Just say no.
Apparently there is some concern about that.
Churches and other religious organizations will determine whether or not to accept homosexual adults as leaders in chartered troops, packs and other Boy Scout units, now that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has removed its ban on homosexual adults from serving in leadership and volunteer positions throughout the organization.
Bishop Robert Guglielmone of Charleston, S.C., the episcopal liaison for the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS), told the Register the NCCS was “cautiously optimistic” that Catholic organizations could still be involved with the BSA, so long as the policy on paper became the policy in practice.
“We have to look at how all this plays out,” the bishop said. “The NCCS has indicated we can use this program and keep it within the parameters of Catholic teaching based on what is said and what is promised.” - NCRegisterAt face value, there's a sense of irony in all of this.
Considering the recent discussions which have taken place about admitting gay/ssa men to seminary and ordination - within the parameters of Vatican guidelines of course. Yet as Bishop Guglielmone pointed out in his statement, so ought it to be for seminaries: "So long as the policy on paper became the policy in practice." Yet we know that hasn't always been the case when it came to admitting homosexuals to seminaries and holy orders.
Things are different now of course.
However, if it turns out that Catholic troops end up making exceptions, local chapters might consider adapting the Vatican guidelines for seminaries. For instance, when a gay Boy Scout grows up and returns to accept a troop leadership position:
Different, however, would be the case in which one were dealing with homosexual tendencies that were only the expression of a transitory problem - for example, that of an adolescence not yet superseded. Nevertheless, such tendencies must be clearly overcome at least three years before advancing to Troop Leader.
