Gay youth may join the Boy Scouts

Starting Wednesday, openly gay youths will be allowed to join scouting.
Boy Scouts of America made the decision in May to accept them into their ranks. The resolution took effect when the new year rang in.
More than 60% of the group's 1,400-member national council voted back then at an annual meeting in Grapevine, Texas, for the change.

    if the h0m0 6ual orientation and activity was found incompatible and abusive among gay priests' in their leadership/formation of young boys...what makes you think somehow an exception will exist within the boy scouts???

    just an lgtb front to groom and prey on the innocence and purity of children...no one should ever place their child in harms way...add boy scouts to that don't-do-lists...

      We MUST stamp out youth groups. We MUST stamp out parenthood. We MUST stamp out everything that may interfere with children.

    Nope. I never go on the marquee. That would be rupert, known in real life as Jeffery Grant Roem. Cnns resident troll and hijacker for almost 3 years. You would think they wouldve taken care of that by now wouldnt you? They have the means and know how so he must be one of their employees i guess.

    As a father of three boys I've been trying to get my kids interested in the private parts of other males so they can fit in and feel accepted with the new policy. I've been told it's natural and shouldn't be a big deal. Any ideas to make the transition feel more natural?

    Just curious, why doesn't the gay and lesbian community start their own scouts ? Problem solved.
