You hit it squarely. A friend of mine was a scout master in the Dallas area. He was permanently banned from scouting for letting his son and two of his friends sleep in the same tent with him. They were afraid he would assault the boys. Male leaders are absolutely forbidden to share their tent with anyone but other male leaders. This policy just assumed that male leaders were pedophiles. Now someone who is openly attracted to other males is going to take them camping. BSA has real problem to face. I had been a scout master for 13 years until they started openly assuming I was a pedophile. To bad scouting was great organization and truly helped the youth, straight and gay.
It doesn't help any gay youth since gays are restricted form the organization
The same rules apply to all adult leaders in scouts, male, female, gay or straight. They are not allowed to be alone anywhere with boys. This is prudent.
I was never a scout leader but my son was in Scouting. I was not even allowed to drive a carful of boys a few miles without another adult in the car.
ShouldaCouldaWoulda left because he couldn't share a tent with boys? Sounds like a good thing!

Since when must everyone comply with the LGBT committees directive. We are raising a great crop of Stalinists. Do what I tell you or we will silence you by discrediting you. And since when is chick fil a an anti-gay establishment. The owners believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, that’s not anti gay. The aren’t saying that gays aren’t welcome or they should be stoned. This is why these kind of things have no place in jr hi and hi school, these kids just don’t understand even a 10th of the issue.

This is another step in the administrations attempt to discredit trusted American institutions and get the “low information” types to believe that only “Barry” can save you from them.
So far they have thrown the FBI and Secret Service, two institutions formerly considered some of the most professional in the world, under the bus. Trashing local police every chance they get. By releasing every little controversy in military, not prosecuting the Ft Hood dufus and celebrating a traitor, they are actively trying to erode our confidence in the military.
All with the idea that only “Dear Leader” can save us with his “phone and pen”.
We all need to remember that America is first and foremost an idea and experiment in personal liberty, no matter what the laws and leaders may think. We need to choose our leaders based on their enthusiasm and dedication to that idea. Off my high horse now, lets invite radical Islamic leaders to the white house, oops already did that.

May we have all ignorant, obnoxious, loud mouth idiots please rant against their own good. Where else would she get the opportunity with no talent to be successful. I suggest she start her career in central Africa, good luck. I hear Boko Haram love women to be outspoken politically.

Who cares! This is what a 24 hr news cycle and 20 different outlets bring you. One more thing to get under your skin, if your mad your reading. Why don’t they run a story on me once a month, I can shoot my mouth off, and have just as much impact on the public as this mental dwarf. STOP

The park service should have acted 20 years ago. He clearly was swindled and doesn’t belong on the land. But now that park service has let it go this long just drop if.
Isn't there an a law if stating that if someone occupies the property for 7 years its theirs. something about adverse possession, but the govt. probably made itself exempt.

You brought corn to an asparagus fight! You brought canned vegetables to a gunfight. Why can’t we arm them with hammers and wrenches, we can throw shoes. What canned products make the best weapons? Are canned tomatoes more deadly than baked beans or cream of mushroom.
Because he is gay, or because he is liberal? I mean "journalist" is a stretch, he merely reads the news, not very well, either. He is not articulate when he speaks, he mispronounced words, and has made a few up. I think he is on Fox simply to draw the gay crowds.

“Putting their good name in the hands of a bunch of teenagers and young 20 something’s”? Have you ever met a Mormon missionary, the LDS church puts their good name in the hands of teenagers all over the world.
Don’t see very many stories of this type of thing happening with missionaries, do we? I was an LDS missionary years ago and I used to play football. There’s a big difference in attitude and atmosphere between a missionary and an NCAA football player. Once the testosterone driven adrenaline starts wisdom and prudence quickly go out the window.

All socialist believe that we are one big collective and the children are responsible to the state not the family. So sad. Maybe dad wil. Get an AR for Christmas.

I don’t know if all people choose to be gay. I believe that some do. But Willie says, he can introduce you to Jesus but only He can change hearts. That would indicate that he believes it is choice.
One final comment I don’t support gay marriage, but I am not going to stand in the way of a gay couple getting married. That does not give the couple the right to demand that I provide goods and services to them. I am tired of being bashed over the head because I “chose” to be straight.

Two things this is not hate, or hate speech, or denigrating to anyone. Two my sister is a lesbian, and you can talk about social factors and whole lot of other things, but she was different her whole life. I watched her struggle with herself and work to convince herself she was hetero, so it didn’t surprise me when she let us know her feelings. Can t help but believe genetics were somehow involved.
I believe a lot of young people choose to be gay, just out of guilt, or rebellion, or a need to be recognized as unique.
Of course it isn't hate but nonetheless there are those who will accuse it of being hate(among other things) in order to try and win consensus against it, honesty and truth hold no value to certain people. I believe there's a genetic variable in some people as well however I also believe epigenetic and environmental variables hold much more influence. I believe r/k selection theory fully explains why a very small percentage of people and animals are not attracted to the opposite gender.
I have a good friend who is bi-sexual and she admits it is by her own choice, and not due to any 'genetics' or anything else.
The continued implication that being gay is a choice perpetuates a myth that is part of a stigma. To put it simply, it's used as an excuse by people who hate gay people to justify themselves. The people who promote discrimination against homosexuals and run around saying they're deviants and/or perverts have to maintain that it is a 'choice', because otherwise they're going to look even more like human refuse than they already do.
I have never in my life met anyone, ever, who claims to be gay by choice. I have met many people who converted to Christianity and Judaism and have known more who have been so turned off by religious zealots that they have become atheists. I've also heard of many who choose to follow Islam. They have done so not to "find God" but as an effort to find a place to fit- in.

You know what makes this really wrong, is one little word “requires” if that doesn’t impinge my constitutional right I don’t know what does.

Prove he is right, it is an old liberal trick to get the other side to try and prove a negative.

This isn’t and never was a democracy. You want people to have agency as long as they agree with you. And you have opportunity to say these things exactly because it is not a democracy. See how you would be treated in the People Democratic Republic of China, or the DPRK, USSR, or DDR with your ideas. There is no utopia yet you hold out for one.
