    That is like saying no attack and then call me and SOB. It does not compute.

    It would be refreshing if the homosexuals would shift their focus from children's organizations such as the schools and Boy Scouts to adult activities such as the Rotary Club or Elks.

    For some reason, I don't think we're going to see that shift in focus anytime soon.

    Yes, I think that they should allow openly gay people to join the organization. However it's a private organization, and I believe they should be able to control who's allowed to join.

    If they did that how would the BSA know?

    That is your opinion the BSA and a lot of people don't agree with you.

    Huh? ... Rotary and Elks don't discriminate against gays by excluding them from membership.

    Further - I am a former Boy Scout, as is my father (my scout master), as well as many members of my family. In total we have 6 Eagles Scouts in my family. I am also gay, and had I come out during the time I was a Boy Scout, I could have been kicked out of the scouting program. Although, that probably wouldn't have happen, given that the adult leaders in my troop also held seats on the local council, and I doubt they would have tried to discriminate against someone in their own troop.

    Lastly, exactly why would that be "refreshing"? Do I or my family or my troop not exist in your world?

    By that, I mean people who are in a position of trust in the Boy Scouts have no business expressing their sexuality to the kids whether they are gay or straight. That's not their job. Conversely, if any person hired is only doing their job, it shouldn't matter whether they are gay or straight.

    Now...with the issue of protecting the kids from predatory adults, I think the Boy Scouts have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the kids whether it be from predation from gay, straight, male or female people in positions of trust.
    You are right the problem is this poll is not about that.
