I always thought the real battleground was in regard to leaders not scouts themselves. So this is better than I had feared.

Sure, for now.

But once you have openly gay Eagle Scouts who become adults and want to become Scout leaders, how can you seriously exclude them? If they were honorable and trustworthy enough to be Eagle Scouts, they have to be honorable and trustworthy enough to lead a troop.

If this goes through, we'll have gay Scoutmasters within five years.

I agree it is not good. Just better than I feared. To your point being a scout is different than being a leader so I see no problem excluding gays from being leaders. So I don't agree on that one in short term. I do agree with you we may different situation 5 years form now.
