    I usually follow your thinking but I don't here. Isn't the BSofA registered as a non-profit as opposed to a religion?

    They should. I don't think they should be forced to do so by law, but they should allow/accept them.

    The proper way to go about this is to push for it from inside the organization, which is being done by some now.

    Do you think I'll ever get an answer? It does make a difference.

    Nor does ours. I think if they did, the Church might kick them out.

    The boy scouts are a private organization and therefore have the right to set any standards they wish. If they wish to not allow homosexuals, then they should be allowed to. They have the right to act as they wish as long as it does not cause physical harm to others.
    They may have the legal right to do so. That doesn't mean it's the right thing to do.

    I didn't really see where that was. You talked about "expressing their sexuality," but what does that mean even? A person expresses their sexuality in any number of ways - how they talk, dress, or just generally carry themselves.

    Do you want them to be robots?

    Right and wrong are determined by ethical/moral determinations. Since morals and ethics are personal codes of behavior, each individual will decide if it is right or wrong. Since I don't support the "normalizing" of homosexuality, and consider it immoral behavior outside of certain conditions, I have no problem at all with them blocking homosexuals from their private organization. If someone doesn't like it, then don't support them. There is never a good excuse to force others to accept another persons moral/ethical beliefs.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    I agree. If you want to be a scoutmaster you shouldn't worry about your navy past, NP. It's not anyone's business.
