NEW YORK (AP) After a confidential two-year review, the Boy Scouts of America on Tuesday emphatically reaffirmed its policy of excluding gays, ruling out any changes despite relentless protest campaigns by some critics.

An 11-member special committee, formed discreetly by top Scout leaders in 2010, "came to the conclusion that this policy is absolutely the best policy for the Boy Scouts," the organization' national spokesman, Deron Smith, told The Associated Press.

Yea, a missed opportunity of colossal proportions for pedophiles maybe.

In my case, I can still be a Scoutmaster and enjoy the world’s finest youth organization.

Teaching intolerance of deviant behavior is a good thing.

All values are not equally valid.

I’m sure all the Jerry Sandusky’s of the world are deeply disappointed.

Good for them.

Having a gay man lead a boy scout troop on a camping venture would be like having a hetero man on viagra leading a girl scout troop on a camping venture.

Gays don’t breed.

They recruit.

“OK. Here comes the storm of protest from the left.”

They’ll be using the holier-than-thou approach, which coming from intolerant leftist freak Hussein Heads always strikes me as uproariously hilarious.

Great news. They do not want to allow homosexuals to ruin the Boy Scouts—like they did the Boy Scouts in Germany where homosexual orgies were conducted in the forests of Germany with boys-—which later grew into the Hitler Youth. It was a homosexual that founded the Boy Scouts in Germany in the late 1800’s. (They want to recreate Ancient Greek life where pederasty was the norm and respectable).

Ideas always have consequences and the idea that “sodomy is good” can NEVER be taught to young children like it was to German boys like Hitler and Roelm and the SA nasty nazis.

When the degrading acts of sodomy are embraced-—it is easy to degrade and debase all human beings which was easy for the homosexual SA force-—they also regularly used the boys in Hitler’s Youth for their orgies also. Pederasts were given control over the boys by Hitler himself.

The Boy Scouts show a lot more courage than the “weasel scouts” in Congress.

Yes, sodomy was considered “the German vice” all throughout the 1920s and ‘30s, and it was still rampant within the Nazi regime. We do not need the corruption which occurred with Hitler Youth to happen again with our BSA, and thankfully, their decision today inspires confidence.

For the most part, the Left is not having children.

Ha, already the gay blogs are buzzing with “this means war” RE the BSA press announcement today - they cannot seem to accept inevitable defeat in this area. This needs to spread to other cultural areas as well...

The totally absurd attack on normal human sexuality continues. Why would anyone suggest that in an organization that seeks to prepare boys to be men, that they ought to be looking to those who are obviously confused as to a male role in society?

See Boy Scouts Of America & A Leftwing Agenda.
