ROMNEY SUPPORTS GAY BOY SCOUTS…

August 6th, 2012

From The Washington Post:

In contrast to Obama, Republican candidate Mitt Romney does have a public position on the Scouts’ policy — he politely disagrees with it.

Back in 1994, during a political debate in Massachusetts, Romney said this: “I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

A Romney spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said in an e-mail that this remains Romney’s position today.

The real threat comes from sexual predators, a class of individuals that the Boy Scouts, like the Catholic Church, have been less than perfect in excluding from their ranks: Boy Scout files reveal repeat child abuse by sexual predators.
