Very big +1 to all who support homosexuals, atheists, and agnostics. I think that people still arguing against them shows an enormous attachment to and stubbornness with outdated dogma. As others have said, it's 2011. Update your understanding of society, equality, and humanity. The time for bigotry is over.
I cannot agree with the idea that the BSA ought to be able to follow whatever bigoted tenets they adhere to because they are a private organization. They may be financially a private organization, but they very much operate in the public theater (they couldn't exist if they weren't in the public realm), and therefore they do not have the right to practice their exclusionary beliefs. Everyday they take what they believe out into the world, instilling it in the children within the organization, and then having those kids operate outside, where those bigoted ideas are spread. So the argument that they are private and therefore exempt from being prosecuted, doesn't hold. Sorry. They are publicly endorsing bigotry and discrimination. If I agreed with the right of private organizations to practice (legally... I am not including morally here) whatever they believe (and I don't, because nothing in society is truly private), then I'd say as long as the BSA kept to within its walls and never came out, never interacted with people in the public realm, then perhaps they'd have a right to do what they want. But it obviously is not the case.
I, and others here who support homosexuals, atheists, and agnostics (I am heterosexual and agnostic), are not, in general, anti-Christian, per se. We are anti-discrimination. There is a very big difference. I will not support a group which advocates discrimination, which Christianity to a large extent, very much does. And so does the BSA. The BSA needs to change. If they are to do any good in society (see, that is their mission, right?), they must stop their damaging way of thinking by making homosexuals, atheists, and agnostics into somehow "bad" people or influences.
(I used to be a BSA scout when I was in junior high school, Japan-based troop. I left because of the tenets they profess.)
And the statement that homosexuals are by default "pedophiles"... is so uninformed that it doesn't bear discussing.
