Action Alert: Stop the passage of the Boy Scouts Commemorative Coin
Action Alerts | Stop the passage of the Boy Scouts Commemorative Coin
On May 21, 2008, the House of Representatives passed legislation (H.R. 5872) creating a commemorative coin for the Boy Scouts of America, an organization that explicitly discriminates against nontheists (as well as gays) in admission, employment, and even volunteer opportunities. By directing the U.S. Mint to produce commemorative coins as a fundraiser for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), the House is sending an estimated $3.5 million dollars directly to their organization.
Now, the Senate has introduced companion legislation (S. 3070) to the House bill. The Secular Coalition for America asks that you write your Senators and voice your opposition to the Boy Scouts Commemorative Coin Act as soon as possible.
