WHEREAS, moral values are of infinitely greater value than money, and the Boy Scouts of America’s 2013 Membership Standards Resolution sacrificed a self-identified core value under threat of financial consequences; and
WHEREAS, young people in our highly sexualized society need a place of respite, and have been deprived of the same; and
WHEREAS, voluntary association with an organization should be made whole-heartedly, and our family has deep reservations about the motivations for the recent change;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
After due consideration and thoughtful discussion, we hereby, with great sorrow, resign our membership in the Boy Scouts of America.
