Obama Boy Scouts Statement: President Opposes Group's Gay Ban

Obama Boy Scouts Statement: President Opposes Group's Gay Ban

Commented Aug 8, 2012 at 18:51:18 in Politics

“The AMA and APA statistics show that 98 percent of male pedophiles are heterosexual, not gay...as was Sandusky at Penn State So for those of you worried about your son's being harmed by gays in the boyscouts...starting looking within.”

“Really good point! If you want to be a private organization that's fine...but then don't expect public benefits and still have the right to descriminate. The girl scouts have never descrimated as far as I know.”

“My daughters have a Lesbian Girlsscout Leader Mom who is fantastic and I don't even think twice about it......Why do people think gay people have absolutely no control over their sexual urges? Why are the boyscouts so uneducated on this one? The AMA and the APA released reports 20 years ago that most pedophiles are straight. This is a fear/uneducated based decision.”

“Would it also be OK if they had a flag with a swastika on it? How is that not also hate? Discuss”

natureman44 on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:49:43

“Whats with the hypothetical questions, what is relevant about the flag flown in the parade and a swastika ? Why don't you ask Obama if his friend Bill Ayers bombing police stations was a hate crime. But you have to ask a completely ridiculous question about putting a swastika on a confederate flag which has never been done or even suggested. Why would we discuss something that has never happened, and probably would never even be thought about if some dense liberal looking for a reason to be offended had not brought it up for argumentative reasons only. Stop looking for reasons to be offended, we know that is all you people have, but at what point will even you birds start being embarrassed at your ridiculous ranting !”

“were there Nazi's? in New Mexico's History?”

lucycream on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:23:32

“Swastika was a hijacked symbol to begin with. Something representing peace/unity, I'm not exactly sure. It was adopted by the Third Reich due to extreme superstition and belief in the occult.

Recall that a flag is simply colored fabric, it is the ideas behind it that make it a symbol, so if a group of people raise a swastika to represent them, and believe wholeheartedly in charity and unity, THAT would be what gives the flag is meaning.

Ask what, exactly, did the designers of this float intend to express? It's easy to go right to racism and hate simply because we don't want to understand any differently.”

cwo4weaver on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:22:33

“The biggest, and most obvious, difference is that the Nazi party is not a part of the history of New Mexico, while the Confederacy IS a part of its history.”

kinderj2 on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:21:31

“The Swastika float came in second. Third David Duke's tribute to the Klan. Fourth the Bush's memories of fun and frolic in the superdome. Fifth Rush Limbaugh's homeage to overrated athelete's of color.See It was just a theme lefty's nothing personal, certainly not Racist. Next time come out and try our seperate but almost equal drinking fountains.”

barbgre1 on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:18:38

“The swastika has nothing to do with our American History, except for the fact we fought against it....it was a flag designed and used by Germany. The civil war and the confederacy are a part of our history. We can't just pretend it never happened.”

pjoykaori on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:18:15

“True... The Swastika wasn't viewed as repressive until it was adopted by the Nazi party....”

bytebroker on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:16:23

“So you're claiming the NAZI party is part of New Mexico history? Discuss. LOL!”

JWCCards on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:16:04

“If I understood the article correctly, the Confederate flag WAS the New Mexico flag at one time and they were just representing history of the state. I don't think the swastika was ever part of the New Mexico history. And had the South won, we'd all be flying that flag and hating the US Flag. I look at it as part of history.”

donnellyddo on Jul 9, 2012 at 22:10:27

“Because that flag was a real American flag and it stood for freedom not slavery as most people mistake”

“Oh PUUUULEASEEE! It's been fine for straight men and women to share a passionate kiss upon their return...as has been photographed on numerous occasions since WWII and Before...but it's NOT OK for 2 men or 2 women to share a passionate kiss who have just returned from serving their country???!!!

“We are less than 10% of the society Gerald...don't worry, we're not going to "convert" you. Yes, you do have a right to your belief, however when you don't allow me to marry, you don't allow me to have the same equal rights as a homosexual ( not special rights) that you have as a heterosexual....that's the argument. And by the way...the divorce rate for male /female marriage is over 50%..so those " building blocks" are crumbling fast. There are LOTS of other kinds of families out there...single Moms and Dads,,,Grandparents raising children, Gay and Lesbian parents, etc. that are working just fine. Virginia will now increase the number of children languishing in orphanages and foster care that could be going to loving homes.”

“Hi..again......yes, I won't dispute you when you say gays are 10% of society......but if one watches much TV,,,,,,seems it would be 50%...........convert me?? You don't believe that gays are born gay?...if you suggest one can be converted,,,,,,,,,that suggests thar being gay is a choice one makes.......interesting! You point out that traditional marriages fail are 50 %.......to me that's all the more reason to support traditional marriages!! ..because they are under attack........i am a sociologist by degree, and yes there are many alternative to traditional families.......and since most of those alternative have become more common in the past 30 years.....empirical evidence has been gathered to prove that traditional families give their children the best quality of life......those are the facts!”
