    that they stopped contacting you. Not.

    You know what I would like to see. I would like to see this corporations and other entities that have stopped giving to Boy Scouts band together and create a national alternative to Boy Scouts. Based on the same idea and model, just more inclusive. If successful, the Boy Scouts would become a bible camp pretty damned quickly.

      alternative to Boy Scouts. There are alternatives, but they're scattered here and there, and they have no name recognition. Scouting is an incredible experience. Even though I had to leave the organization and it makes me angry, to this day some (heck, most) of my best memories are from summer camp and the National Scout Jamboree and other Scouting events. I'd love for my boys, if I ever have any, to have that kind of an experience (if the outdoors is their thing). A national alternative would be great. Because, having met the Chief Scout Executive himself and seen how invested he and other national leaders are in keeping the policy (he brought it up in a speech delivered in my council), I'm convinced they're not changing anytime soon.
