    What? In being wrong? Prove that the Rotary or Elks club discriminate, and then Ray might have a point. If they don't, then he doesn't.

    No, just only concerned with yourself, your own supposed rights and comforts, just like most libertarians.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    By that, I mean people who are in a position of trust in the Boy Scouts have no business expressing their sexuality to the kids whether they are gay or straight. That's not their job. Conversely, if any person hired is only doing their job, it shouldn't matter whether they are gay or straight.

    Now...with the issue of protecting the kids from predatory adults, I think the Boy Scouts have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the kids whether it be from predation from gay, straight, male or female people in positions of trust.
    Excellent post and right on target. It is not the job of scoutmasters to discuss their sexuality.

    Rotary Club does not discriminate against gays. Each local chapter is free to determine who can join.

    Elks Club does not discriminate against gays.

    Well done Ray, you are wrong again.

    The Elks Club really don't want it broadcast it but gay's are welcome as long as they behave themselves and don't bring shame or attention to the family aspect of the Elks Club. You also must be an American, not a hyphenated-American.

    Since everyone is held to the same standards and there are no special protections for certain groups of people and everyone has to behave, most gays would rather get involved with organizations like the Boy Scouts where they can misbehave and act like kids.

    That is your opinion the BSA and a lot of people don't agree with you.
    *smh*

    I didn't offer an opinion. It was a generic comment.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You said "most". Your comments above do not qualify as "most".
