Just because someone doesn't condone a behavior doesn't make them hate anyone. As far as likening sexuality to color, that is ridiculous. Sexuality is a choice, color is God-given.
Are you serious?!

So I guess you "choose" to be straight? That is the dumbest argument for being gay that there is.

lhafer, I don't get your point.

In the US it's too bad that girls aren't allowed in scouts. It's not an organization for boys, but for kids, and everyone can benefit from it.

Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada. Scouts Canada |

Well I am openly bi, and it's a choice for me who I want to be with. I'd say that the vast majority of gay guys are actually bisexual, who choose to have sex with other men. I make that choice when I'm looking for more intensity and I'll just leave it at that!!

Also, I can remember being fully aware of my sexuality around age 15 or 16, and at that time some 15 year old twinks = . Sorry, just had to say it because it's true. Just like how all straight men are completely turned on by high school girls.

I also find it hilarious the amount of rabid froth a bunch of offended straight people are spewing out. The issue has nothing to do with you, yet you're all riled up while most gay and bisexual people don't even give a F. You white folks are a hoot!

Interesting that this thread is primarily about peoples personal feelings about being gay and gayness and has little or no content of the Boy Scout program and what good things it has to offer todays young men.

Let's all focus on one little tiny miniscule part of the whole giant overall picture and get our pants in a wad about it.
Most of the stuff spouted by both sides in this thread is just plain ridiculous.

Why not just rename the thread "Gays in Houston"?
It has more to do with perceptions of gay folks than the Boy Scouts.

That's okay, I don't get your point either. Canada is not the US. We don't have the same healthcare system either. Scouts are together there. Scouts are separated by gender here. There's boy scouts and girl scouts in the US.

I was in the cub scouts as a child. It was lame. I was happy to see California yank their tax exempt status.

BINGO. Gay does not = sexually promiscuous or even remotely interested in you.

It's unbelievable how many homophobes are afraid of the gay guy wanting to jump their bones. Newsflash: gays have sex with other gays.

For those of you who agree with it, feel free to keep your kids in Boy Scouts. For those of us who don't, we can choose not to participate.

Personal attacks, name-calling, and general bashing aren't necessary.

Luckily, there are other options for kids today that honor Christ. It makes it easy to find alternatives for those of us who choose not to be bullied by progressives.

+1 & more if I could. I just don't understand where anyone thinks that "being gay" is a choice. Where is the logic? (and what does this have to do with Houston?)

Yet, you just called progressives bullies.
