From the "Everything I learned about life, I Learned from "The Godfather" department":
It's like when Sonny insinuated that he would go for Sollozzo's deal, even when Vito was going to tell him "no". It shows there's a rift, and rifts can be exploited. Now the gays know all they need is one or two more board members to go there way, and they win.
Absolutely...remember, the Devil was a "sower of discord." Some of the weaker members have obviously chosen the wrong side. The problem is that they may be weak, but they have the Federal Government and the media behind them. By May, there will either be an open "schism" in the Scouts, or there will be total capitulation, forcing those who don't agree to go off and form their own organizations.
Fortunately, I think there are a lot of creative people dedicated to the education of youth who might actually welcome the challenge.
Baden-Powell is probably upchucking in his grave even as we speak, however.
