That is taken care of by the other part of his statement. He said he agreed with the policy of the BSA choosing who they want as leaders, which means no homosexuals. I suppose there could be participation of homosexuals as merit badge councilors, etc. I think the BSA just doesn’t want practicing homosexual adults taking the boys out on trips.
The clip was slightly ambiguous, and I suppose someone will soon be posting something more definitive.
The clip was slightly ambiguous...
IMHO, it was a lot more than slightly ambiguous and deliberately so.
His answer consisted of three parts: 1) He thinks the Boy Scouts do a great service, 2) he supports them making their own decisions on policy (no to gays in leadership), but 3) he thinks that all people should be allowed to participate regardless of their sexual orientation (yes to gays in leadership).
