Would you let your son join Cub Scouts if you don't agree with their position on homosexuality?
My seven year old wants to join Cub Scouts this year, but I’m not a big fan of the organization. I know the kids learn a lot and do some great things for their community, but at the same time, I don’t particularly want to support a homophobic group. Part of me thinks it’s not a big deal, that I should just let the kid have fun. A lot of his friends are in Cub Scouts, and I’m sure the experience depends more on the local leaders than the policies of the group at a national level. But still, I feel a bit disgusted when I think of giving money and time to Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts. Unless it’s in the form of chocolate covered caramel corn, which unfortunately I was unable to resist when a group of little Scouts accosted me the other day.
Mountain out of a molehill here, or justified concern?
