Boy Scouts for Bigotry

I was a Boy Scout. We had a gay scout in our patrol – no one cared. We had a gay scout leader (Duh! He was a fashion designer!) – no one cared. And now, in the wake of this willful blindness and refusal to serve all equally, I can no longer support an organization that provided so many great opportunities and wonderful memories (and could still if they would stop being stupid fucking bigots).

FTA:

“The vast majority of the parents of youth we serve value their right to address issues of same-sex orientation within their family, with spiritual advisers, and at the appropriate time and in the right setting.”

No one is asking them to address the issue of same-sex anything. They’re being asked to stop discriminating against people. And by enshrining bigotry as policy, they ARE addressing it – just in the most ugly manner possible.
