core value - money. This sudden turn about from just over seven months ago seems to be rather coincidental in juxtaposition to the many Non-Profits and corporate foundations that have announced they will no longer fund the BSA because of their discriminatory policy toward gays. Most of the guys in BSA HQ in Dallas probably don't give a rat's ass about the actual scouts. They've had files of sex abusers that rivals the Catholic Church's and I've never heard of any prosecutions. Instead they care about keeping the gravy train rolling. Given the way they are supposedly setting this up - letting the local organizations decide - it still allows them to have troops sponsored by conservative churches and religious organizations that exclude gays and other troops sponsored by more liberal churches and secular organizations to do allow gays.

I guess they think this way they can still solicit funds from the religious organizations who oppose gay membership by saying it's a local issue. Not sure how well that's going to work out for them given the crap-storm that's already happened.
