  1. Great article. I shared it on Facebook with a note that it is “worth reading.” I am constantly amazed when people think that because I can use the word “God” in a sentence without being embarrassed or self-conscious, then they assume that I totally agree with them not only theologically, but also politically!

I congratulate the Boy Scouts on taking a step forward and encourage them to continue taking steps toward inclusion and justice.
