stiletto_the_wise: obamadidcoke: Not allowing homosexuals doesn't make BSA a hate group. I belong to both the American Bar Association and the VFW both of these organizations have exclusionary membership requirements, but they are not hate groups.

I guess if the military excluded gays in past wars, then yes the VFW does.

Do they require you not to be gay, or not black, or not something that's biological and unchangeable? If not, then you just made a really stupid attempt at a comparison.

Weaver95: so you wanna take the position that the BSA doesn't put in a lot of time and effort with conservation efforts around the country? you REALLY wanna go that route?

Who said any such thing? I'm sure the Boy Scouts do a lot of volunteer work for conservation efforts. I just disagree with your claim that their work is worth $4,000 per man hour.

Weaver95: Keizer_Ghidorah: Oh, whoopee, they helped out nature. Gee, they did nice things for some people. I guess that means they're free to be assholes towards others as a form of reward or something.

I clean empty lots and help at soup kitchens, therefore I'm entitled to discriminate against Asians because they're not the same as me and I feel they're an affront to God and Jesus.


sorry man - the world isn't always black and white. you drive the BSA out of your local communities and well...you'll pay a price for it. actions, consequences, blah blah blah.


No one's saying the BSA should be run out of anywhere. We're only saying if they're going to insist on pushing their "We're a PRIVATE org, nyah nyah!" line, then fine, let them pay their fair share, just like every other private org has to. No more free rides on the public dime. It's rationally irrelevajnt how much they do in the community, and it's absolutely untrue that "very few" other groups do. LOTS of groups do, just about everywhere. The BSA goes camping and tells boys God will smite them if they're queer. That's not the kind of 'community service' this taxpayer is enthusiastic about in her own community. Yours may be different. But here, we have actual laws against such discrimination in accommodation and public spaces, and that means that taxpayers are not allowed to fund any such thing. But when the BSA uses one of our schools for free, that's what's actually happening. It's not a 'wash'; it's actually illegal, and it doesn't matter what or how much else they do that's "good".

Dalrint: I have seen several examples in this thread that 'pedophile scout masters' make people wary of gay scouts. What? If some guy goes around raping young girls, that doesn't make everyone suddenly suspect all the straight people of being pedophiles. And yet it's perfectly acceptable to make that assumption about gays because of a few pedophiles.

And this is putting aside that pedophilia is *not* the same as being gay, regardless of what gender they commit the crime against.

/I'm tired and annoyed so I hope that made sense.


Further to this, these clowns are also implying that it would be perfectly safe to leave your young daughter in the care of Jerry Sandusky for an afternoon while you go out and do some shopping, on the basis that he's a so-called gay paedophile. Ummm, hell no.

Weaver95: eddiesocket: Weaver95: Sylvia_Bandersnatch:
There's more to it than that, though. BSA groups also get off-book funding of a sort, in the form of free provisions from publicly-owned, taxpayer-funded facilities and resources. It's long been the practice in many communities, for example, to let the BSA use facilities such as public school spaces for free -- spaces that other non-profits would be asked to pay to use. That amounts to taxpayer support.

not really. I mean...consider all the effort the BSA puts into their local communities. again - everything from volunteer work to conservation efforts. VERY few other organizations do that for local communities. I think it's a wash as far as this talking point goes.

Well, we certainly can't argue with your solid stats.

it's 1am and f*ck you if think i'm gonna go wade thru google searches looking for verified stats on just how many man hours the BSA puts in per year on conservation work across the USA. short answer? lots. longer answer: HELL of a lot.


You're missing my point. It's irrelevant. ANY use of public space is public accommodation. Public accommodation in violation of law is illegal. That's all there is to this. There's nothing to look up, no accounting to be done. The BSA can paint every fire hydrant in town, but if they spend fifteen minutes in a public school gym that everyone else has to pay for, and they don't pay, and that jurisdiction bans discrimination against gays, then the law has been broken.

That's all we're saying: Private org, private rights, fine. But from now on you pay just like everyone else. If you don't want to obey our laws, then we can't legally extend you any public favours.

They seem to either forget or ignore that a paedophile is someone attracted to children below the age of puberty, and they either forget or ignore that girls are as much the victims as boys. Because if they did remember or pay attention to those details, they wouldn't be able to use their "ALL GAYS ARE PEDOS!" idiocy.

The origins of homosexuality are unknown. There is no concretely genetic link, just as there is no concrete psychological link. Further, current research indicates that some individuals change sexual identity over time.

Also, most are married to women, even the ones who molest boys. Which makes sense. If you were attracted to little boys, you probably would want to hide that as much as possible. Openly gay men are already looked at with suspicion by many. If you're a pedophile, get yourself a wife.

Well if you want to do that, your parenting skills are very scary. Courts don't ban paedophiles from contact with only boys or only girls for a very good reason.

Sandusky was a football coach. It follows that he had far more access to boys than girls, because parents were happy to drop their sons off to attend football programs which their daughters weren't interested in and even if they were, they'd have been using different shower facilities which Sandusky didn't have rights to access. I would suggest that is the reason for the exclusivity. European wolves don't tend to attack Australian wallabies on the basis they're on different continents, not because wallabies wouldn't be tasty to wolves.

He joined before he was aware of what sexuality was, like a lot of Scouts. Why should he be punished for it? Why is being straight one of the requirements for a badge that tells everyone you're a cool person?

Simple, exclusionary membership policies keep certain people out and let certain people in.

As a former Eagle Scout, this is DISGUSTING. I say former because I am one of the Eagle Scouts that returned his award to the BSA.

While i am not gay myself, i learned from the Boy Scouts of America what it means to stand up for your principles and what is right.

Shame on the BSA and (especially) the Mormon church for completely ruining the Scouts.

The BSA is *NOT* and never was intended to be an extension on your religion.

Weaver95: And late Thursday, the Boy Scouts of America said in a statement that because of Andresen's sexual orientation and that he did not agree to Scouting's principle of "Duty to God," "he is no longer eligible for membership in Scouting."

well, yeah - I mean it's their club house, the BSA sets the rules on this one. If they say 'no gay eagle scouts' then they won't let anyone gay become an eagle scout. you might not like their rules...but you do have to respect the right of the BSA to set their own rules for their own membership.. don't like the rules, don't join the scouts.


Agreed. Also, no more meeting in or on public facilities/property for free and no public funding. How do you get around the 'chartered by congress' thing? That's pretty embarrassing, not to mention unconstitutional.

I'm pretty sure that's because some pedophiles are bisexual (like the rest of the population), but that doesn't mean all of them are - or even a plurality. Also I'm pretty sure it's because kids are around other kids quite a lot, too.

You don't think Sandusky would have made a conscious choice to build his career in a place where he would be around boys?

Of course this is all speculative, but I think there's a lot of "popular wisdom" about pedophilia which isn't necessarily true.

Cheesus: I live in a state that overwhelmingly banned gay marriage. A majority of the US just doesn't like homosexuals. Give it another 10-20 years.


Wrong. Polls from this year show consistently 50-55% of Americans support legal gay marriage. It's the obstructionist party that is keeping this from happening most places.


As for the boy scouts, many of the leaders were openly homophobic when I was in it, and there were no mormons involved, this was straight up protestant.

I think there is a point we are missing.

Scouting is actually teaching a great life lesson here.

If you want to get ahead in life you have to learn to lie. Eagle Scout looks pretty good on college apps and early resumes. There is no comparable for boys. If you want that leg-up in the market - learn to lie. This valuable skill will be immeasurably useful in preparing you for life in America.

So consider it the unwritten 13th part of the Boy Scout Law. A boy scout is deceitful (when it is necessary to accomplish an otherwise worthy goal).

Any parent accused of neglecting their daughter because they left them in the care of a known paedophile who ran the defense "but he only abused boys" would be (metaphorically) crucified by the courts. The big danger to public safety of making claims on-line or in general conversation that so-and-so is a gay paedophile is that some idiot parent is one day going to accept this as conventional wisdom and leave their daughter in the hands of a known paedophile on this basis. If you want that on your hands, so be it. I'm certainly not taking that risk.

Maybe some paedophiles are genuinely exclusively only into boys. I think it's much more likely that they'll take any port in a storm. Prepubescent boys and girls are physically not too different.

It's not about you, (regardless of what your mommy told you) it's about giving to a worthy cause.

You should try it some time, dickhead.

No, I'm pretty sure it was about us "BSA haters", since you stated as much. (And likely didn't donate anything, anyway).
/"Worthy" causes don't discriminate.


It's worthy to me and it's got my support and my money so get over it you pointless troll.

Thanks for keeping me amused this evening and thanks for reminding me that I needed to give to BSA.
/Good night and good luck with your continued trolling.

And you're so insecure you have to brag about your "worthy cause" donations.

Not sure how that makes me insecure, but okay. My point is that anyone who really believes in a cause should support it with more than words on the internet.


And numerous people in this thread have done so. But they don't feel the need to brag about all the money they've sent. And sending back your eagle scout badge is one hell of a way to support a cause. The ballot box is another great way.

Was a scout for a very short time, so I just went to check how my old group is treating this. Well, quite a surprise: Fully supportive of LBGT, first Catholic youth organization to do so (couple of years back).

German youth organizations come a long way...

I earned the rank of Eagle Scout. And this is bullsh*t.

Weaver95: stiletto_the_wise: Weaver95: ah, so the BSA do have SOME differences from the KKK. lets go a bit further.

do the boy scouts organize gangs to go out and 'curb stomp' gays and minorities like the KKK does?

You can still be a hate group and not openly make use of physical violence to express your hate.

ooook, so there's a point of difference. the KKK goes out and uses physical threats and intimidation while the BSA...does what again exactly? oh, right...doesn't let gays join their reindeer games.

not exactly the same sorts of organizations after all, are they?


You don't hesitate to call others out on their hypocrisy, Weaver? Why the sudden white-knighting of the BSA? Why suddenly the "o they're a private organization they can do what they like" piousness? I never saw you say this for, say, the Catholic Church or the Baptists.

CINOs.
The Catholic Church is very strongly against it, going so far as to campaign against it in third world hellholes and even take it so far as to oppose UN resolutions to encourage decriminalization of it worldwide:

You're free to donate your money to whatever group you like. Nobody here cares in the least. We do care, however, when it's in-kind support funded by tax dollars.

Theaetetus: reaperducer: Don't believe in what the Scouts believe? Then don't join.

I thought the Scouts believed in covering up tens of thousands of instances of child rape. Simply "not joining" doesn't seem to be enough of a response.


That was gay people attempting to corrupt our kids, we need to protect our kids and ban gays from public life until we can find a cure for this sickness
