Applause for BSA

Daily Item

---- — I applaud the Boy Scouts of America's stand against allowing gay Scout leaders into its organization.

By allowing gays to serve as Scout leaders, it is not a question of if a young boy is sexually abused, it is a matter of when.

If men of God, and I'm referring to priests, have abused young boys, it is a safe bet that gay Scout leaders would do the same thing.

If gays are permitted to become a part of this wonderful organization, I would not put a child of mine in harm's way by letting him join the Boy Scouts.
