Posted on 03/03/2009 2:59:58 PM PST by Joiseydude
President Obama says he wants to be president of all the people. But some groups are urging him to make an exception for the Boy Scouts of America.
Critics of the Scouts who are outraged that the group is allowed to exclude gays and atheists while receiving federal funding are urging Obama to reject the group's honorary presidency, a designation bestowed on every U.S. president since William Howard Taft in 1910.

They shouldn’t offer it to him. He doesn’t deserve the honorary presidency, let alone the real presidency.
Go ahead refuse it Obama. A giant window into the bottomless pit where your soul should be.
I would prefer that they defer the honor to later. Or to someone else.
The Boy Scouts would get my support if they refused the honor.
In honor of his economic policies, they should confer the title “ Big Chief-Hole-in-the-Pocket” to him
This is probably fine with the scouts.
The Obamaloon has not the normals, the fortitude, or the intelligence to ever attain a reasonable scout rank.
But, he does have a Harvard Law degree. (Go figure out how.)
The pole smokers should form their own boy scout troops.
They should be called . . . ?
*Just have to take care of a little paper work first. Sign a few documents to release the honorary and BTW, bring along your BC.
Nuts. Nuts to the Boys Scouts for offering it to Obama. Nuts to the Obama cult for thinking the Obama should not take it. Nuts! Just plain nuts no matter which way you look.
Obama’s homosexual “sensitivity” will keep him from supporting the Boy Scouts...
"The Progressive Rump Rangers of Amerika."
” has not the normals”??????
They made slick willy honorary president of the BSA during his term. I sent my eagle award, plaque, merit badge sash and the flag I carried as a crew leader at Philmont in 1974 back to the national office. I got a nice letter from the CEO of SW Bell (CEO of the BSA)returning my stuff. I sent it back and said no thanks.......The BSA is not what it used to be.F’em....red
Have you seen the kind of stuff Harvard Law offers up nowadays?
That’s exactly how.
...the group is allowed to exclude gays and atheists while receiving federal funding......not to mention the gay atheists, who are all *dressed* up with no place to go.
My Eagle Scout Board of Review was supposed to be held on 9/11/01, but was postponed.
Prior to that, I was a Life Scout for 4 1/2 years before attaining the rank of Eagle. My dad was (and still is) the one who would request congratulatory letters from presidents, and he likes to joke that I waited to become Eagle after Clinton was out of office.
Anyway, as I mentioned, my dad is the one who requests the letters, and it’s such a stark contrast among the presidents.
The Bushes ALWAYS send a letter. So did Ford, and his was always the best (he was an Eagle).
Clinton sent letters while he was in office, but after Jan 20, 2001, they stopped coming. My dad is polite and always asks “do you want me to request one from Bill Clinton? He hasnt responded in years, but I’ll request if you like.” That answer is usually a “no.”
And Carter? Never even a reply. I expect the same from Obama. Actually, I expect nobody will even request one from Obie.
Sounds like they’re ready to “out” him should he not do as they direct.
I never understand all this stuff. I understand the politically correct crowd hates the Scuots because of the ban on homosexual scout leaders. It’s like there’s no perspective or balance or nuance in this world anymore. Even if you are big on gay marriage, why do we have to destory the boy scouts because they aren’t on board with the gay agenda? Can’t you see all the good that the Scouts do, even if you support all the gay pressure groups?
It’s like we live in a black/white world. If an organization or individual doesn’t follow the politically correct agenda right down the line, if they don’t swallow every bit of the liberal line, then that organization or individual is targeted. It doesn’t seem to matter what benefit they are to society; in the PC world, the Boy Scouts are the enemy.
“are urging Obama to reject the group’s honorary presidency..”
Do it, fool. Embrace the scum and piss off another 50 million Americans.
Why are the Boy Scouts offering this communist anything? Oh, yeah... he’s the first.....
They should offer the honor to Joe Biden.
Obama meant he wants to be President to the 53 million (fraud votes et al) who voted for him. Obama has repeatedly said the people voted for my policies. I sure did not vote for him or anything close to his marxist, racist policies.
248 million did not vote for Obama, excluding underage population counts. They are nobody to Obama. Obama himself excludes the other 200 million.
He’s more of a girl scout.
From that charter:
That the purpose of this corporation shall be to promote, through organization and cooperation with other agencies, the ability of boys to do things for themselves and others, to train them in Scoutcraft, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues, using the methods which are now in common use by Boy Scouts.
Sec. 3, federal charter, Boy Scouts of America
June 15, 1916, by the United States Congress
Can't have boys, or girls either, doing things for themselves, being patriotic, having courage and self-reliance now can they? It would ruin their whole agenda.
Hmm, you don't suppose that's what's really behind the Attacks on scouts and Scouting?
Probably not. Probably because they've offered it to every President since they were chartered, and they *think* he's the President now.
Like someone said up thread, they should request a certified copy of his birth certificate with the acceptance papers.

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful,
thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
Personally I think they do a lot of good too, but if they're excluding people based on whatever arbitrary criteria they decide then they really shouldn't be getting taxpayer dollars to operate, let their membership support it fully.
If you need information about the Morman involvment with Scouting google has plenty of information.
You sir or madam are an idiot.
Why are the Boy Scouts offering this communist anything? Oh, yeah... hes the first.....No, this is how Scouts act towards the President of the United States.
He is a usurper. They will have to take the award back when he is exposed for the counterfeit POTUS that he is.
No kidding. I just learn recently, to my horror, that the Philadelphia Council that was being blackmailed into going "gay" or lose the use of the public building (for which a perpetual lease was in effect) caved on the issue. My heart sank. Maybe this is just the isolated action of an individual council beaten down until it didn't know how to fight anymore - but Scouting should be tougher than this.
That was then; this is now. The exponential matastasization of a coarsening, Godless society and government corruption will soon turn this reasonable mindset around.
What federal funding would that be? I'm not aware that the BSA gets federal funding.
Just saw a ticker a while ago on FOX which said the Pres did indeed refuse to accept the title of honorary pres of the Boy Scouts of America because of the BSA excludes atheists and homosexuals. The end is near.
There is nothing arbitrary about excluding homosexuals from the Scouts. The Boy Scouts are protecting children, as they should.
You have a problem with the Mormons?
there fixed it.
Google also has plenty of information about space aliens taking people for rides in their little green ships.
Beandogs assesment is correct.
