This Just In / A Reminder
Thu, 5 Aug 1999 07:39:53 -0700
Hi Fellow Scouts-Lrs,
Just a reminder from the past when many of us older to the list
discussed the CA BSA battle with some really nice CA people out
in Orange County, CA who were really having a hard time with all
the junk that goes on with these kinds of events. OK I guess it
is called the Right of Assembly in a public place.
I still hope the sons and dad are doing OK and not too disgruntled.
YOU should know that At least one person on this list knows this
person personally and wants the best for this person. Which is not
so much different from each of us scouts-lrs. Most of us, just like
BSA, do not want, or think it wise for our children, to have this
person to be an approved model even if they have piles of great
Our Good friends the BSA in Irving will hopefully WIN this legal
battle as they have won others.
Beyond the legal concerns of Freedom of Groups, and Societies in
a Free Society and how does a Free Country manages Individual, small
group, big group, and country wide freedoms, the BSA concern IMHO is
what is a normal clean living life life style that propogates the
universe chosen by its members in a direction of growth and how do
you provide leadership to this Vision. We and BSA have a choice of
deciding Lots of stuff to be unclean including drinking brewskies
at campouts and meetings, lighting one up, telling all male jokes,
and yes that occassional fun hazing that can be damaging.
Anyway, think kind to NJ, the person in NJ, and BSA attorneys
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
