Dear Editor this in regard to the "End the Boy Scout bullying" article you posted in the Tuesday, Oct. 2, edition of the Marietta Times. There are a lot of people out there that are talking about bullying and how this is bullying awareness month and I feel that this viewpoint by (Connie) Schultz is just that - bullying. She not only is bullying the Boy Scouts of America, but so are the United Way of Cleveland and Intel. Just because the Boy Scouts of America don't think the way they do they are bullying them to either change their policy or no funding.
The Boy Scouts of America has been around since 1911 and has had the same scout law. It has not changed. One law 12 points the very last of which is morally straight. Just because some Americans now feel that the homosexual lifestyle is OK, not all of us do. And anyone who does not is considered racist. If that is not bullying I don't know what is. I am a mother of two Eagle Scouts and was a leader in the Scouting program for almost 20 years. Any boy can join the Scouts, there is no discrimination. Only after a scout or scouter an (adult in the Scouting program) has chosen a lifestyle that is not in accordance with the Boy Scout Law are they no longer permitted in The Boy Scouts of America. No matter what organization we choose to join it is still our choice we do not have to be in it. If you don't like the rules join one that you do. Again I stress no boy is discriminated against in The Boy Scouts of America.
