I think it’s wrong to be rude to people just because they have different beliefs than you.
I hate how everyone is like “be open-minded”, yet those people are usually the most close-minded.

It is a BS cop out. If she has stayed “informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.” Then why did she ever agree in the first place? The Boy Scouts stance on the issue has been in the news for years. It isn’t something new. More likely she didn’t care as long as their check was good until she started to get too much pressure from somewhere, and caved.
