Boy Scouts of America Standard Position Statement to the News Media
We respect everyone's right to hold and express their opinion. We simply ask people who disagree with the position
of the Boy Scouts of America to respect our rights as a private, voluntary organization.
In fact, the vast majority of members of the Boy Scouts of America wholeheartedly support our position, and our
membership has grown significantly in recent years.
The B. S. A. has emphasized traditional family values since our founding. We believe avowed homosexuals do not
provide a role model for Scouts that is consistent with the Scout Oath and Law.
For more information, call B.S.A National Spokesman, Gregg Shields at (214) 443-7580.
* This position statement is from the National BSA in Irving, Texas. It represents their standard response to the
media. This one came out in response to Scouting For All's National Day of Protest held on 8/21/00.
Scott Cozza, Pres.
