hardinparamedic: scottydoesntknow: Another parent explained to their kid that it goes against God's law, so the kid now thinks that the BSA vote to allow gay youth in was actually a vote to go for or against honoring God: "It was between honor and God, and not honoring God. And [not] honoring God got more votes."What is a God to a nonbeliever?
Benevolent Misanthrope: TuteTibiImperes: Somacandra: TuteTibiImperes: I do believe that they're using the 'no political agenda' thing as smokescreen because of anti-gay bias, but Independence Day parades and honoring fallen veterans aren't inherently political. Patriotism != political bias.[upload.wikimedia.org image 240x345]Do you not know your American history? Try telling that to Frederick Douglass or any Amerindian leader in the United States. The only reason you consider it non-political is that its fits within your personal political comfort zone.So Independence Day is political because in our past various minorities were oppressed/enslaved in the US? That's taking a pretty big leap IMO. Part of the Boy Scout Oath is duty to country, which implies some degree of patriotism.The celebration of Independence Day and the honoring of veterans aren't contentious political issues, and like I mentioned, I'd hesitate to consider the issue of Independence Day to be a political issue at all (in terms of veterans, particularly vehement anti-war activists may feel that serving in the military is not an honorable action, but most of those people would be considered on the fringe today).What it all comes down to is that neither celebrating Independence Day nor honoring veterans would be interpreted by any rational person as promoting a political agenda. To be fair, I wouldn't consider marching in a gay pride parade to be promoting a political agenda either. Basic human rights and equality aren't inherently political.Sooooo... what about the pic up above that shows them at a GOP Rally? Care to white knight that one?
letrole: Mock26: The Boy Scouts of America can go to Hades.This pretty much sums up the sentiment of the thread (and the issue in general)It would seem that there is a desire to destroy what cannot otherwise be obtained, not unlike a loser who shoots a girl who spurns him with the twisted logic "If I can't have her, then nobody can".
I Like Shiny Things: Walter Paisley: I Like Shiny Things: hardinparamedic: I Like Shiny Things: Ok, you were obviously trolling and you wanted everyone to know that (u tell funny joke!), but the sad part is that your statement would have been completely true if you replaced your "100%" with " 75%".Oh God. I'm being countertrolled.You typed 'countertrolled' when you meant 'corrected'.Its 4pm on a Saturday. I could go to any bus station or subway and have my dick sucked by a homo and it would probably take about an hour, including round trip drive.Could a straight person accomplish this? You think I could go to these same places and find some woman (fat, ugly, diseased...I'm not picky) to do the same thing?I'd really like a serious answer to that.Yes, but probably not at the bus station or the subway. Try Wal-Mart or the 7-Eleven.You are talking about prostitution...you obviously have no idea how the gay community works, because you are straight?That was kind of my entire point, and its also the point that some of these Boy Scout leaders are trying to make.Since you aren't very bright, I'll keep it simple for you:I can go to any of the places mentioned above and get my cock sucked for free. Gay sex. Free. always, anywhere, anytime.Like the someone above mentioned, 'There's an app for that!'.If I wanted straight sex from a woman, I'd have to put a bit of effort into it, or pay. Not much effort, since I'm pretty studly and I just got back from the gym about 26 minutes ago, but it still takes a bit of work.
jcooli09: I was a scout leader for a couple of years. My son and I dropped out because we had to affirm a faith in a higher power, as I recall. I'm a little fuzzy on the details now, but I wasn't aboput to let him stand up there and lie with the rest of the scouts who had no idea what they were doing.I still have the scout masters shirt, though, and I think I'll wear it to the next gay pride parade in my area.
Pincy: Rembrant_Q_Einstein: I just dropped my daughter off at a birthday party for a girl with two mommies. I forgot to ask their agenda but I am pretty sure I will be picking up a bull dyke daughter in three hours.Did you measure the length of her hair before you dropped her off? It will probably be shorter when you pick her up.
HAMMERTOE: What are they supposed to pin their new Twink badges to?
Duke_leto_Atredes: Gay pride parade, where old farts prance about in leather or spandex and demonstrate how sick in the head they are. We need to study them and finally find a cure for these sad sick people
scottydoesntknow: xanadian: If my son didn't enjoy scouting so much, I'd be VERY tempted to pull him from it...That's ok, plenty of parents on the other side have already yanked their kids out BECAUSE they had the audacity to allow gay youth to participate. Like this upstanding father:[msnbcmedia.msn.com image 600x421]He was perfectly content with making his kid cry to try and make a political statement. He didn't even tell his son why they left, only that the BSA wasn't "honoring their own law."Another parent explained to their kid that it goes against God's law, so the kid now thinks that the BSA vote to allow gay youth in was actually a vote to go for or against honoring God: "It was between honor and God, and not honoring God. And [not] honoring God got more votes."
gerbilpox: What exactly is in this "gay agenda" people keep talking about? Something like this?Post Office √Grocery shopping √Pick up laundry at the cleaners √Make cookies for the Church of Satan bake sale √Teach Boy Scouts that teh gheys aren't scumSeduce straight men into a life of sin by proposing marriage
bigstoopidbruce: We're not into scouting; it's too time-consuming. But I have lots of friends who are Baptists, Mormons, and Catholics who are serious about scouting. They're all leaving. And I don't blame them. The BSA have made a serious mistake. They have gained nothing except more bashing from queers, who will not be happy until they can openly sleep with little boys in the woods. They haven't added one scout to their ranks, they have compromised with their most basic tenets, and they have alientated millions of members and supporters. This is 100% fail.There is no point in responding to my post, I'm not going to check back to see who I have offended. I don't care what you think. I'm not a troll, I'm just sick of living in a sick world where it's OK to target little boys. I leave you all to your fate.

Somacandra: FTFA: "It has always been BSA's policy that no person, youth or adult may use Scouting to promote sexual orientation or any other political or social agenda," the letter said. "You and others are welcome to participate in the parade as supportive citizens but not as uniformed members of the BSA."[i.imgur.com image 450x358]WINNETKA, ILLINOIS - JULY 4: A troop of Boy Scouts marches in a Fourth of July Parade on July 4, 2007 with unidentified spectators in the background in WINNETKA, ILLINOIS.[i.imgur.com image 500x333]Cub Scout Pack 34 sponsored by Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church has had a very busy summer.
