The Boy Scouts of America is becoming more infamous for their discriminatory policies against openly gay students. This must stop

Much as the Catholic Church has been excessively reluctant to purge its priesthood of provable pædophiles, BSA should also tend to clearing its ranks of child-abusing filth and just teach the Scouts that sexuality is outside of Scouting and their own business, not the Scout leaders'. S&N. Until BSA scraps the homophobic rants and stance, I'll support 4H.

Since it's a private organization the Boy Scouts can choose what stance it wants to take on the issue and its members know what that stance is. If I've no liking for what a private organization wants to promote I'll not support it or join it. But if we've a liking for tolerance in society that also means tolerating private organizations that have beliefs we don't agree with.

Personally, I oppose the new proposal that the Boy Scouts of America should revoke the longstanding policy on homosexuality. An organization that teaches character, courage, and conviction shouldn't be exploited as a laboratory for sexualized political correctness. For decades, the BSA has kept the interest of the boys it serves as the focus of all its actions. No matter what, the Boy Scouts of America could be counted upon to do the right thing and not yield to any social or corporate pressure, and has thus far stood strong.

Parents should be able to entrust their sons to the organization with the confidence that they will not be exposed to inappropriate sexual topics such as homosexuality. The BSA should retain the current long-held and time-tested policy regarding homosexual leadership and membership.

Jesus does not want this to happen to our nation! Why do you call this "hatred" and "homophobia" and "intolerance" and "hypocrisy" when it is really standing strong in faith? It's like kids at school. If you don't do wrong stuff at all the time they call you a "teacher's pet" or a "goody two-shoes". It's the same principle, except on a larger scale. I am glad that gay boys and men aren't allowed. When I was a boy scout in summer camp, I know I wouldn't want to have gay boys in summer camp because I would feel more uncomfortable then I already was! The Boy Scouts are not the last of the homophobic, they are the last of the God-fearing straight standing!
