Do you think the Boy Scouts should allow gay scouts and gay scout leaders into the organization?
Comment: Yes those values were those of the old days .times are diffrent then back.when the boyscouts first started by Adrien
Comment: No comment by Nicky
Comment: Every man and child should be treated the same and watch on equally. Gay or straight, molesters are out there with a clean background and you wouldn't even be able to tell if they are gay or not. A child has come out if boy scout gay. So it doesn't matter. At least the morals were taught and hopefully help that child or leader in the future. by angie
Comment: No one has the right to judge anybody by Meghan
Comment: They should be allowed to be who they really are. No one should feel left out of the world just because they are perfect. by grace
Comment: Allowing gays to be part of the BSA organization would only prove that they are equally capable of providing honesty, integrity, & everything needed to continue to withhold the organizations whole purpose of bringing out the best of each individual that is a member of the BSA! by Albert
Comment: Who are we to discriminate against people. If a parent has a problem they should get involved with the troop and volunteer. They also have the right to switch their kid to another troop if they feel uncomfortable!!! Love is love by samantha
Comment: If the boy scouts think there are not members who are gay, but just not out, is completely hysterical. by Joe
Comment: Yes gay people are no different the. Hetero people... Just bc we love the same sex..it's just love... Not a disease or a deformity! by Myke
Comment: i think they should allow them to be OPENLY gay in the boyscout's organizaton. there has been controversy for many,many years within this group about this issue.it's only been kept hush-hush. i noticed 25 years ago when my little brother was a scout.both scouts and leaders. heck i thought some of the dad's were too. but it has been there so why keep a lid on it. many young boys and young men struggle with their sexuality and this may be a comfortable way for them to be open and learn about the inner struggles of being gay by role models who understand. btw, i'm a hetero mom of 5, none of whom are gay, but,i condone role models for everyone in whatever they struggle to understand. by rashonda
Comment: Whose to say just cause they are gay that they can't b a good man figure for these young boys by Alicia
Comment: Everyone could use leadership, including our young gay youth. by Glenda

Comment: Boy Scouts is one of the few remaining organizations that has maintained a stand of honor, respect, principal, and integrity. They should not give in to the pressure to conform to status quo. by S
Comment: They can have the Gay Scouts while the boy have the Boy Scouts
Comment: The scout code includes "morally straight". That does not include 'thilly thavages.' by Robert
Comment: The boy scouts should stick to their founding values, the gays can start their own organization if they want to by Eric
Comment: There are Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, so there should be LGBT Scouts too. This would allow everyone to feel at ease while learning essential life skills to become a productive member of society. Children are easily distracted and should not have to face unsolicited indoctrination of lifestyle choices, religious beliefs or discrimination thereof while learning such valuable skills. In your argument of my opinion, please do not cite tolerance as a something that should be learned while participating in these group functions. Parents bear the responsibility for instilling this in their children on a daily basis, not some opinionated group leader the children see only once a month. Tolerance = One must not be offended by another persons Opinions, Political Viewpoints, Religious Beliefs, Lifestyle Choices. by B.
Comment: WE dont judge the person that is Gods job to do so.I Will not allow my boys to be a part of something that God says is wrong.He craeted Adam and Eve not Adam and Steave. by Henry
Comment: the liberal gestapo attacks yet another institution of boyhood. not just no but hell no! by Shayne
Comment: No. These kids need role models and be tought what is right.And I think if they allowed guy boys or scout leaders it is gonna confuse the boys and it dose go against what the Bible says as well.There is no place for them here. Boys need to be tought good morals. A this is not teaching good morals.And setting good examples either.What message dose this give to our kids boys or girls.I wonder what Lord Baden Powell would say about this. The founder of the Boy Scouts. by Diana
Comment: THERE SHOULD BE NO GAY MEN , WITH A GROUP FULL OF YOUNG IMPRESSIONABLE BOYS. I WOULD NOT PUT MY CHILD IN THERE I CAN JUST SEE THE FUTURE HEADLINES SMH by NADIA
Comment: No definitely not leave it how it is why change it. by marsha
Comment: Homosexual scout leaders would destroy the fabric of the scouts. Scouts would see "gay" leaders walkin hand in hand, kissing, sleeping with each other? This would be a big recruiting field for gays. by greg
Comment: The boy scouts should continue teaching boys to grow up to be well rounded young men. by lisa
Comment: I don't think the BSA should be forced to discard thier beliefs.
Comment: No, if they do that my twin boys will never be Scouts. We'll definitely find another organization. No one willmpush their issues on my Family values. by Bree
Comment: Very risky. I am surprised Mayor Castro supports allowing homosexuals in the Boy Scouts. Is he willing to share the blame when the young Scouts are molested? by Shirley
Comment: If they have a problem with the rules then they can open there own club. why do they have to join that one? by sasha
Comment: Absolutely not. The threat of molestation is way too high to allow that to happen. by Don
Comment: WE'VE GONE 103YRS WITH NO GAYS, WHY MESS UP A GOOD THING! by JOE
Comment: Since you don't have a poll regarding the reprieve of K. McCarthy, I just want to say that it is disgusting that Larry Mitchel issued a reprieve for her because of her skin color. Why is the complaint of the skin color of the jury coming up 16 yrs. later? There is no justice.
Comment: Wrong message for wholesome young boys. Sex is not just for pleasure. Primarily for reproduction of our kind. by Doug
Comment: PEOPLE SEEM TO BELIEVE Everything THAT IS Right Is Wrong, And Everything THAT IS Wrong Is Right. by kathy
