The Scouts have always affirmed the importance of high moral
conduct. As they clearly have stated, BSA places great emphasis
on strong family values as being necessary components of a
healthy society.

As persons of faith (belief in God is another Scout requirement),
parents of Scouts take seriously such words as honor, "morally
straight" and reverent. What should such parents tell their boys
when advocates for a type of sexual behavior they find immoral
now demand tolerance and affirmation?

This is not a matter of "tolerance." Race and ethnicity are benign
qualities that have nothing to do with a person's character.
Homosexuality is, by definition, about sexual attraction and
conduct, things about which most Scout parents have serious
moral concerns.
