Back in July 2012, I wrote a post about what I thought on the BSA National re-affirmation of its policy on Gays. I still believe in what I wrote then as I do now. Today, the BSA put out a statement on how it’s going to decide on the matter in the coming days.
My friend Arlen summed up his thoughts on his blog. I cannot add any better thoughts outside of what he wrote and what I said earlier. Please read Arlen’s post.
I will close with what I posted on my earlier post on what Lord Baden-Powell’s vision of Scouting (world-wide) should be.
Besides, it was the goal of Sir Robert Baden-Powell the founder of Scouting as he wrote in 1917: “The roots of Scouting have grown among young people of all civilised countries and are developing more each day. It might be thought that if in years to come, a considerable proportion of the future citizens of each nation forms part of this brotherhood, they will be joined by a bond of personal friendship and mutual understanding such as has never existed before, which will help to find a solution to terrible international conflicts.” Thus, Messenger’s of Peace.
