A Bad Month for the Boy Scouts

First there was Stephen Cranney noting how the Church's treatment of boys and girls was unequal because of the scouting organization.

Then there was the Boys Scouts of America (BSA) banning squirt guns and water balloons bigger than a ping-pong ball, which got them compared to a nanny state.

Then the President of the Boy Scouts of America announced that they will probably allow homosexual leaders soon.

None of this is good publicity for the BSA.

By the way, the new Cub Scout program launches at the end of the month with some interesting implications. The BSA would not let leaders look at the specifics of the new program until the beginning of this month. There are a number of unpleasant surprises buried in the manuals. These will likely not make the headlines.
