There’ll always be a naysayer. Now, a controversial alternative to the
Boy Scouts is growing and it’s called Trail Life. It uses the standard
Boy Scout troop’s similar motto. But, the biggest difference is that it
focuses on the young men being “pure before marriage.” Trail Life is
gaining support in groups springing up across Missouri.

    I bet that new group is going to attract almost as many pedophile troop leaders as the the Catholic church has pedophile priests!!

  • Towncar07 says:

    And I bet Tired1 that you have just presented, for the umpteenth quadrillionth time a fact presented that has no evidence. Your overreaching associations with every comment bangs the same drum, yet you offer nothing but venom on a subject you obviously feel strongly about, and while we all agree, by now [we] all GET IT !

    Could you not even consider the fact that this new group may have formed to counter the sins of pedophilia and could you not offer a positive spin on the fact that this horrid abomination just may be being fought against, and this may be a first step toward that end? Think about that, if you can reach that depth of reasoning. Allowing gay Scouts may be feel-good and inclusive, but it’s another stealth step toward fomenting that which [we] abhor. Bringing back the true Scout values is the answer, yet you constantly condemn everything, even a good alternative.

    There’s tons of evidence of pedophiliacs in the Boy Scouts for years and years.

  • Jean Valjean says:

    Yes, Boy Scouts should be pure and celibate before marrying.

    Like priests.

  • kt says:

    hey 07 why do u without fail comment on retireds opinions,they r his ,u should have yurs,isnt that how it works yur opinion on the subject matter not on his opinion,it really is tiresome.

  • Towncar07 says:

    Yes, I will agree it is very tiresome. It’s may be true that Tired1 just wants to pull chains and gain what I would call an Obama premise, and I fall for it every time. Silly me. I cannot believe that someone would be so obstreperous about a single issue, but there he is…no explanation, just a spleen gone wild.

    I also have a pure dislike for pedophiles, but it does not occupy my every thought, nor do I even mention it unless a reply to yet ANOTHER post about the subject, from always the same poster. The topic was an alternative Boy Scouts program, and Tired1 turns it in to yet another pedophile possibility, I grow nauseated, and you do also I presume. My Prep school liked to pummel the poor students with 2×4’s , but the sexual part (for me anyhow) was never an issue…hence my wonderment why someone is so fixated on the subject…unless he is either a closet pedophile, or he was molested as a youngster at age 14, and is now venting his rage thru this avenue. I don’t know, and I sympathize with his obvious repulsion at the even remote possibility on any subject is both so negative, and proves nothing.

    This whole thing must be another idea of the “good Christians” who spend their every waking moment worrying that someone somewhere is having sex. If they only put as much effort into teaching everyone to love one another and to care for the poor and homeless.

  • dd says:

    retired1….go F………………….yourself you ole fool

  • Towncar07 says:

    Rich, somewhere, someone is both having sex, and enjoying a chocolate chip cookie, and my reaction is to applaud, and in my charitable giving I care for the downtrodden. The only thing I can’t cure is Retired1 and his own personal demons.

  • Towncar07 says:

    It may be time to pull my plug…I was just visiting the Fox2 home page, and clicked on the story of the Rev Jeramiah Wright’s daughter being convicted of misusing 1.2MIL of federal grant money…sentencing is July 7th.

    There were two comments…the first was an agreement and summation of the posters opinion, and the 2nd post was Retired1 that made the impossible conclusion that the first poster was an IDIOT…exactly those three words…the infection has spread…

  • wheresJer says:

    I really have to wonder if Jerry is still writing this column? It seems to be nothing more than Christian and especially Catholic haters anymore. I think I will join the others taking a hat.

  • Towncar07 says:

    You may be on to something…the topic is selected, someone opines on the topic, the next is a refutation of the 2nd poster, no mention of the topic, the third calls both posters a name, and on and on. For want of comment or discussion, the topic is lost.Especially religion and politics. RIP. Maybe Jerry might have his own “topic-take” on all of this…what say you Jerry? Are you there?

  • anon says:

    Towncar at it again and again. Pretty boring. Why don’t you stick to the topic for a change? You’re only topic is retired. There’s other stuff to talk about other than retired. You must be OCD on retired’s life liberty and pursuit of happiness.

  • Towncar07 says:

    You are so right, Anon, as I intend to now let the Tired1 wallow in his own bile, he can now make outrageous statements about anything, and his topic is primarily sick Catholic pedophiles, be they religious or lay, and he can rail on about his general distaste and venom on humanity in general, and I will never again reply. Have at it old Tired1, you have beaten me into submission, and I greatly support your full embrace of everything seen in a negative light. All will be right in your own mind, and even tho I believe you have lost your own mind. From this point onward, it’s your stage…have at it. Your public awaits your profundity cum insanity.

  • RETIRED1 says:

    Clowncar07,you also support pedophilia in the Catholic church by paying your tithes and attending church services in that corrupt organization!!
