Nothing for Scouts

In "No gay Boy Scouts" (Forum, Feb. 7), Jim Green is upset that the "gay lobby" is trying to reduce donations to the Boy Scouts of America.

For most of my life, I lived in Salt Lake County, and I always supported the Boy Scouts. Nevertheless, I feel all boys should have the same opportunities that Scouting provides.

I stopped donating to the Boy Scouts of America when I realized that gays were banned from being members or leaders. I did this not because of any "gay lobby" but because I believe all our children should be treated equally. Gay children are also children of God.
