    Oh please. That's precisely the gist of your comments. How delicious the irony that you wouldn't have the stones to admit it?

    Except the congregation members, of course.

    The church is and that is the point. And yes the church discriminates against sin.

    He would likely have had to run this with the church elders first for a policy decision.

    If this Baptist church interprets through its faith that it's just fine to discriminate against people based upon sexual discrimination/gay rights discrimination or anything else? They are poor examples of the Christian faith, in my opinion.
    If they believe homosexuality in thought, word and deed is a sin then they would be poor expmples of Christian faith if they hosted an orginiztion that would accept homosexuality in its members as some kind of social norm.

    Why is it that people on the left love to throw out the "very Christian" bullsh*t when people of faith support the teachings of their church rather than support the secular political correctness of those who don't give a damn about Christian faith?

    As a matter of fact, what the pastor did was indeed very Christian - his faith would teach him that while he can support and love the "sinner", he should not support and love the sin. By providing a continued venue for the Boy Scouts to meet, he would be tacitly supporting their political decision - and you can see from his words the very Christian dilema that placed him in.

    There should be lots of other places where the Boy Scouts should be able to meet in Helena, Alabama - places where others don't have to compromise their faith and principles to accommodate others.

    Maybe those who are always saying Muslims are peace loving and accepting could suggest the boy scouts congregate at the local Islamic mosque in Helena - good luck with that.

    Why would they be a "predatory" male? Or are you suggesting Males in general are "Predatory?"

    So are you suggesting that a guy should sleep with one eye open if he's in the room with a female, because the female may find them sexually attractiev and thus may become a "predatory" female?

    You don't get out much,do you?
    If you behave toward gay people in real life like you do toward them here,I'm not surprised that lesbians wouldn't find you attractive.
    And not to be mean,but there may be heterosexual men who wouldn't find you or your attitude attractive.

    As a restaurant owner,I have to deal with people all the time. I've done hosting and been a maitre d' for years beside being a chef.
    Customers like it when the guy who's name is on the sign out front comes to their table,asks them how their meal was,and interacts with them.
    Makes them feel special.
    My wife was coming to my restaurant before we were even dating.
    Used to come to her table and talk with her all the time.

    There are plenty of gay waiters,chefs,and restaurant owners that are gay.
    If any of them find me attractive,it does not bother me,nor does it offend me.
    I'm a happily married man with a fantastic loving wife.
