    Do I think they should? Yes. Do I think they should be forced to? No, as long as they don't receive federal money.

    I don't see how Gay boys cannot be trustworthy, loyal, helpful courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. That's what being a BSA Scout was to me.

    I like females, but that doesn't mean I want to rape little girls. The same applies to homosexuals.

    They are a private organization and as such can make their own rules on entry. Personally, I don't care what they do.

    No matter if they receive money or not they are still privately owned and operated.

    Nah, it goes against their doctrine.

    If they receive federal money, they are subject to whatever federal discrimination laws that are deemed as such to receive that money. They open themselves up to eventually being forced to allow gays if they continue to receive federal money or they can choose to operate TRULY privately on not accept the federal money and continue to not allow gays. The choice is theirs, but in most businesses they want the federal cheese.

    Yes. Discrimination is inconsistent with the lessons on quality of character that the Boy Scouts aims to teach its members. It probably needs to knock off all of the overtly religious elements, too. The Boy Scouts has a policy of discrimination against non-monotheists as well. With regard to both issues, it is impossible to teach good moral values and discrimination. One precludes the other.

    For example. Moral straightness and discrimination based on sexuality or religion are completely incompatible.
