Right Wing(nuts) Rally to Protest Boy Scouts Considerring Lifting Ban on Gays


Fear and Hate- the message the far right takes from the bible….

For there part- the Boy Scouts who have a long and sordid history of protecting child abusers in their ranks, chose to punt the ball and postpone a decision on lifting the ban on gays in the scouts.

Which has apparently outraged the homophobes of the far right- who are appaled the ban wasn’t imediately upheld.

How ironic that those frothing at the mouth about “moral threats” are the ones preaching hate, fear, and intolerance.

Despite the evidence that homsexuality is normal. The evidence it is genetic and not a “learned” behaviour. Despite the millions of parents who knew their child was gay when they were a few years old- long before ANY form of sexuality came to be a reality. Despite the evidence of the very real harm caused by denying the very existence of homosexuality as natural. (do we really need to discuss the damage caused people repressing their sexuality thanks to the church?! )

Sorry folks. But any farmer. Anyone who raises animals. Anyone who studies human societies- will tell you homosexuality, bisexuality, and revered gender roles are the norm- not an abberation. And that it is only the false morality imposed by socities- particularly at the hands of religion, that make something as natural as rain falling from the sky become an issue.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    Not surprisingly, the Boy Scouts punted on this issue, and have delayed making a decision at least until their next meeting in May.

    And yet, scout “leaders” continue to be outed on a too regular basis as pediophiles. Hmmmmm

    • I feel like I should point out that there is a very large difference between homosexuality and pedophillia. With the vast majority of pedophiles having been a victim of abuse themselves- a truly vicious circle.

      But there DOES seem to be at least some link to society repressing homosexuality. As there is to gay on gay violence.

      When society tells one that their natural state is immoral and evil- the fear, the self loathing…do horrible things to the mind.

        I agree and know that. But their reasoning for denying homosexuals into the Scouts is thin at best, and destroys their arguments of having a bad influence on young boys, if the scoutmasters are abusing them.
