I was personally at the press conference for the pro-gay side today.
I was moved by the stories of many of the folks I met.
Gay has won.
The Scouts will come along eventually.
The Religious Right can threaten whatever, but, let's be honest....gay has won.
Watch The NBC News Today Show in the morning to catch a great interview with a 16 year old gay young man that I later had supper with tonight in a small group of pro gay scouting folks.
He said "What? At 18, I turn into a pedophile?" I was floored that he said that on national tv, but, it was just what needed to be said.
My friend, Logan's father, Dave, and his son, Joe, road 1800 miles to support gays in scouting. Outstanding coverage was given by Gannett and other groups. Thank you, Gannett, for being the first to take the story national on Dave's ride, with all your various properties!
Here's Dave's Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/oldscoutspromise
and his bloghttp://oldscoutspromise.blogspot.com/
There's going to be documentary as well by Dave and supporters. We could use your assistance by like and shares, or money, or just spreading the word. It's not over. Adults need to be there, too. Gay scouts won't magically turn to scum at 18. That's just plain silly and not workable, but, today was a step in the right direction. No person should be made to feel less than because of their sexual preference.
National Geographic was there, as well, and something should be coming down the pipe soon from them.
Lots of national and local media.
For those who helped, THANK YOU. Thank you very much. For those who are going to help...THANK YOU.
