DALLAS (Reuters) - As former Defense Secretary Robert Gates is set to head the Boy Scouts of America, many are wondering if the official who helped end the U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy will also lift the scout's ban on gay adult leaders.
The century-old Texas-based organization kicked off its annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday as questions lingered over its decision last year to allow gay scouts in its ranks but bar them from adult leadership posts.
Gates, a former CIA director, will succeed Boy Scouts President Wayne Perry, who led the group through the emotionally charged debate in May last year when the council voted to lift a ban on openly gay scouts, a decision criticized by both conservatives opposed to the change and gay rights groups for not going far enough.

Boy Scouts becomes Scouting For Boys.
Gates is pro-sodomy and he will soon make condoms mandatory in camp and trips
Hiring Gates was another slap in the face to normal America
He may be participating or condoning in scouting for boys. But, scout parents will be gunning for Gates.
"We shall sodomize your sons...."
From the Gay Revolutionary quoted on the senate floor
It seems that every day now, there is something in the news about homosexuality, or trans-whatevers, or sex change operations.
I would like a day free of hearing about the “LGBT” peoples, and their bitching about what a bigoted society we are.
Not at all the way I used to feel.
As someone posted on an earlier thread about all of this, Romans 1 pretty much sums it up.
The BSA will have to drop the “clean” imperative.
What don’t I understand here? How did Gates get put over the BSOA? Who appoints this position?
How about reverent?
And morally straight.
He used to be an Eagle Scout and he applied for the position. Some actually think he was a good Sec of Defense. When he stayed over as Obama’s secretary anyone should have known he was a left-winger. Any republican-appointed official under Bush should have resigned instead of wanting to work for the Kenyan fraud. Just call Gates the white version of Colin Powell. No integrity whatsover.
Thanks for that info. It helps. But WHO approved his application? Doesn’t this involve all people in the BSOA, families etcetera?
reading he title, ‘hitler youth corps’ was my first thought
The CEO of the Boy Scouts did make 1.5 million dollars a year. Gates came on as the “president”, what he makes I have no idea.
15 He used to be an Eagle Scout and he applied for the position.
He had previously served a term as the president of the National Eagle Scout Association. His brother was an Eagle Scout also.
The volunteer National Executive Committee of the BSA National Council, ~27 business executives, got together and made the decision. They were the ones who overruled the national volunteer survey in 2013 to place the new membership standard, i.e., open homosexual youth, measure on the ballot at the annual business meeting. They were planning in 2012 to install Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, a supporter of homosexuals in BSA, as the president of the National Council at the business meeting this week. The drama from last year's meeting caused them to shift course, temporarily, and get Gates on board to soothe the ruffled feathers. Stephenson is still on deck to be inducted as president in 2016 when Gates term expires. Acceptance of open homosexual adult leaders will occur during either Gates or Stephenson's watch.
