I think he's getting material for his next shock book.

It's possible. Proper book research can take years.

Yet - I doubt it.

I don't know.  A book that deals with the Boy Scouts and homosexuality could get quite a paying crowd. :pondering:

Sounds like the deeper realms of fan fic. Frightening.

Yes, 4H is another good program. Very active in our more rural areas.

Famous name leads boy scouts in gay change - Girl Scout news, too

I just saw this posted on Facebook by the liberal sister of a liberal FB "friend" of mine. I'll do what I can to protect their identities:
Quote
My daughter H__ is working on her Girl Scout silver award project. The project must be a self-sustaining community service project.

 LGBTQ civil rights and marriage equality are important to her, so she decided to create a website listing resources for LGBTQ teens who are at-risk of becoming homeless or falling into drug dependancy because they are a very vulnerable group. When the local Girl Scout Council found out about this, they asked to meet with her. This is not a requirement for the silver award; this was unique to H__'s project. The reason was not explicitly stated.

 She met with a representative, argued her case and received permission to proceed in spring. H__ has been doing research on at-risk LGBTQ youth and places that offer services to these young people. Her hope is to let them know that there are people who care and places they can go. She wants to prevent suicide, homelessness, drug abuse and forced prostitution among teenagers. Recently, we learned the person who approved her project is no longer with the council. Once again, the council is questioning H__'s project. She now is required to write a proposal -- again, not ordinarily required for a silver project -- and show how this project will be sustainable. To do that, she needs to partner with a group.

 The council should be ashamed to teach her to be afraid instead of a leader and to value PR over hurting human beings. She needs to find a group willing to partner with her so she can jump through another hoop and get on with the business of being a leader and helping others. We are blessed with an INCREDIBLE, supportive troop leader in L___, who has been behind H__ and advocated strongly for her. She needs help. Please share this. If you would like to partner with H___, send me an email at ___, and H__ will get back to you.
Good grief.

Instead of doing actual research, it appears she's promoting the lifestyle. Confirmation bias is apparent. She should put her money on journalism.
