The BSA is not the KKK - we don't preach discrimination and it's never even come up in our troop. We teach nothing but the positive to our boys - core values of trustworthiness, bravery, kindness, loyalty, etc. are what we're there for. It's not a hate group.I guess Catholics are also not welcome at MARCH? They openly discriminate aginst Gays and Athiests also.Regardless, I'll take your response as a polite "no, thanks".VinceSent from my iPad - please excuse spelling errors

BSA is legally allowed to have their "principles" according to SCOTUS. I agree with that. It's their first amendment right.
But if a group's principles overtly * exclude * people who are welcomed by MARCH, then the groups should not partner. That alone is the basis for my response -- not my personal politics.
I know of several well-respected MARCHins who are gay, and several who are atheist. Why would we support any group that wouldn't allow our own members to join, regardless of the reason?
