A series of articles in the Seattle Post highlight the loss of integrity on the part of the Boy Scouts organization (yes, I'm sure that there are Boy Scouts who have integrity - maybe a lot more than the organization's leaders).
It appears that the noble Scouts "have clearcut or otherwise conducted high-impact logging on tens of thousands of acres of forestland". As the article further notes: "Dozens of councils have implemented long-range management plans with assistance from professional foresters to help better manage woodlands, records also show. But the investigation also revealed stewardship plans that often went ignored, and several plans identified past poor management and a heavy-handed logging tradition on Scout lands. Money also often outweighed stewardship as the main goal -- or was cited among several objectives -- for conducting logging, records show."
When is America going to give up the idea that the Scouts are purists and an institution that America needs to preserve? First they clearly are identified as hating gays; now, it's not so clear they don't hate forests too. In my opinion, this is not an institution that deserves to keep its Federal Charter. We can do better with values and training and it's time to move on.
