Eagle Scout: "I No Longer Support The Boy Scouts Of America"

October 23, 2007

I learned of Scouting For All after watching Penn and Teller's "BS" episode. I had distanced myself from the BSA after they added/enforced their "no gays allowed" policy. I'm glad there is an organization that will allow me to try to help change the Scouts back to the organization I knew when I was younger.

I am a gay Eagle Scout. I joined Scouts as soon as I was old enough and actively participated most of my pre-adult life. I was presented my Eagle by astronaut Gen. Thomas Stafford. I was Junior Assistant Scoutmaster for my troop in Weatherford, Oklahoma. I helped start a joint Aviation Explorer post / Civil Air Patrol unit for southwestern Oklahoma.

Once I learned of the BSA's discriminatory policies I ended my support for the organization. I think these policies are unfortunate and should be changed. I would be interested in learning how I can help save Scouting and return it to what it once was.

Thank you, Mark M
