Grassfire.org sent this one along. Normally this isn’t the place for politics (see Whispers for that) but this one is an exception. If we don’t stand with the BSA it might well be us next.
The ACLU is out to destroy the Boy Scouts of America with wave after wave of lawsuits designed to bankrupt the organization.
Given the state of today’s culture with the lack of father’s in many homes, growing drug use and violence among our teenage boys, and numerous other pitfalls, the Boy Scouts may be more important than ever to the health of our society.
But unless grassroots America stands up on behalf of this proud organization that has instilled honesty, integrity and character in more than 110 million boys over the years, we may soon lose their outstanding influence.
That is why Grassfire is calling on our lawmakers to draft and pass legislation that protects and preserves the mission of the Scouts from outside attack.
However, to motivate our leaders to take action, we need to mobilize hundreds of thousands of citizens who stand in support of the Scouts.

The “Support Our Scouts Act of 2005” is due to be announced any day, and would ensure that the Boy Scouts are treated fairly by guaranteeing their right to equal access to public facilities, forums and programs. It would also protect them from senseless attacks by groups like the ACLU.
