WHEREAS, The Boy Scouts of America is now the subject of sustained attack because of its refusal to allow homosexuals as Scout leaders and its commitment to maintain references to God within its oath and literature; and

WHEREAS, This attack is part of a larger assault on all organizations which refuse to accommodate the demands of homosexual activists or atheists; and

WHEREAS, Many Southern Baptist churches sponsor Boy Scout troops.

Therefore, Be it RESOLVED, That we, the messengers to the 135th session of the Southern Baptist Convention, meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, hereby declare our encouragement to the Boy Scouts of America, and call upon that organization to maintain its historic commitments and to continue its proper work among the boys and young men of America.
