    I expect they will allow gay adult leaders in 2-5 years.

    At last our young males will learn how to decorate. Most bachelor pads are pretty lame.

    I support the right of the boy scouts to allow (or not allow) whoever they want to join the group, but I'm glad to hear they've decided not to discriminate against gay members.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I like the Bach's they do in places like New Zealand where it is a rite of passage to go out and build your own Bachelor Pad out of found materials without spending any appreciable amount of money on it.

    Believe it or not, I don't remember ever seeing someone answer this question..... If there are any gay people reading this, do you get turned on when you shower with someone of the same sex?

    It's not up to us to decide on who they want in their club and as I said before I really don't care one way or the other.
    I would agree if they didn't get any subsidies or privileges from government. (they do, so I don't)

    I appreciate the progress, but continuing to ban gay adult leaders is wrong. All adult leaders should be considered potential molesters and monitored by another adult most of the time. Most molesters seemed to be regular, straight guys until they got caught.

    So now the problem is no longer that the homos won't stop complaining. Now, it's "The BSA is being oppressed!!"

    Better notify the Poutrage Squad!

    It is still private property regardless of subsidies or privileges from the government. The right to association and the right to control access to your property still stands.

    View point noted. For me, I don't care one way or the other. They can do whatever they want.

    Did you know that all anti-discrimination laws breach the right to association and violate the thirteen amendment? No? Well, you do now. Many of them breach the right to property as well, obviously.

    Like it or not, people have the right to associate and do business with who they want.

    Well if you want to denigrate gays by calling them homos, feel free.

    Stating that it is not over is just a reality.

    Didn't say anything about the BSA being oppressed. People should be free to associate with whomever they want to associate as long as it isn't state sponsored. I guess some people feel more entitled than others. Personally, if I were gay, I wouldn't want to be a part of an organization that did not want me. I don't try to force my way into the Scientology Center or Nation of Islam meetings. In reality, the scouts are largely a bunch of geeks so I never had a real desire to participate. I am sure they did great things at one time, but I just don't see it today. Big Brothers is a more relevant organization to at-risk boys than the scouts.
