Gay rights ARE human rights. The BSA should be setting an example of non discrimination and inclusivity. I am sure that this is not what Baden Powell had in mind. Please sign to show support for this troop and it's leader.

Look Boy Scout LEADERS (because I firmly believe this has far more to do with the people in charge of the organization than actual scouts), please consider the following.

1) The Girl Scouts currently are superior to you in every way. Somehow, they aren't obsessed with the sexuality of the scouts and scout leaders. You come across as creepy, perverted, and bigoted with these policies. Oh and they sell cookies.

2) You have recently changed your policy to allow scouts under a certain age to join if they are gay. But not leaders. What kind of logic is that? So a kid can spend YEARS in the scouts and be the PERFECT scout, but when they hit a certain age, you discard them? And, we are supposed to take you seriously?

3) I can't imagine that you are experiencing a surge in membership with these Bronze Age policies.

4)... and finally....

THIS IS 2014. Do you understand that? 2014, not 1814.

Your signature has been recorded. We need many adults that will take the time with our children to help parents raise them. Many can not volunteer today having to work long hours or extra hours to keep things going so when we find someone that is willing and able to do something as wonderful of lead a troop their character not sexual orientation should be what matters.

Noted, signed and shared. Absolutely disgusting and so wrong for the boys who have worked so hard in the organization, not to mention the poor scout leader in this instance. It's too bad that we all just can't get along.

Common sense would tell even the average thinking period, that it would be wise to be on the side of the future.
