Support the Boy Scouts

From the Philadelphia Daily News:

Ronnie Polaneczky weighed in on the city's side in the latest controversy concerning the Boy Scouts ("Boy Scouts in a jam," Aug. 2).

I'm waiting for the day when a DN columnist does something really rad and stands up for traditional values (the horror!) and the Boy Scouts (shudder).

But I have a question on Ms. Polaneczky's statement that the city has embraced principle while "the Cradle" (meaning the local Boy Scout council) cannot. In the land of political correctness, does an embrace of principle only count as such when one supports an item on the left's agenda (in this case, acceptance of homosexual scout leaders)?

Out here in Realityville, we see your columnist looking at it the wrong way round. The Scouts are the ones embracing principle.
