Boy Scout leaders to vote on ending ban against gay membership

The polarizing debate over whether Boy Scouts of America should allow gay members could culminate with a vote on a new policy Wednesday.

But no matter which way the vote goes, activists on both sides aren't going to be satisfied.

The controversy pits leaders of religious groups that sponsor about 1 million Boy Scouts against activists who want the organization to end its ban on openly gay Scouts and Scout leaders.

    AThe Catholic church already tried that, ask the little altar boys how well it worked, better yet look at all of sandusky's football player's but the best example said " it puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again. There is no such thing as lbgt, a man that would do a man is gay regardless if he does a woman or not and a tranny is just a gay freakshow. A lesbian is just a gay female and gay which covers the other three is a sodomite. Just because you come up with a new word doesn't mean you created something new, they are all still the same kind of freaks that caused God to destroy Sodom and Gammorha. They call it sodomy for a reason and these deviants need to be kept far away from children.

    You've come a long way, baby!
    What amazes me is the courage and self-awareness of the New Youth of America in not only knowing individual orientation but having the guts to tell the world who they are.

    I just heard a lady on CNN say what are we to do if they go camping with our children. The boy scouts have a rule of 2 parents going camping, I say stop using the boy scouts as a babysitter and go camping with your troup if you are worried about it. The gay people are not going to teach your boys about being gay, they do not have a gay patch, they want the right to be scout leaders and teach boy scout ways.
