This is in reference to the Council and troop which is registering gay
scouts and scouters.
I am wondering what will happen if an insurance claim is filed, could it be
turned down because National Guidelines were not followed?
What about the Eagle Scout Award. This comes from National, not the local
council. If National is given reason to believe a youth is gay, will they
reject the Eagle Scout Application and is this group aware that they can do
As stated earlier when this topic came up, I am not saying that gays are
bad, etc, etc, etc, etc. I am just posing questions about problems which
will rear up if this group is too open about its memberships sexual
preference. I do not think anyone can aswer the questions (I know we can
all give opinions), I just wonder if this group has taken into
consideration and is prepared for the limitations that the National
organization can place on them, despite anything the local council may do.
