Suspend the relationship between Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania and the Boy Scouts sign now

Statement of Facts

In June, 2000, a divided United States Supreme Court ruled in Dale vs. Boy Scouts of America (BSA) that the BSA is a private organization and therefore entitled to establish its own exclusionary membership criteria.

The Boy Scouts of America adopted a resolution dated February 6, 2002, which declares gays and atheists unfit and unacceptable role models for scout youth.

On June 6, 2003, the Cradle of Liberty Council, the BSA chapter which includes Montgomery County, PA, ousted a gay Life Scout named Gregory Lattera.

On June 9, 2003, BSA scout executive Roy L. Williams issued a nationally circulated memo stating that the Cradle of Liberty Council was in compliance with the national exclusionary membership policy.

The United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, the PEW Charitable Trust, the William Penn Foundation and the Philadelphia Foundation have all stopped funding the Cradle of Liberty Council because of its discriminatory actions.

Petition

The undersigned residents of Cheltenham Township, PA, request that the Township honor its non-discrimination laws and suspend its relationship with the Boy Scouts of America, the Cradle of Liberty Council (the local chapter of the BSA) and all affiliated troops, and decline use of Township facilities, until such time as the BSA and Cradle of Liberty Council publicly and credibly end their policy of excluding gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and nontheistic youth and adults.
