Penn and Teller, along with Showtime, have no wish to be engaged in a libel suit, so, consequently, and, as a matter of clear thinking, would never go to air without qualified statements, nor without the blessings of their legal team. I encourage you to view their episode on scouting.
The "South Park" episode was a parody of religious zealouts. They fired the gay guy and hired the pedophile instead.
I personally received email back in 2001 from BSA, right here in Irving, Texas, in a long conversation that gays, and non-believers, were not welcome in The Scouts. If I still had them, I'd post them here.
My mom was den mother for many years, and I grew up in the middle of it.
Logan, flex89, above, lives with me, and is openly gay, and ex-Mormon. He was rejected from The Scouts because he was gay.
I'm afraid you haven't been clear thinking and need to revisit your thought process.
My point being is that they utilize public funds, public places, and are openly hateful and discriminatory.
While, to the letter, Scouting was started as a government program (congressional charter and military grants), The Mormons have bought, and exert, a heavy influence on those programs. Penn and Teller got into all the legal details in their investigation.
My points are:
1. Religious organizations / false belief systems / cults are vehicles of hate and intolerance.
2. Until folks come out and become honest, they only empower that hate and intolerance.
3. Hiding only makes the problem worse.
I encourage you to research the matter further, and, before lashing out in infantile fashion, do your home work. We have, I assure you.
Please time now to watch these episodes:
You might view with particular interest the class action suits against The Scouts.
