change their policy


It is time for the Boy Scouts of America to reconsider its policy of exclusivity against gay youth and leaders and to end the discrimination in its organization -- an organization that is responsible for shaping the future of young men across the country.

I urge our Council of Boy Scouts of America

• to not simply tout the values of compassion, honesty, and respect -- but act upon them.

• to please make it clear to the National BSA that our Council is in favor of lifting the ban on gay scouts and leaders.

• to adopt wording in our scout materials that make it clear that we are a Council dedicated to the 12 Core Values of Scouting: citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health & fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect, and responsibility. That means we are a Council that does not practice discrimination against any group.

Thank you.
