I remember camping out when I was a Boy Scout, sometime back in the Cretaceous Period, and all us young lads were just goofing around, trying to make impromptu hammocks out of the ropes we had all brought along in our backpacks.
For whatever reason, we more or less divided ourselves into two groups to make a competition of it, and it just worked out that one group had most of the guys with their merit badges in knot tying, while the other group seemed to specialize in making it up as they went along.
When the moment of truth came, the hammock created by the one group who followed form and used traditional knots successfully held about a half dozen boys. The one tied by the freewheelers, despite including some impressive Gordian-style knots, unraveled like a cheap sweater.
I recalled this incident when the Boy Scouts of America announced its new policy on homosexuals, in which it’s going to allow self-professed “gay” Scouts to be members, but not allow homosexual adults to be Scout leaders, meaning homosexual Scouts would be kicked out when they turn 18.
I’m sure the Boy Scouts board of directors and the delegates to the national meeting, which has been stacked with homosexual activists, thought they were being clever by creating a compromise. Or maybe it didn’t, and it really intends what will be the obvious result of this cluster screw up.
