Gee, sounds like a winning plan:

Faith-based group starting alternative to Boy Scouts — will allow gay youth, adults

A faith-based group opposed to the Boy Scouts recent decision to allow gay youth to join has formed their own program for kids and teens in response — but they will also let gay youth and adults participate, leaders said Tuesday.

While the program, which doesn’t yet have a name, will allow gays, it won’t let them “flaunt” it, said John Stemberger, founder of OnMyHonor.net, a coalition opposed to the BSA’s vote in late May to change the controversial membership policy.

“We don’t think sex and politics should be in a program for kids. Those are issues for parents,”said Stemberger, of Orlando, Fla., who left the Boy Scouts along with his two sons over the decision in May.

“If a young man has a same-sex attraction he would not be turned away in the program, but he’s not going to be allowed to kind of openly flaunt it and carry a rainbow flag,” he added, apparently referring to the participation of some BSA members in LGBT pride parades in recent weeks.

Allow them in and they'll end up succumbing to them eventually.

Isn’t that a whole lot like the Boy Scouts already? That don’t make no sense!
