Nov 3, 2012 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.nola.com

For nearly a decade, hundreds of New Orleans-area Boy Scouts have learned the virtues of the Ten Commandments on an annual Thanksgiving holiday hike to Uptown houses of worship, where Christian, Jewish and Muslim clergy and scholars explained their faiths' take on the ancient code.

Good point! I seems very odd to have the boy scouts keep this discriminatory policy in place while the girl scouts abandoned it long ago. Parents have one group o children going to one camp, while all the boys are in another... Strikes me as a bit odd

A post is response to the article was well-meaning but I thought it was hilarious:

"It is the CHRISTIAN [emphasis mine] thing to do. If you want to teach young kids to be good people you don't teach them bigotry and hatred. Excluding people for something like being gay is bigotry and hateful. It's no different than excluding someone for the color of their skin. "

uh, duh...
