Merit Badges

leave a comment »

Merit: claim to respect and praise; excellence; worth

Discriminate: to make a distinction in favor of or against a person or thing on the basis of the group, class, or category to which the person or thing belongs rather than according to actual merit; show partiality

Bigotry: stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own

Hate: to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversionfor or extreme hostility toward; detest

After hearing that the Boy Scouts of America are continuing their ban on gays, it made me think that their newest merit badges are going to be for discrimination, bigotry, and hatred.  Congratulations Boy Scouts, you have earned them!  But you should drop America from your title. America doesn’t stand for the things you stand for.
