Boy Scouts signal retreat on gay ban

I'm sick of the gay mafia infiltrating and taking down every reputable institution in the US and around the globe. Why can't they have their own Gay Scouts, or create the "LGBT Pioneers" or whatever and leave the rest of us alone? They accuse us of not being tolerant of them, but they are incapable of living up to their own standards of tolerance towards us. They are hypocrites, period.
