(BBBSA) policy is under attack by religious fundamentalists. (Worth Noting).
* Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) policy is under attack by religious fundamentalists. Implemented in July 2002, the new policy requires all 490 BBBSA chapters to accept homosexual mentors. Republican congressional representatives--including Tom Tancredo and Bob Schaffrer of Colorado, Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania, Jim Ryan of Kansas, Chris Smith of New Jersey, John Hostettler and Brian Kerns of Indiana, and Ernest Istook and John Sullivan of Oklahoma--have sent a letter of protest to BBBSA honorary chairs George W. and Laura Bush requesting action.
