The Scouts have a Constitutional right to determine their own membership. The Supreme Court has deemed it so. So why is it that now, as they choose to reconsider the terms of their own membership, is it necessarily being "forced" upon them? Don't they have a right to include gay people, as per the same Constitutional right that allowed them to exclude them? Could it just be that in this day and age, being exclusionary to gays is not only considered old-fashioned but just plain wrong? States have legalized gay marriage everywhere, using courts, legislatures, and ballot boxes. Prominent gay actors, newscasters, politicians, and even athletes are a part of our culture, and show that this is being accepted more and more.
