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.

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.
