The Boy Scouts of America's decision to allow openly gay Scouts has generated a divided response from parents and other officials.
Not surprisingly, a number of conservative pundits and lawmakers quickly denounced the outcome. Among them was Texas Governor Rick Perry, who said he was "greatly disappointed" by the organization's decision.
"The Boy Scouts of America has been built upon the values of faith and family for more than 100 years and today's decision contradicts generations of tradition in the name of political correctness," Perry noted in an email statement.
BSA now stands for Boy Sodomizers of America, because that's what will happen. Mark my words.â�� Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) May 24, 2013
