And what would happen if the Scout Master was a pedophile.

Keeping homosexuals out of scouts doesn't keep pedophiles out.

For the Boy scout thing i was talking about a child hitting on are trying to have a relationship with another child.

Where does the stereotype that just because someone is homosexual they'll hit on everyone who's the same gender? How many people do you hit on a day? Further, where does the idea come from that a homosexual is going to push a relationship with someone who doesn't want it? How often do you keep pursuing a girl after she turns you down?

Ok first of all I am Mormon and I can not date before I am 16 years old. And if a gay kid in scouts was bothering me all the time I would kick the kid.  And the gay thing with kids in a relationship would ruin the point of Boy Scouts.

That kicking thing would only be if the kid was following me everywhere.

If a gay scout was following me I would nicely walk over to him and ask him to stop following me.

how would it ruin it? the point of scouts is to become self-reliant and to gain friendships with people who share a common bond with you. being gay doesn't factor into this equation whatsoever, and it shouldn't ruin the evening unless you do one of 2 things:

1. act extremely homophobic to him.
2.think he's attracted to you (he tends to not be) and make it really awkward.

the only reason the boyscouts have to justify their stance is the fact that it was born of a backwards thinking religious fundamentalist.

I feel that the ban/law/whatever is unjust to gays.

Now, I may have christian-ish views on homosexuality, but they shouldn't be banned from participating with other boys or being leaders. I'm totally agreeing with what's been said about gay leaders. Just because they're gay doesn't mean they're a pedophile or a molester. And I'm pretty sure a majority of those are straight in the first place.

Now, if they had a stat that said "Gays are 75% more likely to try to romantically/sexually interact with scout boys" I could understand the hesitation and ban.

....but no such stat exists. It's a simple matter of homophobia.

Get over it, I mean really. Again, I've got those christian-ish views, -ish because I don't hate/despise gays, but I've got plenty of gay guy and girl friends, and they're awesome.

No, child molesters, regardless of whether their victim was male or female, overwhelmingly identify as heterosexual.

It doesn't directly say the stats but if you do a little in depth thinking you can get a clear picture.
