Website Supports Scouts Ban of Homosexuals

PROVO, UTAH -- A Provo, Utah man who started a web site to support the Boy Scouts ban on gays is creating quite a stir. Gavin Grooms, who started the web site on September 1, says he has received national attention and support for his cause.

Grooms says that the ruling by the Supreme Court created a backlash when it affirmed Boy Scouts right to ban gays from becoming leaders in the organization. Many supporters have pulled their financial support and that will have a negative impact on the group unless other sources are found.The site will offer advocacy and monetary support to the Scouts and solicits donations to replace the monies being lost as traditional support is withdrawn.
