    So I guess you because you haven't made a rebuttal, you must agree with me. Jesus lived and dined among sinners every day. He put himself among them so that he could spread the word. This preacher has decided he'd rather make a political statement by banning innocent young boys from the premises. He's a coward and a bad christian.

    I do preach tolerance and diversity, which is why I'm opposed to anyone who is against those things. I have no problem with any religious person that doesn't try to force their beliefs on others, discriminate, or petition the government to have their religious views enforced.

    Why can't we all just believe what we want to believe, and let each other be?

    That is your opinion, and you have the right to express it

    My opinion is that he is a jerk and a poor example of a Christian. I have just as much right to express my opinion as you do yours

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

    I do not know why you are putting this as a political issue when it is a religius doctrine issue.

    But it does keep them in the news doesn't it? Has done wonders for Westboro and I am pretty sure they want you and most people to be offended by what they do, or else they wouldn't be doing it.

    No one is criticizing Christianity here. Au contraire. What would Christ do here?

    The man claims to be Christian. Yet his actions are the antithesis of Christ like. But hey, it's his right to be a dickhead.

    Well apparently in this case what they believe is unacceptable to some or it would not be discussed; ergo people are not just letting them be. I have different issues with the southern baptists than this. I think their belief that only a baptism will get you into heaven and as long as you are baptized you will go to heaven no matter what sin you commit a far greater stretch from the text than whether or not to let Boy Scouts meet in their basement.

    That last is a human thing that would exist and does without religion. As for the first part, pretty sure if the boys just wanted to camp there outside the umbrella of a gay accepting org that answer would probably be yes.
