Reject the BSA's Anti-Gay Policy


We, the scouts and community members of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Howard, Harford Counties and Baltimore City urge the Baltimore Area Council to reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy.

Among service organizations, the Boy Scouts are increasingly isolating themselves with their prohibition on gay youth and leaders. Organizations including the Girl Scouts of America, 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 and everything the organization has done for the young men in our community. That's why we urge you to speak out against this ban 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.

Please end the ban on gay scouts and leaders immediately.
