As an Eagle Scout myself, I only later became aware that the Boy Scouts of America openly discriminate against atheists and homosexuals, and both boys and leaders - those are their "values". If those values seem appropriate to you, then by all means press on. Those were not the values I remember being taught, however. These days, there are alternatives for boys, and I recommend those alternatives unequivocally. Though I checked the box below that says "I agree to the Terms and Conditions" of this site, I find it ironic that one of those Terms/Conditions is that I may not: "use the Site to promote bigotry or discrimination against protected classes", yet this site promotes this organization which DOES do that.
