FWIW, (and I know I'm a bit nuts):

According to the data provided on Boy Scouts of America's website, their membership declined by 21% between 2000 and 2010 (the most recent figures I could find there). In Canada the drop was 46% over the same period.

Because of the gays? I think you need more data to conclude that.

I can't really think of anyone among my peers, or my kids' peers, who were Scouts. It's just not that much of a thing here. Though my wife was a star with the Girl Guides when she was a young 'un.
