Petitions are such feel good things.

A better use of time would be an organized campaign to get constituents to demand of their legislators that the bigot Boy Scouts get no taxpayer support whatsoever, which following the Dale decision they are not entitled to. No police athletic leagues, no preferential rents on government property, no special accommodations on federal park land, etc.

The bigot Boy Scouts are a private group (supposedly) and are allowed to discriminate against glbt people and atheists and agnostics. They show no intention to change at this time.

Cut off their government support.

BSA lost my support long ago due to their homophobic bigotry. I won't so much as buy a tin of popcorn from them until they stop discriminating.

It's been proven bisexual men have unsafe indiscriminate anonymous sex in bathrooms and other public places and then go home to their wives. Tap 3 times on the brakes if you want some action. Despicable.
