The Boy Scouts of America made a lot of progress this past year, but, frankly, the group still hasn't done enough!
Carly Rae Jepsen and Train were so displeased with the organization's continued intolerance that she dropped out of the BSA's National Jamboree months ago, refusing to perform for them until total equality was reached.
Apparently, though, not every musician is as concerned with equal rights and the fate of the LGBT community.
3 Doors Down signed on to headline tomorrow's concert, regardless of the fact that the policy change on permitting gay troop members isn't going through until January and openly gay troop leaders continue to remain barred from volunteering for the foreseeable future.
The bands rep isn;t commenting, but we want to know why the Here Without You singers performs for a group that condones sexual orientation-based discrimination!? !
The Boy Scouts do good within many different communities, there is no denying that, but many of their policies are antiquated and exclusionary!!
We were proud of the way CRJ stood up for ALL of her fans earlier this year when the Call Me Maybe singer tweeted:
Hopefully 3 Doors Down comes to its senses and stands up for what's right!!
