Is there something about being a modern conservative that makes one’s grasp of logic go away? [“Boy Scouts take steps to oust gay leader of Seattle troop,” Local News, April 1]
Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith states, “[homosexuality] is not discussed unless it is deliberately injected into Scouting.” He, and the Boy Scouts in general, have apparently lost track of the fact that they have a rule banning gay people from leading the scouts.
Making such a rule is discussing it. Is he trying to say that someone else injected that prohibition into scouting and that the Boy Scouts didn’t inject it deliberately?
I can assure them that most gay people are sick to death of talking about their sex lives and, like most people, don’t generally do so unless someone else, like the Boy Scouts, injects it into the conversation.
