Sounds more like an “accept and love me for my perversions” wall.

Apparently this boy chose to ignore the “morally straight” part of Scouting.

Those are the rules. And if he informed his Scout leadership that he was gay two years ago then they should have removed him then.

I do not believe that a “tolerance wall” meets the minimal standards for an Eagle Scout Project.

“After years of bullying, Ryan struggled with cutting and an eating disorder, according to his mother”

I have always believed homosexuality to be a mental disorder...and statements like this confirm it.

As an Assistant Scout Master (ASM), I have a hard time believing any bullying or hazing occurred. ASMs are trained to look for and put a stop to any hazing. Further, all adults on a camp out must attend and pass the training known as Youth Protection Training where the subject of the BSA zero tolerance for abuse of hazing of ANY kind.

His mom, Karen Andresen, was so upset by the troops' decision that she posted a petition on Change.org that has topped more than 22,000 signatures.

His Mom? What does his Dad think? What? No Dad in the picture. Imagine that.

"His project was a tolerance wall."

But there really wasn't anything he could do with fabrics or floral design.

Utter, fabricated BS with the intended outcome of 15 minutes of fame.

The article says he joined boy scouts when he was 6. I thought you couldn’t join until you are 11. (I was an Eagle Scout myself).

He spent 10 years trying to earn an award foe which he was ineligible. Too bad he never earned the “Read the eligibility requirements badge”.

That's his "tolerance wall" in the above picture?

It looks stupid, like a third-grade project.

Yeah, I know, I'm intolerant.

So no doubt he wants the media to bully his troop leader to break the “morally straight” Boy Scout pledge to accommodate his perversion.

Why don’t all those exceptional homosexual families that we constantly read about form their own organizations instead of infesting those of normal people?

Yeah that embodies the values that build this nation. The Founders of the country envisioned people building “tolerance walls” in the young nations future.

For those that don’t know the geography involved, Moraga is a suburb of San Francisco, about 15 miles to the east, on the sunny side of the Berkeley hills. Pretty rich area, but completely infested by San Francisco moonbats that want warm weather in the summer.

Which pretty much tells you all you need to know about this story...

I thought “troop” was Girl Scouts and “pack” is Boy Scouts.

Nobody should be abused like that.

On the other hand, if he is making his perversion public he can hardly expect an organization which requires its members to be morally striaght to tolerate his blantant behavior.

The problem here is that society is being pressured to accept homosexuality as an “alternative life style” by Hollywood and political “elites” when in reality it is a perversion. People who pracice it should not be abused but they and the practice should be condemned and it should be treated as what it is - a form of mental illness.

I too can see the writing on the wall: all of the current attempts to inject the bullying agenda into our public schools is nothing more than a back-door attempt to legislate recognition of the homosexual lifestyle. While the legislative process is slowly being driven by money and progressive candidates, I believe a more insidious approach is being made from a different direction - through our kids. Imagine the point in time being reached where the legal side (law) meets up with the public outcry about “fairness” and “bullying of views” - I fear a tidalwave of cultural emotion to swing the last vestiges of their plan into place: the complete capitualtion to the radical homosexual agenda.

The “BOY Scouts is for “BOYS”. He should join the Girl Scouts. If not, they should start a new scout group for the THIRD sex.

Why do we have separate bathrooms for males & females?

Why do we have separate showers for males & females?
The answer to this one “should” be obvious. Most boys would love coed showers, most girls would hate it. You girls, imagine two boys in your shower room, full of girls, talking to each other, one of them has a major erection. Would this make you uncomfortable? (YES) Would it be okay to have boys in the girls shower room? (NO).

This is the situation I faced in the boys shower room in high school. No girls, but an obvious gay boy. He didn't admit to me that he was gay, so I'm just guessing because of the “major erection” he would get being around naked boys. Now was I uncomfortable? You betcha. If I were allowed in the girls shower room, I would certainly have had the same reaction. THEY WOULD NEVER ALLOW IT!

They wouldn't let boys & girls sleep together (in a two man tent) in the scouts. YET, it's okay to subject and or allow a normal boy to sleep in a two man tent with a gay boy?

It's time for the LGBT Scouts of America for the THIRD sex.
