    This is terrible. Not only did they cave but they caved after they remained strong for so many years. It is obviously not about their ,principles because they claim they cannot change their policy on atheists because they are a religious organization but they are willing to change their attitude towards one of our Saviors principles that they used to call sin. There is little doubt in my mind that soon the leaders will use nuances that support our Federal Gov'ts view of homosexuality rather than God's. The only good thing about this is they are becoming more local and community based.

    This is about money and another example of money people controlling our values because we convince ourselves we must have money to function. I am sure the BSA could live with a lot less money and still help to develope young men with Christian values. I will not support the BSA in the future and I will reconsider my association with ATT These things make me pray for our impending economic crisis to come soonj so we become more interested in doing God's will than having enough money to do His will.

    In all of the history of the Boy or Cub scouts have I ever seen anyone ask if the applicant was gay. Sex was not the god of secular forces as it is these days.

    If the BSA caves in on this issue, they're finished as an organization. How could they stand for any moral issue when they might condone the sin of Sodom. If they stay strong on this issue, they will certainly survive and thrive.

    How low and hypocritical our society has sunk?

    They protest the alleged molestations by our Priests, yet they want to allow perverts to enter the boy scouts and to easy targets for these perverts???
