The Boy Scouts

by Squiddhartha

Look, I’m genuinely thrilled that the Boy Scouts of America are now considering ending their “no gays” policy.  It’s long overdue, but it’s a step in the right direction, taking them closer to the Girl Scouts’ policy of equality.  But they’re hanging on to their ban on atheists, so I’m still out.

As an Eagle Scout myself, it’s been very painful to me to watch the organization solidify its discriminatory stances over the years.  Maybe they’ll eventually wise up on religion as well, but I’m not holding my breath.
