9-year-old Boy Scout quits over 'unfairness of anti-gay rule'
Pink News ^ | Sep 5 2012 | Joseph Patrick McCormick

Posted on 09/05/2012 6:15:33 PM PDT by scottjewell

A nine-year-old Cub Scout has quit over the Boy Scouts of America’s policy which does not allow any gay member, volunteer or staff member.

Christopher Tiner, of Minot, Maine, had seen in the news that many Eagle Scouts had returned their badges in protest against the exclusion of gay members, volunteers and staff by the Boy Scouts of America.

Scott Tiner, Christopher’s father, said that the Cub Scout made the decision entirely on his own. Christopher reflected on his position:

“I didn’t like it that they were kicking people out,” he said. “I don’t think it’s fair.”

Christopher, formerly of pack 139, is reported to be the first scout in Maine to have quit over the controversy, and said that the decision was easy once he thought about it.

Scott, former Scout Leader also commented, saying:

“I don’t want to have a membership card to an organization that makes it very clear that this is how they feel.”

Here’s a solution for the Kid, maybe someone can form a “Gay Scouts of America”.

Let’s see how many Parents allow their kids to join...

This is why they don’t form it. They’d rather harass the traditional organization. More fun, more profitable, and gets more media attention.

The kid isn’t even old enough to realize that sick grown-up pedophiles only want in so they can molest him. Evidently his parents are also too stupid to see what is going on.

God Bless the Boy Scouts and those who don’t wish to belong can make their own decision . It isn’t the Scouts that are losing anything.

What pisses me off, as a father of 5 sons (not to mention daughters).....this kid was manipulated. He’s a freakin’ 9 year old who parroted what he was told.

Damn his “parents” and any others who pushed him to this while filling him with such vile garbage....and making it sound oh-so-noble.

Hey Christopher.

I hear they need some towel boys over at Penn State. You and your tolerant attitude should work out fine there.

I’ll guarantee you this 9-year-old has no idea what “gay” is all about or he wouldn’t be making such statements. Shame on this father for using his own son this way to make HIS point.

Right, something very off about this kid’s attitude, but then, he’s probably been indoctrinated since kindergarten.

This isn’t about equality. This is about taking over and destroying the Boy Scouts of America.

I’ll admit, I’m not overly anxious to see homosexuals set up an organization geared toward children, but that’s just me.

If there needs to be a kids group geared toward Boy-Scout like things and accepting of homosexuality (something I view to be a contradiction), then let the homosexuals set up their own organization and let parents send their kids there if they want to.

Nah, Penn State will be used as an example of Heterosexuals doing something homosexuals get blamed for. I don’t agree with this premise, but you can take it to the bank, that this is precisely what will be claimed.

Male on male activity, is homosexuality, even if a man has a heterosexual family and functions as a straight guy too.

No doubt some kids feel self-righteous indignation over the policy, but as a former adult leader with some years under my belt let me say that it's difficult enough to supervise boys being boys to say nothing of supervising some of the other adults as well.

An overtly homosexual individual ~ whether as a scout or a leader ~ is entirely too disruptive to allow for a normal scouting experience for all the others.

It isn't that they don't fit in, they want to fit in ~ and that's the problem.

If they want to come up with a homosexual scouts organization, fine ~ they going to let the cops go with them on camping trips?

Fine.

He can join an organization where he can camp with all the gay adults he can stand without needing to see a proctologist.

That is why sexualization of children is evil. Even the hippie, Rousseau, knew the importance of keeping children innocent until puberty. They can focus on learning and other more important things like building character and perseverance——once they are sexualized-—their worldview sees everything through the sexual prism and sex is reduced to a mere animal act since they are too immature to deal with the emotional or moral aspects of sex. It corrupts their thinking.

Awe and mystery help to create a healthy interest in the opposite sex-—the schools are destroying it with their Sex Ed which came from Lukacs/Marcuse to collapse Western Civ and kill off God.

The latency period-—5-12 years—is the time where boys prefer to play with boys and girls will prefer to play with girls. Putting sodomy into the schools convinces children this age that they are homosexual because they do not understand natural sexual formation and they do actually (naturally) prefer the same sex. Kids have to learn about self first-—before they can begin to understand the other-—which takes much more maturity and selflessness and experience with simple play and normal interactions with kids. Once sex enters, they see others as sex objects. It destroys their innocence and corrupts all play.

That is why homosexualists like that evil Jerry Brown is indoctrinating CA kids with anal sex in Kindergarten now. 20 years ago, real fathers would have hung him from a tree for putting such sick, evil unnatural ideas into children’s heads. He is corrupting an entire generation of children. He is trying to create Afghanistan worldview and destroy Western Civ, esp. Christian Ethics-—the ethics that got rid of sodomy and pederasty in the first place, which was rampant in the entire world until Judeo-Christian Ethics took over the West.

Why do I get the sneaky suspicion that he joined, JUST so he quit because of the “unfairness of the anti-gay rule”.

Can’t kick out people who were not members.

This little attention whore can drop out of scouts if he disagrees, that’s fine. There are other scout groups he can join, and be exposed to homosexuals who want to “help” him. Like the lesbian coaches “help” their girls.
