Straight Eagle Scout Returns Badges In Protest of Boy Scouts’ Anti-Gay Policies – SEND THEM BACK!

Martin Cizmar a former Eagle Scout who’ currently the arts and culture editor of Portland Oregon’s weekly Williamette Week, returned his Eagle Scout badge and medals to  the Boy Scouts of America yesterday in protest of the group’s anti-gay policies.

Writes  Cizmar:

“I am not gay. However, I cannot in good conscience hold this badge as  long as the BSA continues a policy of bigotry. Though I didn’t know at the time,  I was acquainted with a number fo gay scouts and scouters. They were all great  men, loyal to the scout oath and motto and helpful to the movement. There is no  fair reason they should not be allowed to participate in scouting.”

Thank you Martin!

Obviously the teachings of being an Eagle Scout prevailed in your life and made an impact in spite of the bigotry that is held by those who have the  powers that be in the BSA.

If you were a Cub Scout, Webloe or Boy Scout send back to the Boy Scouts of America and and all of your old badges, equipment, uniforms,  handbooks, what ever you have in protest.
