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 cannot believe they would justify the ban on openly gay members because their oath includes the two words 'morally' and 'straight' next to each other. That's a really queer way of looking at it.

CommiePuddin: 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.

hlehmann: The troop that both of my sons joined is chartered by a Catholic church, and yet here I am, an athiest since I was old enough to know the difference.  Being involved in Scout activities, in my opinion, is far better for boys that not, and the Catholics, as wacky as they may be, have given us support and a meeting hall since long before I've been with the troop.  I have never had a bad word to say about about any of the members of this [articular church, it's the religion that I can't stand.

Yeah. The irony in my case is that a Catholic school I went to sponsored my first troop in 7th grade. At that school, we studied evolution and genetic heritage in science class (simple things like Punnett squares and Gregor Mendel, but I was really enthusiastic about it).

When I got to the new town in 8th grade, genetics and evolution were all still mysticism to my new public school classmates. What I'd learned in Catholic school  was the basis of the arguments that got me thrown out of Scouts.

The historic vote, with 60% in favor, signals another shift in American public opinion about homosexuality but still leaves the organization with many future hurdles.

The hurdles get smaller to the future.

This is good news. Not as good as it could've been, but still good.

When I was a Girl Scout, we made a point not to date Boy Scouts because the anti-gay ruling meant that any gay guys in there would, by default, be closeted and therefore more likely to leave you for your hot brother. 4H and FFA boys from the next county, however, were either "Yeah, I'm gay, and my truck's bigger'n your old man's, so fark off," baby-bear types or "Well, I think Mark, Rick and Steve're gay, but Ah lak girls, mahself." At least there you knew where you were with them.

/that, and FFA boys didn't have a whole damn outfit and a faaaabulous Victorinox knife they were afraid to use because it cost $200.
//just jeans, plaid shirts and a plain ol' Gerber multitool that could open the champagne, the condom box and your back door after your curfew-Nazi parents forgot and locked you out.
