    Little kids are asexual and don't think in those terms until adults tell them to think that way.
    .... ok man.... You can argue you implied nothing but its pretty obvious.

    Agreed, but the adults in charge of advertising and promotion, and now education want to make sure 10 year olds are fully aware and sexualized.

    The hell? Did I ever say he HAD to do anything? Did I ever say the state should swoop in and force him to do anything? No. I just called him a douche bag and a terrible christian.
    That's called being judgmental. The dictionary is your friend.

    It doesn't make you a terrible libertarian, it makes you a semi or quasi libertarian. You make the point that the discrimination is legally acceptable but morally wrong. Why do you care how he treats gay people? Do gay people (or anyone for that matter) have some sort of moral right to compassion or kindness or respect from others? Who are you to call others "douche bags" simply because they don't treat others the way that you would? What's the underlying philosophy that justifies your brand of judgmentalism, because it's surely not libertarianism.

    You have absolutely no idea what libertarianism means. In no way, shape, or form, does it mean that you have zero opinions and never judge anybody. You can judge the hell out of them, you just can't force them to do anything.

    I hate bigots, racists, sexists, and other pieces of ****. This clown is a bigot, and a terrible christian.

    So if you'd like to show some references showing that libertarianism means keeping your mouth shut and never "saying anything mean" about anybody, then spit 'em out. Otherwise, stop making yourself look like an even bigger idiot.

    And why the "undisclosed" lean? Afraid somebody is going to make up **** about what they think you believe?

At least our side asks you to voluntarily accept it, its not foisted upon us in the schools that, in effect, worship these scientific "pronouncements" as sacred of this small scientific elite and what they say, which is what they say must go...

    You talk about sad and childish, and add that dimension of totalitarianism...scary...
    The scientific theory of the origin of life has no rocks making decisions. The first thing to know about the theory is that the evidence suggests that the universe is extremely old and extremely large and the conditions on the extremely large number of planets varies greatly due to varying distance from their stars and the different chemicals found on each planet. The theory is that on one or more of these millions or billions or more planets the conditions were such that the chemicals at some point happened to form into a substance capable of being a building block for life. These chemical building blocks of life combined in various forms until self reproducing life was made. Over millions of years some of these self replicating simple form of life evolved into more complex life forms.

    In my view, this theory seems quite plausible when you consider the size and age of the universe.

    Lots of organizations hold meetings in churches, not just the Boy Scouts.

    Most boys his age are not and that could be a problem, epecially on a camp out type situation.

    I don't remember any boys I knew knowing they were gay or even what that was. We saw later they had come out but as young boys, scout age, it was not an issue.
    I and all the other boys I knew were very interested in sex by age 13, which I believe is in the middle of the age range for boy scouts. Most gay people I know say they knew they were attracted to their same gender by age 13-14.

    Sorry, it is you that don't understand libertarianism. You might want to read some books on it so that you can qualify your views appropriately.

    Your moral philosophy is not a libertarian one.

    You believe that (certain) others are deserving of respect and kindness. That is to say, others are obligated to act in a certain manner that conforms to your personal views or they are chided and even 'hated' as racists, sexists, terrible Christians, and (like you) bigoted - "utterly intolerant of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own."

    And why the "undisclosed" lean? Afraid somebody is going to make up **** about what they think you believe?
    I like to let my arguments stand for themselves. For the same reason, I try not to talk about my occupation or education. There's often little value in a "trust me, I'm a ______" argument.
