I’m not sure what may have prompted this exchange, other than the Boy Scouts reiterating their position on avowed homosexual leaders, but Christian News Network reports:
A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scout’s current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.
Read the whole thing. It’s a bit confusing because Romney is apparently standing by his 1994 position in which he said:
“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during (a 1994) debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”
In summary, it seems Romney (a) opposes same-sex marriage, (b) supports homosexual adoption, (c) privately favors the idea of openly gay Boy Scout leaders, but (d) supports the Boy Scouts “deciding what they want to do” on whether or not to have openly homosexual leaders.
