Activist Groups Urge Obama to Reject Boy Scout Honor
From Fox News:
Activist groups, including Scouting for All, urge President Obama not to accept the honorary Presidency of the Boy Scouts of America until they stop discriminating.

Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, 6th District, California
Scouting for All has the honor of giving Lynn Woolsey our 2003 Fran Crawford Volunteer of The Year Rainbow Award.
Lynn has been a supporter of Scouting for All and Steven Cozza and his efforts to end discrimination
within the Boy Scouts of America from the first day in January 1998 when Steven called a press conference to rally
support for his grassroots petition drive, the beginning of Scouting for All. Lynn has also presented the Scouting
for All Bill to Congress to de-charter the Boy Scouts of America. Our federal government continues to charter the
Boy Scouts of America, which is currently a bigoted organization, discriminating against gay and atheist youth
and adults. Lynn also kicked off Scouting for All's "No Child Left Behind" campaign with Steven, asking
President Bush to step down as the honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America. Lynn has continued to be an
advocate for youth and human rights.
