    There is only one Gospel, not one taught by Jesus and another on taught by Paul. Both the Old and New Testaments condemn homosexuality.

    Re: Boy Scouts to accept openly gay youth starting in January

    I am a former Boy Scout myself. I achieved the rank of Eagle. I can no longer support the organization in any way due to this change in policy.

    I have asked the local council to remove my name from the list of Eagle Scouts living in the area and I've informed the medieval recreation group I'm part of that I will no longer participate in any of the 8-12 demonstrations we've done each year for the BSA.

    And if you had some kind of data on allegations vs. convictions or something, there might be something to talk about. But your single anecdote is useless to the discussion.

    So Jesus never condemned homosexuality, then. Ok. So why is shrimp ok now but being gay isn't?

    I'm not trying to be rude here, I just am not familiar enough with the biblical support for the idea.

    So you need others to do your research. No instead you will just by the media hype against religion. Gotcha.

    I know quite a few parents that have don't the same. Soon enough there will be no BSA in the US. Just what the gays wanted.

    I don't know if it'll die but it will be seriously damaged. I was a 3rd generation. Boy Scout. If I have a son he will not continue that tradition. I know more than a few who feel the same way.

    I'm sorry a private organization's decision to allow children to join bothers you so much. But feel free to make some more doomsday predictions about them queers. They're always amusing. Moral fabric, etc, right?
