    This is ridiculous. According to the article a decrease in donations may be to blame for this decision. Money is forcing this American institution to change its core values. Wonder if it's too late to donate...

    Sounds like the people are voting with their money. Something many on this forum advocate daily.

    I know ill be sending in a donation if this goes through.

    Hey, as a life long practicing Roman Catholic, I can tell you first hand what happened when the Church lifted it's ban on gay clergy back in the '60's. Many families were greatly harmed, and it will take many, many decades to repair the damage. I don't think the Boy Scouts will be able to survive the inevitable lawsuits.

    I thought that was more of a Pedophile problem.

    Exactly. Some people still don't know the difference between child molestation and someone who is simply gay.

    :popcorn: for sure. Could be interesting.

    Article says they're loosing corporate funding, not that individuals are voting with their money. I didn't realize the BSA was having a problem with funding but I'll vote w/ my money. Every bit helps.

    I'm not familiar w/ BSA charter so I don't know how to feel about local control of this issue. If the national BSA makes policy for everything else then kicking this to the local level seems like a cop out. If local BSA's generally make their own policy and BSA is only a loose federation then I suppose local control makes sense. Either way, I'll send some cash.

    Most child molestation is done by gays. It's a politically incorrect fact that the main stream media will never acknowledge. This is not to say all gays are pedophiles (indeed most are not)

    There's your "tolerance" in action. Only tolerate liberal ideals and values........everything else is unacceptable.

    You forgot to post the link to the research to support your claim.

    Hmm, well having dealt w/ more child molesters in my life than you could possibly imagine (granted, I don't sit and interview them).. I feel fairly certain I've met way more "straight" child molesters than gay ones.

    You are so wrong. I won't get into this because I don't have the time to correct your crap. Please do a bit more research instead of relying upon the Anita Bryant playbook.

    Start here.
