Longs Peak Council: Support reversal of the BSA's policy prohibiting membership by homosexuals.

We, the Scouts and community members of NE Colorado, SE Wyoming & SW Nebraska urge the Longs Peak Council to support the repeal of the Boy Scouts of America's policy prohibiting membership by homosexuals.

The Boy Scouts are becoming more isolated when compared with other service organizations. 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!
