11. The Mormon church is heavily vested in the Boy Scouts, as are the Catholics.

Many persons inside Scouting believe that just like the American military, it is time for Scouting to enter the 21st century and accept Scouts and leaders of same-sex identities. Unfortunately, the Executive levels of Scouting are filled with homophobes, many of which are directly tied to the Mormon and Catholic churches and their archaic attitudes are directly attributable to religious bigotry.

Here's a link to Zack Wahls, an Eagle Scout raised by two Lesbian Moms. This young man is awesome.
