The Rifle Shooting and Shotgun Shooting merit badges teach Scouts how to handle firearms correctly and safely, and give them a very real awareness of how deadly guns are... but gay Scouts won't be allowed that education until May.

11. Between now and May, gay Scouts won't be allowed to cook chicken on a spit for their troop.

Or make London broil, chocolate cake, or baked potatoes over a campfire.


14. Gay leaders and Scouts can't sell popcorn door to door.

Or batteries. Girl Scout Cookie Envy manifests itself differently from troop to troop, but gay Scouting members can't do anything about that until May.

17. Gay Scouts and leaders aren't allowed to spend any Saturday morning between now and May in a scratchy tan uniform collecting canned food for strangers.
