    How about banning teenagers who feel jealousy or greed 3 times a week?
    Hardly.

    At the same time we are not putting that type of behavior on blast, broadcasting it as what we want everyone to just do, openly... again, and you didn't respond to this with my previous response to your post, but who needs to declare openly that they are masturbating or... their sexual preference. That is not at all, or should not be, what scouting is supposed to be all about...why do you folks have to make everything about people's genitalia and how, when they use it and who they use it with? Does everything have to be made so crude for everyone else so that you may enjoy it, and everybody else forced to acknowledge your penchant for just having to tell everybody?

    We are not interested, scouting should be about building friendships, teamwork, building character, learning skills...leave them alone for god's sake...

    l wonder if they see these threads
    The difference being of course that the Christian in question wants to prevent them from meeting in his building and the extremist Islamists want to burn them and hang them from bridges. Oh...and another interesting difference...should the topic of extremist Muslims come up, those venting their bigotry, hatred, and intolerance towards the pastor will be the first to defend the extremist Muslims. Funny world, isnt it.

    These churches are not allowing in the hated sin... there was no mention made of hating any of the Scouts, of whatever preference...can you point to any hate? And it was an organizational decision by the BSA, so if they, the young Scouts themselves, feel they are being improperly punished, maybe have the BS of America return to practices and guidelines more in compliance and more in line with the what is acceptable to the churches they might expect to have cooperative efforts with.

    Problem solved.

    Again the hatred of the church shows it's true colors. I agree it's time the Boy scouts left the archaic practices of the sky god church since the church is intolerant of the sinner instead of the sin.

    The way things are going the church is going to eventually find hard times finding support. Good riddance.

    No, they're not letting the hated sinners in

    43“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’44“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.46“For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?47“If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?48“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    So, if you are Christian, is everybody that is not a Christian called a gentile? I honestly thought that was a Jewish thing. So I'd like to learn something.

    Anybody is welcomed to answer this question. Inquiring mind at work here....

    Gentile is of Latin derivation. The Jewish (ie Yiddish) term for non-Jews is "goyim" which is often used in a derogatory fashion. Goyim is somehow related to the word gentile. At least, that is my understanding of it.

    I'm fine with anyone disagreeing so long as they have a logical, rational, evidence-based reason to do so. When it's morons talking to an imaginary friend in the sky as their only explanation for why they hate others, that's none of the above.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Not everyone broadcasts it. Sometimes people just find out. I think boyscouts should have NOTHING to do with sexual preference one way or the other. And that making a rule allowing or disallowing gays is preposterous. But sometimes people will find out and to disallow someone after it is known is cold blooded even if you personally may think its wrong.

    Mathew was preaching to Christians of jewish descent.

    Apostle Paul was the first to preach to gentiles.
