    The homosexual agenda made the Scouts an issue when they presumed to tell a private religious organization that they could not prohibit homosexuals in the Scouts.

    The Boy Scouts also don't permit atheists.

    No, not everyone ignores the fact that BSA is not a Christian organization.
    Would you show us where in the Koran it says that Muslims condone homosexuality or are to?
    How about in the Hebrew Bible?

    There is no such thing as a homosexual agenda. That a religious extremist buzz term.

    And there are atheists in the boy scouts.

    Seeing as that topic is not permitted on this board, no. And absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. The modern day concept of homosexuality did not exist in Biblical times. The Bible only discusses same-sex relationships in the context of paganism and rape. And even those are few and far between (4 non duplicate verses out of 37,000 total).

    But I'm not going to waste my time having this discussion with you. Arguing this topic with conservatives is completely pointless. We will never agree. End of discussion.

    No, but extremist buzz term, is a pejorative manufactured by liberals so as to deliver a negative connotation against those who realize there is a homosexual agenda insinuating itself into all aspects of the religious and secular community. Particularly as relates to religion and their mission to destroy it's platform regarding morality and Biblical standards.

    Not when they took the oath that affirms God. If they took that and lied, they're not Scouts! Because they broke the moral code by lying.

    One Scouts ban remains intact: Atheists





    No Hebrew Bible scripture yet wherein God affirms homosexuality?

    Or are you still searching for that?

    ^_^ Sad dodge that simply relates you have no knowledge of.

    If there are verses that relate to little girls being prepared for marriage and sex in the Hebrew scriptures, there certainly must be scriptures relating to God's opinion about same sex sex.
    You made a declaration that you can't back up.
    You are right. Best you stop now. :) Especially after your pride boasted to another member in another thread that you knew scriptures better than most anyone here. Slight correction to that I see. :)

    The Hebrew Bible doesn't condemn homosexuality in any modern context. It condemns pagan prostitution. Most Jews are pro-gay.

    It's not a dodge. Discussing this topic is forbidden here, and I'm not yet again wasting my time going through a long explanation of the subject to someone who is close minded and not going to change their mind. I've wasted my time way too much discussing this.

    Outside of pagan worship rituals? No there isn't. The concept of humans being biologically wired to only be attracted to the same-sex was an unknown concept, and most ancient cultures did not have relationships where one partner was not abused/taken advantage of.

    I know this topic better than you ever will. But once again, it's banned on this board. I'm not going to waste my time with you when you're just going to ignore anything I post anyway.

    It wasn't a very relevant topic to discuss, seeing as sexual orientation was not discovered yet. The Hebrew Bible doesn't affirm Heliocentrism either. Does that mean you believe the Sun revolves around the Earth as the Hebrew Bible says it does?

    Uh, no. Seriously, do you make this stuff up as you go along? The only Jewish denomination that affirms gay and lesbian relationships is Reform Judaism. Orthodox, conservative, and most Messianic Jews believe homosexual acts violate God's law. So, unless most Jews are reformed, most Jews are not pro-gay. Maybe in America, but certainly not worldwide.

    Allow me to ruthlessly extrapolate your argument: Most Christians worldwide believe in witches, therefore Christians believe in witches.

    Why am I not surprised that someone who thinks there's such a thing as "gay supremecists" would be unable to to actually spell the word "supremacist".

    Not the same thing at all. We all believe gays and lesbians exist. Most of us believe they don't deserve to be beaten up, harassed, sent to an island to starve to death, etc. With that said, I gathered Marius was asserting that most Jewish people support same-sex marriage which is untrue.

    The Catholic Church is explicitly against the legalization of same-sex marriage, yet 54% of American Catholics support it. Doctrine is not a statistic.
    I think 81% (pg. 24) is more than high enough to say that "most" Jewish people in the United States support the legalization of same-sex marriage. That's 11% higher than the percentage for those born in 1981 or later, for pete's sake! If others don't want to use "most" for 4/5, then let's just say 81% instead of generalizing it.

    As a reminder:

    Topics Requiring Special Consideration:
    Abortion; Adultery or Premarital Sex; Homosexuality; Illegal Activity; Other Religions; On-Line Deliverance; Professional Counseling; Prophecy

    ● Do not promote homosexuality on Christian Forums. Homosexuality can only be discussed, without promotion, in Christian Communities and Faith Groups. Homosexuality may also be discussed in the Recovery and Ask a Chaplain forums solely for the purpose of seeking support with struggles overcoming same-sex attractions, and homosexual issues.
