Morally Straight: Why the Boy Scout Bans Homosexuals sheds light on the unique history of an American organization that has touched the lives of millions of boys. Through tracing the organization's history in key areas, including sexuality, and membership demography, Basham uncovers key factors which led the Boy Scouts to exclude homosexuals. The author also uses his two decades of experience as a member of the organization to enhance his study. By linking the history of the Boy Scouts to various periods of United States history the reader is afforded a glimpse of how the organization has evolved from an obscure movement to an American institution, and into the increasingly marginalized organization it is today. The evolution of the organization's attitude towards sexuality is also vibrantly recounted. This book investigates the most difficult issue confronting a beloved organization, and shows that the reason controversy exists lies buried in the movement's history.
