Currently the Boy Scouts are considering repealing the ban on gay scouts but keeping a ban on gay scout leaders. Essentially, if you get an Eagle Scout badge and are gay, you're banned from scouting when you turn 18. Which is completely nuts. So both Zach and I would love it if you Liked Scouts for Equality on Facebook and shared this. We'll owe you one.
