Good people can disagree

So Obama's expressed his opposition to the Boy Scout gay ban (while not resigning as honorary president of the organization), and their response is that "good people can disagree."

Fine. Let's stipulate that good people can disagree on the subject. (In fact, I don't care whether those who support the ban are "good people," or how they even define goodness in the first place.)

It's evasive bullshit. The subject is the morality of the policy. The policy is immoral. It's bigoted and harmful. Supporting bigoted and harmful policies is bad regardless of who does it.
