The new Boy Scouts Of America proposed policy would allow gay or bisexual youth and teens to participate in Scouting, but once they become legal adults, they would be forced out of the Boy Scouts — specifically because they are gay.
This, as we wrote yesterday, is an even more dangerous policy than their current one that just prohibits gays from all level of the Boy Scouts.
Telling gay kids they’re possible pedophiles and thus not able to be Scout Leaders is a terrible message.
The Scouts’ National Council will vote on them measure in May.
