Don't allow gays in Scouts

  • Follow Letters

As a former Scout member, I would like to somehow vote for Scouting to maintain its current membership policy, and not bow down to pressure from the gay community to allow open or avowed homosexuals, or anyone who engages in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Scout Oath calls for members to do their duty “to God” and to stay “morally straight.” The Scout Law states that a Scout is “reverent.” The majority of Americans adhere to the beliefs of the Holy Bible, in which the God of this Bible speaks against the homosexual lifestyle. Therefore, if the BSA changes its membership policy to include the gay agenda, then it must change its Scout Oath and Scout Law. If not, confusion would rule the BSA world.

If you cannot stand for something, you will fall for anything. This is not about judging others, but it has everything to do with what has worked all these years. And it is about fighting for one’s beliefs.

One solution: Let the gay community form its own Scouting organization. Then they would be acting like the BSA, whose agenda does not include merit badges for trying to force its beliefs/lifestyles onto the gay community.

Your turn to answer..............still.

I'm not cutting out on this conversation; the paper, every now and then, tells me I've had my quota of comments for the day.

"If someone has sex with someone of the same sex then they are homosexual.....even if that person is me."

Even if all their other sexual experiences are "straight?"

And your answer is "Yes."

You are saying that one homosexual experience (if you are straight), or one straight experience (if you are homosexual) changes one's entire sexual orientation?

I'm not accusing you of fooling around; you obviously haven't, or if you have you've not learned anything from it.

But tell me, just exactly where did you get this kind of sexual learning?

I once had a friend of mine

I once had a friend of mine (who is gay) tell me "Everyone has a little gay in them", going on to say if I allowed him to do certain things to me, I would get a REACTION, and you know what I mean. He was a paramedic and I used to see him all the time in the line of duty. He loved my uniform. I felt perfectly at ease with him and liked him very much. He is a good guy, and I have no beef with him.

My point is, he constantly and openly "hit" on me. I didn't get offended and joked with him about it. BUT, I'm not attracted to men in the least bit. IF I would have allowed him to "do certain things" maybe touching me, would I have had a REACTION? Maybe, I don't know but I wouldn't allow it to get that far. He also told me once that having ANYONE do it with you, is better than doing it yourself. Trying to convince me that it was ok. Well, I've got a little more self control than to just DO IT with anyone. I'm not so self absorbed that I will be with ANYONE to get "mine". I personally know men, even partners of mine, who will sleep with absolutely ANY woman that comes along; well that isn't me either. I'm not risking my health to sleep with just ANYONE, to pleasure my personal desires. Pleasure is a wonderful thing, trust me, I have no problems with it. But as with everything else in life, moderation should implemented. We should let ANYTHING control our behavior!!

So, to answer the question; yes I do believe for someone to have a "one time" sexual experience, they must be homosexual, or at the least bi-sexual which is basically the same thing, or worse. Bi-sexuals are just very selfish people that will sleep with anyone for their personal pleasure. Personal pleasure is NOT the most important thing in the world, but humbling ones self and self discipline, might just be.

Yes, you did cut the conversation out; completely avoiding her question because you COULD have answered in that last post, even with coming to your last page. Why not answer in that last post? Because YOU CAN'T; there is no logical answer that wouldn't hurt your position.

Unpublished

dahreese.....apparently you don't get how this works. I have answered all of your questions and even posted dictionary definitions that prove that your assertions are not true, yet all you do in response to MY questions is pose more questions. Why not just answer them simply and honestly? I suspect that myfather15 is correct.

BTW...there is no quota for the day if you pay the paltry subscription.

Let's take this a bit at the time.

You are "not attracted to men."

And by the same token, you are not attracted to women?

"Well, I've got a little more self control than to just DO IT with anyone. I'm not so self absorbed that I will be with ANYONE to get "mine".

Or you're careful who you're with, or you're not experienced, or you are extreamly careful who you're with? (which is smart).

Is that where the "Humble" comes from in "Humble Angela?"

What are you talking about?

What are you talking about? And why do you STILL not answer questions? You just used up 2 of your free posts to not answer the question, and pose MORE questions....just as I pointed out earlier. You keep on proving me correct.

Make up your mind, are you straight or homosexual?

And WHERE, for god's sake, did you EVER get the idea that if a straight person has a homosexual experience that makes them homosexual (and by implication if a homosexual person has a straight sexual experience that makes them straight?), and bi-sexual people are [sexually] "selfish?"

Are these idea out of some book you've read, the ideas of some "self-called" preacher, or just your own "understanding?"

"Make up your mind, are you straight or homosexual?"

Again..what are you talking about? Your nonsensical responses are starting to make me think you must be a bot.

Ok, so you don't have the courage or the ethics to clarify that you are either straight, or homosexual. I imagine by now even some of your supports on here are beginning to wonder.

Even then, WHERE, for god's sake, did you EVER get the idea that if a straight person has a homosexual experience that makes them homosexual (and by implication if a homosexual person has a straight sexual experience that makes them straight?), and bi-sexual people are [sexually] "selfish?"

Are these idea out of some book you've read, the ideas of some "self-called" preacher, or just your own "understanding?"

I'm straight...I was
Unpublished

I'm straight...I was wondering what you meant by "Make up your mind, are you straight or homosexual?" And what you meant when you said I was calling someone selfish...which I never did. It's difficult to follow your posts when you keep coming up with things like this out of the blue. You even put quotes around certain words as if you were quoting me on things I never said.

I will point out that once again, instead of answering a single simple question, you just pose more questions of your own. Are you afraid to answer?

He was just confused as usual. The quotes from his last couple comments were from ME, not you. You never said any of those, I did. But, he still avoided your questions, no excuse for that. Oh well.
