And now for some good news...

It took two years of careful review, but they did it.

The news couldn't have been more encouraging for families seeking to raise their children without having the homosexual agenda in their face.  From the Fox News article:
An 11-member special committee, formed discreetly by top Scout leaders in 2010, "came to the conclusion that this policy is absolutely the best policy for the Boy Scouts," the organization's national spokesman, Deron Smith, told The Associated Press.
Naturally, the homosexual and transgender community isn't altogether pleased with a conclusion that protects the rights of parents to raise their children in an environment where they can choose when to discuss sexual relations -- or at the very least, allow children to participate in organizations that don't condone such bahavior as "moral" and upright.
Homosexual and transgender activists push to participate in events with 12-18 year old boys have decided to submit petitions to be "one of the guys" and volunteer for the Boy Scouts.  Some have even gone so far as to decry the current situation so much, you almost want to offer a block of cheese to go with the whine, as evidenced in this Los Angeles Times op-ed:
It's not as though Scout meetings are hothouses of talk about sexual orientation. There are badges for American Business, American Cultures and American Labor, but none for American Sexuality. The Scouts have every right to say that discussions of sexuality belong in the family, not in the den meeting.
That's right.  That's the way it should be.
Christians have repeated it over and over that the homosexual agenda will never be content at mere "acceptance" into society.  Their goal is to wipe out any sort of opposition whatsoever, whether it's Sunday services or long-standing organizations such as the Boy Scouts.
For one, I'm glad to see the Boy Scouts and their leadership stand by their oath. 
No doubt the homosexual and transgender movement will continue to grab for opportunities to insert themselves into this prestigious organization.  They can try all they want -- parents will continue to protect their children regardless.
I hope you'll join me in thanking the Boy Scouts for their courageous stand against the lowest common denominator approach to moral values by sending them a short note of thanks.  It will only take 30 seconds, and it'll be a great reminder that we all stand with and are so proud of their leadership.
