I must presume you did not read the links I posted or you refuse to believe them.
That's on you.
And it is of no surprise.

Would it kill you to stop being stubborn and try to learn something?

What I posted as opinion is arguable. What links I posted as facts to support them, is not.
I read about Greece in grade school and college.
What you seem to claim is some spartans were populated by homosexuals
they were a club of boys
so boy scouts is based on homosexual relationships
because boy scouts is a club of boys

I didn't say boy scouts were homosexuals. I said the principle structure of the BSA was modeled after the Spartan Agoge'

Spartans would find your humorous musings rather insulting.
Are you an educated authority on ancient Greece? If so you should demand a refund.

I'm no authority but at least I'm willing to learn from those who do know. You just make stuff up.

I posted links on the subject. From authorative sources. You obviously never read them.

The true sadness of ignorance is the stubbornness of the feeble minded to even try to correct the defect. But you don't even try to mount an educated guess defense. If you are going to accuse someone of telling crap, best have facts to back it up. You just keep shoveling the sh!t thinking it's sheer volume makes you appear smart. Pathetic.

No. It's an analogy completely on topic.

Refusing to work with people or be near people that are considered unclean or beneath you is a demonstration of bigotry.
And it's nothing new.

The racists did it with blacks when they refused to go to the country clubs that started letting them in or the schools that started letting them in.
The Mormon Church doing that with the Boy Scouts is the same phenomenon.

If you can't reply to the point, that's fine.
It's really not unexpected...

It isn't easy being a conservative these days.

A religion that was founded by a racist pedo prophet who was a seditious criminal and anti free speech water head who made up a religion has moral objections to gay people. Too funny!

Are you?
We are two equals discussing Greece based on our avocational studies.
You draw Greece into a discussion of boy scouts losing their funding.
Why?
