Why we should be interested in the case involving the Scouter whose membership
was canceled for criticizing or requesting information that the law requires
is that this is a way to stifle discussion. What if someone on the list
membership was revoked because of what he or she said here? It seems to be a
strategy of the "professionals" to wear down those who have a different point
of view or finally c revoke their membership.
The other part was the failure of the Regional committee to even respond to
the Scouter's appeal of the revocation of his membership. This is America and
we spout off the Scout Oath all the time. "...Duty to Country..." means not
only defending the country as in the military, but paying our taxes, and
following the procedures of due process of law.
