I don't think anyone is saying that. The issue, however, is that gay men are attracted to males. Boy scouts are males. It's too dangerous a combination.
For that matter, straight men shouldn't be girl scout troop leaders.

No, gay men are attracted to adult men, straight men are attracted to adult women. If you are attracted to children you are a pedophile (whether you are gay or straight). Statistically, gay men are no more likely to be pedophiles than straight men. The reason for keeping gay men out of scouting has nothing to do with the a fear they will molest boys, but because they view gay men as not in keeping with their moral code, and the scouts have every right to do that. The scouts also won’t allow gay young men to become scouts.
