Boy Scouts, trying to help troops, run up against political correctness.... UPDATED

Boy Scouts ... those patriotic young Americans who have a love of God and learn to care for others more than themselves ... were taught a tough lesson recently in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As reported by Boston Magazine:
In these uncertain times, it’s nice to know we can rely on some things. The sun will always rise and set. Gravity will always hold us down. And Cambridge will always be liberal to a fault.
So liberal they interpreted Boy Scouts manning donation boxes to raise money to support the troops as being too "pro-war." More on this video.

You can contact Marsha Weinerman, executive director of Cambridge's Election Commission, by email or by calling (617) 349-4363. Please be polite.

Help the Troops: You can show up Ms. Weinerman and those opposed to our troops by sponsoring a Christmas/holiday care package for our troops - and Move America Forward will be more than happy to send it over to Iraq and Afghanistan with love and appreciation.

Updated 11/16/07: The Boy Scout leader has spoken out against the city of Cambridge:
"We have never seen anything like this decision in Cambridge before. The city is changing for the worse if decisions like this are allowed to be made."
