Letter: Local groups say Boy Scouts should change anti-gay policy

The Boy Scouts have long provided a safe, supportive environment for boys to develop both their self-esteem and leadership skills. An important element of that environment is the acceptance of and respect for the diversity of people in our communities. We celebrate the fact that our troop and the Minuteman Council continue this tradition and are in the vanguard of change for the Boy Scouts of America.

Scouts poised to make important change

Civil rights are not won by all-or-nothing propositions. Just as the fight for marriage equality progressed slowly, one state at a time, we feel certain that once local Scout troops begin admitting gay and lesbian Scouts and leaders in progressive regions like New Hampshire's Seacoast and southern York County, the rest of the nation will surely follow because it is the just and right thing to do.
