The homosexuals demand that SCOTUS act to uphold gay marriage, yet the homosexuals disregard the SCOTUS ruling that the BSA have a Constitutional right to exclusive membership.
Homosexuals are like an immature child, who wants everything his way.

It's a step in the right direction and has nothing whatsoever to do with Obama so this entire thread is starting out just a little off target.

The Boy Scouts have the right to exclude gay men from leadership and gay youth from joining and now they have decided that it is wrong to do that anyway.

I just don't see the problem.

If you are a gay boy and want to join the scouts then join the scouts. You don't have go telling everyone that you are gay. Just be yourself.
Most boys start scouting looooong before puberty, so they often don't know they are gay.

And isn't a part of "being yourself" being truthful? Would you put the same restrictions on all teenage straight scouts as well? No dating. Nothing in your behavior that will let anyone know that you might like girls?
