      Also -- to be 100% frank and serious -- we're glad to give scouts museum
      tours and such, but MARCH under my leadership will not work with groups
      that discriminate.

      I have children in Scouts. No one is 100% happy ever with any group but to
      say discriminate because they have religious principles IS a form of
      discrimination and I will not back down from that view. Don't bring your
      politics on this board and you don't speak for this board member. I want to

      cannot make blanket statements on behalf of anyone but himself. I regret
      this unsanctioned comment.

      If this is "MARCH's view" then I will resign right here.
