I grew up in the boy scouts.
I do not like the boy scouts of america.
Among many more abstract problems I have with them; They have policies which target (and exclude) homosexuals, athiests, and agnostics. These policies have been taken up to the supreme court and upheld due to the fact that it is a private organization.
|"The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God."
"Boy Scouts of America believes that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed. The conduct of youth members must be in compliance with the Scout Oath and Law, and membership in Boy Scouts of America is contingent upon the willingness to accept Scouting’s values and beliefs."
I have a big problem with these statements, so neither me nor my kids will be supporting an organization which deliberatly and consistantly discriminates against people on the basis of religion or sexual orientation.
