I had to do the same thing when I upgraded my license to "real ID". I also had to do a background check about6 years when I was teaching Hunter Ed classes. I no longer do so due to health concerns. :cry: To not do so would disallow me the ability to teach. I was led to understand that it was a federal requirement and that teachers were supposed to do this too. Well I got it and can now teach , care for old people and all the other good stuff. 8)

Xsales, Short answer,,, no.

As to why,, the BSA & the GSA are totally 2 different organizations. The BSA has chosen to allow girls,, while the GSA chooses to not allow boys.

The Supreme Court case the BSA WON was about the fact they are a private organization, and as such can control membership requirements.

I understand your frustration Ty but the reality is they, The BSA, can get all that information with out your permission. Them asking for it is just a way of theoretically weeding out unwanted.... we live in a time when in reality there are very few secrets.... it's all just lawyering.

I sure wish they had let girls in back when I was a scout... we used to have to hike 5 miles to get to the girl scout camp...

It was a good organization back in my day... My Dad and I had a lot of good memories... He has been gone quite a long time and BSA is gone as well.

This all started with giving an inch.... Now they are taking miles....

Times have changed over the last 50 years, Organizations have changed. The NRA has changed, schools have changed, church has changed. Most everything has changed. Imagine if we were still doing exactly as we did 50 years ago. I think most of us would not be very happy.

Jimbo,, I understand change,, but sometimes certain changes are NOT good! There are plenty of examples of bad changes as well.

There are many alternative organizations to the BSA. You may want to consider one of these.

Sad but true. The PC police are ruining our country. I have dropped out of various organizations due to much of the same reasons.

It seems to me the powers that be at the district and council levels (sorry if I got those terms wrong its been 50 years since I was involved) have bought into the new ways. And, in fact, at the troop level.
If they hadn't we wouldn't be seeing people leaving Boy Scouts.
A guy I bowl with has been involved with the Boy Scouts for many years. He's getting out due to the policies.

The Boy Scouts Of America ceased to exist when they allowed gays and girls in.

I could not agree more.
Question: why did they allow this to happen?

Corporate pressure. Many corporate supporters are veering left now.
