FRC Stands for Boy Scouts Morality
Recently, the Boy Scouts of America have considered ending its ban on allowing homosexuals to serve as leaders. FRC is choosing to stand for the code that the Boy Scouts have held for about a century:
“On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.”
Rob Schwarzwalder, FRC's Senior Vice President, and Tony Perkins, have strongly supported the morality of the Boy Scouts and released a statement to show their strong concern over the possible changes.
