He's a filmmaker that's his job. Let that be seperate from his political leanings. As far as resigning from the BSA, it is his right. If he no longer agrees with what they are doing, then he has every right to resign. I think the publicity is continuing to tarnish the reputation of the BSa, and that Spielberg may have resigned more so to <i>avoid</i> the politics that is starting to surround the BSA and its actions which could end up tarnishing the reputation of Mr. Spielberg himself.
