Northeast Iowa Council: Reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy

We, the Scouts and community members of Northeast Iowa urge the Northeast Iowa Council to reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy.

Among service organizations, the Boy Scouts are increasingly isolating themselves with their discriminatory policy. Organizations including the Girl Scouts, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as well as the 4H Club all welcome gay kids as well as adult leaders.

We love the Boy Scouts, but we can’t support this policy. That's why we urge you to speak out against the ban on gay Scouts and leaders and adopt an inclusive policy like other troops, packs, councils, and lodges across the country have done -- so the Boy Scouts can maintain its relevancy, improve recruitment, and truly live by the principles it teaches its members.

NOTE: We encourage everyone to join this campaign, but if you're a current or former Scout or leader, please say so in the "Why People Are Signing" section. Thanks!

      Boy Scout leaders see no honor in ban of gays

      A former area Boy Scout administrator has started an online petition in an effort to persuade the Northeast Iowa Council to reject the national organization's policy that bans gay boys and adults from membership.

      Gay people are still "people." Government accepts them why shouldn't BSA?

      My husband and my sons were scouts. As Allies of LGTB, we can not support an organization that discriminates.

      Discrimination is inethical, immoral and antithetical to American and Boy Scout principles. Stand up for what is right and fair, reject the anti-gay ban. - Committee Chair, Pack 355, Glendale Heights, IL
