May 24, 2013

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — The Boy Scouts of America threw open its ranks Thursday to gay Scouts but not gay Scout leaders — a fiercely contested compromise that some warned could fracture the......

The Ohio River Valley Council is nothing but a big joke!! Most of the so called "Leadership" don't even have boys in the program anymore. The "Leadership" acts like there precious council is an private country club. When we went to them about an youth protection issue a few years ago. We were told that we made it all up and then they tried to remove us as well. The best thing that could happen to this council is for the Pittsburgh Council to take over this council and maybe we will have some real and true Scouters running scouting in this valley. And if the council "powers that be" have a problem with this post. GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Many parents do now have the option to abort a Down's syndrome child and do so. This may be possible with gay feti as well; very soon.And other "defective" babies.

Again gay is not "normal" in humans or animals.The intention of sex- and sexual orientation- is procreation of the species.This is rather basic bio 101.

I gather the gay rights folks will block parents from curtailing gay children ,if the tech becomes available.

Yet those with the "condition"already alive should be treated fairly.They are not to be "blamed."It is a congenital defect.The current attempts to make gay "mainstream" are misguided and disruptive to the mainstream.

log:Sexual orientation is determined by a discreet brain mechanism.It is a very basic drive.If the mechanism does not properly develop or is damaged,identity is abnormal.Gays are not "normal."This is a structure-function system mal function.The structure is not developed properly; so the funtion is abnormal. This is not the fault of the indivual; just as, lets say for example, Type I diabets.retardation or eplilepsy is not. Yet is can be disruptive & controversial socially and in groups such as BSA and in families.

The current Gay rights folks seem to want to present gay as "normal." It is not.Yet should persons thus afflicted with this "disorder" be discriminated against? It would help the debate to make it clear to the public: this condition is a congential brain defect; not under the person's control.This is not a free will choice.It is a "handicap" of sorts.

An open and factual publc discusion of the condition is in order now that t

where are all the disagrees coming from?must be a lot of weird people out there.sorry about your luck but just like the military this is an organization of building boys into men.if you don't want to be a man then find something else to get into.oh mr.lawyer the other kids are picking on me.psychiatrists may tell you that this is ok or that kids are born this way but who really knows?i never met a kid that was born this way.i seen male dogs hump each other though.lets have some more disagrees.we just love them.

log:you raise an interesting point.Studies of "gay" brains at autopsey have shown undeveloped areas suggesting being gay is a congenital mal formation or lack of proper brain development in males;over development-masculinization- in lesbians. In theory, brain scans should be able to determine sexual orientation early on in a child's life. That sort of "test" may be best for all concerned. It may in the near future be possible to prevent gay babies by preventing certain abnormal hormonal states to occur in the maternal blood. Parents may be able to choose to have a gay child or not. Animal studies suggest this is possible. The politics will now be fireworks!

The"gay" brain abnormalities can not be changed once they occur in utero."The die is cast."

ato, I thought gays say they are born that way? If so then wouldn't these young gays know that they are gay? But of course if it learned, then actually no they might not be "gay" yet.

Perhaps there should be "all gay" scout troops which could have gay leaders also.Many jails, for example,segregate the gays into so called "pink" cell blocks.This may solve the problem for both sides.

Do children in cub scouts and boy scouts really know what their sexual orientation is at that age???

incompatable with GODs law also. when a hand full of folks with unusual wants can make the law force you to deny your own beliefs, progress has evolved.
