Does the Boy Scouts of America realize that the gay youths they are now "allowing" in are going to grow up to be gay adults ("After months of debate, Boy Scouts' ban on openly gay youth lifted," May 23)? They're not going to switch orientations once they reach adulthood. What happens to them then if they want to continue their life in Scouts — possibly as a leader? They call this a step in the right direction? Wow. So, if I understand this resolution correctly, they are no longer discriminating against "openly gay youths" but continue to discriminate against gay adults? What hypocrites. Glad my boys are done with Scouting.
