akin to saying we all agree being on a plane with no landing gear is better than having missed your flight and possibly arriving later.

Can't wait to see if the eds. of the NR/Lack of INTEL have the guts to comment on this one. If they do, which I seriously doubt, can anybody guess which side they will take? Hint: Is the Pope Catholic?

"Homosexual behavior is incompatible with the principles enshrined in the Scout oath and Scout law." So the battle goes on between the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment & an indirect expression of the 1st Amendment. We are seeing a winner evolve.

Sexuality or discussion of sexuality has no place in scouting regardless of the preference.

how many of these kids can be gay?i say shut the bsa down and start over before any more gay scout leaders file a lawsuit.won't be any morals left in this country by the time the lawyers get done with it.deviant sexual behaviour[sp.?]is being rewarded in this country.kids and gays shouldn't be mixed.they are to easy to influence.protect your kids.i would never send my kid to one of these places.

Will they change their logo to GBSA (Girly Boy Scouts of America)?

How long before Gay Lesbian Bisexual Scouts of Amerika?

It is a PRIVATE club, SCOTUS already ruled it was LEGAL for them to exclude gays, WTF is the problem?

SCOTUS already ruled this was NOT a violation of the 14th amendment, it was perfectly LEGAL to exclude gays.

This is a voluntary vote to change their policy and suffer the consequences of THAT decision.

What!! 2.6 mil scouts, 1 mil aduldt involved. Does this tell us how many want to be kids again? My support for the scouts, both monatary and verball is down the drain. Not the kids fault; it's the G## D### Liberals who are ruining this country and all it stands for. {At least it did at one time]

I find it interesting that the adult male leadership voted to allow gay young boys to become boy scouts. Of course it would never dawn on me to think that perhaps the male leadership includes perverts who are waiting in the wings for these new arrivals. For some reason that pending court case in Oregon concerning the mass molestation over many years of boy scouts by men in positions of power keeps haunting me.

incompatable with GODs law also. when a hand full of folks with unusual wants can make the law force you to deny your own beliefs, progress has evolved.

the old saying rings true. you chances of sucess increase if you choose the right parents. liberal dopers from the 60s left a trail of odd beings for the future to clean up after.
