If some bishops are nervous about how to react to the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to admit gay Scouts, they need only go to the website of the archdiocese of Seattle, where they will find this fine statement on the issue. It strikes just the right note and reaches the only sane conclusion. Bravo to the Washington bishops.
