It's great but I always wondered why wait. It's like "Hey, let's continue some bigotry until a specific date."

They didn't change the policy because of a change of heart, they changed the policy because they were bleeding money. All their corporate sponsors were pulling out, and didn't even offer a reacharound.

Still can't have openly gay scout masters so yeah.

Hey guys it's cool that the Boy Scouts are accepting openly gay scouts!

Also, I am going to make a f*cking stupid headline that stereotypes homosexuals because I know the admins don't really think very much when they greenlight crap.

This.  Also, accepting gay youth != accepting gay volunteers, and discriminating against atheists is probably still a-ok.

The real challenge will be implementing and enforcing the changes across thousands of semi-autonomous packs throughout the country. I anticipate that packs in some areas will follow the old bigotry. Can the BSA hierarchy force them to toe the new line without losing membership?

Subby has never been to the south where wearing a bow tie is considered fashionable and by fashionable I mean well fashionable.

It's the truth that you should never trust anybody who wears a bow tie. Cravat's supposed to point down to accentuate the genitals. Why'd you wanna trust somebody whose tie points out to accentuate his ears?
 
2013-12-31 10:23:25 AM
Ya...they're still discriminating against gay adults so I'm not impressed nor do I think this is "spiffy"

Apparently so. Look at that James Bond guy. He rocks a bow tie in a suit and there's no way that he'd every be interested in the ladies.

Seriously, how did bow ties get roped into this?

/Can tie a bowtie

Scouting doesn't have anything against atheism.  The requirement is to be reverent.  A scout can be reverent without being religious.  Having a deep respect for and an abiding love of Nature is acceptable in many troops.  As long as the scout believes he has a purpose in life to do right by others and leave the world a better place than he found it in, I don't care if he believes that purpose comes from a supernatural origin or his own moral judgement.  I've sat on several Eagle Scout boards of review, and believe me, the topic does arise.  In every case, all the board members have agreed that it's the character trait that matters, not where the scout obtained it.

All that aside, I think the ban on gay volunteers is pretty stupid too.  What happens when that gay scout turns 18?  Suddenly, the person you advanced to the rank of Eagle Scout due to his outstanding character is no longer fit to associate with you?  That doesn't make sense.  Unless there's some super-secret gay-to-pedophile conversion that kicks in on a gay person's 18th birthday.  But I don't know about that stuff because I'm straight.

tillerman35: Scouting doesn't have anything against atheism.


Yes, it does.

c.f. Wikipedia... "...since at least 1985, the BSA has interpreted the Scout Oath and Law as being incompatible with agnosticism and atheism ."

I can't speak for anyone else, but I immediately stopped buying any of the merchandise they try to sell during their fund drives, after hearing about the Scouts denied Eagle status due to being gay.

Certainly it can't be just me.
