Did they offer to restore funding in exchange for an anal sex merit badge?

I suppose it's better to have boys sexually molested by adults on the prowl for innocence.

>>The Boy Scouts of America won a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2000 that upheld the group's decision to fire an openly gay scout leader. <<
I am an Eagle Scout from years back and I bristle every time I hear this. He was not fired. He was a volunteer. He was IIRC a 19 or 20 year old Assistant Scout Master, and was in college. He decided to write an article in his college newspaper about being gay. The content was about his positive gay experiences with an older lover. The article was "discovered", and he was kicked out. Cool, considering why.
A life scout openly declares his gayness. So now how do you arrange events like campouts. Two components, keeping him from being sexually interested in other boys on the outing, and keeping him from getting his @ss kicked by other boys on the outing. When you toss in the sexual component on an outing, with juveniles you are playing with fire, in this society.
Scouts are trying to avoid this issue. Liberals are trying to force their beliefs on them, but they won't protect them lawsuits if they change. The Boy Scouts cannot win witht the liberal agenda. Libs don't care. Destruction of the Boy Scouts is a positive thing, doncha know!
