Salem Witch: akula:The caption says they're "moving their arms with the singing of Taps" so I suspect that while it is possible that these folks don't have enough brains to fill a matchbox even without removing the matches first, 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.Ain't arguing with you there, however, I don't believe that a bunch of kids are moving their arms with the singing of Taps in such precise choreography that when that picture was taken not a single kid had a hand that was a little farther up, down, left, or fight from any other kid.
leevis: Looks pretty close to the black power salute.
JuggleGeek: But the Boy Scouts had decided to admit gays, and Ron Orr, a tall, soft-spoken man with a firm handshake, is clear about his Christian faith and what it says about homosexuality: It is a sin that cannot be tolerated.I really have trouble understanding their theory. You can forgive someone for theft, murder, rape, but "OMG, he's gay" is a sin that can't be tolerated?Leviticus does indicate it's a sin. Just like eating shrimp, eating bacon, or trimming your beard. But nobody freaks out about people that shave. Divorce is a sin, but it's also very common.Everyone sins. That's another thing the bible tells us, is that everyone is a sinner, and the Jesus died for our sins. So why do these people believe that Jesus died for all the *other* sins, but not that particular sin? Why is that sin a sin that "cannot be tolerated"?When the US military got rid of "Don't Ask, Don't tell", a lot of their priests said that they couldn't do their job because gays are sinners. I got a kick out of that. Do they really think that the non gays in the army are sin-free? lol.I'm sure there are some extremely religious folks reading the thread. I really am interested in why this one particular sin is considered unforgivable, when every other sin gets treated much differently.

peacheslatour: Oh come on, they're just trying to find Kyle!
cato113: Do they have no sense of self awareness or am I the real racist for pointing that out?
Sgt Otter: Noticeably F.A.T.: "Trail Life members move their arms as they sing "Taps" during a meeting"But yes, let's assume that we're looking at a picture of kids emulating Nazis. That'll fit the narrative much better.I've been in the military my entire adult life, and there is no "hand wave" that you do with Taps.
The My Little Pony Killer: leevis: Looks pretty close to the black power salute.To a blind person who has somehow made it through life without ever hearing of Nazis, sure./come to think of it, where is Helen Keller?
HairBolus: HairBolus:Great. Now some idiot at Fark has changed the comment editing code such that centering adds an extra blank line between every line between preview and posting.
Aquapope: Stinkyy: No one is born a homosexual. This is not true, but this is considered a good and natural thing. But just try pointing out that Everybody is born an Atheist! That will get you a whole lot of nowhere.
mongbiohazard: Many years ago I got legally ordained through the back of the Weekly World news and I performed two weddings for friends - albeit straight friends. The process was...... hilariously easy, but just to be on the safe side we had both couples get married by the county clerk's office too, quietly before the weddings. I then did the ceremony as the officiant. It was pretty fun, though also a bit stressful.CSB: at the reception for the first one I did, the gigantic oak of a man who was their bartender - and Irish catholic - was keeping his eye on me while I was hobnobbing and drinking. Any time he'd see my glass getting low he'd halt the line of people at the bar, then rush out and fill my glass to the brim with a playful sounding, "Here you go father." (I did dress the part, with a collar and all) I was quickly completely blotto. I don't remember the videographer coming around to me, but my friends say he did, and I'm on his video quite blatantly totally and completely shiatfaced saying, "I just... I just... I love these guys... They're like my best friends... I love these guys, man!!" and etc.... I was embarrassed, but they were highly amused. I didn't cause a scene or anything, I'm a curiously self-controlled drunk.
Stinkyy: By Brian FisherTRUTH # 1Homosexuals molest children at far higher rates than heterosexuals.Absolutely true. Homosexuals comprise perhaps two percent of the population, yet according to the Journal of Sex Research, homosexual pedophiles are responsible for 33% of all child sex offenses. Homosexuals molest children at at least 10 times the rate of heterosexuals.
Stinkyy: Wow, looks like the abnormals are out to pene this group just as much as they did the BSA. Those homos really want to be around our kids.
hotrod2001: Been a scout for over 20 years, "morally straight" to me always meant being straight with your decisions, your ethics, your morals...not necessarily "straight" orientation. Churches abandoning scout troops because of this and taking away a place and group that kids, a lot of which don't have a lot of other options other than getting into crime or gangs, to me is more off-moral than being inclusive.
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.
BKITU: antidisestablishmentarianism: GODWINED... and dined?
