Better late than never.  Good job, scouts.

Fred Jones can now be a scout?

This one.  Well played.  Honestly, did not expect that, it's a private organization after all so it's entirely their business, but it's good to see some acceptance.

Interesting.

Sign of the times my friends, sign of the times.

Just about everyone who stayed in scouts past junior high was gay anyway.

It was done out of politics as opposed to any change of heart, but if it helps people it's worth it.

Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute in Washington, D.C., said the shift "would utterly change Scouting and dramatically reduce their ranks. The Catholic and Mormon groups would simply have to walk away."

And another group of bigots with "Family" in their name. Good for the Scouts; it's about damn time.

Well, except for all the public funds and free use of government facilities, I'd agree with you.

I think the threat of loss of government sponsorship probably had a lot to do with this decision...

Hopefully they'll still be prepared.  Which reminds me of a great Tom Lehrer song... I'll sing it lustily for you...

This one is a little song dedicated to the Boy Scouts of America. [applause] We seem to have a convention here tonight. The Boy Scouts of America, those noble little... bastions of democracy, and the American Legion of tomorrow. Their motto is... I would like to state at this time that I am not now and have never been... a member of the Boy Scouts of America. Their motto is, as you know, Be Prepared! and that is the name of this song.

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scout's marching song,
Be prepared! As through life you march along.
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell.
Be prepared! To hide that pack of cigarettes,
Don't make book if you cannot cover bets.
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure
That they will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
When the scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that it be shared.
Be prepared!
Be prepared! That's the Boy Scouts' solemn creed,
Be prepared! And be clean in word and deed.
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice,
Unless you get a good percentage of her price.
Be prepared! And be careful not to do
Your good deeds when there's no one watching you.
If you're looking for adventure of a
new and different kind,
And you come across a Girl Scout who is
similarly inclined,
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared.
Be prepared!

I'd be OK with the religious groups walking away, they kind of took over for the past couple of decades and screwed things up.

Okay for scouts but not scout leaders? Does this mean they're treating it like a mental disease?

TheWhoppah: So, are the Boys Scouts still a hate group or does this fix that?


A lot of scouts attended rallies against the resolution, whether or not they even realized what it was about.  There's likely still a lot of damage that needs repaired yet.
 
2013-05-23 07:39:11 PM  
Yay!
 
2013-05-23 07:39:52 PM  
They're still a group of bigots. They still say you can't be moral if you're non-religious.

Also, they still say gays aren't suitable to be scout leaders and volunteers --  basically, they're accepting gays into the ranks while telling them how awful they will be as adults.

I'm still confused as to why we care about the sexual orientation of 12-18 year-old boys.

If it's sexual conduct within the troop, well, BSA already runs a program that includes girls (Venturers), so model the general policy after whatever is there.

/Why was this hard?

The military survived it with hardly a hiccup - I think the scouts will be just fine.

Our troop had a leader that turned out to be gay.  He was ousted once he was "discovered".  Oddly enough, he never messed with any kids, and is generally regarded by everyone who knows him a good guy.

Except when they get preferential treatment from government organizations. Then it's my clubhouse they're using.
