I can see the BSA's position in this. First) Gay members might be a turnoff for other Non-Gay Scouts.
Two) The old Gay BSA leader thing. No parent wants their son to go away for a camping weekend with a Gay BS leader. It would probably be those most innocent weekend, But the idea would turn a lot of folks off. I feel that if the BSA agrees to this, they'll be signing their own death warrant. And That's too bad, It's a great organization!
Political correctness be damned!

it is funny, the conservative person will say "it is my right, as a person, to refuse to serve gay/trans person" or whatever, they will say it is their right to dislike gay or trans person.

'this is amerika!' they will say.'you can do what you want!'

but then, they will take something like this and be like 'stupid carly rae jepson! she is so dumb for not playing this! she is stupid liberal, brainwashed!'.

it is her right, and anyone's right, to also turn around and refuse to be a part of an organization that hates person.

boy scouts still does not know, difference between a pedophilic child molester, and a person with homosexual sexuality... how sad :D
