Re "Boy Scouts delay vote on gays" (Page A7, Feb. 7): So it is somehow okay to prevent openly gay Boy Scouts from being in the troops? I would like to know where in the Constitution it says that you can prevent someone from joining an organization based on who they love. How can you look at a little boy, and tell him he doesn't belong? That he can't be who he is? How would he feel knowing that his community doesn't support him?
The Boy Scouts of America are supposed to offer support, guidance, friendship, acceptance and several other lifelong skills. I don't see any support for gays here. Nor do I see guidance, friendship, acceptance, or virtually anything else. I am only 13, yet I know this is wrong.
