CEO on Scouts' governing board opposes ban on gays
The Associated Press ^ | June 13, 2012 | David Crary

A high-profile member of the Boy Scouts of America's governing board says he doesn't support the Scouts' policy of excluding gays and will work from within to seek a change.

Ernst & Young CEO James Turley, whose accounting firm has welcomed gays and lesbians in its own work force, becomes the first member of the Scouts' Executive Board known to publicly disapprove of the policy.

FIRE HIM! If he doesn’t have a problem with packing fudge, he should work in a candy store not the BSA! Where do these Obama-holes come from?

Corporations have helped to destroy our culture of traditional values and bribed our elected officials, thus corrupting our entire political process. They put their international interests ahead of what is good for America. Corporations are bad for Main Street.

Can he be out-voted? Is his word the final word?

“To kick off Pride Month, Ernst & Young hosted a screening and panel discussion of the PBS documentary Out and Proud in Chicago and the recent Chicago History Museum exhibit “Out in Chicago.” Approximately 30 people attended the event at the Chicago offices of Ernst & Young June 1.”

Nope, there has to be a majority on the board to change the policy. There won’t be.

is he elected or appointed.

His firm does hollyweird accounting.

He should resign or this should be seen as accepting his resignation.

"I support the meaningful work of the Boy Scouts in preparing young people for adventure, leadership, learning and service, however the membership policy is not one I would personally endorse," Turley said in a statement released by his company. "As I have done in leading Ernst & Young to being a most inclusive organization, I intend to continue to work from within the BSA Board to actively encourage dialogue and sustainable progress," Turley said.

He cannpt endorse membership but seeks to remain in place working as a lavender mafia fifth columnist. Give him the boot.

I believe, but I’m not sure, they serve one year terms - just like District, Council, and Area board seats. A nominating committee puts forward a name, and then there is a vote, and almost always unanimous. At the end of the terms, you either are invited by the nominating committee to serve another term, or you are thanked for your service and given a placque.

The placque signifies ‘you’re done’. Generally, you request not to be nominated again if you are tired or too busy to fill that role.

Nobody is ever ‘voted out’. People resign, and that’s what can happen here if enough board members do a ‘WTF?’ with him and ask if Ernst & Young will be paying off the families of all the kids who are going to get cornholed by his moment of egalitarianism.

You are absolutely correct:

Someone needs to prepare the

for James Turley.

This isn’t about hating gay people.

Only an idiot would let a 15 year-old girl sleep alone in a tent with a 15-year-old boy.

So why would anybody want to let a 15-year-old homosexual sleep in a tent with a 15-year-old boy?

What happened to:

The United States antitrust law is a body of laws that prohibits anti-competitive behavior (monopoly) and unfair business practices.

Antitrust laws are intended to encourage competition in the marketplace. These competition laws make illegal certain practices deemed to hurt businesses or consumers or both, or generally to violate standards of ethical behavior.

Government agencies known as competition regulators, along with private litigants, apply the antitrust and consumer protection laws in hopes of preventing market failure.

The term antitrust was originally formulated to combat “corporate trusts,” which were big businesses

Indeed. And if this CEO and his ilk support homosexuality in the Boy Scouts, then why don’t they support heterosexual males in the Girl Scouts? Sounds like a double standard to me.

The Boy Scouts are very strict about things like that, I am going with my son on a trip, and I had to take a Youth Protection Training Course and get certified before I was allowed to go, and they emphasize that no adult is ever to be alone with a child, I guarantee, they don’t mess around when it comes to that.

So why would anybody want to let a 15-year-old homosexual sleep in a tent with a 15-year-old boy?

It’s more than that, the opening portion of being a Boy Scout tells you the danger of people who are sexually interested in you as a young boy, a.k.a. defense against child molesters, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a man or a woman, it’s the introductory part of the BSA, and it would go totally against that part to have someone with a sexual attraction to males to be in the situations of the Boy Scouts with them, especially when you are an adolescent. And if someone who’s homosexual thinks that’s offensive, well as a Boy Scout, there are rules and disciplinary action for you making overtly sexual advances toward girls too, so all things considered, it’s not all that discriminatory.

I would hope not. Our son is grown, but when he was a boy and in Scouts, there is no way in the world we would have let him go ANYWHERE with a gay leader. Also, allowing this would go counter to the aims of the Boy Scouts:

“The BSA goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to inculcate typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.[4][5]” (Wikipedia)

Everybody knows this, and it would immediately wreck the movement. That’s the goal.

James Turley looks a bit queer. Probably a multisexual...
