    A lot of men do in both instances.

    Straight pedophiles rape little girls and gay pedophiles rape little boys.

The choice is theirs, but in most businesses they want the federal cheese.
    At the moment there is no discrimination laws that cover them. Regardless of that however my point holds true. Private property is private and money received has no effect on the rights of that property. Why is this so hard for people to understand?

    Navy, I have a question. If the vote is two to one or better in favor of allowing openly gay scouts and leaders into the Boy Scouts? Would you consider posting up: "Well, I could be wrong." ??

    Like it has been said already the BSA are a private organization and they should be allowed to say who can join.

    Of course, but being gay doesn't make you any more likely to be a pedophile than if you were straight.

    Morally straight is part of the Scout Oath, not the Scout Law. I recited the Scout Law.

    By "posting up," I mean entering a reply within this thread.

    I see that some people still believe that homosexuality is the same as pedophilia. It is not!
