Boy Scouts to end ban on gay members

If the BSA organization is concerned about protecting their kids from predators, and not just being religious bigots, then the solution is obvious:
They should impose a strict ban on pedophiles (along with suitable background screening of all scoutmasters, and a zero tolerance policy), but lift their ban on homosexual members AND leaders. Such a logical approach would free them from the bind they're in now, while still protecting their kids from abuse.
But the policy they have now is crazy, because the world does not have only two categories: homosexual and non-homosexual. When it comes to human sexuality, there are many, many degrees in between. Population statistics indicate that many of their existing straight leaders may in fact have perfectly normal homosexual inclinations as well. The real danger is from adults who are psychologically deranged and have no business supervising kids.
It's time people start to realize that the terms homosexual and pedophile are NOT synonymous -- in fact they refer to two very different things.

Gays are banned from the Boy Scouts; zero; nada
Religious pedophiles are welcomed by the thousands
People aren't smart enough to figure that one out

They're taking cues from the Supreme Court, which clearly is going to afford you second-class status.
This homosexual meningitis outbreak better not be AIDS II. You better just hope it's not.
