    and what happens when the gay scout reaches 18?
    kicked out presumably
    its almost like an inverse age of consent
    the ruling is basically insane
    cant see it lasting indefinitley

    “the US President has also been honorary president for the Boy Scouts of America”
    So why doesn’t he let them know that if they don’t remove all such ludicrous restrictions quickly he will reject that honorary title?

    1. Quite right.

      This further highlights the need in the US for LGBT inclusion in existing equalities legislation. We don’t want to be a special case, but the “Christian” led right are intent on that being the case.

    Obama is a creepy closet-queen. Gay “leaders” will only lead boys to depravity & perversion.

    1. Funnily enough, you sound like a closet-case yourself.

      It’s ok to be gay you know. Stop being a hateful bigot and accept who you are.

    2. Childish provocative crap. Get a life.

  4. I have many criticisms of Obama, but he is really turning up trumps for lesbian and gay people. Well done, Mr President!

  5. I again have to wonder how the US can be so backwards banning gay staff is even legal – let alone having the endorsement of the country’s president.
