The ban on Gays in the ranks appears to have been reaffirmed by the iconic Boy Scouts Of America organization according to reports I have read as recently as 11 hours ago.
I guess this is one fire that someone has ignited that might have far-reaching implications… and maybe even consequences. We will have to be patient and see how this all plays out.
It looks like some of the leaders in the Boy Scout hierarchy feel that their decision to continue the ban on Gays enjoys what they refer to as “Broad Support” and some other observers have apparently concluded the move is based in part, at least, on the influence of a couple of major Church Organizations.
Well, here is some news for The Boy Scouts Of America!
This is one blogger that does not support intolerance in an organization that has always been known for it’s efforts at “Character Building.”
Anti-Gay discrimination might set well with Bible Thumpers and other members of the hallelujah crowd – - – and with the Far Right Wing nut cases, but to me it is totally Anti-American and I do not subscribe to it.
So, until and unless The Boy Scouts of America relents on their position, I for one, will never spend a cent of my money in support of any of their causes.
I guess that is my right as a Citizen!
Others may, of course, do as they please about the issue.
