Scout's Honor
The American Thinker ^ | Dec. 1, 2004 | Russ Vaughn

When I was a boy, yep, I was a Scout, And whole time I was, no Scoutmasters came out. Nope, they stayed in the closet, if any were there, And no parents protested our Scout meeting prayer. We believed in our creed, truly honored our oath, Our duty to God in those years was not loathe. No, we pledged our young lives that we’d do our best, To honor traditions behind our Scout crest.

A terrific poem on the nature of scouting and the looming liberals who would end it all.

The continuing attacks on the Boy Scouts are ridiculous. They are attacked for being anti-homosexual and anti-atheist. If the legal reasoning behind the attacks is upheld in court, all churches themselves will be illegal. Since churches believe in God, and many churches consider homosexuality sinful, the handwriting is on the wall, folks. Just as a church that forbids black members wouldn't be allowed, soon a church that forbids homosexuals and athiests will be forbidden also. All in the name of "tolerance" of course. We need to "celebrate diversity". I think George Orwell missed by a few years, but we're living in his world of 1984 now.
