    More political pandering to "groups"! More divide and conquer. More stirring up controversey, because controversey can generate revenue and political contributions. More politics and usual. Nothing new here.

    @hankf68 Yep, anything that creates emotional controversey is exploited by politicians, to divert attention away from their failed economic and social policies and other even more sinister agendas.

    What next....government forcing churches to sponsor Boy Scout troops? Maybe Barack Husssein Obama will give special consideration to corporations that sponsor Boy Scout troops.

    To quote a comment on The Atlantic Wire's website:

    "Obama is proving that a politician will say anything to get someone's vote. I don't believe that Obama actually supports gays. He's just saying what he needs to say. If he did support them, it would have been his stance all along."

    Need I say more?

    Wouldn't surprise me if BO would recomend a 'Larry Sinclair Merit Badge '. To earn it , one must take a ride in a limo , do some blow (as BO said in his own book) & allow an 'alternative lifestyle' individual to perform certain acts upon your 'person'. LMAO.

    Why can't they start their own club? Cat lovers don't join a dog club. Bird watchers don't join the butterfly club. If they are gay or lesbian, can't they make their own lesbian girl scouts and gay boy scout clubs and leave the others alone?

    Boy Scouts are a "Title 36" corporation. Per this title, outside of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, no other youth organizations may use the term "scouts" or "scouting" in their name.

    What I'm saying is that I'm tired of all of the P.C. bull crap. Oh little Johnny's feelings is hurt so you have to change your rules. B.S! We've had groups who have been doing things the same way for years and why should they have to change because of a few? Once again. If they want a group like the boy scouts, then start their own club.

    The questions for the POTUS at Superbowl should of been about football. I have one I know would have stumped Obama...."Mr. President, which end of the football should you hold when making a pass?"........<silence ....blank stare>

    Are not these interviews supose to be light hearted about the game? Why would Scotty ask a question like this? Was he given the questions to ask by the administration prior to the interview? I Have a great question for Obama. Did Ray Lewis act stupidly when he fled the country with the bloody suit he was wearing after participating in a double murder in 2000?

    We act like gays aren't already in the BS all support does is prevent them from hiding their sexuality. Now I am not sure why we need to announce our sexuality to everyone but you shouldn't be barred because of it. That said, does anyone know if the NAACP allows Caucasians and Asians? If we are going level the field then it needs to be done everywhere.

    Again, I really don't understand the desire to belong to this organization. Why would you want to be a part of this archaic, outdated and lagging behind organization?
    Their numbers today are half of what they were in 1972 when they were at their peak. Boy Scout membership is down by 11% over the past decade and the Cub Scouts have seen a 23% drop in the same time.
    My advice would be to move on and find something bigger and better. Let the dinosaur die out on its own, pathetically alone where no one cares. I for one will cheer when it happens, good riddance.

    Perhaps the atmosphere of exclusion is what have driven down the numbers.
    Wouldn't it be a hoot if this decision led to an increase in membership?

    Until it is clearly established that there is no relationship with pedophilia and homosexuality, gays should not be in the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts of America and parents have an obligation to be cautious. This isn't about votes, campaign funding, and feel good legislation.

    It's already been established that the majority of pedophiles are heterosexuals.
    Do you remember a few years ago when the Boy Scouts resisted releasing those files of sexual abuse of boys by adult leaders? Ummm, they were mostly Married heterosexuals.
    There is a bigger risk with straight men becoming predatory.

    Well, in that case, there are gay teachers, gay parents, gay nurses, gay doctors, etc. If parents are worried about gay Boy Scout leaders, they are being naive as to how much exposure their kids already have to gay people. Being gay does not make a person a pedophile.

    @Keyjo 90% of the population is straight. It would stand to reason that most pedophiles are straight. Yet this is something that greatly bothers me about the gay community. You insist that "straight men" are molesting boys. You have no proof of that. Straight men don't want sex with boys or men. It's just that simple. Just because someone is a married person does make them hetrosexual. They are, at the very most, bi-sexual and as such are considered your peers in the LGBT. Just because a predator is hiding behind his marriage, gay or straight does not change their basic sexual orientation. If they changed the laws tomorrow that sex was fine with 10 year olds and up, and I was massively pursued by 10 year boys and girls I would not have any interest in the boys. I wouldn't in the girls either because they're too young but my point is that I am straight and if it was legal and societal acceptable and "everyone did it", I still would have no interest in boys. Those are bi sexual that you call "married heterosexuals".

    As a sister of a gay pedophile and a victim of his friends, I can say whatever I want. The public feels the same way but are too intimidated to say it out loud. This is a forum for free speech. Listen and take your own counsel.

    No, he is wrong, they are a private organization, and while they should do the right thing it is still their call.

    I think any private organization should be allowed to set their own guidelines and not be controllled by public policy. Have you saw the tv ad for the dating website only for black people I think it was "black people meet." Has anyone protested this, I have no problem with it but a white only dating website would be called racist and bigotted. The Boy Scouts should als be allowed to set guidelines for admission.

    @Fishbone345 I once heard this: "If you put a million monkeys on a million typewriters, A Shakespeare will be found " The internet has surely proven this statement wrong!

    The Boy Scouts do make their own guidelines. They have that right. Americans also have the right to express their opinion on those guidelines and give/remove their support based on said guidelines.

    @Fishbone345 This site is not advertised nor is it the whole site www.iDating4you.com says on its homepage that it is for everyone but you can have subgroups based upon your preferences. The home page actually shows pictures of minorities as well as whites. Therefore the site that is not advertised on national television allows you select white only, black only whatever else you are or are interested in.
    It is not white only and does not advertise that it is, it actually advertises its diversity.
    Go back and look at the site after you delete the / and everything after that. Then learn about website extensions and how they differ from the whole website itself.

    Scout Law - "A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent." Sounds gay to me.

    I hate to contradict those who think the BSA is somehow a private entity that is privately funded, and therefor has the right to do whatever they please. The BSA is closely tied with public law enforcement, and receives both in-kind and direct cash taxpayer support. Unless that stops, and and everything they have received to date is refunded to taxpayers (we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars), they have to comply with state and federal anti-discrimination laws, just like everyone else, btw.

    I'm shocked by some of the filthy posts on here. They remind me of racist jokes I've heard people say growing up. Don't tell me that anti-gayness is not on the same level as racism. It's still a form of prejudice and bigotry.

    I believe Obama is using this tactic to push his politics and not worrying about the most important items in America. A lot of Black Ministers are getting fed up with this in addition most of everyone.

    This is a private organization and should be able to decide who it let's in and not give in to your liberal attitudes.It's not funded by the gov. and if you had a son under gay leadership would you let him join the scouts. I think not.
