>> His project, a “tolerance wall,”

I’d seriously like someone to explain to me why that “tolerance” BS only goes ONE way.

So I hate faggots! TOLERATE it, beyotch. I’m not gonna change. I was born that way.

First of all, I disagree with homosexuality and agree with keeping it out of boy scouts. With that said, however, the troop’s leadership failed not only boy scouting in general, the troop but also the boy as well.

- If the scoutmaster approved the project, then unfortunately he owes that final signature. The scoutmaster could have rejected it at the start and told the scout to think of a different project

- when the scout came out of the closet, the troop should have expelled the boy at the time but instead let him continue in the project and the troop

A few thing can be done differently in this case.

“Tolerance wall” my ass! These same people will drive a nail in your tire when the see a Romney sticker on your car. Boy Scouts should’ve kicked him out long ago.

He "hopes" to go to the University of San Francisco.

Who on earth in his RIGHT mind would actually "hope" to go to the University of San Francisco???

(...unless he thinks there's a happy hunting ground there).

Gays never grasp the concept that “no means no”, and when they turn activist, they wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them between the eyes with a hammer.

His hazing drama screams BS, his “tolerance wall” and sob story of supposed victimization are blinking “ATTENTION HO” in pink neon.

The only attention this lie needs is a firm depression of the flush handle.

Ugh! My grandfather, Eagle class of 1932 and Eagle Scout Committee Chairman for the Lincoln Trail District for almost forty years, is spinning in his grave over this.

Eagle projects are supposed to be something that improves the community and involves your entire troop. This sounds like a fourth-grade art fair project.

His story, or the reporting of it, is bullshiite. You can’t be a boy scout at 6. And you certainly can’t take a decade to complete the requirements for Eagle rank.

The Eagle Scout service project would have to be pre-approved before proceeding. And anything homo would have been nipped in the bud.

This is a total fabrication.

This young Scout failed to learn that "gay" is the descriptive of a psycho-social sexual "orentation" (disposition) and overt behavior pattern....

There are no "gay" genes or traced genetic deficiencies...

There are no "gay" hair follicles or other DNA markers that make "gay" a biological identity...

ULTIMATELY (& BIBLICALLY):

Being "gay" is what a person has decided to do....
...and how one chooses to act out their sexual urges...

--IT'S NOT--
...who you really are...

That's all...

I’m guessing this story is somewhat Bouncy, along with a heap of “It’s all about me” liberal victimhood.

I’m a little suspicious of “His Scoutmaster refused to sign off on his project” as well. If the project was completed the Scoutmaster should sign off on the project workbook’s completion form. However, after the project is completed the Scoutmaster would then - as part of the standard requirements for Eagle - have a Scoutmaster conference with the Scout to review his progress and accomplishments to that point and then sign off that the Scout fulfills the Scout Oath, Law and Spirit in his daily life on the Eagle Scout Rank application. THAT I can see the Scoutmaster in this case would not sign.

I have pasted in below the email sent out by our council scout executive on this. It is pretty self explanatory and factually correct as far as I can tell. I understand that this made the Today Show this morning.

We want to let you know that 1 of our Scouts proactively notified his Troop leadership and Eagle Scout Counselor that he does not agree to Scouting’s principle of “Duty to God” and does not meet Scouting’s membership standard on sexual orientation. I want to assure you that the BSA did not proactively ask for this information, but based on his statements, and after discussion with his family he is being informed that he is no longer eligible for membership in Scouting.

As you know, the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members. Representing millions of youth and adult members in diverse communities across the nation, each with a variety of beliefs about this issue, BSA does not have an agenda on this matter, and its membership policy is not meant to be a blanket statement or a social commentary. We recognize there are many different opinions on this issue and that no single policy can accommodate everyone.

Also, a belief in God is the foundation of Scouting’s strong, continuing commitment to encouraging moral, ethical, and spiritual growth. It is the position of the Boy Scouts of America that no 1 can reach their full potential without belief in a higher power. The ideals and principles of “Duty to God” and “reverence” set forth in the Scout Oath and Law are central to the mission of teaching young people to make better choices over their lifetimes.

We will continue to teach our members to treat those with different opinions with courtesy and respect at all times and to adamantly oppose the mistreatment of others based on any perceived difference. Please forward any media inquiries directly to my attention.

The troop in which young Andresen was a member is chartered to Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Moraga, CA. Moraga is a suburb of San Francisco, about 15 miles to the east, on the sunny side of the Berkeley hills. Andresen’s father resigned as assistant Scoutmaster after it was confirmed that Ryan wouldn't receive the award. There is speculation that the charter organization, i.e., the chuch, could step in and cause a ruckus since PCUSA supports ordaining open homosexual pastors and just this year barely fought off changing the church rule on re-defining marriage to be between 2 "people". The website of the charter organization, MV-PCUSA, revealed they're currently in the midst of a Pastor search.

There are standards. He fails to meet the moral one.

Next?
