I was trying to fit in, looking for a niche or a crowd I could be part of. So I tried soccer, band, karate -- all the activities that little boys growing up in my middle-class New Jersey suburb were supposed to enjoy.

Neither the Boy Scouts nor any other institution whose purpose is to promote high values amongst the young has little to fear from the gays ; rather from psychologically disturbed , sadistic men sometimes occupying very high in places in society .. overwhelmingly heterosexual .. I refer those interested to a documentary on Internet : " Male Prostitution and the Elite " where a panel of reputed investigators discuss their findings .. A horrible story of child neglect and abandon , bestial cruelty and murder that leaves one very shaken indeed .

I was a Cub Scout in Pack 114 in Queens Village, NY, and a Boy Scout in Troop 403 in Commack, NY and I had a GREAT time in both.

There is no room for prejudice in the Scouting oath or its handbook.

You and your ilk need to join the 21st century or left behind in your ignorance and bigotry.

On the contrary, the Boy Scouts and any institution that is concerned with promoting values, morality, decency and integrity to children needs to teach them the truth about homosexuality; that it is a sexual deviancy and perversion.

Don't look now, but the current policy of the bigot Boy Scouts is to not talk about sexuality at all. Or at least that's what they claim their policy is (while the ban continues.)

Perhaps the bigot Boy Scouts are lying?
