    Now all of the sudden you are conservative?

    If you don't care what sex I have than why carry on for 66 pages griping about it?

    Riddle me this: If my 10-year-old is manipulated to have guy-on-guy sex by a 14-year-old, how is that any less a traumatic experience than if it was an 18-year-old manipulating him?
    Listen, you raise you kids however you want, I don't wish to tell you you are wrong.

    But I want to ask if you think your kid will turn gay for being in proximity to gay people, you kids isn't strait. People don't convert.

    Are there any other anomalies that make you uncomfortable?

    I do NOT believe my son would turn gay, for God's sake. Homosexuality is a sexual orientation, not (in most cases) a choice. Those who believe otherwise are freakin' nutz.

    because gay scouts would infringe on other peoples rights, the pright of a private organization and that is against the constitution?

    Y'know... I'd have a concern if it was mixed boys and girls (if some were over 12), because of the potential for some of the youngsters to sneak around and have sex if not carefully supervised.

    If you have all boys (and men Scoutmasters) but some are gay... the same concern applies, doesn't it? Because you have people who might be sexually attracted to each other camping out in the woods together, and most of them are underage.

    You'd need lots of good supervision.


    So anyway, I would not be crazy about the idea no.
    But wouldn't those concerns be only limited to those members who are actually gay?

    No offense, but I think this is probably a prejudice he's picked up at home.

    I asked my cousin today what she would do. She said it wouldn't make a twit worth of difference to her. I asked, "But what if your boys (she has 2 grown) were 10 and 12? She said, "Maggie, by that age, my kids knew how their father felt about gays. It would not be a problem." So there is THAT bit of home prejudice to account for. It's not a good thing, but it's there.

    Isn't it the Boy Scouts that's actually considering their own policy? Nobody's forcing them.
