    If the BSA is stalling, it means that the answer is not clear cut to them.

    It means that they are weighing their decision in terms of dollars, rather than what’s right or wrong.

    Discrimination is wrong, but the BSA are willing to be wrong, if it means that they get more money from right-wing haters.

  4. The BSA’s dilemma is that they are steadily loosing $ and public support because of there current policies but are scared of alienating the providers of their meeting places (mostly churches) and remaining members and supporters. They have only themselves to blame for not doing the right thing years ago.
