My sons were never in the boy scouts because of this reason.
We taught freedom in my household, freedom to be who you are and what you are.
I remember it being brought up once that the boys wanted to join, and both my x and I looked at each other and then sat them down to explain something
we had avoided until some issue came up.
Some people are still living in the dark ages, and until they can come out and drop the bigotry under the disguise of religion, there would be no boy
scouts, and honestly, that is to bad, because I was a boy scout, and I learned a lot from it.
People are free to believe whatever they want in the USA, to be whoever they want, to become whatever they can become. It is rules that hold down
certain parts of the population that help to spread hatred, it is way beyond a simple matter of religion, even if people won't admit it. I see it
every day, because of color, sexual preference, religious beliefs,smokers, the list could go on and on and the only way to fix it is to give equality
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
A Scout is:
Come out of the dark ages and let people be free to be who they are.
I really don't think God cares if you are straight or gay,
the homophobic will say otherwise though and hide under religion.
And there are a lot of them.
