Gay Scouts come out, rally around teen's Eagle Scout bid
MSNBC ^ | 10/09/2012 | Miranda Leitsinger

Posted on 10/09/2012 6:11:06 PM PDT by caldera599

Matthew Kimball walked away from the Boy Scouts in 2005.

Since he was gay, Kimball knew that his sexual orientation would be at odds with the Boy Scouts of America’s policy banning gay Scouts and leaders. Kimball was both: an Eagle Scout and an assistant Scoutmaster.

Kimball had not revealed his sexual orientation during his Scouting years. But he decided, like a number of other gay Scouts, that he could no longer stay publicly quiet about the organization’s membership policy after learning that Ryan Andresen, a teen from his own Troop 212 in Moraga, Calif., had been denied the Eagle rank last week because he is gay.

“My immediate reaction was frustration with myself, because I felt if I had done what this kid did … he wouldn’t have to be going through this, hopefully,” said Kimball, referring to Andresen’s coming out in July to his troop in a letter.

There's a simple solution to this dilemma...two organizations,the BSA and the PSA (Perverted Scouts of America).Perverts won't be tolerated in the BSA,normal kids and Scout leaders won't be tolerated in the PSA.

This is not an issue when compared with the Presidential election and the fate of this Country - the Country that allows homos to walk freely among us. Though plenty of libs and homos would like it to be, I'm sure.

So some sissy boy who didn't reveal his sexual orientation (thus took a lying oath), is upset because another sissy boy can't be an eagle scout because he's not morally straight as defined by the Boy Scouts.

So what? Doesn't he know that plenty of us have bigger fish to fry?

Romney seems to support freedom. So do I.

If a homo wants to be a homo, I'm fine with it. If a homo wants to “marry” another homo and can find a **cough** preacher that will do it willingly - I'm fine with it.

In either case, I should not be FORCED to endure it, or condone it.

Yeah, the God from Kolob, Melchizedek Mormon Bishop cult leader, and self proclaimed God is all about letting the homosexuals run rampant.

Put scores of them on the bench in Massachusetts and supports the repeal of DADT.

Wake me up when the blue blood country club banker faction of the Washingtonians bothers to do anything about the homosexual problem.

Well, I guess we could add in the fact that their positions on Abortion are pretty similiar as well.

They may be but define "pretty similar."

Then address the number one responsibility of the President and CinC as to the protection and security of our nation regarding our military and foreign relations.

Why in the world would someone want to be in an organization that they know, going in, rejects their lifestyle and they know they cannot, truthfully, live by the group’s code? To destroy it from within (they’d call it changing it for the better)?

My dog licks her butt and I find it disgusting, but if she was running against obama I'd say “well, at least she keeps her butt clean”.

My first choice was not Romney, but I have grown to respect his good qualities and overlook the, well, differences I have with him.

The time for negatives was during the selection process, the time for positives is during the election process.

As he grew into a man who was aware of his Scout oath, and his depraved sexuality, he has had to watch unfold the ugly truth of Jerry “Child Charity” Sandusky hauled off the PSU campus (the “most gay friendly college campus in America”) and into Jail today. Apparently sexual fantasy is oriented towards youths. Apparently the attraction of Scouting had more to do with the Boys of Scouting than the merit badges.

d your viable alternative to Mitt is?

Sorry, I've really never been pragmatic, nor compromising in my conservative principles.

It's more important to me to not offend my Heavenly Father by voting for someone who is ok with both Homosexuality and Abortion, as Mitt Romney is, than to react in fear of Obama.

I'll probably be voting for Tom Hoefling, better known as EternalVigilance here at Freeperdom, since there is nothing offensive to our Lord and Savior in his issue positions, as there is with Mitt Romney and his issue positions.

I'll leave the outcome up to God, and vote my conscience.

Sorry, but I look at the whole man, and I won't react in fear of Obama, but in fear of displeasing my heavenly Father.

Luke 12:5 (KJV)
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Lord.. I could have voted for the guy straight from hell its self. A worker for the devil..

Or I could have voted for the guy who was better for us all but not perfect to move the country in the right direction or at least slowed the decay and allowed us to fight for another day.

But I went with the guy that has no chance of winning and the guy from Hell won.

Square it how you want. It’s a 2 horse race. The one you selected is still in the barn.

19. Can a president order the BSA to admit homosexuals by executive order?

Seems doubtful. Every POTUS has served as the BSA's "Honorary President" since BSA's founding in 1910.

http://www.secularstudents.org/node/2300 President-Elect Obama Asked to Turn Down Boy Scouts of America

On January 13, 2009, BHO was petitioned by dissenters of BSA's membership policy (which forbids open homosexuals and atheists - adult and youth) to renounce his honorific title. He has not done so, to date. He has met with a BSA delegation 4 times now in the White House (once a year - I think always in FEB close to the founding date of BSA) to receive the BSA's annual report which is specified in BSA's national by-laws.

Should BHO be re-elected, I think he will resign as BSA Honorary President. As the title implies, he has no real job responsibility in BSA.

No argument here, I just want to keep my relationship with my Heavenly Father intact.

Voting for a Pro-Abortionist (no matter how he might like to spin it) and a Pro-Gay candidate guarantees that I harm that relationship.

It's the most important thing I have, and I don't intend to lose it.
