ok, this may be a bit taboo, but i felt this needed to be shared with everyone out there, as you all seem to be of the same temperment and intelligence i am.
here's the rundown.
you cannot join the scouts if you are homosexual or of any other religon than chrisitian.
right, now for the proof...
The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the Boy Scouts of America can bar homosexuals from being troop leaders.
The Boy Scouts argued that its First Amendment free speech and freedom of association rights were violated by the New Jersey high court.
The Boy Scouts insisted that it is up to them, not to any court, to decide who will be an adult Scout leader and who will not and who is an appropriate role model for younger Scouts and who is not.
Thats actually from the CNN news website...
go here if ya don't believe me
"A homosexual is not a role model for traditional family values," says Scout spokesman Gregg Shields. (Newsweek, 8/17/98)
The Boy Scouts of America is well known for their bigotry against atheists and gays - bigotry which many defend as fully compatible with American principles of liberty. One Boy Scout troop tried to extend that bigotry to include Wiccans. Curiously, this bigotry was rejected by the United Methodist Church, but supported by Scouting leaders as well as local parents.
Thus, honest Wiccans who are good people are not welcome, but liars who only pretend to believe the same things as Christians are welcome. It’s not religious diversity which Doherty and the other scouts want, but submission to Christian dominance in the Boy Scouts of America — and perhaps in America generally.
can anyone actually believe that?
but get this... this is the kicker...
as said above, the boy scouts a definied as a 'discrimatory organisation', does anyone dissagree with that?
they discriminate against homosexuality, bisexuality and religion right?
ok, as a 'discrimitory organisation' they are not allowed on public grounds right? thats the law.
scouts are not only ALLOWED on public property, but actually get federal subsidation and discounts for holding meetings on school grounds and other federal buildings.
does anyone actually agree with that?
i'm bringing it to peoples attention because i am one of many that actually feel this is wrong, you should not be allowed to advocate discrimination on school grounds and other public buildings. <-- my opinion if anyones wondering.
