If a formal split occurs, the new group can be identified as the "Bigot Scouts of America".

I predict there will be a big fuss in regions (mostly the south) and then everyone will pretty much get over it.

Remember the destruction of the military and mass exodus of straight troops when gays were allowed to serve openly?

Me neither.

I honestly do not believe any change will occur. It simply will not happen. Religious institutions have too much control over the BSA.
