his post out of context and scoff derisively at him.

    You know, it's funny, I've noticed that people who use "......" every other sentence tend to be pseudo-intellectual and shallow. "Oh, yeah, kid...... I've been around the block....... You know how cool I am because I take long pauses between sentences........" It's called an "ellipsis", buddy, and you use three periods... how do you get through high school without learning that?

    It's really cute how you paint yourself as this 'learned intellectual' when you admit yourself that you've submitted to being a political sheep at points in your adult life, and your thought proccess is totally illogical and self-serving. You mark any progress for LGBT youth as "sexualizing" when it's not about that-- The only ones unnecessarily harassing children about their sexuality are the people who want to exclude LGBT youth. And you honestly believe that 70% of the boy scouts will leave the organization over this, because you project your views on to the views of all Christians, which is hilarious because you seem to think all Christians are as intolerant and petty as you are.

    There is no way 70% of the organization will leave. It's still a Mormon-owned organization anyway and individual scout troops have been accepting gay members for years now. You are delusional if you think this old, hardy organization will crumble just because they don't discriminate any more.

    Because you want it to happen so you can prove some kind of a point, right?



    Gay boys already have access. This has nothing to do with making a move, it's about not having to hide who you are.



    I prefer Icing.



    Not a lot, but I was told as a Scout to be tolerant of other people's differences. There was no basis for this ban.
    1. yeah 2. uh-uh 3. sounds more like the pettiness of liberalism, to me. 4. openly gay boys didn't have access at campsites ..... until now. 5. you prefer any coating, actually.

    I bet it does.

    What? There were gay boys in the BSA before, just in the closet. If they were that desperate, you think the policy would've stopped them?

    But 'getting access to each other' is exactly what is going to happen, as anyone with a brain should understand.
    JUST LIKE most parents wouldn't allow or even think to allow them to bunk with kids of the same age and opposite sex.
    How about to sleep over with friends?
