The Boy Scouts- Who’da Thought?

Today, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) vote on an amended policy for member participation.  After reading their proposed resolution, I am surprised to find myself whole-heartedly supporting their position.

I saw the caption “Pentagon Taps Anti-Christian Extremist for Religious Tolerance Policy” while scanning through headlines this week.  Then I read the article.  It is an outrage.
