National Capital Area Council: Reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy

We, the Scouts and community members of National Capital Area Council urge the 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!

      Anyone should be able to join the scouts, and not be discriminated.

      As an Eagle Scout (Troop 276, Los Angeles Area Council), this policy of the National office of BSA disappoints me personally & shames the organization as a whole. Several of my best friends in the Scouts have come out of the closet as adults, & it's sad that BSA wouldn't welcome them back as leaders.

      Because I agree that the Boy Scouts should truly live by its principles.
