    Advice please - objection to "Don't Raise Our Rents" caused by religious policy

    Hi Wayne.

    I recently posted some info about the "Don't raise Our Rents" campaign to our local Community Internet Project mailing list. This goes out to many community and voluntary groups around Sussex, and to anyone with an interest who signs up.

    There have been two responses on the list so far.

    The first:

    To be honest I don't think the scouts should get any kind of public money or
    consideration at all. I wrote to them a couple of years ago to see if I
    would be accepted as a proposed leader or member of the leadership staff (my
    family are very active members in the scouting movement).

    I had a reply back that because I was an atheist I wouldn't be allowed to
    hold such a position. There would be a public outcry if an organization just
    refused membership to (say) Asians and were receiving subsidy from
    tax-payers money to carry out their activities.

    YMMV of course
    and the second, agreeing with the first:

    Totally agree. If they can't be inclusive they can't expect public money.
    Any advice on how to respond?

    Hi Duncan,
    Personally, I wouldn't respond as it will only result in a further post.
    Regards,
