|It seems that there are a few Eagle Scouts throwing their medals back in the faces of the BSA, in support of the gays who came out and lost their own badges.|
It is, of course, being hailed as heroic, "standing up to" the big, bad, bully BSA. Indeed, how dare the Boy Scouts of America stand by their own code of behavior and moral principles when everyone else says they should abandon them.
I'm brought to mind the image of the John Kerry "heroically" throwing his medals over the White House fence.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing at all heroic about swimming with the current. It is the BSA that is taking a heroic stance, sticking by their code, holding their members accountable for their sexual mores and ethics--- and yes, homosexuality is still a choice. No matter how hot and sweaty any particular deviant activity gets you, it is in the end your choice whether or not you participate in it. Not your genes, not your parents, not your upbringing, not your "social environment," not God.
It takes courage to go against the popular zeitgeist. It takes guts and spine to stand with what is morally right, look the entire world in the eye, and say "No, YOU move."
These former eagle scouts are showing none of that. They are gutlessly going along with a loud, tantrum throwing mob that has sworn to ruin anyone that tells them what they are doing is wrong.
