The Boy Scouts of America is considering lifting its ban on gay Scouts and troop leaders, but to what extent the decision would have an impact in Indiana is unclear.

It's about time. An organization that is supposed to boost individual's self esteem and self worth not including a segment of population who may need it the most? The decision to exclude gay boys and men [and women as some den mothers are gay] was totally backward thinking and un-does everything the organization was supposed to stand for.

I don't know...That's a lot of gay male testosterone in a concentrated area. I foresee bad juju for the boy scouts in the future. Catholic priests are so old school... make way for the boy scout "leaders".

If gays can go on camp outs with the boys, there are those men who would love to camp out with the girl scouts.

Just because a person is gay, don't mean they are chaos.

It's a shame it had to make news, this should have never had been a problem to start with. I have gay friends and I'd trust them with my son long before many of the "straight" immature guys people see fit to look over children. You do realize many of the gay/ lesbian community have children to? They do have a right to participate in all their children's activities to. Otherwise stfu if you want to blame parents for never being involved. You can't have it all your way

Yeah, like Thomas now "Tammy" Lobel of SF, CA. That's a shining example of why no gay should be allowed to 'experiment' with parenting. Two straight men shouldn't be allowed to be parents together so why on earth should two gay men.
Get help before you turn into a zombie or stage a hate crime.
Heck I can show you numerous married as in man and women who have committed just as much towards kids. You need help also.

I do not understand why people think they have the right to force their agenda on a privately ran organization like the scouts? If they do not want to allow gays, good for them. This country is going to shit because of the gay agenda. I'm sick to death of an opinion like " People are born gay" being past off as fact. Just because some homo claims to have been born gay, doesn't make it truth or fact. I'm also sick of people acting like gays are some minority group like blacks. If gays deserve special rights for being a minority group, then so do child molesters, bank robbers and drug dealers. Being gay, a child molester, bank robber and a drug dealer are all examples of choices.

You deserve everything you have coming. You think it is funny to mock people and God. There will be a day when you realize that there are consequences for your actions. You need that day to be before you die, not after. Good luck!

Child molesters are born that way. So are blacks.

I know gay individuals. My brother was gay. I loved my brother. He died of aids induced TB. His lifestyle in all likelihood prevented him from living a long and fruitful life. My children never got to know thier uncle. Gay/lesbian folks aren't necessarily bad people. Not anymore than anyone else. With that said, I choose not to permit anyone to introduce my offspring to an "alternative" lifestyle. That is my choice and my obligation as a parent. The BSA will suffer due to this decision. My son will never participate. I'm certain many sons won't. I won't permit my child to be introduced to "experimentation" simply to be tolerant. My child will also not be exposed to beastiality, gambling, whoring, porn, and any other traits, habits, hobbies, or vices which I may deem to be hazardous or counterproductive to his upbringing. As an adult, he will be free and encouraged, somewhat, to pursue his own interests. That is tolerance, tempered with responsibility. No one should feel entitled to "share" that which they consider appropriate with others if that is not welcomed or desired. It is not anyone's right. Forcing one's religious beliefs onto another is no different.

Have you already constructed the bubble you plan on keeping him in so he won't be exposed to this and much more by the time he is in high school?

No bubble necessary. None desired. Effective parenting and the instilling of values, morality, and discipline. I can't control the world, but I can influence my offspring. The point will come when they will make thier own decisions. Now I will make them.

It is my responsibility and my obligation to attempt to protect my child from harm. Be that violence, drugs and drink, STDs, accidents. What caring parent wouldn't choose to do that? I instill tolerance, but my son isn't going camping with a gay scout leader until he is an adult, if I have control of it. No dog or cock fights either. No hangin' at the brothel and no bingo halls.
