Collins' courage
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

A profile in courage: NBA center Jason Collins publicly acknowledging that he is gay. He is now a positive example for gay youth and may save some precious lives in the process.

A profile in cowardice: the Boy Scouts of America and any church or group that supports their policy of excluding adult gay leaders.

Under this policy, Collins could not lead a Boy Scout troop.

Think about it.
