And why do you want equal rights if you're different? I mean... I dont expect to be treated nicely everywhere. My personality traits, ideals,
thoughts and decisions affect directly how people will react. Theres always things I cant do, places I cant go, and even government type benefits that
I cant get based in what I am, who I am or how I am in life.
Do I complain? No. Segregation is natural.
And its common sense really - If I was gay why would I join an organization that is anti-gay and expect to be treated equal if they dont look at me as
equal? Besides... If people stop trying to change frivolous things like "gay guy not getting stupid eagle badge" and worry about the real issues at
hand, this would be a better world.
Thing is, gays dont want to be treated equal, they want "special status". This guy doesnt want to be treated equal, he wants the church to make an
exception and treat him as if he was like all the other boys there. Thing is, the church is not pro-gay. Deal with it. The damn bible even says:
"Lev 20:13 If a man also lies with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination."
So... lets see. Was he gay before joining the boy scouts? Yes. Did he read the bible and know the church's point of view and opinion regarding
homosexuality? Well I hope he did. Then why does he want to be treated "equal"? The answer is: Hes not wanting to be treated equal, he wants to be
treated differently because hes different! And the laws of men or god doesnt apply to him.
Listen if a black neighborhood has a big sign saying "NO WHITES ALLOWED", I'm not going to get in ok? I dont even want to get in. And no I wont
make a big fuss about it, because well... its their rules, if I'm not black, then I'm not going to walk in there. If I decide to do so, I'm stupid
and I deserve whatever I get. So I rather be a normal guy that understands that "people like to be surrounded by their kin" and I'm fine with
Gays have "gay bars" and "gay discos" and whatever... I dont remember seeing a "hetero disco" or a "hetero bar", that would explode in every
single news channel and crap saying "how homophobic that is" and all that jazz. But unfortunately, the Church still has its rules, and they say "No
gays allowed" - ok, fine, then... gays, dont go in there! Create your own little gay church or something - in this case, create the Association of
Gay Boy Scouts of America. And also the "Gay Day" or something - look, learn from the blacks, they even have their own college.
Stop trying to push your agenda, dont try to be "equal to hetero" because you're not. Just deal with it. As I deal when something is "closed" to
"my kin". Stop trying to force your way into acceptance. For two thousand years the church doesnt like homosexuals, why would it start to like them
Basic human rights are for everyone, blacks, whites, gay, straight etc... Basic rights. All the rest, specially closed communities, fraternities,
brotherhoods, social groups, etc are not included in these "basic human rights". Every other segregation type is allowed.
If you want to be a part of something, be sure you meet their requirements. When you dont meet the requirements then you cant be part of it.
I'm not religious, therefore I wont go to a church in specific hours because I think I'll be insulting everyone in there by my mere presence. Since
I look at churches as "art", I only go there to study them in "weak hours". I still respect religious fanatics cause they have the right to defend
what they believe in, I even respect racism, ok fine, they dont like me because I'm white, ok... people have the right to believe in whatever they
Minorities always suffer from a "me, me, and what about me" syndrome. Why force blue people to accept a red person, when all red ppl have to do is
to create their own community?
Gays are different in certain aspects - deal with that as I deal with the consequences of my "difference". I accept my difference and I dont impose
it to anyone. For instance, I have constantly to stay away from "NO SMOKING" areas. Do I feel segregated? Well yes. Is it bad? No. Just find an area
where I can smoke.
The world has far more important issues than "gay boy cant get his eagle cause its gay".
