    [edit] O.k .. I thought about this for the past couple of minutes, and let me rephrase this. The boy scouts voted to allow gay members and leaders in. I do not agree with this, but in the same turn, they are a private group that can do what they want. So if they want to do this. Then more power to them. They just buckled under that pressure. I will not be supporting them anymore, though. [/edit]

    This leads me to wonder if the Girl Scouts will follow suit?

    O.k.. I am retracting what I said. It was said on the radio that Gay Scout leaders will still be barred from joining. I am back to supporting them.

    I'm not - the "scout leader" who supplied the video confirmation is a flamer to the nth.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    This is called foot in door, a gay activist on Fox said they weren't finished yet and you can bet they aren't.
    Next will be openly gay scout leaders and of course there is always the push for legal pedophilia in the background.
    Whether by homosexuals or heterosexuals our children are being eyed as prey by predators, Something to be used as toys for their gratification and then thrown away to deal with the emotional problems the best they can.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Well, if they do end up allowing gay scout leaders, I will at that point stop supporting.

    Back in January, the BSA executive committee had suggested a plan to give sponsors of local Scout units the option of admitting gays as both youth members and adult leaders or continuing to exclude them. However, the plan won little praise, and the BSA changed course ...

    The proposal approved Thursday was seen as a compromise ....
    So if you cant get a part of the proposal through... you just throw the baby out with the bath water. Great move... /s.

    I have to assume that morality is just a word now ... until its not just a word. Gotta luv "pop culture" dontcha?

    As Rock said... "This is called foot in door ..."

    A great, great organization has just undercut itself... for what?? There is a reason it was such a great organization. And if it has to be explained... it must be lost on the one who has to ask. This just plain stinks.

    And people wonder why conservatives are being viewed as hateful homophobes.

    Gays are not even in the same ballpark as pedophiles. Pedophiles hurt children.

    And if you want to talk about emotional problems to have to deal with, let's talk about the emotional problems that homosexual kids have to deal with from "adults" like you who want to kick them out of an organization they've been part of for years.


    Yep, I'm keeping my progressive values. No way would I ever consider the other side after reading crap like that.

    Rock speaks for himself, not all conservatives, Lanie. I am conservative and I don't give a rat's ass about anyone's sexual orientation as long as it doesn't intrude on another's rights. You need to understand that one can be a fiscal Conservative without being a social Conservative. Unlike "progressives" (aka Liberals), the Conservative label does not require one to march in lock-step with other Conservatives on all of the issues. The intolerance that exists among Liberals is often made manifest when they turn on their own like rabid dogs whenever one of them espouses a view that doesn't meet the needs of the group. I have seen such behavior far more often among Liberals than I have among Conservatives. The choice of which side you associate with comes down to which one accepts free thinkers more. This is why I call myself a Conservative and will never call myself a Liberal or Progressive or whatever neat little moniker the Left adopts to mask its true intentions from the uninformed.

    Keep your progressive values, it's your privilege. I don't agree with you on almost anything, but that's my privilege. It doesn't mean either of us are bad people, just differ in our value systems. As far as kids getting hurt, I suspect far more kids have emotional scars from predatory gays. A friend of mine had both sons affected for years by a predatory priest, kicked out by the church in Boston, who made his way to another city. He set himself up as a counselor. What a set up---in a position of authority and trust. Sort of like the way a scout leader might be. Sorry, just don't agree with you, Lanie.
