This is my Eagle Scout card
I received it during my Eagle Scout ceremony at Fairview Baptist Church in Reidsville, North Carolina on August 16th, 1992.
It immediately went into my wallet.
I have carried my Eagle Scout card with me ever since. It has been with me through college, across the ocean, through some very dark times and into some very wonderful times.
I've never been without it. I had long planned to someday be buried with it.
Moments ago I removed my Eagle Scout card from my wallet. I do not plan to carry it with me ever again.
Within the past hour it has been announced that the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America has passed a resolution to allow openly homosexual members.
This is incompatible with the spirit and the meaning of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. The principles of Scouting are about being the best that God intends for us to be. Strength of mind, strength of body and strength of character are inherently essential toward this. And part of that means developing personal restraint. God intended for us to control our own bodies. Not for our bodies to control us.
The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America has demonstrated that it does not understand the meaning of either the Scout Oath or the Scout Law.
And so it is, with great sadness and a grieving heart, that I choose to no longer be associated or affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America.
Maybe someday I'll be able to pick up the card and carry it with me again. I pray that day does come.
