What do you think about the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA and the Boy Scouts?

Bookmark and Share

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA has sent the local Boy Scouts packing over the Scouts' prohibiting gay members from serving in leadership posts. The action, which will require the Scouts to leave the YMCA in a year, comes amid concern from local elected officials and others about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members and employees in a possible future merger with the Triangle Y.

Read staff writer Lana Douglas' story here, and tell us what you think. Did the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA do the right thing?  Or do you disagree with the local YMCA's decision.

The Y Made the Right Call

The Y made the right call. I was a Scout and we wanted our son to stay in the Scouts but we took him out over the same BSA policies. Those policies do not mesh with "Scout Law."

Not a big fan of the paramilitary nature of the organization either. 

Scout Law:

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, 
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent.
