The BSA is a private group. They can choose their own members in whichever manner they desire. Deal with it.
Many well-meaning people counter that the BSA is a private organization, and as such should be able to keep whomever they want out.
This is of course the same justification used to prevent minorities from eating in restaurants during the Jim Crow years. And where an organization
as revered and national in scope as the Scouts maintains and defends such a policy, it sends the wrong message to our youth, many of whom already
are struggling with their own sexual identity–an identity which has nothing whatsoever to do with their “morality,” but everything to do with
their self-esteem and happiness. Thus, while the BSA may have the “legal” right to continue to discriminate–a question I believe should be
revisited–I and others have the same “legal” right to protest the policy, till our last breaths if necessary, as blatantly discriminatory and
against everything that equality in America stands for.
yea! Let them, yes them, start there own. I am not fond of the idea that a Sandusky wanna be is "yearning" to take my boy camping
or go camping with him.
I bet the petition was explained to the people for what it truly is. Any one who signs this petition needs to also consider that their kid will be
alone with men who like males. So the posed question should be more like, "Please sign my petition." "I would love for gay men to be able to take your
son camping." "I bet that number would dwindle to nothing."
Honestly, (people without kids shouldn't answer) who would release their young child to a relative stranger that you only knew as a gay (same sex as
the child) scout master and nothing more.
Do your kids go to school? Do they play sports or other extra ciricular activity? Do they go to church? Guess what!?! You could be potentially putting
them in the care of a heterosexual pedophile.
How ignorant to think that homosexuality instantly means that you are a pedophile. There are as many heterosexual pedophiles out there as there are
homosexual pedophiles. Pedophiles, of any sexual orientation, chose jobs where they will be around little kids.
LGBT would be good to have in Scouts and other organizations because there are kids who already know they are a LGBT and they are so lost. It would be
good for them to have an adult who is LGBT to help explain what the child is going through. Maybe we wouldn't have so many kids commiting suicide
because they are LGBT or believed to be LGBT.
Maybe if you guys educated yourself and met some LGBT you would see how illogical and hateful your way of thinking is.
I agree with this, in all honesty. The one thing which I find most disturbing about homosexual advocates, is that in pushing what they
perceive as their rights....
What is perceived as their rights....I'm sorry I didn't realize another human being shouldn't have the same
rights as another human being just because of how they were born. Shoot, we got to get rid of everyone's rights. *shakes head* How ignorant of you to
deny another human being the same rights as another. What makes heterosexuals able to have rights that homosexuals can't have? Nothing other then a
bunch of fearful and uneducated people. (when I say uneducated I don't mean you aren't educated in a school sense of a way but uneducated about the
LGBT community.) Yes LGBT should be allowed to get married, should be allowed to claim estates after their loved ones pass away. There isn't a single
right that the LGBT should be denied that any other human being has.
Takei should also be willing to face the fact that just because he might be monogamous and respectable, that certainly does not mean that all
Yes because you heterosexuals do such a fine job of being monogamous and respectable, ROFLCOPTER as if!!!!! Heterosexuals have done a beautiful job of
ruining marriages and getting divorced left, right and center. So far there has only been 1 divorce in the LGBT community.
If you claim to be awake and are against homosexuality and making ignoarnt claims (like the 3 ppl I quoted), then you clearly haven fallen back asleep
or never were awake.
