If a man kicks a dog and it bites him, then who should you blame; the dog
or the man? The situation is somewhat similar to the BSA excluding
atheists and them suing the BSA.
Some dogs bite without being kicked, and some people sue or holler
completely without reason. When kicking, you will however be bit by
dogs that would otherwise have been nice to you. After a while, you
may end up believing that all dogs bite.
For me, as an outside observer, there seems to be too much kicking and
biting here. It also looks like some people have reached the state
where they believe all dogs bite. My advice is to ease off a bit.
FYI: I do not have a problem with the BSA, the BSA Scout Oath, or the
BSA Scout Law, and I hope they do not have a problem with me. I do in
fact hope to find a unit in the Redmond, WA, area that is as great as
the group I am leaving behind in Denmark.
Yours in Scouting.
