50-Year Scouting Veteran Resigns Over Gay Ban: VIDEO
The Boy Scouts of America is losing some of its most loyal members over its policies against gay scouts and leaders. Members like Bill Moser, a Clarksville Boy Scout leader who has been involved in scouting for more than 50 years.
Said Moser in a letter of resignation:
“I have been actively involved with Scouting for over 50 years, and my personal experience with Scouting has reinforced my belief that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible and productive society. Teaching or practicing intolerance IS NOT in the Scout Oath or Law. The Scouting Trail begins in the 1st Grade with the Tiger Cub program and ends at age 18 for youth participation.
I personally do not believe a 6-year-old boy has a clue about sexuality. I also believe the policy advocated by the Middle Tennessee Council which would require Scouts who discover they are gay to either resign or violate the 1st Scout Law (Trustworthy) is WRONG.”
