As an Eagle Scout with a bronze palm and three Wood Badge leadership training beads, a former Scout committee chairman and father of two Eagle Scouts, I disagree with the decision by the Boy Scouts to allow gay boys to be Scouts. This policy will create more problems than it solves.
If a young gay Scout acts on his inclinations, he will be expelled, because the Scout Law says a Scout must be "morally straight." But that will be passing a moral judgment that many consider discriminatory.
Boys sleeping next to each other in a tent may be tempted to push the limits. Decent families will likely pull their boys out of troops as they hear of "awkward encounters."
