SHould have kept his lip zipped, gotten the award, then marched in the gay scouts section of every PRIDE parade.

The actions you suggest violate the very principles of Scouting, such as honesty and integrity. The homosexual attitude that the end always justifies the means is what really stinks.

He told the truth, showed great courage, honesty and integrity.......look what it got him!!!!

What the Boy Scouts of America teach is NOT Honesty or Integrity........in fact they teach just the opposite in my opinion!!!

I was a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout. Their anti-gay bigotry is pure hipocrisy on the part of the BSA.

Until they welcome boys of all sexual orientations, NOBODY should support the BSA in any way whatsoever.

And people should object and contact their elected officals and other government officials when teh BSA uses taxpayer-supported facilities.

If you won't let teh KKK use a facility, then why allow the BSA to do so also ?

BSA? Boy Scouts Association... Should be more like Bull Shit Association if they can't get past their homophobic bs.

If the Scouts valued integrity, they wouldn't pursue this false need for discrimination. If they valued honesty, they wouldn't be involved in the very same pedophile-hiding that the Roman Catholic Church is guilty of. Why keep pointing at gay people as an easily-slandered "enemy", when that gives the pedophiles the entry they need? When they know what you think is "normal", then they know how to hide.

When "the end" involves doing what's right, and treating all people with respect, then "the means" are justified. The homophobic attitude that sexual orientation is worth focusing on or good for use as an excuse to exclude is what stinks.

Try LEARNING about the people you slander so freely, instead of railing against the cartoon stereotypes that are fed to you.

This kid wants to raise awareness, and spread a little dignity and respect in the world. You'd THINK that the BSA would want the same thing, instead of drawing lines to divide people, and promoting hate, fear and ignorance.

Canadian Scouts do not have such discriminatory rules, yet are still equal Scouts as far as the World Association is concerned.

Look in the mirror before you start claiming the corner on justifying the means, bigot.

Boy Scouts in the UK also have no problems with gay scouts or adult participants.
