Scouts vs. Trail Life

I was, and am, appalled by the article about the youth organization based entirely on the fact that the Boy Scouts of America are accepting gay youth (See: “No longer loyal to Scouts, boys join Trail Life”).

At a time when gay marriage is becoming accepted in more states, to form this organization institutionalizing discrimination and bigotry is unbelievable.

To see these innocent 5- and 6-year-olds fed this hatred is incomprehensible. What if one of these children turns out to be gay? Imagine the guilt and humiliation the child would feel having been taught that he will rot in hell.

Sometimes it seems that we have progressed in terms of acceptance of each other. Organizations such as Trail Life make a mockery of this progress.
