    Gosh, I thought I was being cynical.

    A primary reason Baden Powell formed the Scouts was to provide training to young men that would prepare them for military service and leadership.  It is the policy of the United States military that gay men and women are accepted and valued within the ranks at all levels.  If the Boy Scouts want to continue preparing young men for military service, then they need to align their policy with the military's.
    God or not, gay or not, I'm repulsed by militarism being drilled into the heads of little children, and celebrated as a virtue.

    “Americans are fighters. We're tough, resourceful and creative, and if we have the chance to fight on a level playing field, where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot, then no one - no one - can stop us. ”-- Elizabeth Warren
