I've known good and bad examples of both gay and straight Scouts, I think. Their sexual orientation had nothing to do with their failure or success.

The question remains whether the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. If one believes the clear words of the Bible as well as the 1950 years of understanding among Christians that it calls homosexuality a sin and if one rejects the ersatz method of "interpreting" the Bible to meet preconceived notions, to satisfy "itching ears," and to be politically correct, then the question is not which of the 10 virtues is most important, the question is whether a church or a Christian should be involved with an organization which either promotes or accepts sin as normal -- not to mention the Scouts long term syncretism -- the teaching that there is one God and Jesus is only one way of many to approach him and that the God of the various religions of the world is the same God.

There is NO reference to sexual orientation in the Bible PERIOD. And Jesus said NOTHING about it at all according to the Gospels. Your old, tired, legalized orthodoxy is not the standard for exegesis.

The Bible has a lot to say about sex

Romans 1:27
1 Cor. 7:2
Galatians 5

If you need OT, let me know. Sex with same gender, animals, outside of marriage are all wrong.
