    I though they were supposed to love the sinner...
    Yes but they are banning an orginization that is accepting of the sin and that cannot stand. If it was a member they could be excommuincated.

    It's still the Boy Scouts.

    Do those churches ask every single person who steps on to their property what their sexual orientation is?
    The issue is not whether a scout is gay or not is that the orginization now says that homosexual behavior is ok, not a sin.

    Why don't you put up a sign on your church's front door that reads "No Adulterers Allowed" and see what that does to Sunday Mass attendance.
    I'm fairly sure if a orginization had as a policy promoting adultry then they would be banned too.

    So he calls the very boys he's banning innocent, and bans them anyway.

    You can't make this **** up.
    It is a burden to tell the org leader as well as its members that they can no longer be associated with the church just as if a member who is stuborn in his sin would be excommunicated.

    Heh, heh. But really, there's [always] been a range of opinion in Christianity on how to deal with non-repentant sin. Some churches are at the Old Testament end of the range and others are toward the let them come to Christ on their own terms end of the range.

    Hilarious. As if the church itself would have a single soul in it if sin and sinners were banned?

    Honestly, the inability of the right to admit religious hypocrisy is stunning in its blindness.

    The first time I gave you the benefit of the doubt. Please employ spell check.

    Yes, being a hypocrical bigot has its pain.

    Thanks for clarifying that you are just like Greg.

    That isn't the point.

    For me, this underscores why giving all churches tax exemptions pisses me off to no end.

    What IS the point? And why would churches being tax exempt piss you off? They by and large are non-profit orgs and to exercise the right of religious afiliation they have to meet somewhere and having it at a dedicated building is more convinent to the members as well to the general public.

    They'd be a poor example of what you think is the Christian faith. My church is welcoming to gays, we have an asst. pastor who is gay, and our Boy Scout troop openly went against the BSA's ban.
