The Daily Show’s John Oliver ‘Gaywatches’ The Boy Scouts, France, Russia, and Pope Francis: VIDEO


John Oliver, filling in for Jon Stewart while he's on summer hiatus, is doing a bang-up job, and last night blasted the Boy Scouts for their policy of accepting gay scouts but banning scout leaders, calling it "a tragic end for the merit badge for closet-staying.".

He added, of the policy: "They're happy to welcome anyone with homosexual thoughts up until the age when they're old enough to act on them. That must create an awkward situation at Boy Scout graduation."

Leader: Congratulations Scout. Gay Scouts make us all proud.

Gay Scout: Oh, I'm happy to hear that. I'd like to come back as a leader one day.

Leader: You burn in hell, pervert!

In a special international edition of 'Gaywatch', Oliver also looks at Russia's ban on 'gay propaganda', Pope Francis and the Vatican's 'gay lobby', and the anti-gay marriage protests in France.

How is it that France's anti-gay protests (below) look so much gayer than our pro-gay protests?
