Because the Genesis explanation of how we got here is *much* better than anything Darwin figured out:
In 2013, the Boy Scouts of America finally said gay scouts would not be kicked out of the organization.
But gay scout leaders were still banned. (Not to mention atheists of any age, but that’s a separate issue.)
Now, the BSA’s own President, Robert Gates, says the homophobia has to stop or the organization won’t be around much longer:
I generally like the website Cracked, but an article posted there by Mark Hill is just irresponsible, poorly-researched, and full of every anti-atheist stereotype you can imagine.
Hill is an atheist whose entire exposure to the “movement” seems to be limited to online feuds and whatever he found on Reddit, as if that should be enough to understand all of atheism. And now he’s going to tell us what’s wrong with us.
Let’s go through the list, shall we?
Last week, we learned that a group called Atheists for Human Rights had basically won the right for one of their members to become an officiant at weddings in Washington County, Minnesota. (It was illegal until then because that member, Rodney Rodgers, wasn’t a government official nor did he have an endorsement from a church.)
Technically speaking, a judge threw out the group’s lawsuit… but that’s only because county officials caved in and said atheists could officiate weddings. It’s a victory no matter how you slice it.
At any other prom, it wouldn’t have been a big deal for David Leix to wear his grandfather’s kilt in honor of his Scottish heritage.
But David attended “Praise Prom,” which is for Christian home-schoolers. Organizers thought he was wearing a skirt, so they banned him from entering until he came back wearing dress pants, forcing him to miss hours of what was supposed to be a wonderful memory:
Now, the organizer is doing damage control, saying she had no problem with his heritage. It’s just, you know, the length.
I guess he was showing too much skin in that picture.
