    On that note we agree, But the kids aren't offenders with very few exceptions.

    Suggesting that Christ would throw a sinner out of his place of worship makes no sense. Now i could see it if the sinner was actively "sinning" in church.

    It wasn't the "young' scouts that pressured the NBSC to "accept" gay scouts, was it.

    and it certainly wasn't a bunch of church pastors advocated accepting gays.

    So?

    Who do you THINK pressured this change in policy?
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    We dont have a lot of source material showing where he allowed for 'sin'. We do have source material as to what should be done by sinners.

    If the BSA wants to secularize, than it must be ready to find secular venues.

    Women weren't allowed in inner temple when Christ was around and he never seemed to have a problem with that. He did however cast out the moneylenders, but I suppose that would satisfy your last condition.

    The purpose of the cookie baking club isn't to raise ethical and moral individuals, so it's a poor analogy.

    If the church thought it immoral to consume pork, and the cookie baking club suddenly proclaimed that it was going to include members who bake with lard - it would probably suffer the same fate. However, that same Church wouldn't refuse the Boy Scouts on those same grounds (that they don't ban cookie bakers who use lard). Your stance on embracing homosexuality doesn't speak to how you should make cookies, it does speak to how you prepare kids to make ethical and moral choices: some people believe that embracing homosexuality is immoral.

    The who isn't important. The why is.
