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.

There is nothing arbitrary about excluding homosexuals from the Scouts. The Boy Scouts are protecting children, as they should.

Google also has plenty of information about space aliens taking people for rides in their little green ships.

Beandogs assesment is correct.
