Scouting for all

I applaud BSA for this change. Scouting is an excellent program that I believe in and that I spent years supporting as a den leader and Cubmaster. My boys chose not to continue into Boy Scouts, but I had hoped they would. And now I think it’s great that girls will get the same opportunity.

Our country would be better off if more of our citizens – and especially our leaders, both in and out government – lived according to the Scout Oath and Law. And I say this as a secular humanist and a liberal who doesn’t have much use for the more religious and nationalistic elements of Scouting. Broadly, Scouting is about building character and resilience. Those human qualities shouldn’t know any boundaries.
