The general public is invited to attend a screening of the award-winning movie "Scout's Honor" at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday, April 28, at Countryside Church Unitarian Universalist, 1025 Smith Road in Palatine. The screening is free and will be followed by an open discussion.

"Scout's Honor" traces the conflict between the anti-gay policies of the Boy Scouts of America and the broad-based movement by many of its members to overturn them. The story is told predominantly through the experiences of a 13-year old boy and a 70-year-old man; both heterosexual, both dedicated to the Scouts and both determined to change the course of Scouting history.

The film chronicles a modern interpretation of the Scouting ideals of courage, citizenship and honor that is critically relevant today as the Boy Scouts again re-examine the alignment of their values with their current, discriminatory membership policies.

Countryside Unitarian Universalist Church is a liberal, creed-less religious institution, founded on Judeo-Christian principles that encourages each to seek his or her own spiritual path.
