After a two-year internal debate, the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday unanimously reaffirmed its policy that does not "grant membership" to open or avowed homosexuals or persons who engage in behavior that would become "a distraction to the mission" of the century-old organization for boys, teens and men.
In the Boy Scout oath, a young man promises to keep himself morally straight. Despite pressure from homosexual activists, that pledge will continue to mean something.
The camp director "said I was deserving to be there, but he had to follow the policy of BSA," Mr. Jones told the New York Daily News.
Separately, on Sunday, Eric Jones, 19, lost his job as a counselor at a Missouri Boy Scout camp after he told the camp director he was gay.
