<< Yes, I may be a scoutmaster with a style of life or practice
that someone may not agree with, but if I keep it to myself (away from the
boys), there should be no issue. It is unfortunate, in the Dale case, that
the issue was brought to the public forum, by his public announcement of his
private practices. Of course we all know this was done to push the envelope.
My point is, that it becomes an issue when you wear your "private practices"
on your public sleeve. >>
What Mr. Dale announced was not his private practices, but his orientation.
If you are married, you have done the same - and I would hope that whatever
private practices may be part of that marriage would not be "worn on your
public sleeve" - at least your uniform sleeve.
