I hate to be controversial …BUT….

You know I never thought putting an opinion would ruffle so many feathers. But I suppose that’s what you do when you feel that you have rights that don’t and that you can bully to get your way.
I posted a new link today on the blog it is the BSA Legal site.

As I looked around the site I was comforted by this statement on the homepage.

“Scouting has been under relentless legal assault and publicity barrage since the Supreme Court of the United States affirmed the Scouts’ First Amendment right to freedom of association in 2000. Scouting will defend itself and the constitutional rights we all share as Americans.
Most importantly, Boy Scouts of America will not allow the attacks to sway it from its mission: to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.” BSA Legal.org

I highlighted the areas that made me smile.

I guess I just do not understand how people think. Why must they attack something that has done so much good for our Country and the World? We see it every day in America, too many people are quick to sue and knock someone else down. For what? Money? Fame? or is it just that they are so unhappy with their lives that they need to make it miserable for the rest of us?
My gut tells me it’s the latter.

I am glad we have BSA Legal and those that fight for us. A question I had to answer over and over during my 21 years in the Army was why do you serve? The answer is simple. Someone has to do it. There are those out there with nothing but hate and discontent in their hearts and those folks need to be dealt with. Weather it is Osama or the ACLU someone needs to stand up for what is good and right.

About a 100 years ago someone by the name of William Boyce saw value in the Scouting. And throughout that 100 years, people all over America have continued to see the value of Scouting. It is right that Scouting is defended.

Happy Scouting!

  1. Sometimes it’s good to ruffle feathers from time to time. Otherwise we would be a society of a bunch of sheep. Keep ruffling.YISLone Star Scouter
