My most recent exposure to the BSA and its
by Steven Haninger / December 28, 2013 6:23 PM PST

adult and youthful members shows it to be a A-1 organization where the good parts of each person seem to rub off on the others and the bad parts don't show. I could expect it would remain that way. I don't feel comfortable with deliberate and purposeful shunning though I do respect everyone's right to make their own choices. That would include allowing a young person to make his/her own decision about joining a scouting group and not trying to interfere.

gay vs homosexual activity
by James Denison / December 28, 2013 10:00 PM PST
" Under the new membership policy, youths can no longer be barred from the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or coed Venturers program solely on the basis of sexual orientation. However, gay Scouts will face some limitations.

"Any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting," says one BSA document. "No member may use Scouting to promote or advance any social or political position or agenda, including on the matter of sexual orientation.""

Boy Scouts helping to turn gay boys back to normal boys. Like Pinnochio, they "want to be a REAL boy!"

RE; they "want to be a REAL boy!"

They already are "a real boy". A boy is a young male human, usually child or adolescent. When he becomes an adult he's described as a man.

Would your son/grandson be a "real boy" (in your eyes) IF he was gay?

Loved/Tolerated......not Loved/Not Tolerated....THAT is the question. WWJD?

I guess you'd let him join since you think they are trying to turn Gays into heterosexuals....even though they claim "Any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting,"

What's sex got to do with being a boy scout? What has it ever had to do with being a boy scout? Unless it involved a perverted scoutmaster.
