"We do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avow homosexuals. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to develop a character and leadership skills and [for] the youth of today to become the leaders of tomorrow. And anything that distracts from that mission, distracts from what our program is."

-- Ohio River Valley Boy Scouts executive Bob Drury on the organization's decision to oust a lesbian mother from leading her son's Boy Scout chapter. Personally, while I think discriminating against her is entirely wrong, I can't fathom why a lesbian mother would enroll her son in an organization that has a history of hating and discriminating against gays and lesbians - including going all the way to the Supreme Court to win the right to discriminate against a minority group.
