OBEYING God is not murder. It's justice!
Don't listen to God tell you this.

This is just as logical as having heterosexual men in charge of Girl Scout Troops. On overnight campouts.

Apparently there are two board members pushing this. Since queerdom goes completely against what the Scouts stand for, I think these board members should be removed.

If the Scouts do allow homos into membership, it will doom the organization. What parent in their right mind would let their son anywhere near an organization that promotes a sick, perverted twisted lifestyle. Kids today have enough problems without this.

What is wrong with you? Do you honestly believe that if you keep insisting God is ordering me to go out and murder homosexuals I’m going to start believing you over the real God?

You must be a homosexual.
It's not murder. It's JUSTICE!
I'm not insisting you do anything.
That's between you and God.
But you have been shown the truth.
And you HAVE been warned!

The already have there own groups

Open Scouts for All been around since 1997

Baden Powell Service Association (BPSA) since 2003

Both are identical programs to the BSA and are in most states.

The homosexuals do not want inclusion. They want to destroy the BSA and the high moral standard it sets. The only way they can feel morally correct is if there is no standard above theirs.

As for the board of directors- they are just selling out for the money. My question to them is- How much does integrity and morality cost on today’s market?

If they vote for including sodomites, they might as well throw out the Scout Oath:

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

Say no to these people against Christ and send them to hell.

I agree to say no to their agenda and do not let them corrupt others, but as for sending them to hell, likely they are headed that way, but your attitude is way out of line. They need to be prayed for so that they can be saved and be set free from that kind of bondage to that kind of sin.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

James 2:8-13 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. 9 But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it. 11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Jude 1:22-23 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.

Scripture does indeed teach that homosexuality indicates a certain level of depravity in one's heart but NOBODY is beyond redemption and that kind of attitude is NOT Christlike.

In the Beatitudes, Jesus says that looking on a woman to lust after her is the same as committing adultery with her in his heart. Anyone who is so judging others had better be sure they have been absolutely perfect in their thought lives before casting the first stone.

Jesus died for ALL and it is God's will that all come to repentance and a knowledge of the truth, and I'm pretty sure that when He said that He knew that it would include homosexuals.

I will never condone that kind of sin, any more than I would condone ANY kind of sin, but there but for the grace of God go I or you or any other person. They were made in God's image just as you and I are. They are as deserving of salvation and being set free as any of us.

For myself, I pity anyone trapped in that lifestyle and who has to struggle with that kind of sin. Separate the sin from the sinner.

Your attitude is reprehensible.

The thing is gays are already in the Boy scouts and always have been. I was in the scouts in the early 1970s and to me the kids who always were the biggest problems were the gay ones. Of course back then nobody knew they were gay, maybe some adults, but looking back now it’s clear as hell what they were, and what they were doing was throwing what they call “bitch snits” which BTW is another reason why gays cannot serve in the military, they are too emotional.

For example we had this one kid named Scott who acted very effeminate, back then we just knew him as a sissy, and getting this guy to do anything was like pulling teeth. For example telling him to get water for cooking and he would got to the lake instead of the spring, or telling him to get fire wood and he would get a couple twigs. And he would always go into these b*tch snits and hide in his tent.

This is EXACTLY what went on with Bradley Manning, I know it is. He went into a bitch snit because they were giving him orders and as a result he committed the largest security breach in US military history.

This is why gays cannot be allowed in ANYTHING that requires orders because they do NOT have the mental stability to accept them. But tell that to liberals, they just don’t care. When it comes to the military gay men are a different breed mentally from straight men, women even lesbians. Gay men cannot take orders. Maybe some can, but most of them can’t and what that does is put our military in danger which is exactly how the libs want it.

Do you not know of the Second Resurrection?
If you want to read it described, read Ezekiel 37.

I thank you for 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, but I recommend reading the whole chapter of 1 Corinthians 6.
It will give you a more complete context of your reference.
I've had it with Satan's It's time we sent them to hell (the grave).
Never forget, "so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. "

What's "reprehensible" is that we don't OBEY God, and we contiue to THINK that we know better than He does.
So we "Compromise" his judgments
and Satan continues to take us further away from our God.
Send them to HELL!

When they learn to say no to the corporate sponsor money.

That’s all this is.

from the Christian Post a few days ago:

. . .”The New Jersey Star Ledger reported today, in an editorial supporting the Scouts’ decision, that Intel announced last September it would stop donations to the Scouts unless it stopped excluding gays. A month later, pharmaceutical giant Merck followed suit. UPS announced last month that it would no longer give to BSA because of its ban on gay scouts, volunteers and leaders.

The BSA website lists some of their current corporate sponsors, including AT&T, Bass Pro Shops and ExxonMobil

The fact that an abomination such as sodomy receives any consideration at all is a violation of the Scout Oath, Law and of every moral code ever promulgated for the uplift of mankind.

Many idiotic people, (executives, legislators, judges and other magistrates) lie and say they are personally opposed but that change is inevitable. Therefore punitive consequences ought to be imposed on any who dares put an abomination on the agenda because to even consider it gives it psychological validity to them many idiots among us.

We don't let our scouts play with knives, fires or on the Interstate and we don't give flaming perverts who feel entitled to anal sex with our scouts, access to them!

Rejecting murder does not make people homosexual. If you’re going to continue calling for the mass murder of homosexuals, you should at least look it up in a dictionary so you know who your intended victims are.

It's God's job to send people to hell. Not ours.

Their offense is against Him, not us.

He did not delegate that responsibility to us. Murder is still sin.

On the contrary, Jesus command to us is to go into all the world and preach the gospel and make disciples. That's what we're been empowered by the Holy Spirit to do.

Your attitude would end up justifying the Inquisition.

Jesus died for those sins just like he died for yours and mine.

God is not willing that ANY should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Vengeance is God’s. HE will repay.

Our commission is to spread the gospel and make disciples, not to be God’s hangman.

Your calls for killing of homosexuals is way over the line and your attempting to use Scripture to justify it is more than reprehensible. It's an abomination.

many churches already have in-house alternatives to the Boy Scouts.

In the baptist church it’s called the Royal Ambassadors

Read his posts. That is exactly what he has done. And he has falsely accused me of being a homosexual, whom he claims to be under God’s command to kill, because I dared to confront his lies about God’s commanding all of us to commit mass murder. He claimed that murdering homosexuals isn’t really murder, because according to him God commands us to kill them, so it isn’t murder. That is what he has said. If you’re going to continue defending him, I just want you to know what it is you’re defending.

Sure he has in posts 23,45,51, and post 65 where he said this...”It’s time we sent them to hell (the grave).”

Twisting God’s word to justify murder is more of an abomination than the homosexuality he condemns.

He sounds as unbalanced as the Phelps group.

Let me ask you:

If you don't OBEY God, then that's between YOU and God.

I suggest you start at Genesis 18:16-33. and read on thru Genesis 19:1-29.
Take a good long look at where homosexuality get you.
Think about it, long and hard.
Pray on it.

But most of all, OBEY God.

Calling for the deaths of those targeting children for homosexuality is understandable.

Twisting Scripture to justify it as God’s command to us in the church age is another matter.

Well, if civil war comes maybe.

The Homosexual Movement in this country thinks molesting children is a great idea, its pretty obvious. They ALWAYS seem to be targeting children with their propaganda (media and schools) to desensitize them.

These people and their allies are the enemy of civilization. If two adults get it on in their bedroom, who would care (or know) if they weren’t trumpeting it on TV, in classrooms and having the government teach that its normal and okay for the kids.

It is always about the kids (their mission field) when the homosexuals want to be acknowledged in the public eye.

Self defense is justified. Protecting children is justified. But to murder people for engaging in perverted sexual lifestyles not involving children is not justified. Anyone carrying that level of anger is in need of prayer.
