The Poor Chickens



NEW YORK (AP) — The Boy Scouts of America on Monday ended its blanket ban on gay adult leaders while allowing church-sponsored Scout units to maintain the exclusion for religious reasons.The new policy, aimed at easing a controversy that has embroiled the Boy Scouts for years, takes effect immediately. It was approved by the BSA's National Executive Board on a 45-12 vote during a closed-to-the-media teleconference.
"For far too long this issue has divided and distracted us," said the BSA's president, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates. "Now it's time to unite behind our shared belief in the extraordinary power of Scouting to be a force for good."

What price your soul, Robert Gates? The Boy Scouts have become the bath house of the 21st century. Sad.

Hey Chief

I am a scout leader and I am not happy with the decision. That being said, the B.S.A. is allowing their charter organization of each troop to have the final say on their leaders. Most of the troops are chartered by religious organizations. There are many councils in liberal areas have openly defied the national ban and had gay leaders before this ruling. The social pressure by what I call the "GayMafia" has pushed this and people and companies have been cowed into silence for fear of retribution. I have told people for several years that sexuality has no business in the B.S.A. The people pushing this, if they had any kids would never be in the boy scouts....this is agenda driven.
