    Very sad that so-called "Christians" would want the Boy Scouts to discriminate against children who are homosexual.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Just might give others, who may actually be here to debate, a baseline, maybe allows me a little more objectivity, not having to defend a specific religion while also letting those who are up for real debate a bit more understanding of exactly where I am coming from.

    But, per usual, notice you do not answer the actual points made, instead you start immediately a campaign to assault... not of my arguments, but only the more extraneous points, or my character... think that is the best debate strategy, is it?

    Wow! That was pretty close to incomprehensible, with all those aborted clauses and inappropriate commas, which I suspect are supposed to be periods.

    But I'll do my best to respond

    The fact that you self-identified (I'm assuming that you're referring to your belief in God's existence), and if that matters to me, is obviously of some "concern" to at least one poster. If it weren't, you wouldn't have asked for my opinion about the issue.

    Just might give others, who may actually be here to debate, a baseline, maybe allows me a little more objectivity, not having to defend a specific religion while also letting those who are up for real debate a bit more understanding of exactly where I am coming from.
    You seem to think I have objected to your "self-identification". I have not.

    It seems that you think my first response to you in this thread was a comment about you. It wasn't. It was about the preacher.

    You remember the preacher, right? He's one of the subjects of this thread

    Wait till boy and gril scouts merge...as one giant scout organization.
    Just so I may prepare myself more properly...

    Will we be saying, "Ja, mein Führer"...or more along the lines of "Da, comrade Removable"?

    Certainly want to be ahead of the curve, to be fully prepared for this new, wonderful social order where everyone and everything is, by social mandate, the exact same...

    chaos...and way way way boring...

    Well, I must say...very creative response. You came up with: "Ja, mein Führer"...or more along the lines of "Da, comrade Removable"?... in less than 30 minutes. Now that's not boring at all. But you're dragging a bit with "wonderful social order where everyone and everything is, by social mandate, the exact same..."

    I'm forced to say that your ending words, "chaos...and way way way boring..." isn't becoming at all.

    Churches and the BSA are both private organization and therefore should be permitted, under a free society, to discriminate against whomever they want.

    Of course, the rationale for their discrimination is silly, although bigotry, by definition, has no rationale.
