The bottom line on this: Obama is inserting like-minded people into organizations to further his own agenda. He is trying to change the rules.
But if successful in changing the BSA rules to embrace openly gay leaders, they will effectively doom the BSA. Ever since the United Way chose to cut their support/funding of the Boy Scouts (I no longer contribute to the United Way), the major contributors/supporters are church-affliated organizations.
Those organizations will stop funding, and the BSA will die.
Funny--even from a non-religious perspective, the policy is only to prevent the sexualization of Scouts by predatory leaders. How many lawsuits have been avoided by preventing (some) leaders from being in close contact with these boys?
