The Mid-Iowa Council of the Boy Scouts of America seems to have Mislead the United Way of Central Iowa to Secure Funding


gays could be denied Scout membership (June 7, 2001 - Des Moines Register)

Boys in the Des Moines area who say they are gay can be excluded from Boy Scout troops, even though Scout officials have agreed to a policy prohibiting discriminating based on sexual orientation. The policy was required recently by the United Way of Central Iowa in exchange for the charity's agreeing to provide the Scouts with about $124,000 a year. Similar nondiscrimination
agreements have been reached between United Way and other nonprofit organizations that the charity supports financially. Ely Brewer, the top executive in the Boy Scouts' Mid-Iowa Council, which covers 27 counties, said of the agreement with United Way, "If we would so choose, we would have the right to refuse their membership."

 

 

 

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.
