    They should not have to pay rent since they did pay for the building, but the lesson the boy scouts are teaching the children is wrong. My son will never be in the Boy Scouts.

    What...Not letting yourself get pushed around by a big bully is teaching the scouts a "wrong lesson"?

    Horrible lesson. :eusa_whistle:

    Scout Oath (or Promise)

    On my honor I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country
    and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong,
    mentally awake, and morally straight.

    Scout Law

    A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
    courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
    brave, clean, and reverent.



    Awful. Just awful stuff. :cuckoo:

    I was a Boy Scout but I had to bow out because I had problems with that "mentally awake and morally straight" portion of the oath... Also when I found out about girls and what fun they could be I couldn't ever remember how to tie a square knot.

    Ha ha. But you got the foundation.

    That's happening to my 17 year old. He's got Eagle now, and girls are cars are a bit more attractive than building fires with sticks. But he's learned so much and it will look great on college apps. Last night about 20 boys gave up their Friday night to do honor guard for a younger scout who lost his mom to cancer. Don't know too many kids that would do that.

    My husband is an Eagle Scout and a troop leader. He is a good man.

    We did the Boy Scout thing when my son was younger, but karate crowded his schedule before Eagle Scouts started , but you're right, he learned so much there, well we both did really.

    They do not own the property the building sits on and that is the problem. If an organization wants the right to discriminate it should be prepared to pay for the rights they demand instead of asking all taxpayers to subsidize their bigotry. Fucking hypocrites.

    I think they shyould have been tossed, personally.

    But the courts decided otherwise and I can live with that, too.
