Donald, you need to realize that you are on the wrong side of nearly every social issue. What are you going to do when you get to the pearly gates and God is a pot smoking 60s styled liberal?

My advice? repent dude

Why does it matter? I dunno. Because facts matter?

why are all dogs gay but only 4% humans?

I have my doubts when it comes to that 4%

unless perhaps you mean exclusively

being gay happens but that does not mean being gay is normal from a biological scientific standpoint. It is unnatural, why is that hard to believe?

Dogs are gay, ergo dudes are gay. Really? Even accepting the premise, which is extremely dubious, that's the argument you're making?

Seriously. I'm trying to understand your argument. It sounds a lot like this:

Dogs are (more or less) gay.
Humans are like dogs.
Therefore, humans are gay.

Is that what you're saying? That's idiotic.

I think having openly gay members would be a huge improvement over the rampant repressed homosexuality they currently foster. But the BSA sucks, regardless.

Same could be said of ST...

Donald - I really wanted to prove to you that at least a few of us Canadians are properly aligned with principles of authoritarianism. Look at this. Our own BC Civil Liberties Association (thats like the ACLU or the Black Panthers or something to you) is so egalitarian it feels even our bigots need the freedom to practice their time honored values without harassment from pesky lawyers and so on.




BY DOUGLAS TODD, VANCOUVER SUN JANUARY 30, 2013 7:51 PM


The B.C. Civil Liberties Association is backing the right of a Christian university to create a law school while continuing to discriminate against gays and lesbians.

The president of the BCCLA has issued a strongly worded, six-page letter denouncing the Canadian Council of Law Deans for opposing Trinity Western University’s bid to open the country’s first private law school.

BCCLA president Lindsay Lyster accused the deans of the country’s secular law schools of wanting to “monopolize” legal education and keep “religiously-minded” people from becoming law students and lawyers.

However, a spokesman for Canada’s law deans responded that B.C.’s civil liberties association has “misunderstood” their goal.

Bill Flanagan, president of the CCLD, said in an interview Wednesday his organization is simply urging the evangelical Protestant university to stop banning homosexual relationships among students or faculty.

The highest-quality private Christian law schools in the United States, such as those at Fordham and Pepperdine universities, would “not in a thousand years discriminate against students and faculty on the basis of their sexual orientation,” Flanagan said.

“It’s just not true that we’re opposing a Christian law school. Our challenge to Trinity Western University is to reflect on whether it needs to discriminate against gays and lesbians in order to keep its religious nature.”

The CCLD distributed a letter in the fall that challenged TWU’s Bible-based “community covenant,” which the council says makes clear that “gay, lesbian or bisexual students may be subject to disciplinary measures including expulsion.”

In his letter to the Federation of Canadian Law Societies, which helps decide whether to approve new law schools, Flanagan wrote: “This is a matter of great concern for all members … Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation … fundamentally at odds with the core values of all Canadian law schools.”

The BCCLA president, however, accused the council of law deans of operating on the premise “that those who are religiously minded should be excluded from all legal education. That would, by extension, include all professors, students and eventually lawyers and judges who held to the religious views the CCLD says are repugnant.”

Even though the BCCLA has stood up for the rights of homosexuals in many cases, Lyster wrote that, in the case of TWU, it’s instead emphasizing the principle of religious freedom.

Lyster cited TWU’s earlier legal dispute with the B.C. College of Teachers, in which the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2001 that a religious school can exempt itself from human rights legislation forbidding discrimination against homosexuals.

Despite TWU’s ban on homosexual relationships and sex outside marriage, Lyster also defended the evangelical school’s approach to academic freedom — saying secular universities often impose restrictions on free thought, including in regards to religious perspectives.

For his part, Flanagan confirmed he is committed to the values of freedom of religion and respect for diversity. He added that his own law school, at Queen’s University, has admitted graduates from Trinity Western University.

The controversy over TWU’s proposed law school comes at the same time that the Christian university’s faculty — who are the lowest-paid among all of Canada’s 58 universities — is in conflict with the administration over a drive to start a union.

TWU philosophy professor Myron Penner, one of the pro-union faculty, said a law school could be “a very good thing” for the Langley university as long as administrators ensured it did not add to the school’s already “substantial debt.”

TWU faculty’s application to join the Christian Labour Association of Canada goes before the B.C. Labour Relations Board in mid-February.

Note that the TWU's teachers even have the good grace to chose a good christian labor uh, "association" rather than some damn commie union.

See? we're really not all Marxist.
