Todd Starnes - Fox Radio ^ | April 14, 2010 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 04/13/2010 6:18:12 PM PDT by VRWCTexan

Assembly Democrats killed a proposed resolution honoring the Boy Scouts of America. The measure died in the Assembly Judiciary Committee on a party-line vote. Three Republican voted to support the Boy Scouts — seven Democrats voted against the measure.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Committee chairman Mike Feuer led the opposition – “citing the Scouts’ history of not allowing gays to serve in their leadership.”

This news arrives the same day the Scouts get hammered because male child molester was allowed to serve as a scoutmaster and molested 1,000 boys. Gays may try to claim he isn't gay. BS. That's what happens when a gay male is put in a position of trust over a troop of boys.

Feuer is a POS.

The Scouts are like the Catholic Church: damned if they do, and damned if they don’t.

All sorts of organizations and states are kicking the Scouts in the teeth because of their allegedly anti-gay policies...at the same time that there is a huge gay child molestation case going on against the Scouts in one of their districts that did tolerate gays.

Well then they ought to be receptive to passing a resolution honoring the Catholic church.

On one hand, the scouts are critizised for not allowing gays.
On the other hand, they are sued and convicted when a leader molests a boy.
How can you do anything right in this climate.

The Boy Scouts just lost a big lawsuit because they had some gay leaders .http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/08/28/eveningnews/main3213145.shtml

Now the a-wipes in California want them to bring more Homo’s into the Scouts. What the hell is wrong with these people?

“citing the Scouts’ history of not allowing gays to serve in their leadership.”

After the big lawsuit I've been hearing about all day, I think the Scouts at least deserve the "Damned if you do, damned if you don't" Award.

The Catholic Church made the same mistake of thinking they could have gay priests as long as they didn’t practice homosexuality. We all know what happened there. Homosexuality is a mental illness.

The real agenda is first keep boys away from God and to destroy this country. With the "damn if you do, damn if you don't" mindset, it would greatly accelerate the destruction of them, therefore would help on their agenda. The Boy Scouts are considered a pro-American and Pro-God organization.

Also many boys that go through scouting learn many of the skills that make them successful in later life not only in business but also in the home as well. With intact families and success in life, those who are power hungry (liberals) cannot control those people.

On one hand, the scouts are criticized for not allowing gays.
On the other hand, they are sued and convicted when a leader molests a boy.

Tarnish them for not allowing gays in leadership and yet, sue them for abuse 25 years ago by a closeted gay leader.

The Catholic Church was infiltrated. Our Pope is just now kicking out the gays, and that’s why the press hates him so much and is trying to find some scandal to pin to him.

It must be hard to be a reporter. On the one hand, you want to attack decent organizations...but on the other, you want to protect the very people who corrupted them.

Ah, so that’s it. I knew something sinister was afoot - it was too conveeeeenient that there were all these anti-Pope stories about. Of course one of the things they’re trying to hang him on is “looking the other way” when it sounds like what he’s really trying to do his to clean house.

With odds like that it is no wonder that that CA is FUBAR.

It’s not the kids fault that the Boy Scouts don’t let in gays.

Come on over to my unit in north Orange County. We do stuff American boys are suppored to do like throw tomahawks, shoot arrows and rifles, hike and camp at least once a month. We also developed a religious award program which is open to other units and Girl Scouts and we do service projects. I figure that any normal freeper is a friend and is most welcome to join us!

I guess the rats want to create a situation for the scouts similar to the priesthood pedophile case.

Our oldest boy should be planning his Eagle project this summer, and the second one by next year (he’s very competitive, and might beat the older brother to Eagle). Great program that’s been terrific for our sons.

We had a couple of girls after the first two boys, and then four more sons (8, 6, 4, 1), so we have many more years of Scouting ahead!

Our son is working on his Eagle rank as well, in CA no less.

I was afraid this would be the result of this lawsuit, now there may be a flood of suits because the dam was breached with this one.

The lawsuit comment was in regards to the ruling yesterday about the homos.

Tangled up my thoughts for a minute, sorry.

Homosexuals should not be allowed in any normal male group,
They need extensive therapy.
