It's a sad day for civil rights.
After 2 years of evaluation, the Boy Scouts of America has finally come to a decision regarding its years-long ban on homosexual members, and the news is not good.
The Boy Scouts have decided to continue the discriminatory policy.
This means they will continue to ban openly gay boys from being scouts, grown men from being masters, and parents from participating with their children.
Come on, guys! It's 2012! How many people have to tell you how wrong you are before you see it?!
Stars Ricky Martin, Josh Hutcherson, and Julianne Moore publicly condemned the Scouts' position, along with many business leaders and even several Eagle Scouts, the top level scouts can reach.
GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said it best:
"It's unfair policies like this that contribute to a climate of bullying in our schools and communities. Since when is that a value worth teaching young adults?"
The Boy Scouts are definitely NOT getting badges in equality, justice, or common frikkin' sense!
