The Boy Scouts Continue Their Ban on Homosexuals

Source: "Boy Scouts reaffirm ban on gays," The Los Angeles Times, 18 July 2012.

After a two-year review by a special committee, they "came to the conclusion that this policy is absolutely the best policy for the Boy Scouts." The policy is to exclude homosexuals from the organization.

"The Boy Scouts have faced repeated protests concerning the membership policy."

It is amazing the pressure a small group of people bent on legitimizing their sin can place on institutions. No deviation from their viewpoint is allowed by anyone. While nothing stops such groups from forming their own organizations, they prefer to force established one to conform to their own views because they realize that any attempts to create an alternative would flop.

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 6:9-10).
