Skip to comments.Boy Scouts review controversial anti-gay policy
Posted on 06/07/2012 9:03:45 AM PDT by caldera599
The Boy Scouts of America is considering a resolution that calls for ending a 102-year-old policy theyve grappled with in recent years: banning gay scouts and scout leaders, gay advocates told msnbc.com on Wednesday. Though the organization said it would review the proposal, a spokesman insisted there were no plans to change the policy.
The new policy would throw out the national ban and allow local chartering organizations to decide whether or not they would accept gay youth and leaders, said Zach Wahls, an Eagle Scout who has advocated for the change, citing unidentified people who attended the group's national annual meeting last week where the proposal was made.

“Youth for Obama” is what they seem to prefer now....
Excuse me while I hurl and disinfect.
If the Boy Scouts change their policy to admit practicing homosexuals, every chicken hawk in the country will be applying to become a scout master. And families will be pulling their kids out, so it will mean the end of scouting.
Here is the first paragraph:
Contrary to media reports, the Boy Scouts of America has no plans to change its membership policy. The introduction of a resolution does not indicate the organization is reviewing a policy or signal a change in direction.
Another dumb argument.
Anyone is free to start, and join, a gay friendly scout org.
It won’t mean an end to scouting if an alternative is found. It could be called the American Heritage Boys or the Conservative Boy Scouts of America or something along those lines.
“...was turned in by a Scout leader from the Northeast before April 30, the deadline for submitting resolutions to the meeting. He said the resolution was read at the May 31 meeting.
While well carefully consider this resolution, there are no plans to change this policy,....”
SO this is a scam pushed by the homosexuals at MSNBC (and FNC and CNN)
ONE fringe wacko fetishist pust this forward and it is portrayed as a majority move. THIS IS MEME JOURNALISM.
This should result in a serious expulsion of those who proposed this.
Is there any segment of our society the homosexuals don’t want to destroy?
“...Wahls, the son of a lesbian couple, delivered a petition with 275,000 signatures last Wednesday that called for an end to the anti-gay policy and for the reinstatement of Jennifer Tyrrell as a den mother after she was ousted in April because she is gay.”
No, he is being raised by a SINGLE mother and her fetish sex partner. She should never have been allowed around the children. As for those 275 petition signatures, clearly fakes from outside the organization if they were even real. (aka internet fakes) The article has a box being carried with the content marked. REally? what is in that box?
Anyone who joins his sex club group to change the scout policy should be expelled.
“Is there any segment of our society the homosexuals dont want to destroy?”
“Destroy” seems kind of harsh.
I’d use “co-opt”:
To take or assume for one’s own use; appropriate:
“I dont buy their cookies anymore.”
You’re not alone on that either.
I’ll stick with destroy. The homosexual agenda is to destroy all things Christian.
BY ED VITAGLIANO | AFA Journal News Editor
“All churches who condemn us will be closed.” That was what Michael Swift, a “gay revolutionary,” declared in a February 1987 issue of the Gay Community News.
Let them know:
How are sales anyway? I know we don’t buy anymore either, and we are not alone.
When homo-leftists co-opt any organization, that organization becomes tainted, polluted, corrupted, bastardized, degraded, diverted from its true course, and ineffective at its original mission. The organization may continue to appear to exist, but if it no longer works as it did previously, then it very much is as if the organization had been destroyed.
Does GSA allow unrelated adult men to take teen girls on camping trips?
I haven’t bought GS cookies since I discovered that GSA partners with Planned Parenthood. It does not surprise me that they also go for carpet munching.
There’s a *HUGE* LDS presence in BSA. I imagine that much of BSA’s money comes from the LDS. If the LDS pulled out (and they would), the scouts would be gutted. I can’t imagine them going lavender as long as that stands.
I imagine they would, jboot, as would a huge number of Catholic scouts. I couldn’t even imagine my own boys’ alma mater (a Catholic school with a booming Scout population) putting up with it for one second.
Thanks, that makes more sense.
So someone with an agenda introduces a resolution, then contacts his media buddies to claim that the Boy Scouts are considering it. The media then implies that its a done deal.
