This afternoon the Boy Scouts will decide if they
will allow openly gay boys to be Boy Scouts.
Unless the leaders are intent on trying to somehow "make" a kid straight I don't know why this is a problem. Every boy should be able to participate. The Boy Scouts have some good things to offer. I know that there is a emphasis on God and country and being morally "straight".
I know lots of gay men that are model citizens and I would trust their moral values in any situation. Gay boys need that kind of direction.
Being gay or striaght isn't a choice or something you learn or get a merit badge for.
Will there be fooling around in the pup tent? Well of course - there always has been.
