Boy Scouts expelled from school in Seattle

Seattle public schools are cutting ties with the Boy Scouts. The ostensible reason had to do with the "academic rigor" of an outdoor course the Scouts had been offering at the school for some 30 years.

Yeah. Right. When was the last time you heard of a public school cancelling a class because of "academic rigor"? I mean, if we're going to start cutting classes in public schools because of that, we could dramatically shorten the schedule and send kids home early every day.

But the underlying reason appeared to be the Scouts policy not allowing homosexual scoutmasters.

It's funny that no one disassociated themselves from the Boy Scouts when it didn't do enough about pedophile scoutmasters in their ranks, but now institutions are shunning them because they do not allow homosexual scoutmasters. Not protecting boys enough is okay, but trying to protect them too much gets you the boot.

Our schools. Just looking out for the kids.
