    I have the greatest respect for Erick Erickson (“k” added 6/18/2013 thank you stevemaley), but consider him wrongheaded on this whole change in Scouting policy (http://www.redstate.com/2013/05/24/i-have-no-problem-with-the-scouts-decision/,http://www.redstate.com/2013/06/08/a-faith-to-stand-firm/).
