Exclusive attitudes go both ways

Success - Article sent! close

Interesting article recently about Elizabeth Vesto's mission to begin a local Navigators USA chapter (an alternative to the Boy Scouts of America). Vesto and her family resigned from the Boy Scouts of America after the organization decided to ban gay troop leaders. Vesto claims she wanted an "inclusive alternative" to the BSA.

Just wondering where that inclusive attitude was in May of this year when Vesto publicly opposed Kildeer's consideration of permitting a Chick-fil-A to be constructed on the former Muddy Paws site. Ms. Vesto, in opposition to the company building in Kildeer, exclaimed, "We are Kildeer. We're an upscale community and we need to preserve our reputation. There are plenty of fast food places with playgrounds and drive-throughs in neighboring communities." That, Ms. Vesto, seems pretty "exclusive," wouldn't you agree?
