A Young Man Hoping to Become a Professional Leader for the Boy Scouts of America
I have been active in the scouting program since I was six years old. In 19** I made my Eagle and then went on
to receive an Eagle Palm. Currently I am attending college working on a degree in recreation, I hope someday to
become a scouting professional. It is because of this I wish not to disclose my name because I feel as a professional
I will be able to make a more significant change in policy. I am personally not homosexual, however I see no reason
to discriminate against homosexuals, atheists, etc. Boy Scouts as a program is a wonderful program, it has taught
me more valuable life skills than I feel I could have picked up almost anywhere else, just a month ago I had the
privilege of saving a mans life with the skills that I learned in the program. The program is not a bad program,
it is the organization and it's policies that are bad. One of the points of the Scout Law is respect, the scouting
program is violating it's own Law in banning people from the program for their sexual orientation and religion.
There are other points of the Scout Law that we could also say National is violating such as: Courteous, Kind,
Friendly. The military changed their ways, when are we?
