Did the Boy Scouts behave badly toward him or something? What is this--he was just offended that they were using oxygen in his vicinity?
I'd be the first to say that the Boy Scouts should be capable of being polite no matter what. (One might sympathize with them if they weren't capable of it, under some circumstances.)
But this doesn't say that they did ANYTHING to him! He's just offended that a group that would exclude him was physically present in the same room??? Good GRIEF. Please name one human being on this earth who has not had that experience a zillion times in elementary school! And a quadzillion times more in junior high and high school!
Being excluded from some groups, formally or informally, is NORMAL! Why, Congress hasn't let me in to vote with them ONCE! The US Navy said my nearsightedness was too severe, and THEY excluded me (but I'm still warmly polite toward Navy personnel!) I'm a member of one church and don't you know, other churches don't consider me a member of theirs! I attend one university, but other universities haven't sent me welcome letters. And socially, wow! Half the human race considers me OUTSIDE their gender! Most of the human race sees me as an outsider one way or another.
Boy this just stinks doesn't it?

(Focused, Relentless Charity Beats Random Acts of Kindness.)
"This is why God delivered them over to degrading passions. For even their females exchanged natural sexual intercourse for what is unnatural. The males in the same way also left natural sexual intercourse with females and were inflamed in their lust for one another. Males committed shameless acts with males and received in their own persons the appropriate penalty for their perversions.
And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. They are filled with all unrighteousness, evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, disputes, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, arrogant proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, and unmerciful. Although they know full well God's just sentence - that those who practice such things deserve to die - they do not only do them, but even applaud others who practice them."
