"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.
The logic is obvious. One of the basic tenets of the Scouts is a belief in God. Agree with it, disagree with it...its not really relevant. Gods word in the Bible is that homosexuality is wrong. Open acceptance of homosexuality is pretty much in opposition to their stated belief in God. Pretty easy to understand. Just as open acceptance of an avowed and unrepentant liar or open acceptance of a scout leader that is adulterous would be an affront to their stated values, so to would acceptance of homosexual scout leaders. There is and should be no more concern that an openly gay scout leader would be a predator than there is that a heterosexual woman would target scouts.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)

Here is Brothern, posting above you, who says he is a gay man. To condemn him for that? Not my God. Not the God I worship. The Bible is filled with contradiction. It is no more God's word than the hymns we sing in church.
Thank you, Quazi!
