  1. “Complicated issue”???????
    Since when is simple equality a “complicated issue”?
    Methinks that United Way needs some new public relations staff.

  2. This just boggles my mind. How absolutely ignorant is it to think that because someone is attracted to people of the same sex they are also a sexual deviant and/or a pedofile?!
    How the hell is that link made in anyone’s mind?
    It is a question i have actually asked people when they make homophobic comments and am yet to get an answer that makes any sense.
    It is a sad indication of how our society holds beliefs that are in no way backed by evidence.

  3. That’s it, folks. Keep turning up the heat. So-called ‘community’ organisations which practise such blatant discrimination should either change or be squeezed until they close down. Simples.

    He is Gay Not a Peadophile, get real and stop being bigotted x

  5. Perhaps Scouts for Equality should consider establishing an alternative group throughout the US where all young people and their group leaders would be welcomed whatever their colour, creed, sex, orientation, ability or disability – in no time their numbers would outrank the existing bigoted hierarchy of the scouting movement.
