According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the anti-gay organization for boys, the Boy Scouts of America collected 2 million cans of food for the hungry and the poor.
While I have not asked anyone in their leadership, there is no indication that they are refusing donations from people based on their sexual preferences; even homosexuals.
The work they did this one day is commendable. There are always poor and hungry folks in need. That said, I would make the argument that the politics of most of the people in Scout leadership tend to block more efficient ways of feeding the poor and the hungry, and more importantly, serve as a firewall for assisting them in breaking their cycle of poverty.
Instead, they ultimately create an atmosphere of bigotry and exclusion, while attempting to feel good about themselves for teaching their children to act as runners between inefficient contributors and needy food-pantries. Thereafter, the pantries suffer from the impoverished politics of the Scout central leadership.
The boys just do what they are told, and fundamentally, the poor and the needy are held down by Scouts because of their antiquated belief systems in relation to 21st century realities.
In spite of themselves, the Scout leaders get to go to bed with a smile on their faces and delusional contentment thinking they made the world a better place.
At the very least, many of the Scout leaders could do as my friend Mr. Wulff said, "A great exercise at the next troop meeting might go something like this: 'Boys, we collected 2 million canned goods last week. It was an amazing outpouring of generosity that was made possible by your volunteer service and I commend you all for your work. Tonight though, we're going to talk about something else: What are those people going to eat NEXT week?'"
But, that is besides the point. It doesn't matter how much "good" you do when your participation practices are exclusionary based on race, sexual orientation, etcetera. (In the case of BSA, it's sexual orientation.) The ultimate message received as the boys achieve adulthood is that it's acceptable to be a persecutor for no other reason than a person's sexual preference, and that makes the 21st Century Boy Scouts of America little more than a bigot factory.
Given the recent revalations of their hidden history of pedophilia and their continued anti-gay acceptance, I don't see the BSA as being significantly different than the KKK.
Hell, even the KKK adopts a highway every now and then.
