I Hope They Do

07 Jun

The Boy Scouts found themselves under siege again about their policies against homosexuals and, as a result, are reviewing changes to their policy (http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/06/12086046-boy-scouts-review-controversial-anti-gay-policy?lite).

It’s my belief that they’ve had their heads in the sand for a very long time and their continued prejudice no longer makes sense because, hmm, being homosexual does not mean you cannot be an upstanding citizen or a damned good Scout.

Besides, with homosexuality coming out of the closet as much as it has been doing, how are you going to shield Scouts from the fact that it exists?  I don’t think it’s possible so all they could continue to do is keep trying to instill homophobia into its members and continue their bigoted practices against well-meaning adults who genuinely want Scouts to be the best people they can be… because doing this and one’s sexuality have nothing to do with each other – and it shouldn’t.

And, really, if you’re about turning boys into fine, upstanding citizens, filling their heads with anti-gay sentiments just produces more prejudice and bigotry, wouldn’t you agree?

    It is not about anti gay sentiments it is about protecting boys. I was used and abused as a kid by a priest and another gay guy. I don’t want gay guys being leaders for that age group. Obama’s education czar had a teen boy come to him and tell him about a gay teacher having sex with him and he did not even think to report it even though he is a mandatory reporter and it was statutory rape. If that makes me a homophobe then guilty as charged

      Surely you know that one (or two) bad apples don’t spoil the whole bunch; not all gays are pedophiles and, yes, a lot of them are upstanding citizens despite their sexuality. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that you’re homophobic and I recognize why you’d have a bias, though. But, not all homosexuals are bad people, just like all people who drink aren’t alcoholics. The sins of one cannot and should not be contributed to everyone who’s like this – that’s being intolerant and while we, as Americans, do have the right to be intolerant if we want to be this, too, sends the wrong message to young, impressionable minds.

      Not to mention that “that age group” probably knows more about homosexuality than the BSA is willing to admit.
