I met a young man (boy) who was obviously gay. His dad got sick thinking about it. His dad told me "why would my son be gay with all the scrutiny that he will go through". This opened my eyes. I used to think it was a choice until I met this boy. The scouts will/are changing. They will thin and many will be left without churches to meet in. In 2-3 years they will rebound and be stronger than ever. Instead of homophobia and prejudice I think we all could use some tolerance. I am the father of 3 very heterosexual boys. I would be very proud if they wanted to be scouts today, yesterday and tomorrow.
