I'm in the states, but from what I've heard Australia is doing well, economically speaking. It would seem that this measure is more of a political attack rather than a case of fiscal conservatism.

@DrBobMI @martinspribble @LaughPurgatory  To boil it down: It's morally OK to be complicit in an organization that is anti-gay and anti-atheist. I imagine he would be OK if the Scouts didn't allow Catholics in, too.

@DrBobMI @reasonbeingblog Supporting a franchise is supporting the brand. It's really that simple.

That was a great post, Martin. It's important to point out that Scouts in other countries have different attitudes and policies.

I imagine that hyper-skepticism in some cases maybe caused by watching The Matrix too many times.

When I was in 5th grade Mrs. Moore, our teacher, told us to write a story with a female character in it. I wrote a science fiction story about astronauts in space. There was a woman character in it. She was the maid. I added her in when I realized I hadn't added a female character to the tale. Mrs. Moore came up to me and said, "So, she is there to pick up after the men?"  "Yes," I replied. I wonder if she still thinks about that day.

You know, comedy is about making fun of people in power, not about making people victims.
