Anti-gay Boy Scouts alternative bars Jewish adults, too

by Jeremy Hooper

You probably know that the Boy Scouts of America now accepts gay youth yet still bans gay adults. That came back into light this week, with a story about the national BSA dismissing a gay scoutmaster solely because he told the truth about being gay. That is a horrible reality that lingers, and it needs to change—and pronto.

But something I find interesting is that Trail Life USA, the organization that came into existence for no other reason than to be the decidedly anti-LGBT alternative to the Boy Scouts, has virtually the same policy—on Jews. Check this out:

You'd think that an organization with such a clear and obvious root that is defined by the kinds of human beings it is against would want to paint a better impression. I mean, the burden is on them to prove that they are something greater than exclusionary. To go beyond just the gay thing and add new levels of exclusion just kind of proves what we all thought about this organization and its reason for being.
