Letter to the Boy Scouts of America

Apparently there is quite a movement going on of Eagle Scouts resigning and returning their medals to the Boy Scouts of America, in protest of the organization's policy excluding homosexuals from membership. Some of the resignations are from Eagle Scouts who are gay, but many are from straight men. I have read some of their letters, but this one blew me away. I recommend reading the letter, then re-reading it but substituting the words "church" or "denomination" (or, if you're a Quaker, "Yearly Meeting") for "Boy Scouts of America" (or BSA) and substituting the words "Christian" or "Leader" or "Pastor" for "scout".

You get the idea...
