Remember we are talking about a PRIVATE organization.

So it is the Gays and gay supporters that are being the bullies here, trying to force acceptance their views and behaviors onto a private organization.

Bullies are bullies regardless of number or size.

BSA is not pushing their private views on anyone who is not a member, they are not the bullies.

Perry has courage. Obama has none.

So only this that you deem to "be on the right path" deserve to be treated with "respect"?

@the truth
If gays are.being bullies because they seek encussion then your demanding that the BSA adhere to your wishes would be what exactly?

All in the eye of the beholder I think.

Well said and well done Gov Perry! Utah Gov Herbert ought to follow up with a similar statement!!

Unless I am missing something, "The Gays" are not pushing the BSA to do anything. "The Gays" do not have that much clout. How could they? society has repressed and vilfied them for two thousand years.

The ones who are promoting the change are: Intel, Emerson, Verizon, 3M, Bank of America, UPS, Pfizer,, etc. etc. I never knew these companies were gay enterprises. More power to them.

Start another scouting program for gays. It's just that simple. BSA doesn't have a monopoly on scouting.
