I read a flyer that someone left on one of the break tables at work that I found to be cruel in nature. It was one of those petitions that urges folks to vote against anyone from being a boyscout or scout leader. I am not an advocate for the gays by no means, but I feel that that is an extreme case of homophobia when we go as far as to deny children from participating in activities that can actually benefit them and help them from becoming better citizens. I can understand not wanting adults who are gay from being a scout leader, but children not being allowed to join the Boyscouts of America just because they are different. I understand respectfully that there are parents who have concerns about their children being exposed to homosexuality, but in going to this extreme we are in fact denying these children the opportunity to learn useful skills and we are turning our backs on them in their needs.
Like I said in the previous paragraph I am not an advocate for the gays by no means, but I am prolife and you can tell by reading my profile that I answered yes to the Churches teachings about the sanctity of life and that covers a much broader spectrum than all matters dealing with medicine. Jesus loved all the children and I just can't help but feel that we are turning our backs on the opportunity to bring Christ into these children's lives, by going this far.
