To the Editor:
I’m writing in response to banning gays in the Boy Scouts of America.

Do you know that most, if not all, scout troops are sponsored by churches? Do you really think churches would sponsor a group that disregards the church’s beliefs or doctrine? I doubt it.

Would you, as a gay adult, be willing to support all the local scout troops when the churches withdraw their support? I don’t think so.

Anyhow, why would a middle class gay person be interested in teaching boys from Cub Scouts and Eagle Scouts? I just wonder at your motivation; what is your agenda? Is it just because you can cause mischief?

This is just sad.
Leave scouting alone you whiners!
