I am not Libertarian, but I think this is just stupid. Why would the Boy Scouts even put kids in this position. Sure not every gay person is going to molest kids, but even if one does it is not feasible to have this. As a Catholic, I totally am against this and gay marriage for that matter. My Facebook account makes me sick today. All the stupid red equal signs are giving me a headache. What on Earth is happening to our country?????

I consider myself a “natural law” libertarian.

Having “gay” men take teen boys camping in the woods is the same thing as sending horny guys to take pubescent girl scouts camping in the woods.

As a previous poster said, “What could go wrong”?

Only a Leftist could believe this is a good thing.

I’m not necessarily a libertarian but as someone who
was molested by a scout master I would have to say
NO!

The libertarian point of view is that private organizations should be free to do any thing they want. Beside the parents of the Scouts it’s nobody’s business how they pick their leaders.

That is indeed the correct Libertarian position - based on libertarian philosophy. I wonder if it is where most libertarians come down on it however.

I am sure that Libertardians see nothing wrong with pedophiles taking kids to the woods overnight.

Why don’t they start their own scouting organization?

Because they want to recruit YOUR kids.

Not to worry. Libertarians want, above anything, no government intervention in individuals lives.

Boy Scouts must never be forced into any social control through coercion or influence of any kind. Government initiation of force against peaceful citizens is an anathema to libertarians.

That is the small "l" opinion since I have not traveled in those circles in a number of years, but LP.org has the current platform with all applicable planks.

As a private organization, they are free to choose who is a member. However, on the other hand, private, free citizens are also free to express their opposition to this by walking out. I have a feeling the latter will far outweigh the former.

Half of gay men are gay because they were molested as kids, at least those wwho admit it. It is the #1 recruitment method

A better question is “Should the Boy Scouts be forced to accept homos as scout leaders?” Is it not their choice?

The real problem is you will have to tell the kids he deserves the same treatment as any hetero leader....and when the homo makes a gesture to a kid and the kid says leave me alone....well you know....the kid is now deemed a homophobe ...according to the world of homos.

Suurrrre...and pyromaniacs should be firemen, and sadists should be doctors, and drug addicts should be pharmacists oh- and people who believe in killing the elderly should run nursing homes.

H E L L N O! Didn’t Penn State’s sacrifice of children to the Great God Football teach anyone anything??
But you know- if they have perverts as scoutmasters all families have to do is NOT put their kids in scouting.No victims that way- unless grown men want to join and scout each other all over the forest. No kids= no Scouting.

The libertarian standpoint is that it is the position of the Boy Scouts to decide.

My personal opinion agrees with the libertarians, but at the same time there is no chance on God's green earth that I would put any son of mine in the same troop with a male homo scoutmaster for the same reason I would not want any daughter of mine on a camping trip overnight in the woods with a straight man who isn't the dad of her friend who is also there.

For obvious reasons.

I would guess you would be in favor of state enforcing specifications for leaders on the Boy Scouts. As long as you could draft the specifications.

The concept of a double edged sword is completely beyond your ken isn’t it?

Libertarians support the left’s agenda of gay marriage, homosexuals in the military, abortion, open borders and such, and they support politics and politicians who support those things, regardless of which party they align with, so in the big picture, they are part of the momentum and political and cultural energy of the left.

The libertarians response to FORCING the BS to have homosexual leaders is that no, they are a private organization, but the political EFFECT of the libertarians, is to support social liberals in elections and social liberalism culturally, and to fight Christianity and traditional, social conservative, Americanism.
