Boy Scout Eviction “Horrific”

World Net Daily blasts Boy Scout eviction.

It is a violent summer in Philadelphia. Drug-related gang violence plagues the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. But one of the most outrageous attacks comes from the office of Philadelphia Mayor John Street. It is aimed at the Boy Scouts.

That's not just bad policy. It is horrific.

Just what have the Boy Scouts done in Philadelphia that would justify eviction from their headquarters building? Well, they serve 40,000 youth in the city, many of whom would be left to gang violence and drugs without Scouting. They contribute hundreds of thousands of volunteer project hours to the city each year. They teach boys to become responsible citizens in the community.

As an Eagle scout, I think this is absolutely ridiculous. The Boy Scouts are a private organization that does worlds of good for young boys and their surrounding community. They turned me into the leader I am today. Supreme absurdity.
