    and more here: Churches grapple with whether to cut Boy Scout ties

    “We believe that the BSA policy change will lead to a mass exodus from the Boy Scout program, as Assemblies of God and many other churches can no longer support groups that are part of an organization allowing members who are openly homosexual,”

    I though they were supposed to love the sinner...

    No, it's out and out marketting.

    The Boy Scouts has not become the Gay Scouts.

    It's still the Boy Scouts.

    Do those churches ask every single person who steps on to their property what their sexual orientation is?

    It's the Churches decision to make. It's the wrong one but at least they are giving the boy scouts troop enough time to find a new place to meet.

    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    What age are these ''gay scouts??''
    Youth and adults who are developmentally disabled, or youth with severe physical challenges, may be considered for registration beyond the age of eligibility for their program: [from 7 to 11]over age 11 for a Cub Scout, [from 12 to 18]18 as a Boy Scout or Varsity Scout, or ]from 18 to 21]21 as a Venturer or Sea Scout (see Rules and Regulations of the Boy Scouts of America, article XI, section 3, clause 20, reproduced in the appendix, 11.5.0.0). A developmentally disabled adult of any age, for example, may be considered for youth membership and join Scouting if a qualified medical professional is able to correlate cognitive abilities to less than the upper limit of an eligibility age. Members approved to be so registered are indicated in the system with a disability code.

    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.

    The pastor actually answered your question. In the process he made it appear it was he that was shouldering the burden not them. Gotta love hypocrisy.


    It's hard on a personal level to say to a troop of young boys who have done nothing wrong and to the leaders, 'You're not welcome here,'"
    So he calls the very boys he's banning innocent, and bans them anyway.

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

    How so very considerate of them. This makes it all better.
