i'd say conviction is a lack of perspective.

If ending a discriminatory policy causes the BSA to fall apart then good riddance.

Turned them away how, Panthro? Did you bar individuals, or just the organization? If your church has banned anyone involved in the Boy Scouts, that's... extreme, I think. but if instead, your church refuses to deal with the organization itself, that is quite a bit different from what the Boy Scouts are doing, IMO. I don't think anyone is asking the Boy Scouts to organization to organize gay rights protests and the like (not that I would object), but exclusion of the individual for things out of his control is really unfair, I think.


They wanted to pay us to use our church for meetings. We told them basically thanks but no thanks...

The leaders are afraid mostly because all the guys with gaydar will be in their meetings and uncover the "secret" concerning their fetish for dressing in uniforms that include neckerchiefs surrounded by young boys wanting them to take them camping.

I certainly hope this is a joke.

I am an Eagle, and honestly I don't know enough about the situation to chime in. Can someone please paraphrase what is going on?

Changes like this would have been unthinkable only a few years ago. Our relatively cloistered existence prior to the internet has hopefully been relegated to the dust bin of history.


Internet does seem to help.
