Same sex marriage is a matter of the states, and the unions stay unrecognized on a federal level. This means that, although gay couples may derive some marriage-related tax breaks on the state level, they will not on the subject of their federal income tax. However, the "second parent adoption credit" actually gives an advantage to gay married couples over heterosexual ones. Resource for this article: *****://personalmoneynetwork****/personal-loans/

The BSA is happy hunting grounds for those who would sexually abuse boys.

No one is going to go where they are not wanted. Problem solved. what a empty comment. 11 to 30 million illegals prove to contrary.

Gooseman tried to join the TSA.

He thought it stood for "Transvestite Scouts of America."

And they called unto Lot and said unto him, “Where are the men who came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.”

Exactly Nutter: However, liberals are not interested in competition or tolerance. They are bullies who will stop at nothing to force those with differing views to agree with them or face their wrath.

After the "alternate" scout (hereinafter, the Alt-Scouts) organizastion recruits away the members from the BSA, the Alt-Scouts always have the option of offering to allow the BSA to merge with them, using whatever identification the combined group desires.

Why is this even an issue?

Can't the "alternatie" lifestyle groups form a national scouting association with whatever charter they choose to follow?

Are they somehow less capable of sustaining such an organization?

If an "alternative" scouting organizzation is in such demand, it shouldn't be hard to find the resources to form and operate it; and members would be drawn from those that previously felt excluded as well as from current scout troups that disagred with the current scout charters.

This world is totally up-side down, especially the U.S. Things like this should never come up. IDIOTS are trying to change life styles to suit their way of life.

DisplacedWVian..... Are you for allowing smoking in restaurants and or bars, mom and pop stores or even walmart???? These are all private businesses shouldn't the owners get to decide what legal activity they want in their business. Or better yet what color people they sell their products to.

Notice how all of these so-called tolerant people (liberals, gay-rights groups, et. al.) are INTOLERANT when it comes to the right of a PRIVATE organization to conduct itself the way it believes is in its own best interest.

All that they expose in these efforts is their own HYPOCRISY!

In a perfect world, sexuallity in scouting should be a non issue whether you are gay or straight. No adult leader ever discussed his or her sexual preference with me when I was a scout. I would expect similar conduct across the board regardless of prefernce. Once a scout master starts discussing it, then you can take votes on giving them the boot. Since it's not a perfect world, this should be handled on a council by council basis. No one is going to go where they are not wanted. Problem solved.

Leave the Boy Scouts alone, and let this PRIVATE organization make its own rules!

HOMOSEXUALS can take their debaucherous lifestyle somewhere else and form their own private organization and operate it anyway they choose. I'll even propose a name for their new group:

the Rump Rangers.....

why have straight people allowed the name change ? Call them what they are. Sure they have a right to be whatever they wish. But why do straight people have to listen to them all the time. Unless your really ashamed of being homosexual.I'm straight and proud of that.Thank God.

scouts who object to alternative BEHAVIOR can simply drop out and let those the gang have a gay old time. Another progressive example of greasing the squeaking wheel or be destroyed.
