UHHH.... Deliberate what are you Congress? As a Boy Scout I always thought morally straight meant-honest, church going, caring, community oriented and aa family man. Not sexually straight that's a whole different matter than morally straight. But no the perversness of these old men-they must be-becasue young men of today think of being gay as im of beingportant as being left handed. But not the National Board, only after serious damage to The BSA do they even consider, well guess what YOUR wrong, and have been. Being gay is not wrong and excluding boys from the BSA is as wrong as ity gets. Now your considering?! Pedofilia and homosexuality are two different matters; one abhorent one a natural circumstance. Now your considering. This nationa nd the world is DESPERATE for people of character and leadership and your considering. Your still damaging The BSA As a practicing Roman Catholic damaging the BSA as much as The Church is damaging itself by failing on the exact same matter. Congrat

"According to Rabb, he's not anti-Boy Scouts, he's anti-discrimination. He feels that if a gay boy wants to join the Boy Scouts to become a better man, then he should be allowed."

I could not agree more!!

No boy should be excluded from this wonderful group just because of who they are. No man should be excluded from being a scout leader merely because of who he is. It is discrimination pure and simple.

"The program achieves the BSA's objectives of developing character, citizenship, and personal fitness." Developing character..which I would hope would include acceptance and tolerance for all..and not prejudice and discrimination.

Time to move forward Boy Scouts...and stop your discrimination. There are many boys that need you out there..stop denying them entry into your wonderful organization due to your ignorance.
