All I can think of is the Star Trek episode that the kids are all normal until puberty when they turn into weird and dangerous Grups.

      Probably has a lot to do with the homophobic idea that all gay men are pedophiles.

          I get that, but the logic completely defies me. If you are letting these kids progress through the ranks the organization says they have learned the right stuff to move up. Do you unlearn that? Does the organization, which prides itself on building character, think they are doing a poor job training them?

              I do not think logic is a strong suit of those who discriminate against homosexuals. If anything, I think homosexual individuals who grew up in this country would be the best at teaching children how to build character. In my experience, for all the **** they are put through, they are among the strongest people I know.

                      I assumed he was talking about the Star Trek episode.

                        Understandable, yet regrettable that the Boy Scouts crumble under the extreme pressure they were put under. But such is what America has become. I'm sure they'll cave the rest of the way soon, as those pushing these agendas brook no disagreement with their views.

                          Regrettable? Why is this regrettable?

                            If I have to explain it to you, you won't understand. Plus, I know from past conversations you know exactly what I mean. You're just trying to pick a fight. No thanks. Been there, done that around here. No point to doing it over again.

                            I expect to see the Scouts decline from here on out. Just like the mainline denominational churches that went PC and endorsed the trendy social agendas of the day and they've been in decline every since. In the Scouts case, the math is even more compelling. 70 percent of Scout troops are sponsored by churches, with large chunks sponsored by folks like the Southern Baptists, Catholics, and Mormons. But, as is always the case in this sort of push of an agenda, the kids are the ones that will lose out.

                              Yeah, just like the military declined when they kept pace with societal changes.
