    My best friend is head of the board of his younger son's cub scout pack.  He agonizes over finding parents to fill jobs.  His older son is Senior Patrol Leader in his Troop at 13 and on track to make Eagle before he turns 16.

    This is a very pro-gay Scouting family.  The mom's sister is a lesbian and in a long-term stable relationship.  The parents have gotten anti-gay mailings from the national BSA office and sent them back with scathing comments.

    I'm worried about what lies ahead because they are in Southern Orange County (Reagan Country) and the Cub Scout Pack is sponsored by an American Legion Post.  If the BSA passes "local option" and their local pack and troop don't elect to be inclusive, they will face a tough choice.  

    (That sound you are hearing is a paradigm being shifted at Warp Factor Infinity using no clutch.)
