I am so proud of the Boy Scouts of America for standing up to the pressures of the gay and lesbian movement. Boy Scouts means just that. Scouting can be for everyone, but Girl Scouts are a different group, and gays need to start their own.

As for the entertainment at their Jamboree, what about working them on their skills until dinner, followed by a couple of campfire songs and then lights out.

That’s what we did when I was a scout. We did conservation work. Built rock dams, reforested bare land and even sowed wildflowers to curb erosion.

Years later I would go back and see the fruits of our labors.

Bill Hoffrage,
