Dealing with Boy Scouts of America and the latest verdict.

It seems that the Boy Scouts of America has made a verdict to allow gay boys in, though still hold the ban on gay adults.  Boy Scouts of America has been a great program to allow boys to learn about the world, themselves, religion, community, nature, self-worth, etc. 

Its obvious that some groups would not be happy with that decision to allow some gay boys instead of lifting the whole ban entirely or keeping the ban to not allow gay boys/adults at all.  To say I was one of those people that was against to allow gay boys into the BSA.  Though over time I have thought about it and contemplated and realized that there are just as human as I am and should be allowed to participate in Boy Scouts, whereas I do agree not to allow gay adults in.  It is geared more to those who are 16 and younger. 

I know this is a touchy topic to where some void talking about it.  Not talking about is not going to make the problem go away.  This issue will effect all of us when it comes into affect on January 1, 2014. 

If one does have any comments please be considerate of others that may read it.  This is solely by myself and has no connection with the LDS church.
