Perry Fights Letting Gays in Boy Scouts

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), an Eagle Scout, "said emphatically Saturday that the Boy Scouts of America should not soften its strict policy barring gay members, and dismissed the idea of bending the organization to the whims of 'popular culture,'" the New York Times reports.

Perry's 2008 book, On My Honor, "detailed his deep love for the organization and explained why it should continue to embrace traditional conservative values -- including excluding openly gay members and leaders."
