Region views on Boy Scouts
Timothy Madden, Valparaiso | "I think it's a step in the right direction. Look how long it took to get there. Maybe in another couple of years they will allow the gay leaders as well."
Ralph Brown, Cedar Lake | "It doesn't affect me one way or the other. I would have no problem with it."
Lisa Williams, Saulk Village | "I don't think it has anything to do with social performace. It wouldn't affect their job or membership."
Mike Pawlicki, Munster | "I'm fine with it. I don't a problem with it at all."
Laura Wynn, Merrillville | "It's important to be all-inclusive and not discriminate. Exclusion is not living up to what this country is about. There should be no discrimination for anyone."
Justin Wythe, Cedar Lake | "I have no problem with it. I was a Boy Scout from 8 years old. I don't see why being gay from a child to an adult would make a difference being involved in the Scouts. "
