Former SecDef Robert Gates to Lead Boy Scouts

A few weeks ago the Boy Scouts of America announced that former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates would become the organization’s president next year.  The Associated Press noted

Gates helped oversee the end of the military’s ‘‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’’ policy banning openly gay soldiers. The organization he will help lead has faced its own issues with gays in its ranks. The Boy Scouts, in a process guided by the national executive board, opened its ranks earlier this year to gay Scouts, but not gay leaders.

Homosexual advocates “praised Gates’ appointment.”
