Applause for BSA

Daily Item

---- — I applaud the Boy Scouts of America stand against allowing gay scout leaders into their 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 Boys Scouts.
