You're killin' me...
Ok, I'll take the bait.
Why homophobic stance?
Why not "moral stance" or "principled stance" or just
I've never quite understood why, if I have a concern or
disagreement or opposing viewpoint, I am suddenly "a bigot"
or "bigoted", or "homophobic", or "prejudiced" or "racist"
or one of those other "unarguable" labels? What ever
happened to "neutral" terms?
Talk about intolerance.....Geez...
IMHO, the reason we don't discuss the 3G's on this list and
why I personally don't take part in these circular
discussions on rec.scouting.issues is because it is
IMPOSSIBLE to have a rational discussion or express an
opinion or explore a viewpoint without being "labeled".
And, before jumping to conclusions, remember that you don't
REALLY know whether or not nor to what extent I may
personally agree/disagree with the referenced "stance".....
