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.

Send Your Eagle Badge and other Scouting Awards to Scouting For All not to The BSA
Scouting For All will support those who want to protest the Boy Scouts of America's bigoted position against gay
youth and adults and atheists by accepting all scouting awards that you may want to send to the Boy Scouts of America.
We will keep your Eagle Award or other scouting award in trust for you, pending the day when you can retrieve it
from us because Scouting has ceased to discriminate. We do not believe sending your Scout Award back to the BSA
would even phase national officials. They don't seem to care about the fact that their policy is hurting so many
of our youth. In fact they don't even deserve the Eagle or any other scouting award because of their bigoted practice.
So send the scouting awards to us. We will keep them safe for you.
Please provide us with return address information so we may return them to you. Also let us know if you would like
us to post your name on this page as a scout who turned in their scout award as a form of protest. We will not
post names unless you grant us permission in writing. Also let us know if you would like to be contacted by the
media. They have been asking for names and we haven't given any out because we haven't received permission.
If you have already sent in your Eagle Badge or other scout honor to your local scout council or to the BSA
National headquarters in Irving Texas let Scouting For All know at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you grant us permission
we will also include your name, troop, rank and scout council along with others who have turned in their Eagle
Awards and other scout honors to us.
Please send your Eagle badge or other scouting awards as your protest against the Boy Scouts of America's practice
of discrimination to:
