Scout’s Honor (by TheEllenShow)
If the Boy Scouts vote to allow gays to be out, what would the scouts gain? Honesty, loyalty, diversity, leadership qualities, compassion, critical thinking skills
If they vote that gays are not “allowed” they are voting that gays need to be closeted because that is really what will end up happening since the littlest scouts won’t really even be sure of their sexuality until they are already in the group and then they will continue to be in the group as closeted gays terrified of being found out, shunned from their peer group, and exiled.
The Boy Scouts could lose the support of some church denominations where they have their troop meetings and they could lose the support of rich donors. But if they vote to not allow openly gay members, they might lose the respect of a whole generation of people.
