As a Boy Scout Leader for three boys from Grade 1 to Eagle Scout, how dare you!!!!!!! When boys are in the Boy Scouts they are the leaders of their troops. You obviously have no clue how the Scouts work. The boys are patrol leaders and they make all the decisions about how to earn money, what to work on and how to go about it. Parents are there as a sounding board. Gay, Lesbian, Straight whatever has nothing to do with what the boys choose to work on. The guidelines for Eagle Scout are very clear. Earn a specific number of achievements and raise in rank. Scouts are a great way for kids to have friends and learn things that may not be in their parents wheelhouse. Our Pack and Troop have passed many boys to Eagle Scouts and I have to say I would follow them to the ends of the earth. They are truly people who care and who value education of all sorts. Bad mouthing the boys and us, their parent leaders is just wrong and I’m sad that you, fellow readers choose to use your free speech to put people down.
Oh and by the way, my oldest Eagle Scout son is not only working at Boeing but he volunteers his free time as a search and rescue lead and he is learning how to track. Saving people like you who bad mouth everything and anything from your own stupidity out in the world.
