What anti-gay policy? I was a Boy Scout for about a year and was never aware of this. By the way, kids don't typically realize they're gay until well into puberty. Boy Scouts are boys.

They're banning openly-gay Scout Masters.

Ah. Makes sense.

Isn't that self-explanatory though? I mean, that's a big and necessitous precaution.

How so? Just because someone is gay doesn't make them a pedophile. And just because someone is a pedophile doesn't make them a molester. You're jumping a few steps.

Correct.

Their reasons, as far as I'm aware, are that they are a Christian organisation that believes homosexuality to be immoral.

That and a widespread, poisonous misconception that gays are more likely to be pedophiles.

My sarcasm doesn't translate very well. I was making satire of the pedophile Scout Master stereotype.

Well, sarcasm or not, it is something a lot of people actually believe.

No, we need to give boy scouts guns so they can defend themselves against gay leaders. xD

come on man, I thought we trolls don't invade each other's turf.
But in all honesty, I think they did the right thing.
If any one hates this setup, they can quit.

i personally get the idea you would also agree if they were banned from bars, get their own bathroom and have their own schools.

also you didnt even post a reason.

hint: hating them isnt a reason

How is it the right thing to hold irrational prejudice toward a group of people? The issue shouldn't be whether a group has the right to exclude people it doesn't like, it should be about the discrimination.
