"Gates, Gays, and the Boy Scouts"

Kevin D. Williamson, "The Soul of a Bureaucrat" (NRO, May 24, 2015) concludes with the paragraph:
With the Marine Corps or the Boy Scouts of America, the question of what is good is not necessarily the same as the question of what is good for the organization. But you’d need a different sort of man than Robert Gates to discern that distinction, and a better sort of man to act on it.
