    Bad decision. Another reason to seriously distrust any democracy.

      Without question disagree.
      Here is the option, if the Boy Scouts hold that homosexuality is inconsistent with their beliefs -
      What's STOPPING Homosexuals from starting their own troop of rainbow scouts? Let like minded people gather to start their own organization, let there be homosexual troop leaders, gay pride merit badges, But lets not castigate, demean the Boy Scouts for holding to their beliefs.
      But if you want to break down strongholds of the past, you infiltrate, you change and attack, turning the tables to now have the Boy Scouts likened to a hate group.

          They're a private organization so they can do whatever they like. They did keep the ban on gay scout leaders which I think is more important. I'm not sure organizations such as the BSA are as important as they used to be anyway, membership has been declining for some time.

          Don't like what the boyscouts did? Send your kids to AWANA.

            Bad.

            We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.
            They already know monsters exist.

                  When I met my wife she attended the North Side Gospel Center which is the church where AWANA youth clubs was founded. I started attending her church and became an AWANA youth leader. In 1977 at AWANA youth camp the kids put a snake under the blanket of my bed.

                    Now if Xians would just avoid getting their panties in a bunch, all would be well for the boy scouts.

                    I was a gay boyscout. This organizing was about preparing to go camping, camping, and selling Christmas Wreaths. It never felt like church.

                          On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

                            Bad decision. Allowing perverts into the scouting program is going to cause of lot of problems. It isn't going to be safe to let your son go on overnight campouts with these guys anymore. Perverts tend to be very aggressive in promoting their lifestyle. Do you think they are gong to rein it in at boy scouts?

                            June is Gay Pride Month.Tolerance and diversity? ☞ More like tolerate perversity.☠

                              Bad decision.
                              No man can come to God except through Christ. (Jn. 14:20)
                              No man can come to Christ unless he comes through the Cross. (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:13–18)
                              No man can come to the Cross without a denial of self. (Lk. 9:23–24)
