When it comes to gays and the Boy Scouts, President Obama and the youth organization he serves as honorary president have agreed to disagree.
The White House expressed disapproval Friday of photographs showing gay-rights activists, guests of President Obama, making obscene gestures at the portrait of President Reagan during a gay-pride reception at the White House last week.
Less than halfway through his first term, President Obama has appointed more openly gay officials than any other president in history.
He has no plans to resign as honorary president, White House spokesman Shin Inouye said.
"While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in a respectful manner," said White House spokesman Shin Inouye. "Most all do. These individuals clearly did not. Behavior like this doesn't belong anywhere, least of all in the White House."
