Boy Scouts Uphold Ban on Openly Gay Troop Leaders and Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America have shut down a proposal to overturn their ban on openly homosexual troop leaders and scouts today. The BSA's Darren Smith announced that "this policy is absolutely the best policy for the Boy Scouts." The motion to overturn the proposal had picked up steam from a petition on Change.org that garnered hundreds of thousands of signatures. However, after a two year review by an 11 member committee, it was ultimately decided to leave things as they've been since the BSA's founding. The Scouts' chief executive Bob Mazucca said, "The vast majority of the parents of youth we serve value their right to address issues of same-sex orientation within their family, with spiritual advisers and at the appropriate time and in the right setting.

Thank you Boy Scouts!
Let us be reminded that the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Do not allow evil to triumph. Do not do sit by and do nothing.Do
not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good. The Human Genome Project where Dr. Francis S. Collins, Team Leader concludes
that HomosexualityIsNotHardwired. Up to date scientific studies
prove that change is possible without harm for those individuals who are
struggling with sexual disintegration like h_mo, bi-sexual, pedophilia,
bestiality and the like. A persons transgenderism or sex change (sexual
genitalia extraction is the right term!)
doesnt change who you truly are, your chromosomes will always say that
you are a natural female or male! A recently concluded research - the Regnerus
Study on Homosexual Parenting soundly confirmed that children of homosexuals are
rated suboptimal. Unfortunately, the American Psychological Association and
the pro-LGBT groups are trying to botch all evidences and testimonies of change
but to their dismay, even science doesnt support their deceptive claims! Pls.
read C.S. Lewis Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity, theyre one of the
best literatures which will help us and our society not to be deceived by the
devils works in our modern world. Have faith, learn Gods unconditional love,
and read your Bible pls. because were all frail in need of Gods help, God
bless us all!

In other words the boy scouts only want people who lie about their sexuality. I would far sooner trust someone openly gay with my kids if I knew the leader were happily married, than if they were a closet pedophile.

Well, the BSA is not a Christian organization and they did not do this for Christian reasons. They promote all religions, including LDS, Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, etc. The Boy Scouts are not promoting this as a moral, Christian value. So, I'm not sure your point has merit in that context.
