As far as gay scout leaders are concerned I would ban them from the scouts.
For children that are gay, that is a differnt story.
They should not be banned from scouting.
Most children have no idea what their sextual orientation is at this young age.
Experientation at this age is a normal passage in life.
Gay, not gay, is not the problem. It's people who are so ignorant that they don't know human nature in young children. Both boys and girls have a great interest in experimenting in sexual behavior.
Be it boys and boys or girls and girls. Or girls and boys or boys and girls.
It is a passage of young children and should not be discriminated against.
The boy scouts and girl scouts should not discriminate against gay behavior.
This debate will continue going in circles until people undetstand this is all about choices in behavior and conduct and trying to legitimizing it. IF thsi is what this country wants so be it. My lifestyle is to have multiple wives and I ALSO should have benefits for all three if that is the case.
don't want my 13 year old kid getting into no group tent with scoutmasters that are Gay and passing on their 'craft' in a weekend outing. Rather the scouts go out of business then allow that.
You #$%$ that want your own troops .. start your own group..
BOYS can't turn into MEN following a #$%$ directions..
No they won't be wearing pink uniforms. They will be wearing the same uniforms as before.
The boy scouts and girl scouts will be as they have always been.
A wonderfull group of children that want to be educated in environmental, educational and life in general.
They are our future and no one can underestimate their potental as leaders in the future.
Gay or not gay they are wonderfull young adults who should never be discriminated due to their sexual orientation.
