Anywho, I wanted to provide a different picture of the BSA. Yes, the HQ folks are nutters and bigots and whatnot. That's pretty obvious, and I don't agree with any of it. However, I am still an Eagle Scout, and proud of my service as a Boy Scout, and I firmly believe that many, if not most, of the local Boy Scout Troops in the USA are organizations dedicated to helping others and including others. My brother, who is gay, is an Eagle Scout. I know of Scout Troops across the nation, in Vermont and Minnesota and Colorado and Florida that have gay Scouts, Leaders, and parents and openly accept them in defiance of the bigwigs. The BSA is not as monolithic as it is portrayed in the media, and there are definitely voices within the organization that are working against it's current stances towards homosexuality.
