Gays being boy scout leaders

This discussion came up at work today.

Recently the news was talking about lifting the ban on gays being boy scout leaders. What are your thoughts on this?

When it was brought up at work, someone said that "it opens the opportunity for the boy scouts to be molested when on camping trips with a gay troop leader." <---what are your thoughts on that?

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

Given the fact that boy scouts does represent itself as a semi-religious group it is against their principles to allow this. I have no personal problem against it, since to me, unless they are that extremely flamboyant gay type, they act like normal people.

It is up the parents though to decide if they want their children to have a gay scout leader. I don't think that BSA should decide without first getting some poll or something of the parents.

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

As long as there's no government intervention in their decision making, I'm fine with whatever they choose.

The Boy Scouts may be an American icon, but they're not a government-affiliated group. They're a private, incorporated 501c3 non-profit organization, which means no one has any business telling them what policies to make so long as they don't conflict with federal law.

If they choose to be guided by a changing public opinion, so be it. But I think setting any precedent of interference here would be far more dangerous than however they choose to run their internal affairs.

My feeling is that all this media noise about whether the BSA chooses to change their policy or not is just lots of people looking to make trouble where it isn't needed. Or worse, looking for a target.

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

I didnt say they weren't. It is just what I was trying to say that if they aren't the flamboyant type then you can't tell the difference between them and a straight person.

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

They're volunteers. Neither of my Scoutmasters are paid, and my dad isn't paid either. He just gets a deductible for driving to and from a non-profit organisation.
Come check out my stuff if you want. Love to hear back from people.

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

Then I also see no issue with them banning gay volunteers.

Morally I do, but legally it's their right.

Re: Gays being boy scout leaders

My opinion: Give a valid reason for banning gays being boy scout leaders... In my school, some physical education classes are held gender-seperated, sometimes men teach the girl's class, one of them in particular makes weird
