Re: “Boy Scouts say they’ll continue to ban gays” (TNT, 7-19).
What are the troglodytes who run Boy Scouts of America thinking? Are they equating homosexuality with pedophilia? Those are two different subjects.
I have been a den mother twice in my life, and all children were welcome; they developed wonderful skills and had lots of fun together. At least two boys in my dens were gay and have grown up to be fine, outstanding citizens. It would have been a tragedy to have omitted these boys.
I have known at least one lesbian scout leader, and she was a loving and caring person who was energetic and fun to be around.
Homosexuality is not a moral problem, but the BSA’s attitude toward gayness is. I will never give another dime to the organization until it changes its self-righteous attitude.
