Scouting is one of the best programs for boys anywhere. It teaches principles and values that engender character and integrity. It's time its leadership is forced to uphold those principles and values that the organization espouses.
The naked truth is that gays and lesbians are and have been an integral part of the Boy Scout movement since the beginning; they just haven't been allowed to say so. (There is substantial evidence that Scouting founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell was homosexual.)
Like the military, Scouting has maintained a "don't ask, don't tell" policy with regard to gay members and leaders. So long as gay people don't make a fuss, there is no problem with participation.
