100_Percent_Fruit saidThis does not surprise me. There is no honor in the BSA - never was, never will.
"There is no Honor in the BSA - Never was, never will"?
Wow! Were you an Eagle Scout, were you even a Boy Scout of any kind? Now, I don't believe in their policy against openly gay leaders and scouts but I do believe in their mission to help young boys. I find it very offensive for you to say that there is no honor what so ever in the BSA.
I can definitely thank my time in the BSA for growth, experience, and getting into the military and other career opportunities. How dare you say that there is NO honor in the BSA.
Yeah... all of this.
BSA has its faults, and while they may be many, it also has its virtues.
I kept my interest in guys under wraps, as was the custom for Boy Scouts like me, but I still think that most of the lessons it teaches are what's made me the man I am today.
I KNEW when they announced that they would relax their staunch anti-gay policy to ONLY include youth, it was not nearly as big of a step in the right direction as they thought it would be. The inclusion of youth but not adults was a short-sighted effort and now it's coming back to haunt them.
I have every confidence that the policy will change... in time. and I have every confidence that the BSA will only grow stronger from it.
