I highly doubt it. This is so much hot air.
I can't believe that so many claiming to be advancing Christian principle are really trying to defend a bigoted, judgmental, and exclusionary stance. That is not what Jesus would do.

Governor Rick Perry cherishes his scouting experiences but would deny those same positive experiences to boys who may just happen to be gay. What is that about?

I am Gay and was a scout when I was younger. Nothing ever happened to me. It wasnt until I went on a church outing that a Priest tried to molest me. I think the issue here is not so much bigotry as it is fear from those Christian Values.
It must be tough getting up in the morning and telling yourself God Loves Me!

The hilarious irony to all of this is that Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, was himself gay. The gay thing was never an issue until the evangelicals and the Mormons decided to use the Boy Scouts as a recruiting tool to fill their pews. This is a small step forward, but it is at the very least a STEP FORWARD.

I wonder about the gay adult thing, though. So they're saying that a gay boy can work his way up through the Scouts, earn his Eagle Scout designation, but when he turns 18, at a time when he'd begin, if straight, to mentor the younger scouts, he must resign? A total humbug.

Not as tough as getting up in the morning knowing your wires are crossed. There aren't many normal parents that would send their sons camping with gay boys.

Cletus, it's been happening since the Boy Scouts began. there have always been gay kids in scouts. Same as the stupid DADT policy, there have always been gay soldiers. I guess you, good little intolerant, have NO problem with gays as long as they don't say anything, but as soon as it is out in the open, you panic. Does that make any sense?

Besides, obviously you NEVER were a scout. You are NEVER not supervised. They do NOT assign two boys per sleeping bag. The kids are never alone. When is all this rooting ant tooting supposedly going to HAPPEN?

Why? They have been doing it since the Scouts started.

All the religious homophobes 'should' indeed get out of the scouts and don't let the doorknob hit 'em where the sun doesn't shine

And all these whiny terrorist taliban spokesmen should lead the way

Yell me about it. Remember that pic of him as the Marlboro Man meets Brokeback Mountain.

You just gave a brilliant example of why they oppose teaching "gay history" in schools!

Love it. Like when they claim we're destroying the moral fabric of society. We'd NEVER DESTROY FABRIC, we'd just accessorize it flawlessly.

You know what will happen, some pervert will sodomize a young boy and if the parent(s) don't kill them first they should file suit against any group that supported or pushed this agenda and bankrupt them.

They hid their sexual preference. Now they won't have to. Big difference.

Google 'boy scout sexual abuse." So much for your "NEVER not supervised." It will only get worse.
