"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
First, morally straight doesn't and never did mean heterosexual.
Second, if straight women can be Boy Scout masters and straight men can be Girl Scout Leaders (which they can), I don't see the rationale in barring homosexuals from holding such positions.
Third, if the BSA is truly a private organization then it should be allowed to be as bigoted as it wants. But it is not TRULY a private organization. It receives all kinds of special treatment from the government and the US military that is not extended to competitive organizations. Did you know if you are an Eagle Scout and then enlist in the Army you can enter as an E-2 instead of an E-1? That is an extra 170 bucks or so a month as an award for being a boyscout. BSA are invited to participate in numerous activities with the military and are given free use (though they may be asked to pay $1) of government spaces that isn't offered to competitive organizations.
There is absolutely no reason at all to deny them access. Any argument against openly gay people in the scouts will fall under the "Bigot" category as far as I'm concerned.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
