Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker opened his presidential candidacy speech with a story from his time in Boy Scouts, and he frequently cites being an Eagle Scout to illustrate his Americana appeal and preparedness.Walker did not elaborate on what the children were being protected from, but given his absolute hatred of gay rights, I would presume that he did not mean that gays would feed the kiddies to wild animals or throw them over waterfalls.
But the Boy Scouts of today is quickly becoming an organization Walker may not recognize.
The Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Committee voted unanimously this week on a directive that would allow gay adults to serve as employees and troop leaders.
In response to the vote, Walker told IJReview:
“I was an Eagle Scout, my kids have been involved, Tonette (Walker) was a den mother.
“I have had a lifelong commitment to the Scouts and support the previous membership policy because it protected children and advanced Scout values.”
