    Of course they SHOULD. Will they? Probably not. Whatever.

    Hey, we agree on something!

    You don't have to be of any particular faith to be a boy scout. They only ask that you believe in a higher power.

    Correct...but you also have to abide by their rules and their rules state homosexuality is not allowed. Agree and join. Disagree and dont. Life becomes very simple. Ive always marvelled at the people that sought to join agencies bedcause of the values they held only to immediately attempt to change those values. Reminds me of a bumper sticker I once saw. It went something like "Welcome to Texas. Sorry...we dont give a **** how you did it "back home". There's probably a reason you left and we didnt move there."

    That's going to be kind of hard. My interactions with the Scouts involved a lot of people who shamelessly wore wedding rings.

    Where's the "It's not my place to tell a private, religion based organization what to do" option?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    So...if you see someone who is wearing a wedding ring, does that mean they are openly gay? Or openly straight?

    25 years ago, it most certainly meant they were straight. And not one of them was in the least ashamed enough to try to hide it. Even now taking my son. His leader is openly straight.

    Does your son get in front of the Scouts and say, "Okay, boys...I like women"?

    If he does, he should be fired.
