Christian-Based Program Forms as Alternative to Boy Scouts
newsmax ^ | Andrea Billups

Posted on 07/10/2013 7:45:30 PM PDT by Morgana

A coalition of youth groups is creating a national organization for boys as an alternative to the Boy Scouts of America, following the Boy Scouts' decision to allow openly gay members to join, The Washington Examiner reported.

The new organization will officially launch on Jan. 1, 2014, but will begin chartering new units around the country in November, according to a statement released Tuesday by the as-yet-unnamed group's interim executive director, Rob Green of Spartanburg, S.C.

The group will be "distinctly different" from the Boy Scouts, with some similarities, Green said. For example, rank advancements from the Boy Scouts can be transferred. The group will offer "transition" plans for Scouting units who are interested in moving from the Boy Scouts of America, Green said.

"Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens," Green said in a statement posted on the group's website.

"The new program will be an exciting and motivating outdoor-based program focused on leadership and character development for boys, and founded on principles and values that reflect a Christian worldview," he said.

This is ass backwards. The Boy Scouts shoulda never given in. The fags should be the ones forming their own group.

the constitution for the new group should be airtight and explicit: no poofters allowed or these freaks will try to join in, make another lawsuit and ruin it like always.

They can’t accept financial support or marching orders from corporate America — that’s what did in the boy scouts, more than any homos per se.

Fred, most good men marry women and dedicate their financial rewources to raising the babies that soon follow. Because homosexuals do not bear anything in terms of a normal family environment, most who have decent jobs subsequently have piles of money in the bank. This money is then used to grease the palms of very powerful lawyers in ordrr to attain whatever they want legalized or otherwise accepted, no matter how perverse or antithetical to civilizaion.

The queers banded together, pooled their money and organizational structure and used lawyers and other powerful criminal minds to attack and intimidate corporations who sponsored and supported the Scouts.

Throw in the fact that we have a queer, muslim communist as President, and one can quickly see that no one with corporate assets wants to risk losin anything to these vile demons and other clearly loyal servsnts of Satan.

Gee, sounds like a winning plan:

Faith-based group starting alternative to Boy Scouts — will allow gay youth, adults

A faith-based group opposed to the Boy Scouts recent decision to allow gay youth to join has formed their own program for kids and teens in response — but they will also let gay youth and adults participate, leaders said Tuesday.

While the program, which doesn’t yet have a name, will allow gays, it won’t let them “flaunt” it, said John Stemberger, founder of OnMyHonor.net, a coalition opposed to the BSA’s vote in late May to change the controversial membership policy.

“We don’t think sex and politics should be in a program for kids. Those are issues for parents,”said Stemberger, of Orlando, Fla., who left the Boy Scouts along with his two sons over the decision in May.

“If a young man has a same-sex attraction he would not be turned away in the program, but he’s not going to be allowed to kind of openly flaunt it and carry a rainbow flag,” he added, apparently referring to the participation of some BSA members in LGBT pride parades in recent weeks.

Allow them in and they'll end up succumbing to them eventually.

Isn’t that a whole lot like the Boy Scouts already? That don’t make no sense!

Why are the gays so interested in joining the Boy Scouts when they already have an organization - NAMBLA?

Why are gay men working so hard to be able to be around young boys?
