    I find that adults that respect authority (typically taught to respect authority when they were young) are open to this vulnerability.

    Whether they are openly gay or not is irrelevant to me.

    No man whom I don't know EXTREMELY well (like a very, VERY close friend/relative) would I trust to go camping with my son.
    Well, my post was really directed to Wolfie...but since you responded.

    Your response is a separate issue all together. It's not about disqualifying any specific person based on his or her sexuality. It's disqualifying all persons whom you don't know well enough for your son to be in their custody...away from the family unit. So, I would say that overall, the scouting program isn't for you...or your son...unless the scout master(s) are known and trusted by you.

    Yeah, somehow I quoted the wrong post.

    Sorry.

    I actually can't believe that 78% of the posters here would have no problem handing their kids over to a gay guy...

    Are you trying to get rid of them for a week?? NO MATTER WHAT??

    I sat with a man once..who was a serious financier..but became an alcoholic..

    His parents used to leave him with a priest whilst they worked in India..

    The priest used to ''bugger'' him on a regular basis..when his parents came home and he tried to tell them what had happened..he was told he was ''a naughty boy who told lies'' and should be ashamed..

    Again...are you saying that a gay man, who is a scout master, is also a pedophile? And...that all gay men are predators on male children...who would purposely attempt to force or advocate their sexual orientation on a child who happen to be in that troop...

    So in essences you identify being "gay" the same as being a "pedophile".

    There is a major difference...despite your personal fears.

    Actually, you shouldn't disqualify men who live heterosexual lives...with wives and children of their own...who are scout masters. You know, just like Jerry Sandusky.

    Your children are going to have to live out their lives on a very short lease...and/or...remember to drill a lot of air holes in the glass box that they will spend their childhood in.

    And this "return it to the states" mantra... that's really just code for "I want to be able to infringe on the rights of minorities without that pesky constitution stopping me."



    I would say Stevens and Sotomayor are actual liberals. And much to the chagrin of conservatives, left leaning justices are more inclined towards small government rulings.

    Not my kids.........We taught them the difference between right and wrong....If that incident ocurred they would have said Dad I don't want to go to a camp where there are openly gay scouts.

    To you, the Taliban are left wing. And why are you "shouting" with all this big text? Are you afraid people won't see your posts? Do you think that bigger letters will intimidate people into agreeing with you? Do you think we judge the conviction of your opinions by the size of your font?

    And they will live a lesser life because of the bigotry you have instilled in them. They will pass up rich experiences that could enrich their lives, and will act with malice towards innocent people because you are uncomfortable about other men's penises.
