Lord Robert Baden Powell - Boy Scouts Founder - Gay???

Who is Robert Baden-Powell? Born Feb 22, 1857 in England was the Founder of the World Scout Movement. Click here for Bio He created the Boy Scouts in 1907.

Even though he was married (with 3 children), there have been circumstantial evidences suggesting that he may have some erotic interest in men. This is definitely controversial and certainly not widely discussed or brought up by the Boy Scouts of America.
The internet has a plethora of information about the alternative lifestyle of Lord Baden-Powell. More Info.

In my opinion, I admire this man - his history, his vision, his legecy.
The boy scouts has been a major influence in my childhood and its something I will always treasure. But today - where being gay and athetist is more acceptable and tolerated, how could the BSA ignore these identities and facts??
Boys and Girls are children and they all need guidance and direction. How can an organization refuse membership to children just because they identify themselves as being gay or athetist. They keep referring to their policy and belief that these "lifestyles" are not Biblically based.

The BSA is like some of the slimy politicians of today - these politicians would quote and proclaim the founding fathers of our Constitution as being Biblically-inspired.
And yet - keep in mind how discriminatory several of our Founding Fathers were - many of them owned and traded Slaves and treated women as second class unfit to vote and hold a job.

THe boy scouts don\'t screen kids to keep gays out. But they do prevent openly gay men from positions of authority. Gay men are attracted to the same sex, and that may include boys. From the Washington Times:

If a scout announces openly that he is gay - he will be ousted. If he declares he is gay before he joins - he would not be allowed a scout.
And straight men are attracted to the opposite sex, and that may include girls. Whats your point?

If you are playing the Pedophilia Card - the notion that gay men are more likely than straight men to be child molesters - this is a MYTH!
