    One does not get involved with the Elks Club to act like kids.

    The gay activist remind me of the guy in the wheelchair who goes from business to business with a tape rule looking for a violation of the ADA. Measuring how high the mirrors are in the restroom and how wide the aisle are.

    A few years ago I would always be confronted by gays outside of a business gathering signatures to repeal DADT. I always asked them do any of you plan to join the military if DADT is repealed ? I didn't find one who planned on joining the military, they all hated the military.

    Why not just tell Navy Pride that only liberals are allowed to change the definition of words to further their leftist agenda ?

Just as open acceptance of an avowed and unrepentant liar or open acceptance of a scout leader that is adulterous would be an affront to their stated values, so to would acceptance of homosexual scout leaders. There is and should be no more concern that an openly gay scout leader would be a predator than there is that a heterosexual woman would target scouts.
    I have to admit you lost me on that one.

    And I believe I answered Madmans question.

    I saw things that are indescribable and maybe even did somethings I wasn't to proud of when I was 18 and 19 years old in 69 and 70. So little today phases me. I've seen the real world because I lived through it.

    Have you ever wondered why some of us started greying in our 30's ?

    Re: Should the boy scouts allow openly gay scouts and scoutmasters.

    First, morally straight doesn't and never did mean heterosexual.

    Second, if straight women can be Boy Scout masters and straight men can be Girl Scout Leaders (which they can), I don't see the rationale in barring homosexuals from holding such positions.

    Third, if the BSA is truly a private organization then it should be allowed to be as bigoted as it wants. But it is not TRULY a private organization. It receives all kinds of special treatment from the government and the US military that is not extended to competitive organizations. Did you know if you are an Eagle Scout and then enlist in the Army you can enter as an E-2 instead of an E-1? That is an extra 170 bucks or so a month as an award for being a boyscout. BSA are invited to participate in numerous activities with the military and are given free use (though they may be asked to pay $1) of government spaces that isn't offered to competitive organizations.

    There is absolutely no reason at all to deny them access. Any argument against openly gay people in the scouts will fall under the "Bigot" category as far as I'm concerned.

    What does this have to do with the topic of this thread?

    I don't see any connection.
