I have nothing against gay people, but I would have reservations having my son in a tent with a gay scoutmaster, sorry.

Do scouts usually share tents with adults?

just because a man is gay (scoutmaster) DOES NOT make him a pervert or danger to the kids.
if he's a pedophile, though, he should not be around kids EVER.
it's not about sexuality it's about character/ morals.

I agree, didn't mean to hit a nerve, just an over protective mom's opinion.

I agree. Scouting is a good program for all involved. There has not been any issues in my time. I would feel comfortable. And besides, I have been known to pitch a mean pup tent in my day.

Agreed.Pedophiles should not be allowed to be around anyone as then they have access to children by virtue of peoples relatives.Most molestations are done by a pedophile who is someone close to the victim.

Don't indite all christian men of cloth- it's largely catholic priests who cause the issue.

After they let in gay kids, they should also allow in spiders and crabs, and after that, they should let in Samuel.

Total liberal, politically correct, "feel good" horsecrap. There`s a reason parents don`t feel comfortable with men camping with girl scouts, and the same logic applies to homosexual men spending overnighters with boy scouts.

Bull. I worked as a bra fitter at Victoria Secret and no one ever complained.

If the BSA bows to the Gay Agenda and admits homosexuals they surely will be admitting "gay members" right up the behinds of the scouts.
Right. You just can't admit you might be a little gay yourself. Like in the shower after gym class you didn't get a little "chubby".
