The Atlantic: Kill Boy Scouts Like Rabid Dogs
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/08/20/The-Atlantic-Wants-to-Kill-Boy-Scouts-Like-Rabid-Dogs?utm_source=e_breitbart_com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Breitbart+News+Roundup%2C+August+21%2C+2012&utm_campaign=20120821_m113328954_Breitbart+News+Ro ^ | 8/21/12 | Warner Todd Huston

Remember how the far left in America has said since the rise of the Tea Party that the right is awash in "violent rhetoric"? What about the proposition to kill the Boy Scouts like one would kill a rabid dog? That is what a columnist for The Atlantic has implied.

James Hamblin, the magazine's health editor, proclaimed his desire to kill Boy Scouts based on his distaste for their recently re-affirmed policy of refusing to admit openly gay members. Hamblin feels justified in using violent, even hateful rhetoric to attack the Boy Scouts merely because he disagrees with them.

Boy Scouts is an organization that was and is so close to being great. Remember when they had to put Old Yeller down because he got rabies? It's not like he was a bad dog, but he got a brain infection and he tried to eat Travis

Apparently the First Amendment only applies if you agree with gays?

It should be noted that Hamblin posted his desire to kill Boy Scouts the day after another gay activist tried to do just that, kill people with whom he disagrees. Hamblin posted his hate-mongering screed the day after a gay activist entered the Washington DC headquarters of the Family Research Council intent on mass murder.

Hamblin next went on a hyperbolic trip of accusations that the Scout's policy will "cause."

Sex has no place in the BSA, period.

BSA is about building character and integrity amongst young men, not to teach them that homosexuality is a good thing. I'd imagine the BSA would look poorly upon a scout who wanted to openly discuss the mechanics of his heterosexual desires.

The fact that those on the left can't see that is disgusting.

The BSA will keep fighting this for as long as there are parents and Scouters determined to keep queers away from impressionable young men whose sole purpose in Scouting is to learn and grow.

Sex, perversion, etc. have no place in the organization.

Hamblin is one of those guys who breaks new ground in the hope that mind-numbed robots like OWS will act based on what he says.

This is not just one person's opinion. The Left hates BSA and the boys who participate in BSA.

If Obama wins reelection I fully expect him to immediately attack BSA’s ability to operate:

- Ban from US military bases
- Ban BSA from conducting activities in federal parks or on federal land
- Ban US military forces from participating in/supporting BSA

The number of letters from Scouts returning their Eagle and resigning from Scouting pale in comparison with the number of Scouts who would resign if BSA decided to embrace homosexuality the way the activists want.

The left gleefully engages in the age-old sport of Christian Bashing, taking their rhetoric closer and closer to the realm of actual physical persecution. They fail to realize, however, that unlike the days of Roman persecution, we’re armed to the teeth this time.

The Boy Scouts of America doesn’t want the liability of some pedophile getting into a position where he can prey on Scouts. When I went to camp with my son, they told me I could not be the only adult in camp if there were kids present, there had to be two adults at all times. That’s how concerned they are.

We’re not only armed to the teeth. We are also not willing to turn the other cheek. And many of us are fed up with being denigrated and attacked for being Christians, whether verbally, politically or ideologically.... by Godless, soul-less leftists.

Any refusal by society to deny these predators, safe hunting grounds for unwitting victims, or endorse their behavior, is being attacked as “hate”.

To paraphrase Billy Graham:

If God doesn't punish America, he owes Sodom an apology.

James Hamblin, why don't you start 'The NAMBLA SCOUTS'? please leave the Boy Scouts alone. I'm glad that unlike the 'Lesbian and TG Scouts' (aka the Girls Scouts), the BSA is fighting the liberal attempts to get GAYS into it.

Do you know that Homicide is ILLEGAL? Or do you think that because you are a NUTCASE you can kill people who do not agree with you??

Matter of fact, Jimbo, why don't you start the NAMBLA SCOUTS in either Iran, Cuba or North Korea?? If successful, DO NOT bring it here!!

Apparently the First Amendment only applies if you agree with gays?

When the 1st Amendment was written, duels were still legal. If the faggots don't like how everyone else utilizes their 1st Amendment rights; if the queers want to threaten children.......well, let's see how they like 2nd Amendment rights.

Conservatives must be doing something right.....homos are threatening Boy Scouts and the New Black Welfare Party is threatening to put their boots on whitey's neck. So many people threatening to kill us; if only I were this popular in High School.

Hamblin next went on a hyperbolic trip of accusations that the Scout's policy will "cause." Perpetuating a culture where gay teenagers -- who are already commonly battling notions of inferiority and self-hatred -- can be openly and decidedly told they aren't welcome among a preeminent organization that purports to represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals, is dangerous.

So this Hamblin is saying that an organization that purports to represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals should not represent and define a standard of behavioral ideals. The left's idea of "logic" is laughable.

Rifle and Shotgun shooting on my sash. My dad did both of those plus Archery among his 42 merit badges. I enjoyed archery, but there was a limited amount of time in scout camp. I only went once in my scouting career. Earned First Class, swimming merit badge, rifle shooting (marksmanship), and canoeing merit badge that week. Music and bugling were a natural fit for my skill at playing trumpet in the band. Electricity and Electronics were easy and a nice fit. Lifesaving was a bit of an endurance experience. Had to go to Balboa Scout camp daily for a week to earn that one. Fingerprinting was fun. You had to print and submit two sets of prints that had to be acceptable to the FBI. It was all lots of fun and very practical.

Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals. #x2CC;b
