As an Eagle Scout, and now former as, Scoutmaster, I have left the organization. This was no small move. I loved the Scouts and my son was a Life Scout. I am done with them.
I hear you. I worked as an adult leader in Scouting for about the last 13 years. I have held positions of Cub Master and Assistant Scout Master, plus many other titles. I was active because I enjoyed it and my boys enjoyed it. Both of my boys earned their Eagle Scout rank, and last year was my last year of helping out, however I had planned on continuing with donating and such, but with this new embrace of homosexuality over “morally straight” and “reverent to God”, I will aid the Boy Scouts no longer.
This does hurt, because I know many very good adult leaders and scouts. I put a letter to the editor in stating my view on the BSA’s new position, and I got not one single call or email agreeing with me. Normally when I put a letter to the editor on things like morality, I used to get positive feed back from some of the adult Scout leaders, but not anymore, I guess. So sad that the National Council decided to ruin such a great organization with one fell swoop.
