Just returned from our 2 of our council summer camps where I updated some of
the photography of their various programs as an in kind donation. It was
interesting to note that the entire staffs of both camps had to view a video
on sexual harassment on the job this summer. Not that this in unusual since
many large businesses require this, but interesting in that several of the
scenarios of harassment scenes involved homosexual employee situations, that
is a guy coming onto another guy.
So I asked my good friend who runs one of the camps year round. What is the
BSA's policy on hiring homosexuals? He shrugged his shoulders and said he's
never been given a clear answer, but all the BSA hiring literature promotes
they are an equal opportunity employer and therefore shouldn't really have a
problem with it.
What a world we live in...
