    Mostly because an openly gay scout will probably not be a member of a troop full of bigoted assholes. The non-assholes will be thrilled to have an 18-year-old scout continue to help with Troop programs and will allow him to register as an adult.

    Our troop has done this before the ban happened. If BSA would just shut the fuck up about it, people will end up forgetting that gay adults aren't allowed. I think most of the public will read about this and come away with "gays are allowed in Boy Scouts now."

    Our troop always allowed gay scouts and adults so this doesn't affect us directly. But it does affect my kids who feel that putting Eagle Scout on a resume might hurt them because the person reading it might think they hate gay people.

    Since when is the party that embraces all the top tenets of Satan allowed to call the God shots?--wyvern
