So, talking to my girlfriend today, turns out her son want sto be in Boy Scouts. Awesome! But, they won't let him join because he's agnostic. Come to find out, you cannot be atheist or agnostic in that organization. And everyone knows the controversy on their policy against homsexuals. This REALLY burns me. When I was in Scouts (Tiger Cub to Eagle) I don't ever recall a huge focus on religion. Yes, one of the Scout Laws is to be Reverant. But I always took that in a more broad view. Maybe it's more of a focus in the Bible belt (where she lives) than it is back home in New England. Still kind of burns me, because I was once proud to be associated with that organization. Now...well, I'll hang on to MY memories and views of Scouting from back home. And maybe, someday, those crusty old bastards will lighten up. Or keel over and make way for more enlightened and broad-minded individuals. /endrant´╗┐
