    So let me see if I understand this brilliant logic. You're condemning those on the left who are condemning this idiot Greg for his intolerance?

    You can't make this **** up.

    I almost agree with you on both points. However, you know how ridiculous it sounds to christians when they hear non-christians judging what is "christian" and what isn't? Not saying this is the case with you, just generally.

    Then join his church and take over the congregation and fire him and let the scouts back in. What exactly would be a "good" Christian's politics?

    I would never want to join a church, especially one as douchey as that. Christians are supposed to be about "love the sinner" and welcome them in. A good christian would welcome them into his church then use the opportunity to preach to them about the err of their ways.

    I get it, but I was raised in an extremely fundamentalist southern bible belt christian home. I was a hardcore christian myself for 22 years, and a good half of my tattoos are religious in nature. I'm an atheist now, but I still grew up in the community and understand how a proper church reacts, and how a douchey one does.

    So that he could instruct and council them. He also said "go and sin no more.". I'm sure the pastor would be willing to do the same. Accepting them in the Church is a diffrent deal altogether.

    I wonder if would ban divorce lawyers?

    Well Southern Baptists are not exactly known for loving even each other. So are saying that the gays are sinners before God or that the Boy Scouts are?

    As far as I can tell he was not being a jerk about his refusal.

    According to the bible, only the gays themselves would be held accountable before god. The boy scouts have simply decided not to descriminate against sinners, that's not a sin.

    I find the whole gay-bashing tendency of christians to be rather insane. There are no gradients of sin, every sin is equal in the eyes of god. Therefore, their sin of being gay is equally as bad as your sin of lustful thoughts, vices, gluttony, envy, or simply being human.

    I find the whole Christian-bashing tendency of progressive secularist rather insane myself, especial when they preach tolerance and diversity, but that is just the reality of life today.
