It will be a sad day if the Boy Scouts cave in to the pressure put on them. They are one of the few left standing for traditional values. I was an Eagle Scout in 1971.

Honestly, I don't. As you said, a strong majority of BSA troops are affiliated with a church of some sort. I don't see any impact, whatsoever, for 99.99% of the groups out there. Basically, they're leaving it up to the individual troops to decide.

I'd hate to see the Scouts abandon their principles.

Sad.

I know this is a serious subject, but it reminded of one of the funniest Saturday Night Live skits that had Adam Sandler as Canteen Boy and Alec Baldwin as the gay Scoutmaster.

To see it Google: Canteen Boy and Scoutmaster-hulu

I would do the same if I had a boy in the scouts. I hope they cease to exist personally now, after bowing to the lesbo/gay agenda. \:\(

As a former Scoutmaster, this sickens me.

Im sickened with the idea of all this, I was a scout and learned alot of things that have stuck with me over the years about moral character. And now the same organization that preached all these such morals to me has abandoned the concept all together. If the BSA approves this my son will never have affilition with being a scout.
