There is a rule against pedophilia, too. Should we not ‘conform’ to that societal norm?
You do understand that society's norm do change over the years don't you? It's really only somewhat recently, and because of the media's machinations
to sell newspapers, that pedophilia is unacceptable and everybody's paranoid over it.
For example, did you know that by today's standards, Charlie Chaplin would be considered a pedophile? One of his wives, one Lita Grey, was 16 when
they married. People didn't bat an eye.
And in the 1800s, it was common for a fifteen year old girl to marry a much older man.
When the hubbub over pedophilia dies down, unless the media uses it to carry more news papers, I think people could realize how silly they've been.
Don't get me wrong, I'm against sexual molestation, but right now there is a huge over reaction to it in America.
What a load. There are many differences between individual boy scouts. It’s convenient that you dodged all of the relevant arguments opposed to
homosexuals sleeping or showering with heterosexuals.
Those were completely irrelevant to my point about discrimination and receiving public funds. And many Boy Scouts do have to hide some of their
personality or risk being ousted because they don't follow the beliefs of the BSA or the just don't fit in for whatever reason. I was kicked out of
the BSA because I was hyperactive and it was hard to control me.
Keep pushing the agenda…as long as it’s OK by you and the left that’s all that matters, right?
My only agenda is to end wrongful discrimination. You obviously haven't read my position: If the BSA wants to receive public funding then it should be
completely open to the public and not discriminate. If it wants to be a private organization, it should be funded only by private funding. If the BSA
was a completely private organization, which it claims to be, I don't care if it doesn't want to allow homosexuals or atheists or whatever. I believe
in the right to privacy and the right of association. As long as they want to remain a private organization.
After all, public business and places are not allowed to discriminate against people, or have you forgotten that? It's wrong to be a private
organization and receive public funding while discriminating against people. It's hypocritical.
You really should follow your own statements about personal attacks, and not personally attack somebody just because you disagree with them, and not
put words into people's mouth.
