A Touching Letter to the Boy Scouts of America

Former Eagle Scout Douglas Woodhouse posted this picture on his Facebook page.  He sent this letter and his Eagle Scout medal back to the Boy Scouts of America in protest of their discriminatory policies.  It is really very lovely and well worth a read:

I, personally, loved this part: “No one remembers how efficient the Montgomery public transit system was in 1955.  All we remember about them now is their seating policy.”

Maggie Koerth-Baker has a compilation of even more of these letters at Boing Boing.

Has anyone else done something similar with their own club, group, or church?
