Want an American flag delivered to your door?

Boy Scouts set up and take down flags in northwest Boise and Eagle for a troop fundraiser.

In the realm of delivering holiday cheer before dawn, there's Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and a group of local Boy Scouts.

Instead of presents or Easter eggs, the 16 Boy Scouts set up American flags for patriotic holidays, including Independence Day.

Early Wednesday morning the crew planted the stars and stripes in 136 lawns scattered throughout northwest Boise and Eagle.

The Scouts charge $30 for the service, which guarantees an American flag on President's Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, the Fourth of July, Patriot Day and Veterans Day. Flags are delivered before 8 a.m. and typically taken down around dusk that evening. The money earned from the fundraiser pays for Scouts' outings, camps and supplies.

What do the gay activists and the ACLU think of this? The scouts do some fine activities such as this. But to the one-track minds of Lambda Legal and the ACLU, the scouts are worthless because of their “discrimination” against homosexual scout leaders.
