Boy Scouts of America is a name most Americans recognize and have revered for over 100 years. How has a privately funded organization developed a reputation that prepares young boys for manhood? It is easy: They have a business model that has rules and regulations that all adhere to when they join and go through the whole program.

I was a "Boy" Scout, and it was one of the highlights of my life. Well, here comes a highly vocal and heavily financed group of gay people demanding that they be allowed to join. They have enough money to buy all the media coverage to change the rules to suit themselves.

I have become irritated and tired of minority groups yelling and shoving things down my throat just because they can. What ever happened to the majority who are sitting by watching Rome burn?
