Bradley was not the least bit prejudiced against gays, but he was appalled to learn that his state's Boy Scout council had decided not to enforce the Boy Scouts of America's national ban against gay scouts and gay troop, leaders. How come?

Because he thinks that people shouldn't be in a Boy Scout council unless they're willing to follow the Boy Scouts of America's rules? (this seems quite reasonable to me)
Would he be equally upset if his local organisation had decided to allow gay people, but there was no national ban?
Is Bradley gay? Is any specific gay person relevant?
Does Bradley work for the Boy Scouts of America? Is he a Boy Scout? Is he a member of some rival organisation?

was he appalled because he thought something bad would happen? to him? to a scout? to a gay person? to lots of people?

did he think that something good would not happen? to him? to a scout? to a gay person? to lots of people?

presumably he thinks this decision has particular implications - are these financial? political? ethical? racial? religious? educational? romantic?

would he have felt the same way if a different organisation was involved? only an organisation involving children?

is it reasonable for him to be appalled? are his motives altruistic? self interested? criminal?

does he misunderstand something?

What are you doing now professionally? (this seems quite reasonable to me) It doesn't seem reasonable to me if the rules are as outrageous as the ban against gays
Would he be equally upset if his local organisation had decided to allow gay people, but there was no national ban? no
Is Bradley gay? noIs any specific gay person relevant? no
Does Bradley work for the Boy Scouts of America? no Is he a Boy Scout? no Is he a member of some rival organisation? no

so he thought, because they did not uphold this ban, that something bad would happen to him personally? and his sexuality is not relevant - correct?
did he think that, because they made this decision they would make a similar decision on another issue? that more nearly concerned him? that this decision was an indicator of a way of thinking that appalled him?

the bad thing that might happen to him - physical harm? financial harm? emotional harm? loss of earnings? loss of job? loss of clients? death? loss of home? loss of friendships? loss of any personal relationship? loss of an opportunity of some sort? increased workload? increased stress? increased hassle in his life? bas relationships with others? increased costs to his way of living? loss of physical possessions?

are any of these relevant about him - his race? nationality? job? hobby? pets? family? romantic relationships? education? place of residence? types of residence? politics? physical appearance? usual mode of transport? his food? his clothes? language spoken? religion? his mode of entertainment?

so is it right to say that, because the ban was not enforced, his workload might increase? would a gay scout or gay scout leader need to be present in a troop for his workload to go up? or just be possible?

are there any relevant facilities that would need to be provided if there were gay scouts/leaders? changing rooms relevant?

his job: manual? office based? working outside? managerial? professional? in education? scientific? law enforcement? in the military? working for the government? retail? selling something? working with animals? in healthcare?

Did Bradley work with animals?no Did he work alone? What exactly counts as working alone? He was not part of a "team"; his work was individual. He probably also spent most of his working day alone.

so because they did not adhere to the ban he would have to write more? rewrite something he has previously written? write more words on something he had previously written? write something new that he had not been planning to write?

did he have to change the plot in a novel he was writing? was the plot of his novel dependant upon the ban being enforced? was there someone who was being blackmailed? something hiding the fact they were gay? and the lack of a ban meant the person would not have to hide that fact?

Does he write works of fiction? irrel Editorials? see next answer Newspaper articles/columns? columns--& I'm Bradley

******** SPOILER *****************
The National Boy Scout Council in Americas bars "avowed homosexuals" from membership--an appalling policy. When I wrote a column about what you should do if your son wants to be a Boy Scouts, I was all ready to send it off--then I discovered that the Boy Scout Council of my state was resisting the ban. This meant that I had to write another column in a hurry, which I found most distressing. (Let's keep our priorities straight here--so to speak.) Good/bad aftermath: the National Council rejected my state's council for a review of the policy--so I CAN use my original column, after all. Please check out my new puzzle you know where.
