    It's a step in the right direction but I don't feel it's going to really excise homophobia and discrimination from their organization, since it was public pressure, not true compassion and acceptance, that spurred this policy change.
    Actually it was held up unnecessarily. It was always embarrassing to see the visceral reaction from adults about something the kids mostly don't have any problems with.

    As to your "adult leaders" i doubt it's much different from the general public, but if it's really that pressure that led to the change, the same thing will happen the first time some kid is booted over his sexuality.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I think it explains itself well enough. If you can't understand it by reading it directly, then there's little reason to think that it'll do any good for me to try to explain it to you.

    So pedophiles are going to infiltrate the Boy Scouts roles because openly gay kids are allowed in the Boy Scouts? Its that the reason and your position?

    About time... kids don't care at all. It is an adult bias that is learned... We had a gay classmate/friend in grade school that wore make-up even. Nobody cared. We knew it was different but I guess we just accepted him as different... but cool.

    My daughter (8 and 9) asked about homosexuality recently. I told them. They were fine with it. I even made a half-joke but ultimately real statement that if they grew up to find they liked girls that was fine with me, as long as they were happy. My younger one told her friend (in front of me) that I was fine if they (my girls) were lesbians. They then made the "yucky" faces and shivered... it was freaking funny.

    Or you simply lack the honesty to come out and say what you're actually thinking.

    People who hide behind imagery usually don't have very strong arguments to make.

    Actually, it doesn't. We can make an assumption but that is all it is....

    Don't blame Christians for what a bunch of perverted priest do under the guise of Christianity.
