Letter: Cub Scout pack denounces discrimination

In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling that allows the Boy Scouts of America to discriminate against gays and lesbians in leadership positions, the parents of Madison's Cub Scout Pack 302, chartered by the Franklin/Randall PTO, thought it was important to take a public stand regarding the policy of the national organization. We therefore asked the board of the PTO to formally adopt the following statement, which it did unanimously:

``We, Pack 302 of the Four Lakes Council of Wisconsin, do not believe that the Scout oath and the Scout law can be interpreted to mean that Scouting should discriminate against anyone on the basis of sexual orientation. We believe that sexual orientation is irrelevant to a person's ability and fitness to be a moral and ethical role model as set forth in the
Scout oath and the Scout law. We accept and follow the Scout oath and the Scout law, and therefore do not discriminate on any basis whatsoever.''
