Unfortunately, creating segregation isn't going to solve these issues. Creating acceptance, will.

Ryan Andresen knew he was homosexual when he joined the Boy Scouts, and he also knew the Boy Scout policy regarding homosexuals. He therefore was willingly deceitful, violating the Boy Scout fundamental principle of honesty.
Homosexuals expect SCOTUS to rule in their favor regarding gay marriage, and if that happens, they expect everyone to respect that decision. SCOTUS has ruled that the BSA have a Constitutional right to remain exclusive, yet the homosexuals do not respect that decision.
This shows that homosexuals will only abide by the rules that they see fit to respect.

Just because their rules were (and are presently)unjust doesn't mean they have to stay that way forever.. Or do you pretend that the world should come to a standstill just to please bigots and ignoramuses? When and where has that been the case?

Did you miss the part about SCOTUS ruling that the BSA have a Constitutional right to exclusive membership? Are you saying that the SCOTUS ruling is "unjust"? Are you saying that homosexuals are a higher authority, greater than the highest court in the land? Are you saying then that SCOTUS are bigots and ignoramuses?
The arrogance of homosexuals appears to be boundless.

"Exclusive membership" means DISCRIMINATION.. Far too many groups have used that as an excuse to practice all sorts of injustices in the name of "exclusivity" and the Boy Scouts are no exception.. There shouldn't be room for that in any human organization.. And if SCOTUS gave it their approval then SCOTUS was wrong in doing so.. You can't be so naive as to think the law doesn't make mistakes.. and that the highest courts have never had bigots and ignoramuses amongst them.. They have a long, long history of such, shall we call them (euphemistically) miscalculations..? But the truth will be called "arrogance" when it dares to see beyond the obvious..

You homosexuals eagerly anticipate SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage. If they rule in your favor, you will herald their decision and shower them with accolades.
If they rule against gay marriage, you will condemn them as being "bigots" and "ignoramuses".
There is something seriously wrong with the homosexual mind. Intractable is a word that comes to mind.

I never said all members of SCOTUS were bigots and ignoramuses.. I pointed out that it's not impossible to find such people even among the highest placed, be they politicians kings or presidents.. Brush up on your History.. tons of examples.. And I wouldn't talk about "intractability" if I were you.. You're a blatant example of it..
