Understand that the BSA reflects American Society; and one needs to recognize that time will gradually change the BSA. I have been a member for over 47 years; and while it;s not perfect, what organization is?BSA donated millions of dollars in service work to your community;in spite of the criticism of a few. The raised over a $1 Billion dollars in WW Bonds, taught "environmentalism" way back in the 1930's & 40's with recycling, and gave over 50 million boys outdoor opportunities to become successful men. Today they do the same. The program and values are delivered by your troop or cub pack level. Believe me, the local professional staff is NOT over paid, by any stretch. They put in 60-80 hour weeks,and are supportive. The BSA does not discriminate against sexual identity in its youth members; their standards are set about avowed public proclamation of ADULTS WHO are set on telling the world their sexual preference. Sexual preference is simply not a part of Scouting; and has been all along.
