    Why would they? It's not a change in Canada, Boy Scouts of Canada have never had a rule against gay members, they're not as awful as the Boy Scouts of America.

    Yeah, my ex-evangelical boyfriend went to Christian boy scouts. His evangelical mother thought the Boy Scouts were way too Godless. I don't buy that the Boy Scouts would die based on the gays being allowed in. Most of the gay men I know were once Boy Scouts. It churns them out, ladies. In fact, I can't think of anything much gay-er than the Boy Scouts, except maybe Smith College and the theater.

In fact there are a whole group of special awards that can be earned based on religious values. The majority of these troops will not stay in the scouts if this rule changes, just as they didn't in Canada.

    And all of the churches where I come from refuse to give out badges to Boy Scouts because of their anti-gay policies.

    36 a man?s enemies will be the members of his own household.

    37 ?Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

It's like a little kid saying if you don't let me in I am going to destroy your club so you can't have it either.



    Boy Scouts of America and the dismantling of core values - The Washington Post
    I think that its so sad that they say that homosexual conduct is immoral to the boy scouts but diddling little boys is a-ok. That's really the main reason I wouldn't let my son be a scout, today. I don't know what goes on in your bible belt, but the idea of adults playing around below MY sons belt, and other adults covering it up, is not kosher with me. And lets not forget,

    95% of known Pedophiles are heterosexual
    Pedophilia and Child Sexual Molestation

    Boy Scouts 'Perversion' Files Show Locals Helped Cover Up Child Sex Abuse By Scoutmasters

    Just one (of thousands!) of examples of the Scouts and the church working together. If this is their version of "morally straight" my sons and I will stay crooked, thank you please.

    Clark also alleged that though the Scout leader was removed, he was allowed to stay on as a volunteer and the abuse continued. In 1983, the assistant Scoutmaster told troop leaders he abused 17 Scouts, according to plaintiff's attorneys.
    In its verdict, the jury held the Boy Scouts of America 60% negligent; the Cascade Pacific Council, which oversees Scouting activities in the region, 15% negligent; and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 25% negligent.
    The church has sponsored a number of Boy Scout troops, including the one to which the plaintiff belonged. A lawyer representing the church said then that the verdict had no impact on the church, because it settled the case out of court more than a year earlier.

    100% of male pedophiles that rape boys in the Boy Scouts are homosexual.

    The reason 95% of pedophiles are heterosexual is because most pedophiles are men and 95% of men are heterosexual so they molest girls instead of boys.

    Gloria, I know that that is what you have to believe because of your biblical views on homosexuality, but it simply isn't what science tells us. I'm sorry. Please take the time to read this, or any one of the multitude of studies like it.

    Facts About Homosexuality and Child Molestation

    Your views make you a bit of a dinosaur, actually.

    Public belief in
    the stereotype
    The number of Americans who believe the myth that gay people are child molesters has declined substantially. In a 1970 national survey, more than 70% of respondents agreed with the assertions that "Homosexuals are dangerous as teachers or youth leaders because they try to get sexually involved with children" or that "Homosexuals try to play sexually with children if they cannot get an adult partner."1By contrast, in a 1999 national poll, the belief that most gay men are likely to molest or abuse children was endorsed by only 19% of heterosexual men and 10% of heterosexual women. Even fewer – 9% of men and 6% of women – regarded most lesbians as child molesters.
    And those numbers are from 15 years ago, I imagine with the continued education and exposure we all have they have dropped substantially more from there.

    AS to your assertion that 100% of the men (apparently morally straight scout leaders who had themselves sworn their scout oath, husbands, fathers, and scouts themselves) who molested or had sexual contact with or raped little boys or young men and then were sheltered and protected by the scouts......could you please prove how you are 100% certain that they are homosexual?

    I do understand that these may be the people that you are listening to

    I think that these people are scary and sadly confusing their political position with actual facts.

    I don't have to prove anything. The definition of homosexual is sex between the same gender. So 100% of men who rape boys are committing a homosexual act. That is a fact. How they identify themselves doesn't matter.
