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being lost as traditional support is withdrawn.
