You're not honestly suggesting gay scouts don't uphold a duty to God, are you?

You're not honestly suggesting being attracted to the same sex has anything to do with morality, are you?

Most Scouts, myself included, joined the BSA from Cub Scouts at age 11, in a pre-pubescent time period. He's probably interested in camping, learning knots, and all of the other wonderful activities other Scouts hold.

You're basically saying that as they learn about who they find attractive, their 'innocent' mindset vanishes. So for the scout who joins at an 'innocent' time only to later be kicked out through no fault of his own is a false standard.

Why should that Scout voluntarily quit if he's upholding the Scout Oath and Law?

"Writing for the majority, Chief Justice Burger articulated a three-part test for laws dealing with religious establishment. To be constitutional, a statute must have "a secular legislative purpose," it must have principal effects which neither advance nor inhibit religion, and it must not foster "an excessive government entanglement with religion."

I'll take a Supreme Court Justice's understanding of intent over yours. State-based placement of religious texts is about as entangling as one can get.
