Boy Scouts Don't Get Vote

The board of directors for the Boy Scouts of America met this week, but they didn't even vote on the issue of whether to allow homosexuals into their membership. What a pity! The matter was tabled. Hmm. How convenient. The most knowledgable adult Scouters say the pressure is coming from only two of the top directors. What did the other 12 men say?  And what about the outpouring of letters, emails, texts, and phone calls in the days before the meeting?  I'm sure there was an overwhelming amount of support for leaving the 100-year legacy exactly as it stands. But the news media didn't report "our side" and ignored that outpouring. I'm sorry the directors were not brave enough to say either. I wanted them to go "on record" with their views.
