On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting for
Rick Perry examines in detail the issues that have led to the attacks on Scouting and the forces in American society that have organized and carried out those attacks. He also discusses the tactics of those seeking to drive God from the public square and the irony that those who attack the Scouts in the name of religious freedom will, if successful, actually suppress freedom of religion. The book also explains the Scouts' refusal to bend to the winds of “political correctness” by allowing activist homosexual scoutmasters.The ramifications of the legal challenges to Scouting are examined, including how the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has responded and—essentially—prevailed. Examining recent polling data, Perry has compared Scouting's program and values with broader trends in values in American society. As you will see, Scouting's values fit closely with those of society as a whole.
