Re: [FSGP] New Meetup: BSA Protest Action

Hello Janice,

Ok, thanks.? That helps me, but how is anyone else supposed to figure it all out?? There must be an FSGP article about it somewhere.

I was perhaps ten when I read, in the handbook, "A Boy Scout is reverent", accompanied by some illustration of clasping hands in prayer.? They were already on thin ice with me, having prescribed a whole set of achievements required to be allowed to carry a pocket knife, which I had already been carrying for two years.? I quit soon after.

Hello!

No link associated anywhere? with this email contains any information about why there's a protest against the Boy Scouts!? Not this email, not the fsgp site, and not on Meetup.com, just links that say "go here for more information".? The Facebook link may hold an explanation, but not everyone is registered or is willing to register on Facebook just to find out (Facebook pirates your member list and sends unsolicited "join Facebook" emails as if they were written by the member)

I was in the Boy Scouts for several years and I know why I always thought it was a total crock, but why exactly do the imperial you think so?? Someone explain!
