This debate will be the morality of the debate.
Thank you for the Pro for accepting this debate.
Round 2 shall be the opening statements and arguments on both sides. Pro shall not debate anything con has posted in round 2 so the argument count is equal.
Round 3 shall be offensive and defensive arguments on both sides.
Round 4 shall be offensive and defensive arguments on both sides. Neither debater shall bring up anything the other said in round 2 without first starting the argument in round 3.
Let us begin!
The boy scouts of America should not have to open its program to homosexual member or leaders. Scholarship programs are allowed to only accept people based on their ethnicity or race. So why is it not okay to only allow people based upon their sexuality?
Furthermore, lifting the ban can be detrimental to the program. If parents were to hear that their son was sleeping in a tent with homosexual kids they may demand to have them separated, which is completely reasonable. This would prove to harm the program by forcing them to have more staff, funding, etc. to accommodate for these homosexual members.
The final argument I have to present is that it would hurt the homosexual members. We have all been kids at one time, and some of us still are. You all know how it is. Kids are CRUEL and destroy people just on small differences than the accepted 'Normal'. If homosexual people were apart of the BSA there would undoubtedly be bullying, teasing, cruel pranks, etc. against the homosexual members.
It isn't fair that homosexual people are discriminated upon by their peers; but that is what life is. Life is UNFAIR!
Thank you again pro for accepting the challenge! YOUR TURN :D

So are you referring to gay scout leaders? Because gay members are already allowed into the scouts, just not gay scout leaders. Or are you arguing against that status quo?
