Blue Ridge Council, BSA and Palmetto Council, BSA: Reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy

This petition had 1,194 supporters


We, the community of Upstate, South Carolina urge the Blue Ridge Council, BSA and Palmetto Council, BSA to reject the Boy Scouts of America's anti-gay policy.

Service organizations including the Girl Scouts, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and the 4H Club all welcome gay kids and adult leaders. Also, the American Medical Association has opposed the Boy Scouts' anti-gay policy, saying it could cause psychological trauma in youth.

We love the Boy Scouts, but we can’t support this policy. That's why we urge you to speak out 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.
