A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

Not homo.

Mine ‘s signed by that POS too. But at least I have “earned in the Bi-Centennial Year” stamped on the certificate. That means more to mean than a worthless signature.

So.... he got 400,000 plus online signatures from faggies or faggie enablers?

Now, THAT’s sickening!

Amen!

It was drilled into me at my Eagle Board of Review that once you’re an Eagle, you’re ALWAYS an Eagle. Still live my life with the Scout Oath and Scout Law daily.

Yep - there is a local candidate for City council who was molested in 1989. He got a lot of press last night pointing to the files on the SF ABC news. No discussion about how BSA is trying to protect youth.

Fact is that the mid 80s was a turning point for BSA on this front. What we do today is a vast improvement. One thing that is paramount now - report ANY accusation immediately to both BSA AND appropriate public authorities.

i say DONT give him an Eagle award. Note I am a Scout Master and my Council just avoided being married to the council involved with this stuff a couple weeks ago.

Fact is that if he had NOT come out as gay, he would have received the award. The official policy on such things is literally don’t ask - don’t tell. We don’t go looking for it, and will only enforce the rules if the youth insists on informing us in some fashion that he is gay/athiest.

The BSA is right to turn him down, but I feel sorry for him because he is confused. If he just was dealing with unwanted homosexual ideation, he could have dealt with it privately with counseling (spiritual or psychological) or at least without self-advertising. But to publically announce oneself as "gay" is to announce, not just an inward leaning, but an outward advocacy.

"Gay" denotes a lot: not just "orientation" (which is, in itself, unbidden) but also a kind of outward identification, a social agenda, a politics, a self-selected community, even the cultivation of a certain set of expressions, styles and behaviors which constitute a subculture. That part of it is chosen; and the BSA has a right to say, "But not with us."

Would the Boy Scouts, say, have to OK a female award recipien or leader? One who made a point of saying, "Along with my other qualificatgions, I'm also interested in sexual relations with males?" And if not, why should they have to accept a male who says the same?

If nothing else, it sounds like they have a case for denying him the Eagle Award since he didn’t complete the requirements before his 18th birthday. That’s a hard and fast rule. Even homos don’t get to break it.

He probably wants to be a Scout leader himself one day, so he can take little boys off into the woods.

Homosexuals target boys who are troubled.

The really sneaky ones actually establish "charitable foundations" for troubled boys.
These foundations become their personal farm system for young new homos.

...let’s just enjoy the irony or hypocrisy that homosexuals are pushing to loosen the rules of perverts in the BSA in the same week that the BSA files of abuse are released to the public.

This is by design. They are trying to infiltrate while at the same time trying to destroy the BSA. Of course, the two goals are identical, as is the Leftist strategy.

Kids growing up without the security of a traditional family can be desperately needy. The Sandusky victims are certainly classic examples.

Why are there two different sexes anyway?
Nature seems very unfair.
It will take Obama more than four years to fix that.

Why don’t homosexuals establish their own organizations instead of trying to soil traditional ones?

One, they're lazy. Building up an organization is work. They'd much rather take one over, than build up a new one.

Two, it's much more fun discountenancing people you hate, than going off by yourself to seek like-minded company. More fun to drive them out of their own temples, and point the finger and call them outcasts and outlaws.

That's what we're talking about here.

(Article, quoting beefing gay)
"It went about as expected," the 18-year-old said of the meeting with Alan T. Young, the program director for the Council, which oversees Andresen's troop. "I did get a chance to ask what I wanted. I didn't choose my sexuality, just like he didn't choose his. So I asked what made me any less adequate than him. He didn't answer. That says a lot."


Actually, it speaks more to the Scoutmaster's politeness in refusing to engage your dishonest argle-bargle, begged questions, and false premises. But carry on. You'll have plenty of gay shoulders to cry on, as long as you're young and good-looking.

Kinda makes me wonder if Ryan helped this other kid come out. That’s why Scouts do not need young perverts in their ranks..

Queers recruit. Among men, only a quarter recruit, but they recruit relentlessly, amorally, and with brutally instrumental pragmatism. They're moral savages. And they complain about us -- there's your first big clue.

Doesn’t this “gay” teen realize how much TROUBLE the Boy Scouts have gotten into for hiring sodomites into the organization?

Homosexuals seem to have a hard time accepting “no” for an answer.
