Boy Scouts Break Own Rules

Sexuality was not something to be talked about. That went for liking women as well as men. It wasn’t something that was supposed to be an issue in scouting. That was your business.
Now that has changed. Now it is about sexuality.

The Boy Scouts of America, long a target of the Political Left for their stance against homosexual membership, has now decided to become the lightning rod for open debate concerning homosexuality and put the scouts front and center in the national clash over the rights of homosexuals.  
If the latest Dog and Pony show that the BSA has put on over the last several months is any indication, polling over 200,000 of its membership, publishing the results and reporting that membership was against changing policy to allow openly homosexual scouts by a margin of 2 to 1 and then voting to allow them in anyway, the national body of scouting is out of touch with the grass roots of its organization. Most just want to just carry on with the tradition of scouting and stay out of politics and the spotlight.

But isn't this is just like any governing body these days? The people involved have their say and vote and then the governing body just goes and does what it wants anyway regardless. But hey, you had a chance for input, you should be thankful for that.
Before the vote, nobody wanted to hear about your sexual orientation since that was not the business of Scouting, now the BSA has made it their business and this won't be the last we hear about it.
