I find it ironic that the Boy Scouts of America and the American Civil Liberties Union are both approximately 70 years old. The Scout law has 12 points. It states that a Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
And what about the ACLU? Legalization of child pornography, legalization of drugs, legalization of prostitution, abortion on demand, mandatory sex education, busing, ideological testing for court appointees, automatic entitled probation, public demonstrations for Nazis and communists and legalization of polygamy. Much of their $14-million budget is supplied by American taxpayers through the federally mandated Civil Rights Attorneys' Fee Act of 1976.
The Boy Scouts uplift the values of America. The ACLU tears down the values of America.
