We are proud of him because we try to raise him to always stick up for someone who is being bullied or picked on and that everyone has the right to be treated equally. He is doing just that. He wants to stay in Scouts and we support that, but as he gets older and if the ban stays the way it is and he wants to quit because he doesn't agree with the way things are, we will support him in that as well.
My hope is the BSA realizes that people are people, homosexual or not, and by keeping the ban they may be missing out on some great Scouts or leaders. If a church threatens to "kick" a troop out of its location if homosexuals are allowed in Scouts, they should be ashamed, not of homosexuals, but of themselves.
