    Yet, you would let your kids attend mass?

    It's kind of confusing how some people think.
    Its really quite simple.........When my family goes to mass we don't sleep with the priest...........with a gay scoutmaster or scout they might sleep in the same tent. I hope that explains it for you.

    You bunked with a bunch of sailors, bro.

    Seriously, why? Do you think gay people are just incapable of respecting that someone is straight?

    If they approve gays openly in the scouts I would not be surprised to see a mass exodus.

    I know your a Catholic hater and you love to spiel your point about the priests but the truth is only about 1% of Catholic Priests have been convicted of any child abuse.
    Sucks to see an entire group of people being so unfairly judged, doesn't it?

    I don't know what troop you went to, but NO ONE sleeps in the same tent as the scout master unless he's the scoutmaster's son. Furthermore, when it comes to cottages, the scout leaders tend to bunk together. Scouts do not sleep in the same structure as unrelated adults. Period.

    Furthermore, two person tents tend to suck for a variety of reasons that if you were a boyscout, you'd know. No one in my troop ever took a two person tent out on a trip unless it was a car camp. 10 days in the backwoods of Philmont, I didn't see anyone carry or use a two person tent.

    Don't know if you were ever a BS or not but those tents they put up are mighty small

    For a reason. Everyone carries their own. And 1 person tents tend to be lighter than two person tents. Weight is everything.

    Furthermore, if something breaks irreparably on a two person tent, you now have two people without shelter. If a one person tent breaks, you can always sleep two people in close quarters in a one person tent if you put your gear outside. This is part of being prepared.

    I seriously doubt you have any real understanding of modern boy scouting.

    We had no cottages at our camp and the tents were made for 4 people, many times they had 5 or 6 but you can believe what you want.

    What decade of the 20th century were you a Boy Scout in, again?
