Cute. I'll have you know I was a Boy Scout, and made it to Webolos before I grew tired of it. Also, my Pine box car placed 3rd in the Derby.

Miss Philicia:
I quit the boy scouts after two weeks, when they attempted to make me learn to make knots in ropes and play football.

As if!

Not to mention where I grew up being in Boy Scouts/Weeblos after a certain age was a sure sign of Loserdom.

it'll definitely be interesting to see how many Methodist, Presbyterian and Baptist churches (which all disavow homosexuality as a grievous sin) quit hosting facilities for the Boy Scouts, when the Scouts quit discriminating, or whether they continue to discriminate against gays on the sly. ;)

You don't even know what your talking about half the time, My church which is one of the largest Methodists churches in San Antonio http://www.travispark.org/mission, does not disavow homosexuality and as matter of fact many of the ministerial staff are gay, as is half the congregation. The UMC, in conjunction with Reconciling Ministries Network http://www.rmnetwork.org/  PFLAG, and Believe Out Loud is making great strides in this area of inclusion for all. I believe the Presbyterians are as well, though not sure. Baptist probably not.

So, see, not ALL disavow Homosexuality. Do your homework.
