Your response is a separate issue all together. It's not about disqualifying any specific person based on his or her sexuality. It's disqualifying all persons whom you don't know well enough for your son to be in their custody...away from the family unit. So, I would say that overall, the scouting program isn't for you...or your son...unless the scout master(s) are known and trusted by you.

Are you trying to get rid of them for a week?? NO MATTER WHAT??
I sat with a man once..who was a serious financier..but became an alcoholic..
His parents used to leave him with a priest whilst they worked in India..
The priest used to ''bugger'' him on a regular basis..when his parents came home and he tried to tell them what had happened..he was told he was ''a naughty boy who told lies'' and should be ashamed..
There is a major difference...despite your personal fears.
Actually, you shouldn't disqualify men who live heterosexual lives...with wives and children of their own...who are scout masters. You know, just like Jerry Sandusky.
Your children are going to have to live out their lives on a very short lease...and/or...remember to drill a lot of air holes in the glass box that they will spend their childhood in.
