Kathie -- I've been receiving the Scout-L messages through an indirect
process the past couple of days and have been following this thread very
closely. I've controlled my urge to voice my opinion as this topic has been
discussed over and over, and continues to be a no-win situation. I also
feel that the personal flame to you was inappropriate and mis-directed. Of
the messages I've seen you've done an exceptional job of presenting the
facts as directed by the National office, without intercession of personal
opinion. However, I do take issue to your last statment where you said:
"1. I never said I was anti- anything -- you men have all assumed such,
since I give you the correct policiy and procedural process from OUR
Please be careful when you collectively place all of us into 'One position'.
This is one man who did not make any such assumption, and the fact that I
am a man has absolutely no relevance to the issue.
"3. I care not for those (human beings) who cut and slash at people,
without any knowlege of that person."
I concure 100% with your statement above, finding that once a person resorts
to flaming has lost any foundation or respect from others in their principle
argument. I'm also very disappointed that a person who making claims to be
a 'Forgotten Eagle' can so easily forget that which they learned while
earning their Eagle award.
In Scouting. . .
