Not exactly surprising news that a group as intolerant of opposing views as the Southern Baptists would urge the Boy Scouts to retain the ban on gays in the organization.
While I accept the right of anyone to hold differing views on an issue I find this position particularly upsetting. Remember that we are not talking about passing a resolution which would force units to accept gays. The resolution would simply allow each local troop to decide for themselves if they wanted to have gays in the group.
What could be more reasonable than local control and letting people make their own choices ?
And of course this doesn’t even get into the fact that there are ALREADY gays in the Scouts, they are just forced to violate the scouting rules about truth in order to join.
