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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Scout Oath

“On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”

Ooorah!

Semper Fi, Scouts, from this old Star Scout and Marine!

The homosexual recruiters view the BSA as the ultimate prize. The millions of young men in Scouts are an irresistible draw for them. Its like an all you eat buffet for them. They will do just about anything to infiltrate the organization.

Imagine how this makes a gay guy like Obama feel. He is boy enough to be president, but not a Boy Scout. He can tie the nation up in debt, burn trillions of dollars, but he can’t learn how to tie knots and start fires with sticks. So what if he is an effeminate twinkie, a bathhouse teaser, he may be a pervert because he didn’t have a wholesome, Boy Scout experience. Queers have tears too.

How do we support those BUSINESS corporations that support the boyscouts.

If an airline supports them, then they get my business.

Is there a BSA sponsor list?

Looks like the men who run the Boy Scouts understand what it is to be a man. Too bad the ladies that run the Girl Scouts never learned how to be a woman.

The Boy Scout credo clashes with the homosexualists’ lifestyles.
As much as they would like to square this circle, it is impossible.

Boy Scout Oath or Promise

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

Note that the Boy Scout Oath has traditionally been considered to have three promises. Those three promises are delineated by the semicolons in the Oath, which divide it into three clauses. The three promises of the Scout Oath are, therefore:

Duty to God and country,
Duty to other people, and
Duty to self
DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY: Your family and religious leaders teach you to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your duty to God.

Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member and a good citizen, by working for your country’s good and obeying its laws, you do your duty to your country. Obeying the Scout Law means living by its 12 points.

DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily and helping when you’re needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do your part to make this a better world.

DUTY TO SELF: Keeping yourself physically strong means taking care of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person of strong character.

Boy Scout Law

A Scout is:

Trustworthy,
Loyal,
Helpful,
Friendly,
Courteous,
Kind,
Obedient,
Cheerful,
Thrifty,
Brave,
Clean,
and Reverent.

The Scouts are going to get hit hard for this by the Light Loafer Mafia. Time to increase the community support for these noble,embattled kids. And watch for sponsors who cave to the Poofs and withdraw their support for Scouting. Let them know early and certain that it will cost them a lot more to DROP their support than to continue it.

God save the Boy Scouts! Hear, hear!

I am sure they do, but in today’s world they may not publish it. Although I have for many years been involved in Scouting, I have too many pounds, replaced knees and old age aches to go hiking and camping these days. It was fun while it lasted.

You might call a local District Headquarters for info.

All the homosexual lobby wants to do is infiltrate the Boy Scouts, destroy them and then move on to their next goal.

Of course the Boy Scouts of America know this, refuse to die and this infuriates the—well, the enemy.
They can start their own organization, the `Lavender Berets’ or whatever they want to call themselves.

Yes, it is up to companies who sponsor the Scouts to be firm and robust, and to stand strong in the face of gay advocacy who will begin their petitions crying for companies to stop sponsoring BSA. If more would stand firm, as the BSA has, how easily that whole agenda could be stopped in its tracks. Hope today’s ruling is a sign of changing times...

Good going scouts.
I applaud your decision.

Now, take that limp wrist neutered boy scout handbook that’s being forced on you, rub two sticks together and burn it and go back to the original “Boy Scouts Handbook: The First Edition”, 1911. (Yes, it’s still available).
You want to learn how to be men not latte-drinking city wusses.

It does inspire confidence!

The study of history is so crucial in knowing and understanding the Nature of Man. That is why Marxists try to erase and twist history—to keep people ignorant of it.

Homosexuality—one of the oldest vices—was at times revered—by the Ancient Greeks and Samurai and other cultures. Pederasty is essential for this type of culture to exist. The promotion of sodomy will always result in boys being used because it is a conditioned and learned sexual identity in an artificial construct of human nature. No one is born with pre-determined sexual preferences, other than what nature has planned. Any perversion of nature—is directed from that environment of the child. Trauma and emotional damage in children will elicit disruption of natural sexual identity formation. Most, if not all, homosexuals were physically abused when children. Of course, in Ancient Greece this trauma was normalized and celebrated, so sodomy was considered “good”.

Like Chastity Bono—their “reality” of the body is completely warped and twisted when adults use them sexually—as Chastity was raped by a Lesbian when a girl.

That is why homosexuals are determined to normalize their behavior-—they have to get the kids early—to make their behavior seem natural and not offensive. Conditioning and normalization has to start in grade school and Christian Ethics eliminated—that is why God was kicked out of schools so Marxists could create a new ethical system based on “feelings” and not reason and nature.

For people not to understand the nature (unnatural) of homosexual behavior and the underlying psychology of the practice will mean that people fall for the lies about this learned lifestyle.

The Boy Scouts will destroy itself from within if they ever consider sodomy “Good” like the Ancient Greeks and will make the boys targets of lust. It flips the Ethics of America and Christianity on its head and Right and Wrong become anything and the slippery slope will be to embrace the Sanduskys of the world—like they did in Ancient Greece.
