    This is also how I feel ^.

    My father and I just had a related discussion last night. It seems to us that a rather large segment of our society encompassing all spectrums want to force people with opposing thoughts to conform to their views. It seems a minority such as myself may disagree with other peoples views and actions but believe that is their right to believe or act the way that they do. Who am I to try and force anyone to conform to my beliefs assuming no one is being harmed? We came to the obvious conclusion that the world would be a much better place if everyone would just stop screwing with other people and allow them to live their lives as they see fit. Instead people are all the time trying to dictate how others should live when it is no business of theirs.

    They should do what they want, it's their organization, their rules.

    No attack, Navy. Just legitimately curious. You've started a number of threads and polls on this very question. I imagine the responses will be largely the same. What is your extreme fascination with this issue?

    I do not see why they would not allow openly gay scouts or scoutmasters. There is no logical reason not to allow them.

    Yet they do, they get preferential treatment and cheap accommodations on public land that other groups do not receive.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't see why they shouldn't.

    And that will change if federal discrimination laws are changed. But hey, it's not MY organization that is in jeopardy, so I don't really care.

    It's a private organization, they can allow or prohibit whoever they want.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Because they don't want to and see such as morally wrong? Honestly, I'm always perplexed by people getting caught up with what organizations are doing, that they likely have no interest in.

    You don't like BSoA policy? Great, don't send your kid there.
