I'd like to commend the Philadelphia Government for taking such a bold stand. The Boy Scouts have long been a saving-grace for many inner-city, at-risk boys; however their bigoted policy against open homosexuality creates a discriminatory climate where it's Scout's are led to believe that the LGBT community are second-class citizens and un-Godly.

This was a difficult but very important decision for the Philadelphia Government and they should be congratulated for making the right one.
