One of the key tenets of Scouting is "duty to God." Seeing that their god opposes homosexuality that means, a scout would not be able to be homosexual. Seeing that they are a private organization that is religious in nature, it should have the right to say that homosexuals can't join. Look at it this way, if the Klan wanted to have a float in the Gay Pride parade, should they be allowed or do you think it would conflict too much with the ideals of it?
I personally think that it is fair for homosexuals to be banned from the Boys Scouts of America because it could affect young boys as well as society overall. I personally think that it is fair for homosexuals to be banned from the Boys Scouts of America because it can affect the organization.
While the boy scouts decision to ban homosexuals from their troop is mean-spirited and discriminatory, it is fair to allow organizations and associations of individuals to choose with whom they associate. A free society does not mean "free, so long as I like it" it means free in a sense that some may choose different values than others, and the boy scouts decision to ban boy scouts is as valid and fair as a GLBT organization which may choose to ban straight members from their ranks.
Yes, I believe that it is fair for homosexuals to be banned from the Boy Scouts of America, because the Boy Scouts are opening themselves up to a great deal of legal liability by allowing homosexuals. There will be sexual harassment, and there will be problems with camping with boys in the woods. The Boy Scouts should be allowed to choose their own standards.
The Boy Scouts should be an all inclusive organization, and that most definitely applies to gays. While it is true that, as a rpivate organization, they can do what they want, not allowing people in based on their sexuality is discrimination, something that is definitely both illegal and immoral. for people.
To ban someone from the Boy Scouts, or anything for that matter because of their sexual orientation is just completely wrong. A person cannot help being attracted to the same sex. This by no mean says that a homosexual male has sexual feelings for a male child. A homosexual male has feelings for someone who is an adult like any other normal human being.
