I would suspose by your comments that the Boy Scouts should do away with
"morally straight" and a "duty to God"? I do not know of any Scouting unit
that has forced someone to join--it is a voluntary association that one joins
because he/she has the same values as the Boy Scouts have stood for. When an
individual joins our organization, they are aware of the values that are
upheld. So, DO NOT go to court to make US accept your aberrant views.
You may accept a homosexual as a leader for your son, but I, for one, do not
want my sons to have a homosexual leader. My Bible tells me clearly to avoid
the very appearance of evil, and I view the homosexual lifestyle to be
deviant and immoral--clearly against the values that the Boy Scouts and its
This could open the doors to making churches "ordain" homosexuals as
preachers. Heaven forbid!!! I do not force my beliefs on homosexuals and I
sure do not want this group of people to tell me I have to accept them as
leaders in an organization to which I am part.
So, if you are homosexual, go to another organization that accepts that
lifestyle--just do not try to force my organization to change its values for
