Gay Boy Scouts? Ask the Canadians how it worked out for them, eh?
Coach is Right ^ | 5/24/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 05/24/2013 10:06:12 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

With the Boy Scout of America’s (BSA) vote to allow gay scouts (but not gay leaders as if that makes a difference) the Gay Mafia won another victory in its ongoing effort to destroy the moral fabric of America.

Since losing in the Supreme Court a decade ago when the Court said the BSA could exclude gays, the thug wing of gaydom has been threatening extorting and lobbying to get the organization to allow gays to be part of their “family.”

For over 103 years the Scouts have turned out some of our best Americas. Their creed has always been built around a foundation of moral rectitude that does not accept homosexual conduct as a...

The few. The proud. The Gay Scouts. Perhaps a new organization: “The Real Boy Scouts.”

They can learn to tie pretty bows instead of knots. Groom a poodle instead of clean a fish. Light a Flambe instead of building a fire. Sell condoms instead of popcorn.

I think 60% to 65% of those currently enrolled in the BSA will leave. 60 - 65% of 2.7 million is 1.08 million to 945,000. I would not be surprised if it reached 70% considering that about 30% of the population in America are mentally ill (aka Leftists)

Maybe we should revive the Sons of Daniel Boone, the organization founded by Daniel C. Beard that morphed into the Boy Scouts of America. Beard would have been horrified at what has become of the Scouts.

I have no problem with any boy, gay or otherwise, under the age of 18 to join the scouts and be a productive and respected member. The Boy Scouts of America shouldn’t be in the business of determining sexual preferences for children.
I do have a problem with leaders being openly gay and joining the scouts. Then there is a problem. it is only common sense that they will go where the little boys are.

Many churches have their own scouting alternatives. For instance, the Assemblies of God have “Royal Rangers”. It’s pretty much like Boy Scouts except there is more AOG doctrine in there. My guess is these are going to greatly increase. What is going to be left in BSA are the libs who have no church affiliation and no problem with homosexuality.

We are also probably going to have lots of clueless parents who are going to be shocked, just shocked, that their child is being subjected to sexuality, not just because of the presence of homosexual boys, but because of the fleeing of traditional families who are the ones standing against fornication.

IMHO, the American BS are now going to start to decline, just like the Canadians did.

if anything happens, YOU will be held responsible

I agree, but it won’t end at ‘under 18’

Now that the Scouts have surrendered the rights that the SCOTUS affirmed they had, they are now subject to a different set of legal challenges.

It’ll be a matter of 2-3 years and they will be forced to accept homosexual leaders.

Older boys will be able to recruit younger boys, now that they can be openly gay. Some young boys are just discovering their sexual identity and now they will be exposed to this lifestyle. Single mothers often put their sons in the boys scouts in the hope that they can have a positive male role model. Boys will not only identify with the leaders but boys who are older than they are. I have a problem with this.

Your statement sounds reasonable, however, I don't believe that is what is happening here. Those, like me, who believe that homosexual practice is morally wrong and harmful to the scout and all those around him see it quite differently.

We are not "determining sexual preferences for children." we are upholding moral standards for children and teaching them what it means to be a man. Scouts must promise to be "morally straight" and that is directly contradicted by this latest edict.

It is as if a scout joins a troop openly declaring that he is a thief and we must admit him without objection and without ever counseling him against it.

The Scouts still use the Buddy System. What happens when no one wants to be Buddies with the Gay kid? No Scout is allowed to be alone in a tent.

Obama didn't need gay scout leaders. All they needed were gay boys allowed. That in itself would do the trick to destroy the century old institution.

Scouting used to be for good sorta geeky guys. Now it will be for politically correct gay boys.

What straight kid is going to want to participate in that?

And so the list of Obama-inspried destruction continues.

I don’t know, I reckon if they ever let heterosexual 17 year old boys be in charge of 10-16 year old girl scouts it would be reasonable for parents to be concerned. Seems like it would be reasonable to think the the same thing for professed homosexual 17 year olds and the boy scouts, but for some reason it isn’t.

Does anyone in the know know if this new policy is a mandate or permission (vastly different)? In other words, must a scout unit accept an avowed homosexual boy, or may they accept an open homosexual?

There is a problem with condoning openly gay scouts. Young boys will think gay is good as straight. If they experience ssa they likely will think may as well try it and bang, the acts start producing what they are. Stupid.

Do you have any sons?

If your 12 year old was seduced by a 16 or 17 year old and he came home from camp and told you that he was in love with Joey, would you be OK with that?

There should be no c#ck s#%kers in the military or the scouts.

Queers are called queer for a reason, they are NOT NORMAL.

I believe that we should not sexualize our children and before my son went on weekend bib-whack he knew what was expected of him, and what was right and he knew that if a bunk mate was doing something wrong he was to let his pack leader know.
When my son was in the Scouts I knew every leader and trusted their judgment as leaders, friends and neighbors to care for my son and help teach him right from wrong. As a parent, you trust your son to be exactly what the “scout motto” says and I never had a suspicion that anything but fun for the scout was on the minds of the chaperons. How will you know if a 10, 12 or 14 year old boy is gay and why is it your business? Now when it comes to a gay adult leading the scouts, I have a problem.

“I have no problem with any boy, gay or otherwise, under the age of 18 to join the scouts and be a productive and respected member. The Boy Scouts of America shouldn’t be in the business of determining sexual preferences for children.”

But should it be in the business of endorsing wrong sexual choices?

Also, it is my sincere opinion that a younger, smaller male would be in serious danger of buggery from 16, 17, 18 year old campers.

Look at the English boarding schools, they were notorious.

Once you start down the slippery slope, there's no stopping until you hit the bottom. Next step is the leaders.

They now have to worry about the older scouts' behavior around the younger ones and what's going on in tents and gathering firewood will take on a whole new meaning.

You are VERY naive.

This decision by the Boy Scouts will allow queers to openly indoctrinate (rape) our young impressionable boys.

It is what “they” wanted. Oh, they also want to thank you for being tolerant of their tactics.

I am a Scoutmaster. Our meeting was last night 5/23. I tended my resignation effective 12/31/2013, or sooner if the Troop Committee sees fit. Several Scouts including my two sons, one 6 months from Eagle and the other about 1 year away from Eagle, also said that they are leaving on that date. Several other Scouts will follow. This is a heart breaking day.

With this policy a Scout must choose between being true to the Scout Oath and Law as they are intended, or remain in Scouting. We choose the Oath and Law.

You don’t have to be a clairvoyant like Miss Cleo to see what’s coming.

Kids can be cruel and tease or bully kids who are different. Boy Scout age group are generally younger kids who aren’t likely to be able to handle the forced entry of gays into the organization without it generating some conflict.

Next will be lawsuits and forcing gay scoutmasters into the mix to provide counseling and compassionate leadership to protect gay Scouts and encourage other Scouts to accept the gay lifestyle as just anothr choice. “Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it.”

Scouts works by youth leadership. By this policy it will be entirely possible to have a homosexual youth in a youth leadership role, and as a Junior Assistant Scoutmaster role, until the age of 18.

BSA has lost their legal protection from the Supreme Court with this choice. Homosexual adult leaders are inevitable, and it will happen very soon.

I was in scouting as a kid, didn’t quite make it to Eagle, though I was in the OA. Sorry you are having to deal with this. I think the best thing to do, is do a full frontal assault on the fund raising for the scouts. When the money stops, they will relent.

The buddy system will no longer work. The first is obvious for the reason you mentioned. But there is another angle. For adults we use 2 deep leadership to protect the youth, but it is also to protect the adults from false accusations. With the current buddy system you could have a normal scout with a homosexual scout, and the normal scout makes a false accusation against the homosexual. As leaders we have no choice but to act and report the homosexual, how would we know it is a false report?

Scouting will have to go to triplet buddies for this reason.

I have raised my children knowing the difference of right from wrong. I'm sorry if I believe it is MY job to let my children know what is the right behavior and what is wrong behavior.
It is not the job of priests, scout leaders, teachers, or any person who believes they are an authority on how I raise my children.
My children know that any sexual behavior against boys, girls, animals, or a lamp post is wrong is and inappropriate.
If they saw something going on they knew enough to report it.
If someone tried something with one of them, they were taught what to do in most cases. I was lucky enough to not have something terrible happen but we did trust a Catholic Priest once and I was informed of that incident and I can thank my son for informing me.
I saw things when I was a child too and I knew what to do or not to do, what was OK and not OK. But to deny a child the right to join scouts because of being gay is merely a witch hunt from most of you.
Like Catholic priests that became priests because they wanted to be where the boys are is an adult that doesn't care what good and bad is and let his sexual desires prey on children.

“Scouting used to be for good sorta geeky guys.”

My boys began at age 13. All three were computer literate and somewhat athletic, but to look at them none of them would strike anyone as macho. However, by the time they had completed Eagle they were good, morally strong and confidant young men.

We had one rule - we did not allow our boys to get their driver's license until they had completed Eagle. And it worked like a charm.
