The Boy Scouts of America Refused to Charter a Scout Pack with a United Methodist Congregation

Summarized Article

Accordng to the National Weekly Newsletter for United Methodist Leaders "Newscope," Volume 29, Number 16/April 20, 2001, the Boy Scouts have refused to charter a Scout Pack with a UM Congregation. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has denied a UM congregation's "open and affirming" policy toward gay boys and men, a BSA official confirmed to Newscope.

The application of Cornerstone UMC in Oak Park, Ill., was refused because of village and school-district policies that prohibit discrimination against gays. The Boy Scouts of America spokesperson stated that the BSA is a private organization and has a right to set its own standards. Bishop Joseph Sprague said that the UMC clearly supports the sacred worth and civil rights of all
persons, including homosexuals.




Scouting For All is not an alternative scouting program.
We are an education and advocacy organization reaching out to gay and nontheist youth and adults in our effort to get the Boy Scouts of America to rescind its exlusionary policy.
