The priest 'pulled out' of the Scouts because they are now allowing gay scout members within the organization.

Apparently this priest only likes to molest straight boys.

This is good. If the horrible bigoted organizations pull out their support for the boy scouts over one trivial non-evil act, it will make future progress easier, because those voices will be gone.

Enjoy stewing in your own hate.

When did they start calling parish priests "pastor?" It's an Americanism, apparently. I guess most of my knowledge of Catholicism comes from watching British TV.

Most of the 'hate' for boy scouts was centered around their ban on having homosexual members and troop leaders while accepting federal funding.  I'm not sure what your father has to do with it.  Now that they have allowed homosexual members there is a lot less 'hate' for them.

/hate is in quotes because it was never hatred
//just disgust

The whole "They are gay, and the bible says that's a sin, so they can't be in the boy scouts" argument is funny.  Homosexuality is hardly the only sin, but the boy scouts don't kick you out if you get caught stealing a candy bar or lying about your homework.  Everyone is a sinner, right?  That's straight out of the book.

Agreed. The people against this are very selective regarding what is too big to be tolerated. Why isn't "being gay" in the Ten Commandments if it is such a big deal?

Subby is an asshole to the largest degree possible.

The supposedly enlightened FARK liberals got their way to make the Boy Scouts recognize the modern outlook on homosexuality, and yet still play down to the unwarranted jab of assuming there are rampant problems with rogue gays preying on adolescent boys.

It would behoove those trying to get society at large to stop feeling like gays are predatory if the jokes ceased.

The thing I don't get is, shouldn't the bigots want the gays in the organization so that they can teach them their despicable ways are despicable when they are young and impressionable? I can see logical reasons the religious groups wouldn't want gay leaders, but members?

The Catholic Church had its dark days of covering things up, but that stopped a while ago.  They actively pursue predators these days.  Not apologizing for them, just trying to keep the conversation focussed.  Leave the Scouts out of it--we have had policies in place for years, such as it's illegal, if you will, for any adult to be alone at any time with a Scout.  All adults are expected to keep an eye on every other adult.  The kids are taught repeatedly they should never be alone with an adult for any reason.

It's for the adult's protection, too, so we don't get falsely accused.  It's a rare occurrence, but false accusations did happen.

Thank You
For reminding me why I have not set foot in a Catholic church in over 20 years.

The decision to remove the scouting program from your church and the ignorance filled letter from Pastor Lappe are a sign of everything that is wrong with religion in America.
Statement such as "We are going to teach the full truth of human sexuality - especially the truth about contraception as the greatest destroyer of marriage and family life." expose the complete lack of understanding of Pastor Lappe and unfortunately many in the Catholic church today of life and society in general.  I know plenty of people who didn't believe in contraception, most have 4, 5 or more kids and many are divorced now.  My wife and I on the other hand have 2 children, 2 happy, healthy, well provided for children and we're now going on 13 years of marriage.  Because we decided to control the number of children we have my Wife is now able to be a stay at home mom to them, we give generously to charity both financially and with our time.  Without tooting our horn I'd say we're the kind of family people want to see more of.  Hmm, looks like that whole "Contraception tears families apart argument actually proves to be exactly the opposite in the real world.In reality, Pastor Lappe's argument or explanations about the causes of Homosexuality are probably the worst argument I've ever heard.  If sexuality is so easily influenced by environmental factors and not genetic as Pastor Lappe says then ALL sexuality, straight or gay is a result of environment and neither is the human's natural state.

I fit 4 of the 7 categories put forth by Pastor Lappe as causes of homosexuality, but yet I grew up a happy well adjusted heterosexual male who respects the rights of my fellow humans to live their life in the way that best suits them.

Hopefully, one day the Cathorlic church will come to respect those same rights

I'm an adult leader in the Scouts and have wondered for years how the previous ban was not seen as an admission that the 2-deep leadership model didn't work.

Agree with whoever said it, I can only hope that all the people this decision offends go ahead and identify themselves and leave Scouting, will make it a much better place and aid further progress to modernize a good but decaying organization.

I was sitting near a couple of people at a swim meet the other day, when this man started going on about how the Evangelical Lutherans had started to become "too worldly" by cozying up to "the gays"... so help me, if you ever find yourself using "the gays" non-ironically in conversation, you have a problem.

Best part was, after a lot of rousing discussion between these two about how homosexuality wasn't scriptural and was obviously forbidden by the bible, they discussed how they were both divorced but you know that was completely ok because of reasons... :P

There is also a certain irony that the Scouts and the Catholic church (and likely other organizations that work with kids) all teach the 2-deep leadership model for the same reasons/history...

Don't get me started on the unfortunate choice of calling it the "2-deep model"...

I guess you haven't been reading any of the 54 other threads about the Boy Scouts then, or the articles that explain what their policies were and why people disapproved of them.  Or maybe you were just too stupid to understand what you read.

I guess those are the only two ways you could so utterly fail to understand what has been said over and over.

Ban's still in place for scout leaders (age 21 and up), just not scouts. FYI. And gay scouts must "leave" the organization (not counting Navigators, as you're still scouting, not leading). They also can't serve as assistant scout leaders (age 18-20). So basically, if you come out as gay, when you turn 18, you can't help those below you in age out as an adult. You're done.

And yes, the ban does, if you take it to its logical conclusion, mean that the 2-adult system doesn't work - which it does.

There's a termin for this sort of thing: it's "meme". Look it up.

While you're at it, look up "tubgirl" too. Once you do, you'll know how incredibly far predatory pederast priests are from the worst thing one could fetishize.

Liberals used to be famous for the concept of incrementalism--it's too bad so many have forgotten the successes that can happen with it.

Given the facts that Scouting has a founding tenant of religiosity, and is often locally chartered by religious institutions, this recent vote is a huge step forward in accepting the modern viewpoint of homosexuality.  This was a win for fairness and acceptance.

Within a few years and the adults will be accepted, too.  When one is trying to modernize a quasi-religious institution, little bites will consume the elephant better than trying to down the whole thing at once.
