Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Persecuted

x-posted to a couple scouting communities..

Unfortunately this is currently only available to National Review subscribers. Hopefully it'll be open to the public soon and available elsewhere. Major thanks to garylee8604 for sharing the article with me! And note below the OA cited in the article is the National Honor Society I was just inducted into.. and yet this is the organization that the ACLU and their ilk have in their cross hairs.. and won't rest until they destroy. Also see here for a post about a great book chronicling this battle.. and don't be mistaken - it is a battle of epic proportion..

Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Persecuted

Across the country, the Boy Scouts are under attack

The Boy Scouts of America have been dragged onto the front lines of the culture wars. “It started 20 years ago with lawsuits complaining girls and atheists were being excluded,” says Robert Bork Jr., spokesman for the BSA in Washington and son of the former Supreme Court nominee. “Then there were the homosexual cases, culminating in the Supreme Court’s Dale decision in 2000, which ruled that as a private organization, the Scouts were entitled to choose their own members. The American Civil Liberties Union lost, but has been trying ever since to have the Scouts expelled from the public square.”
