markie_farkie: Next up, Mein Kampfire Girls...
cato113: Do they have no sense of self awareness or am I the real racist for pointing that out?
BKITU: antidisestablishmentarianism: GODWINED... and dined?
FirstNationalBastard: [25.media.tumblr.com image 240x350]
Zarquon's Flat Tire: I've seen Brokeback Mountain and I won't have my boys getting into the "Trail Lifestyle". You'd be spooking the horses all the damn time anyway.What do you mean that's not the gay one?
peacheslatour: Oh come on, they're just trying to find Kyle!
fusillade762: Sounds like they're taking their ball and going home.[31.media.tumblr.com image 300x170]
Chunks McGunks: I'll never understand how these assholes can assume they know what god wants and still all them Christians. I think if there is a christian god, he's more complex than "I hate them gays. If you let them into boyscouts you're evil hurrr."
akula: it is also entirely possible that of any number of photos that were taken that one is the most damning when removed from any context. But that depends on the news media ripping a photo out of context without informing the public. And we all know that would NEVER happen.

fusillade762: Ah, the good ol' Bellamy salute.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 370x290]
leevis: Looks pretty close to the black power salute.
mongbiohazard: OH COME ON! Seriously?!?!? The frigging Nazi salute? There's absolutely 100% no farking way that the folks inventing this group have any confusion about EXACTLY who they're emulating. That is not unintentional.This is the face of christianity which is souring people on the church. Yes, I am well aware that many believers are as disgusted as I am by the rise of satanic, christianity-twisting, blasphemous evangelicals like this - the folks who hate gays so much they are obsessed about ostracizing them in every way they can get away with. But these folks are the ones who are out there getting the attention for the faith. And they're not just a tiny fringe, this is modern "evangelical christianity" - what a large swath of American christians believe in. They've successfully steered the course of public discourse to the point that they are now the mainstream public view of what christianity stands for in America, and that for some reason our public policies are supposed to kowtow to this vile poison of christian teachings.I don't believe in the devil, but if I did I'm sure you could rest assured that he'd be quite supportive of their efforts and firmly a member of the evangelical community. There'd be no better way he could steer the faithful away from the teachings of Jesus.
tkil: enry: Goddammitsomuch/Eagle scoutThis might actually be a very good thing: if all the really extreme right-wing types leave BSA, then maybe BSA can become more accepting. Not holding my breath, but anything that can help revert the stranglehold that various christian-ish religions have on the BSA can only be a good thing.I already had to leave BSA due to my [lack of] religious beliefs; the anti-homosexual stuff was just one more reason to stay away -- and that pisses me off, because I feel that I had some good times and learned some useful lessons through my time in scouting (Eagle in 1990, Nat'l Jamboree 1989, World Jamboree 1991). I wish my kids could have had some of those same experiences, but I couldn't stomach the necessary hypocrisy.
Lorelle: Sitting next to Orr during the meeting, White began to cry as he described what his son said: "I wanted to go with what God would want."His voice wavered."It made it clear that we had taught him what he needed to know," he said.ORLY??John 13:34-35: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.Funny, it doesn't say anything about hating gay people.
