Commentator Speaks Against Boy Scouts Response to Gay Troop Leaders
The Boy Scouts of America have been at the forefront of the media lately. A proposed ban is in motion to ban troops from having gay scout leaders. There is also a motion that is proposing that gay leaders will be allowed, but people who are not comfortable with it are allowed to create their own groups. People proposing the ban are afraid that gay equals child molester. It is a sad world when people equate the two as they are nothing alike. One legal analyst is standing up for what she believes is right.
Legal expert Sunny Hostin is adamant that if we let groups go their separate ways if they are not comfortable with have a gay scout leader, we are giving them the freedom to discriminate at will. The ban on gay scout leaders is discrimination, plain and simple. But if they were allowed to lead and others could form a new group because they don’t like it that is forming discrimination too. It seems like forming a new clique in high school.
Hostin states that the ban is ridiculous because it is allowing closed-minded people to win and is not teach others good morals. She brings up the point that in history they said that it was a sin against nature for interracial couples to marry, but the world didn’t end so far. She said they call it a sin to marry the same s*x, but that has been happening quite often lately, and again, the sky is not falling. So what is to say that everything would be ruined if gay men are allowed to lead troops in the Scouts?
In this day and age you would think that lawmakers would want peace, but when they side with religious groups and try to tell people what is a sin or what is moral and immoral, all it stirs up are fights and arguments.
