The Boy Scouts and the Gay Community

The boy scouts according to our constitution, which people don't seem to care about anymore, are afforded by the first amendment freedom to assemble as they choose.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of relition, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peacably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Their PLEDGE starts as follows "On my honor,(stange word today, yes?)I will do my duty, to God and my country...."
That said, it is MOST clear as to the ideals that are held first.
In the Christian bible, God makes his stance MOST clear on homosexuality. He refers to it as an abomination. Therefore, if this group professes to be honorable and holds to the teachings of their God, they CANNOT allow homosexuality in their midst. Nor can they allow open practiced atheism.
This first amendment means that they are free to PRACTICE their religion as they see fit, talk about it, write about it, and PEACABLY assemble together. Any interference with that is unconstitutional.
People who come into the organization know FULL WELL the beliefs of it. Its members start the pledge at every ceremony. It stands that if YOU do not want to cause trouble, if you want to belong to the organization, you either take on their stances, or leave.
I have NO sympathy for those who want to 'break down the barrier'.
They are TOO LAZY to start their own organization. I do not see why this is so hard for people to accept.
