Sneaky Jimmy : I had a son abused by a gay scout leader -- along with 11 other boys.It is not a matter of equal rights - it is a matter of protecting boys from this destructive behavior.I know by sad experience what can happen and does happen.

Last time I looked weren't Minnie and Mickey still holding hands? Poor Donald, guess he'll have to resort to...let me see, Pluto or Goofy? The slippery slope continues to get steeper and steeper every day. I agree to the Boycott Disney campaign, but I''m not waiting until 2015.

Why must the organization receive corporate sponsorship at all. I would rather they charge less admission to their parks, focus their money on accessibility within the parks for the disabled/challenged and make their service excellent for the disabled and wish kids. Scholarships for employees (cast members) and their kids.

Does anyone else find it ironic that the Boy Scouts are being sued by adult victims of sexual assaults by their male leaders that happened decades ago and now they are being penalized for not allowing male leaders who may be attracted to adolescent boys.

DonP, a pedophile is a separate thing from being heterosexual or homosexual. In scouting heterosexual women/moms are often in leadership roles, the child are safe as long as the woman isn't a pedophile.
