Northern Star Council - Inclusive

Recommended Posts

"Well, hopefully, you are surprised by that, since most discriminatory practices have some origin in religion...or more specifically, perturbations of religions by factions or sub-leaders with their own power agendas."


But of course. The Tuskeegee Syphilis Experiments against unsuspecting African American citizens, the sterilization of "defectives" in the United States under the progressive "Eugenics" movement of the 1920s and 1930s, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's desire to abort African-American babies to reduce the "underclass," the genocide of the Kulaks under the Bolsheviks, the genocide of the Vendeans under the French Revolution, the genocide of intellectuals under Mao's Cultural Revolution, the brutal repression of the Cristeros by the revolutionary atheist government in Mexico, the ongoing market for child prostitutes in America and around the world, etc., etc., etc. All must have had their origin in religion, or something.


- I don't know God, or what he said, but I'm kinda suspicious of the idea he told it to King James.


Well, you got that last part right.

Anyone know if something happened to Northern Star Council's Inclusive Policy?


The OP link is gone!



There is still an Inclusiveness link here on the Policies page, but the page itself is gone

Their local paper tried to sensationalize a non-story. It clearly worked (you're still interested).

The council's stated policy is ten years old, and was approved by national long ago. The liberal-leaning paper's reporter gave slanted opinions on national's policy as well as the council's policy. There's no news there.

Northern Star now has a new page. The old "inclusiveness" page re-routes to this one. I'm sad that Northern Star was pushed to change their policy. BUT ... I'm not sure if the policy was changed as much as re-written to be not so in-your-face defiant.
