MITT ROMNEY: GAY PEOPLE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SERVE IN BOY SCOUTS
GLAAD ^ | 4/26/2012 | Aaron McQuade

Posted on 04/26/2012 11:40:58 AM PDT by DesertRenegade

As support for gay mom and former Boy Scout troop leader Jennifer Tyrrell contines to pour in from across America, it's important to reflect on those who have been saying all along that moms like Jen should be allowed in the Boy Scouts. Including Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who said in a 1994 debate:

“I believe that the Boy Scouts of America does a wonderful service for this country. I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Romney was a member of Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board at the time. Romney's belief that "all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts," echoes the opinion of over 146,000 People who have joined Jennifer's Change.org action calling on the Boy Scouts of America to end its long history of discrimination against LGBT people. Tyrrell was ousted as scout leader of her 7-year-old son’s Boy Scouts troop simply because she’s gay.

This is getting ridiculous. What next ... we'll find out Romney was married to another guy in the 70's? How the hell can someone claim to be "severely conservative" when they pushed the homosexual lifestyle this hard?

Wait until Romney actually gets the nomination, and the media dump the stuff they have been holding back to make sure he gets the nomination.

"...echoes the opinion of over 146,000 People..."

Pretty small echo chamber they have there.

Regardless, the constant assault on the BSA by the homos should be of great concern to all.

A good many seem to be missing one of the sentences.

I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.

The homosexualist agenda is, of course, to deny that right to the Boy Scouts and anybody else.

Proof again, Romney is not Christian.

Romney is promoting the homosexual agenda when the “act” is an abomination in God’s eyes.

Hell, they’re already in the Boy Scouts. So many Scout Masters are pedophiles every time I see a Scout Master, I say to my myself....”I wonder....” . Hell, Kinky Friedman says: “Let gays marry. They deserve to be as miserable as the rest of us.”

I heard a fellow say at dinner the other night that he'd vote for Ho Chi Minh for President if it would get rid of Barack Obama.

I don't know what Mitt Romney's going to do if elected, but Barack Obama is a Muslim Marxist right to the bone. I've seen what he could do to our nation in 3 years. He's got to go.

Politically, I'm somewhere to the right of Jesse Helms, but I will vote for the candidate that has the courage to run against Mr. Obama. Our republic is dying. Let's save it and do the fine-tuning later.

This is why the gay MSM has pushed Romney so hard.

It may be why the Republican Establishment is behind him.

effing disgusting. There was a reason why these fags are not allowed in the Boy Scouts because this is simply like handing the keys of candy store to a 5 year old kid.

We had a fag back when I was a boy scout and he simply could not stop injecting fag stuff into the activities. It was that simple.

You don’t have to look any farther than the Catholic priesthood sexual abuse scandal to know that allowing homosexuals to be Scout leaders is a very bad idea.

What is satire anymore? There is no need for satire or fiction since the truth is even more strange.

I was a scout when we had MEN for leaders. MEN who had been to war, MEN who knew how to lead and MEN who knew how to make us able.

I tried to work with scouts when my son came along but the metrosexual revolution namby pambies made me vomit. The parents who threw their kids out at the curb for baby sitting and to hope someone else might do what they wouldn’t do. The masses of single mothers looking for a father figure and the sad effeminate boys who needed one. Then there were the dykes who were weaseling their way into all manner of things and the idiots who thought you must go to woodbadge and training led by these, these wretched things.

I was staying with scouts for my son and he was staying in it for me. We both made the admission to each other that neither one of us was enjoying it and so we quit and just did our thing together... it was much better that way.

Women do not belong in Boy Scouts but I’m not sure anybody does anymore the way it is. Very sad.

This world is not my home.

I don't vote for liberals. Therefore I will not be voting for Romney.

Good luck with your fine-tuning when you can't get the GOP to lay off the dirty tricks and rule changes that keep conservatives out.

It boggles the mind why anyone, much less Romney, would ever even consider introducing some kind of sexual element into the Scouts. This is truly insane. Let kids be kids without pushing some perverted agenda on them. This was either blatant pandering by Romney, or he is truly void of any values. Either way, we’re doomed.

Isn’t that the truth! It is going to get harder and harder for all the easily intimidated “fear” voters to justify their vote for Romney!

This has to END. It should end with us and end now, trusting God for the rest.

Capitalists and Christians are no longer a majority, nor in charge. We learn now that they haven’t been for decades, we just didn’t realize it. We do now.

The public schools have won.

I know I'm going to get flamed here, so let me start with disclaimers: Romney has never been my favorite, and I am a former Boy Scout. And, I don't know anyone that thinks Mittens is a real Conservative. That said, let's read those TWO sentences:

"I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue. I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.”

The first sentence I agree with; Mittens supports the right of the BSA to decide what it wants to do. Cool. Right answer. Second sentence; HIS FEELINGS that all people should be able to participate. Romney is playing both sides of the issue as always, but he's talking feelings not legislation. IMHO I don't have a problem with adult Lesbians being associated with the BSA since they don't go for boys. That doesn't mean all gays are child molesters, but all male child molesters that prey on boys are gay. But if the BSA, a private organization, says no to gay leaders I am 100% behind their right to do so.

Absolutely not! She's an advocate for that perverse behavior and she cannot uphold the Scout Oath and Law due to her abherrant behavior, dress and demeanor.

If any Scout were to bring up the deviancy of homosexuality during a Scout's own, do you think she'd sit there and remain silent?

She's an agitator, she knew the rules about homosexuality in Scouting and yet now she's complaining about them being enforced.

Nope, no way, no how.

I might consider it if Herman tells us what he did with all his campaign money that people sent to him. How much of it was spent paying hush money to the old broads that he hit on? If you’re innocent you stand and fight. You say: “I want to face my accusers on national TV, and they can bring their hag lawyer, Gloria Allred, with them. You fight until hell freezes over. But, no... Herman ran and hid behind his wife and God. Another philandering Black man living up to the sterotype.

What did you have in mind that is left to “save and fine tune”, when the elite have force fed you a Marxist/commie LITE as your nominee and you have swallowed him whole, under some elusive delusion of “hope” that you can do squat “later” by caving, election after election, after election, with no resistance whatsoever.

REBEllION IS TOO DAMN HARD AND IT’S SCARY.

Some of us are going to do it anyway.

Actually what he said was that the Boy Scouts have every right to decide for themselves who can and cannot join and he supports them in that...though he personally in 1994 believed gays should be allowed to be a part.

I wonder how he would answer that now, 18 years later. I do not recall anyone asking lately.

I clearly disagree with the man on his opinion, but agree whole heartidly with the declarative statement about the Boy Scouts having every right to decide for themselves...which they have, and which they do.

But, even if he still holds the 1994 personal opinion, it is clear he is not going to mess with or try to force the Boy Scouts to change...I cannot say the same at all for Obama.

I surely wish we could have gotten a win from a much more conservative candidate...I was for Palin, then Cane, then Santorum then Newt...or even at this date that we could get a brokered convention to force it, But with Newt dropping out next week, I do not believe that will happen.

Also, I expect, well before the convention, in the next few weeks that Santorum, Newt, and Palin will all come out and support and endorse Romeny...Perry already did...because he is who is going to win the nomination and we simply have to get Obama out of office.

Sad, sorry state of affairs, but they are what they are.
