However, I also know what measures have been put in place to protect scouts from all predators (and, no, I'm not saying gay people are predators, they're just as likely to be predators as anyone else)

I think this has been a long held misconception, that all gay men are pedophiles. Don't know that started, maybe from older gay men being sugar daddies to younger gay men, I don't know. Seems to be a double standard, old lecherous heteros being a sugar daddy to some college coed is ok?

I really don't care one way or the other about gay scout masters. Like everything else, can they do the job, yes or no. The only big thing I didn't like about the whole argument was the general public trying to force a private organization to do something. Similar to Augusta National and women members.
