Defenders of Marriage

h/t HuffPost

If you love, where you love, what equipment you might use… Actually, the equipment is somebody’s business. And yet, the “Traditional Values” people are all upset over homosexuality in the movies, in the workplace, in the Boy Scouts. And they should just realize that homosexuality in the Boy Scouts is a tradition. And now that the California State Supreme Court has upheld Prop 8, it’s official: San Francisco is moving to Iowa.

    Wikipedia has an article speculating about the founder of the Boy Scouts, Robert Baden-Powell. I think Baden-Powell’s illustrious military career is a good argument for getting rid of DADT, although he has been described as a “repressed homosexual” because there is no evidence he ever engaged in sex with a male.

    Every time someone comes to my door collecting for the boy scouts, they have to hear a lecture from me about why I no longer support them. Come to think of it, it’s been quite awhile since they came around.

    Cliff, the lyrics to this are so witty, I had to look them up. Here’s a link.

    From the Wikipedia article:

    Baden-Powell “…consistently praised the male body when naked. At Gilwell Park, the Scouts’ camping ground in Epping Forest, he always enjoyed watching the boys swimming naked, and would sometimes chat with them after they had just ‘stripped off.’”

    Wow! Can you image the headlines that would make today? The founder of the Boy Scouts would be toast.
