Once again while watching the national news one of their segments got my gander going. I saw a story last night regarding the Boy Scouts of America. A young man who was Gay for many years was denied his Eagle Badge when he admitted he was Gay. Not once did this young man make any attempts on his fellow scouts through out those years of scouting. His only goal was to receive the Eagle Badge and all of the honors he was awarded. What happens, he was denied all honors.
Then on the same story came a preacher's comments from one of those conservative religion groups yelling about this young man should be denied any badges or honors. Hey reverend ( Notice I do not capitalize his title, not worthy of it in my eyes). How many times on the news have we heard about sexual abuse to young boys and girls by the clergy and other organizations. This includes all religions, Catholic included and all those youth groups including scout leaders and summer camp counselors.
I believe in God and say my prayers, but being Catholic organized religion is only out for the $ signs too with all the rest. Get rid of organized religion for a few decades and you won't have this abuse problem or bias attitudes to people trying to do their best and living the lives they want in peace without the interference of religious racism.
