    My son just achieved the rank of Eagle Scout a few months ago.  Because of the tremendous amount of time and effort that goes into getting to this rank, those few scouts that make it usually don't get there until just before their 18th Birthday (in Scouting you must obtain Eagle before you 18th Birthday).  So if your gay, and become an Eagle just before you turn 18 you are given substantial praise and then a few weeks or days later when you turn 18 you are kicked out for life.

    I wonder if anyone at BSA realizes how crazy that is?
