Narrow little minds of Fulton and Montgomery Counties. Gay does not mean the person is a prevert. Boys or Men already participate in everything what else would a man be excluded from, would you like to particiate in wearing a tampon! would that make you feel better. Your own bias makes you excluded as being a better person.

gville70 -it seems like you are reading more into this than there is. It seems to me that society as a whole was much smarter in days gone by.

Seems the narrow minds here confuse homosexuality with pedophilia.. This thread is filled with the lowest hateful pile of filth i've ever had the displeasure to read on the LH website..

Well, so far a lot of 'why not's' and no palpable answer as to why(?).

Isn't this sort of like asking if Republicans should accept liberals? Seriously, the rules for gaining membership into a private organization or group is solely at the discretion of that group. If you don't like their rules start your own group.

I thought the Gay Mafia took over Boy/Girl Scouts a long time ago.

Erheimer, very good points. I too recited that pledge at every meeting. This question in on par with the last women in combat and gays in boy scouts? What has our world come to when it wants to plant seeds of trouble in areas that should be left without? Why put a child in danger? Either side should see the danger of putting a gay child with other young boys. What possible good can come from it? Would you let your young girl go camping with boys? Or want your son to go on outings with daises? Stop and think for a change!

Turnerlady - where is it posted that life has to be fair????. What have we become ? Everything we do is dangerous, we have to be careful not to hurt anyone's feelings, and on and on ad nauseum. When did all of this become an issue?? And why is it always OK for the girls to participate in "boy stuff" but never the other way around. Where is the issue of lesbians in girl scouting ??

And I don't think the ban should be lifted.

People, wake up! Girls are already able to join the Boy Scouts of America. They have been able to join the BSA Explorer Scouts for years. I had several in my Law Enforcement Post in Colorado and they worked just as hard as the boys did. Lets do a 6 month trial for Gays, if there is a problem, then exclude them.

Next Question, you conserve water and the Water gods now jack up your water rates for Gloversville! If Gville water was so great how come no bottlers have tapped into it like they are in Johnstown?

Tunerlady next you'll say the Atheists should be allowed to join a Christian Group. It's a private group! They don't have to allow Gays in, nor do they have to allow girls to join. If taxpayer’s money supports the group then yes they need to allow gays in. Other than that the Gay and Lesbian community are free to start their own group.

Im tired of being force fed this " its only fair" crap! Fair aint got nothing to do with it! You want to be a gay boy scout? Go out and start the gay boy scouts, and quit your whining, and forcing your crap on everyone else.

The Boy Scouts of America is a religious organization with conservative Christian values. This is a private group. Participation is voluntary. They should absolutely NOT change their policy.

"On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to GOD and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and MORALLY STRAIGHT." I recited this pledge as a child and young man and will pass on this heritage to my son. In my home we teach tolerance of others and do not force our beliefs on them.

This country is turning into a crap-hole.

Every one deserves FAIR and equitable treatment. We MUST be more accepting and tolerant of ALL lifestyles. Why the bigotry?
