The leading candidates in Washington's tight gubernatorial race both issued statements opposing the Boy Scouts of America's recent decision to retain a policy prohibiting gay Scouts and leaders.
Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna both chastised the organization for the announcement that their secret committee unanimously refused to change the discriminatory policy.

Democrat Jay Inslee and Republican Rob McKenna are
both are enablers of Pedophilia
Inslee and McKenna sound like they might be big Jerry Sandusky fans.
America is now officially in the toilet.
Indeed they are!!! And excuse me, but the USSC said they have freedom of association! Who is that “r” who is saying those things?? He is obviously a d plant.
Maybe they can organize Homo Scouties of Amerika.
McKenna opposes the legalization of same-sex marriage and believes that the legality of gay marriage should be decided by a popular vote. He supports civil unions.
McKenna is pro-choice, and wants to ensure that all pharmacies sell the morning-after pill. As a general provision, McKenna would support legislation that would require parental notification before a minor obtains an abortion. “I’m like a lot of parents,” McKenna said. “When your daughter turns 13 and the mom is kicked out of the examining room for anything related to reproductive health, it’s troubling for a lot of parents.”
Now, all the politically correct people are happy, Yes?
Fine. Invent the Gay Scouts and see how many join.
BSA didn’t do the correct thing, they dug in their heels and did THE RIGHT thing!
Brave, very brave.
Now its up to all of us to take up the slack and support the BSA with any kind of fund raising we can think of.
They are standing alone against an enormous onslaught. You can stick your finger in the eye of ACLU and the queer nation by finding a troop and helping them raise money.
Get ready to get flamers and hate mail like you never could believe.
Buy the popcorn!
Whether you like it or not, the BSA has a first amendment right TO ASSOCIATE. Which means they can associate with people of THEIR CHOOSING, and conversely, they can DISASSOCIATE with those who they CHOOSE to not associate.
Why is it sooo important for you to force yourself on people who wish to not associate with you?
Its not a criticism, but I am truly puzzled why you insist on going where folks don’t like you. When I run into people who don’t like me and wish to exclude me, I take the hint and go elsewhere!
Forcing people to accept you is not acceptance, its FORCE. And underneath, people really resent that.
Wonderful, even the Republican candidate is now siding with the homosexual take on Boy Scouts. Boy Scouts, Little League, Pop Warner, etc. have always been targets for those pushing the homosexual agenda because they believe that if they can get to those organizations, they’ll be viewed as mainstream. Their mistake is thinking that regular people will ever identify with them or their lifestyle.
I had already decided to not vote in the presidential race and now am losing Washington regional candidates one by one. Well, at least we have the anti-gay marriage initiative so I’ll still vote for that.
Gotta bucket full right here. Methinks this thread might get a little “testy.” (Pun intended)
Now that I’ve stirred the pot, I think I’ll just log off and watch.
