    That's called polishing a turd. There isn't a silver lining. Seriously. Why can't you simply call it what it is instead of playing the "It's their right" nonsense.

    Of course it's within their rights.

    That isn't the point.

    For me, this underscores why giving all churches tax exemptions pisses me off to no end.

The Scouts are losing their camps (many of them were sold to private campgrounds back a bit when the Scouts started dying off).

    Do these churches allow Alcoholics Anonymous groups, or what about Veterans groups to have meetings in their facility?
    Do bingo nights start with a request to know who is gay and who is straight?

    It's just dumb. A church should be open to all, and especially the "sinners". What better way to possibly "reach" them?

    Is this a joke??
    I am stunned at how incredibly stupid your question is. You 're the same guy who asks whether the Boy Scouts are exclusively male.

    There are plenty of boys who KNOW they are gay in their very early teens.

    Some are probably aware of it before puberty hits.

    My teenage daughter has a classmate that's transgender, and has been that way since she/he was 13 years old.

    Kids start dating and experimenting with relationships in late elementary school and early junior high school now.

    Hell - there's all kinds of reports of sex in middle schools.
    Yep.. I'm OK with that..but do the heterosexual scouts know about homosexuality..are they OK with feeling uncomfortable every day because they are not gay??

    Why do you assume homosexuals make people feel uncomfortable?

    And the next time you run a church you can run it that way.

    I always call it what it is. I said it was the wrong decision and I said it was within their right...how's that not what it is? I can't get upset over all of the stupid **** people do in the world especially when they aren't physically hurting anybody by doing it and that troop is going to be better off for it.

    Their tax exempt status is a separate issue.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.
