If You’re Looking for a Holiday Tree This Winter, Don’t Get It From the Boy Scouts

It’s the time of year when a lot of people are buying holiday trees — including atheists — and the Boy Scouts are setting up shop to sell them.

Along with several other bloggers today, I’m asking that you not give them your money.

Get a tree. Decorate it. Have a blast. But please don’t support the Boy Scouts of America. It’s an organization that kicks out scouts and adults leaders if they’re gay or atheist. It’s an organization that cares more about what invisible being everyone believes in than the characters of the boys who want to become scouts. It’s an organization that ought to know better but chooses to remain steeped in bigotry.
