I never understand all this stuff. I understand the politically correct crowd hates the Scuots because of the ban on homosexual scout leaders. It’s like there’s no perspective or balance or nuance in this world anymore. Even if you are big on gay marriage, why do we have to destory the boy scouts because they aren’t on board with the gay agenda? Can’t you see all the good that the Scouts do, even if you support all the gay pressure groups?

It’s like we live in a black/white world. If an organization or individual doesn’t follow the politically correct agenda right down the line, if they don’t swallow every bit of the liberal line, then that organization or individual is targeted. It doesn’t seem to matter what benefit they are to society; in the PC world, the Boy Scouts are the enemy.

The boy scouts reject gays and athiests because they're run by the Mormon Church at the top level. Lots of people dont hate them specificly because they exclude the gays, its that they are church sponsored organization and yet still get government money. Have to love God and not be gay to be a scout.

Personally I think they do a lot of good too, but if they're excluding people based on whatever arbitrary criteria they decide then they really shouldn't be getting taxpayer dollars to operate, let their membership support it fully.

If you need information about the Morman involvment with Scouting google has plenty of information.
