Focus on the Family and Concerned Women for America oppose local autonomy for Boy Scout councils, such as one in Philadelphia that professes tolerance of gay scouts or troop leaders.

…What’s most troubling to [Peter LaBarbera of CWFA] is the fact that gay activists seem to be the only ones demanding that the Boy Scouts include homosexuals.

“I don’t hear a big clamor across America of parents wanting homosexual Scout leaders,” LaBarbera said.

It is likely that LaBarbera knows otherwise. Groups of Philadelphia parents, Unitarians, and agnostics protested the national Boy Scout leadership’s intolerance at its convention, and held a vigil for youth who have committed suicide due to ostracism over their sexuality.
