Gay people are everywhere and in every organization. Does this pastor want to exclude them all, and just how will he accomplish that?

I never, ever, ever had anything even close to a sexual experience in boyscouts.
Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
Doesn't have to matter which side you may choose. My positionís beauty is, it applies to every side, maybe even fulfilling the liberal wet dream, being near completely equal. To all. Iíll say it for you, hard to find any real fault Ö well,... for those being honest, logical, sensible, reasonable.
Others needn't apply, anyhow..well, unless being too terribly cleverÖ Thatís worthwhile, at minimum entertaining.
Need to toss some of that " big load".
And I will forward the notion that there should also maybe be a classification of a homosexual's phobia of homophobia... what might that be, a kind of hypochondrial-homohomophobia maybe? Who knows, but you seem to be showing the symptoms.
Tolerance is not a virtue of Christianity.
I Cor. 5
1It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father’s wife.2You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.
3For I, on my part, though absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this, as though I were present.4In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and I with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,5I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?7Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.8Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people;10I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world.11But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one.12For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?13But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.
In other words, one who claims to be a Christian and practices intentional rebellion is not to be accepted.
Certainly if an organization promotes beliefs contrary to those of the church in whose building that organization wishes to meet, then the church maintains the right to deny the organization its use. Whether or not the majority of people think that is bigoted, mean-spirited or (place your favorite progressive pejorative here), that right, as guaranteed by the USC, is not to be infringed.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
