The one thing i do not agree with, though it is the scouts choice to get rid of them, is banning people based on them being involved in a same sex relationship outside of their scouting responsibilities. They do not look at a straight scout leader who is openly married to a woman and say that their open heterosexual relationship promotes sexual activity that the scouts try to eliminate from their activities. I would have to think that a heterosexual scout leader who walked in and started telling the kids about his weekend in vegas where he was banging this hot chick would be removed from his duties, or at least i would hope that happens. It just becomes about what they consider "open" homosexuality from their scout leaders. In all honesty sexual activity of either nature should not be a part of the actions of a scout leader during the times when they are acting as the scout leader. It is also quite evident by the number of homosexuals who keep their sexual activities separate from their employment that they are very capable overall of not discussing their relationships during work so it is not like the scouts can make the argument it has to be present in their performance of duties in the scouts. Still, it is their choice and I hope some day they recognize that homosexuals can be responsible youth leaders who guide scouts without inserting sexual discussion into their guidance, just like straight people are.
