Giving someone flack would seem to be in violation of several parts of the BSA's "law"Boy Scout Law
A Scout is:
I'm not so much against gays being admitted as I am allowing an ultra liberal demographic into a conservative organization.
I'm glad that the scouts made the decision on their own but I wonder how long until the experience is ruined by political correctness. It almost seems inevitable that hard work and achievement will give way to quotas and an "everyone needs to be an Eagle Scout" mentality.
So in this case, not vague stream of 'logic', the courts have ruled a business has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason, such as race, sex, or orientation?
Has the court ruled that if a diner open to the public refuses to make a sammich for a black guy that is Constitutional?
Did I miss a whole slew of recent court rulings?
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Part of what makes scouting so appealing to the conservatives that have made up the organization for generations is the belief that hard work and dedication is the route to success. Right or wrong, this is a belief liberals tend to reject. They tend to see success as being the result of the proper skin pigmentation and how wealthy one's parents are. I'm not against letting gays into scouts but I wonder how long before the requirements to become an Eagle Scout are modified because it is suddenly culturally biased or single parent households can't take time off to do all the activities.
