When Robert Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts of America in 1920, it was actually in response to an existing group, the Christians-only “Boys Brigade.” So there is more than a little irony in some on the right opposing inclusivity initiatives in the BSA because some troops are sponsored by churches. They talk values – but what about the real, valid, sincere values of non-discrimination and inclusivity that many progressives subscribe to? This week, Welton welcomes Interfaith Alliance’s own Jay Keller, the dad of a former Boy Scout whose troop was one of those sponsored by a church – but a church which over 10 years ago first challenged – in writing – BSA’s exclusionary policies.
