The Boy Scouts of America's refusal to bend its rules to permit gay scouts...

Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the Boy Scouts policy to not allow "gay" scout leaders vs. gay scout members?

The government would like the boy scouts to end up like the Catholic church.

The BSA essentially has a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in place. If they find out a scout is gay, he will be asked to leave. Same for a leader.

Yes, that is true, although there have ben troops that have kicked out atheist and gay youths, that is up to the troop, not the national or council level.

Nope, the scouts don’t allow gay or atheist troop members.

Shortly after the Dale decision, the Boy Scouts hailed it as support for their position that they could set their own standards for leaders and members. That would seem to indicate that homosexuals are not welcome either as scouts or scout leaders.
