In the last 13 years, we have really come a long way with recognizining that gay marriages is about equal treatment under the law. We now have over a dozen states that permit gay marriages, and hopefully next month the Supreme Court will knock down DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) which denies most federal benefits to gay couples.
As many people now realize, until this past month the Boy Scouts of America did not allow for openly gay members. Finally, they have voted to change this policy– but not completely. Leaders of the organization are not allowed to be openly gay. Now that makes a lot of sense, train these young boys with the purpose of making them good citizens with leadership skills, but then deny them the right to be part of the very organization that trained them?!?
