To all my equality supporting followers (I hope that is all of you): Please call the Boy Scouts of America at (972) 580-2330 to take a one question poll regarding whether or not you support the change in policy that would lift the ban and allow gay men to work with the organization. Please vote yes! It literally took me one minute.

Consider my heart warmed.
