Quote:The organization itself admits that the move to allow girls isn’t because of some progressive awakening; it’s due to the fact that it’s easier for busy parents to have all their kids in one group rather than dividing them (and their time) along gender lines. It’s no secret the Boy Scouts have seen membership numbers decline as society changed around them, so allowing girls in is a transparent attempt to bolster their sagging numbers.

But if the Boy Scouts want to increase membership and/or be truly inclusive, there is another change to be made. One group still remains ostracized from benefiting from all the leadership skills the Boy Scouts have to offer: atheists and agnostics.

Fuck the Boy Scouts.
The boy scout memorial?
A naked man holding a corn cob leading a boy?
WTF?
No bullshit. It is really the boy scout memorial statue.
I'm sorry that just defies explanation.

While that does seem to be a bizarre statue, I see no signs of a corn cob.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: Boy(???) Scouts
I had some good times in the Boy Scouts growing up. I remember camping out while on Guam. I remember doing long hikes. I remember my brother and I finding an old rusty K-Bar knife on the beach there. I remember going to a jamboree and playing war games in the boonies. I remember a group of kids found un-exploded ordinance there, and we all had to evacuate so they could destroy it all.

Good times. I think there ought to be no reason that the BSA is open to both girls and boys. I'd also like to see the organizations merge, but I doubt that will happen.

According to the National Park Service, it's a live oak branch.

But yeah, it does resemble a corn cob.

Oh ok.
Now I see it.
A naked redneck with an oak branch is still a nightmare.

I'm all for girls having knot tieing skills. It's those camp peeing episodes that may cause some distractions.

You have to be odd to be #1.
