Outrage over idea of Scouts accepting homosexuals
WND ^ | January 30, 2013 | Dave Tombers

'Big Gay' now 'biggest, baddest, boldest bully on the block'

Big Pharma and Big Tobacco each have had their day in the sun, and may again sometime, but one pro-family group says there’s another increasingly aggressive and powerful juggernaut at play in America: “Big Gay.”

Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for the American Family Association, told WND in an interview, “‘Big Gay’ has become the biggest, baddest, boldest bully on the block.”

He was reacting to revelations that the Boy Scouts of America are considering giving in to the homosexual lobby and opening their doors to homosexual scouts and leaders.

Fischer said it goes beyond the single organization giving in.

“This is a critically important issue,” he said. “Our hope is that the Boy Scouts will hear from so many Americans of good will that they will strengthen their resolve to stand up to the lobby that is using an aggressive agenda to get their way.”

In a call to action on the American Family website, which reaches millions of supporters, pro-family supporters are urged to contact the Boy Scouts before a final decision is made.

“Next week, the Boy Scouts of America will decide on whether it will keep a longstanding policy of not allowing homosexuals to serve as volunteer leaders, or to change that policy and allow open homosexuals to participate in the scouting program,” the statement reads.

“If the BSA departs from its policies on allowing homosexual scoutmasters and boys in the program, it will destroy the legitimacy and the security of this iconic institution.”

“While news articles conclude the latter as a forgone conclusion, the final decision has not been made,” the group said.

It is time we make our voices into actions. Pull out all of your children and collapse the organization. It was a symbol of American youth and like the military and other American symbols it is becoming clear that they are a threat to thier idiology. Anything that they have thier eye on as the next point to attack close it down before they have a chance to get headlines. Would you have your child go on a camping trip in the wilderness with a group of homosexual men? nuff sed

Piss on ‘em! Pull your boys outta that queer-lovin’ group and take them camping, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, whatever. Whatever the Scouts does, parents and/or dads and/or moms can do the same damn thing. Invite other boys and their parents to go with you. Form your own damn ‘troop’. Parents - you don’t need this group to influence your kids - do it yourself!

The new BSA will become the Brown-shirted SA to fulfill Obama’s dream of the National Civilian Security Force he so desires!

They already have the correct color shirt with the only thing missing is the proper indoctrination and sodomization!

It will become more militant and look even more fabulous!

If the scouts go gay I predict you will see its numbers dwindle to a fraction of its current size but it will receive massive amounts of liberal corporate and government money. The moocher class will be encouraged to turn over their kids to it and it will become nothing more than another community organizing social welfare and indoctrination program. Bank on it.

Once gay scout leaders are legalized, these guys will come out of the woodwork and “volunteer”. Denial of their applications will result in lawsuits; acceptance of them will result in parents pulling their kids. It will be the death knell of the organization, which is probably the agenda behind the agenda.

The troop my son will join is sponsored by our parish. There will be no openly gay scouts or leaders in our troop...I have been told that by leaders of that troop (and the affiliated Cub Scout troop).

The involvement levels in our area are so high, we would survive (and thrive) if it were necessary to start a new organization. There are 5 Boy Scout troops in our 'burb, and the percentage of boys attaining Eagle Scout is off the charts (20% vs the national average of <5%).

Faggots need to stay out of Boy Scouts. It is a conservative, traditional, private organization and they need to stand tall and strong against the faggot bully lobby. The only reason they want to get into scouting is to get near your children, to corrupt them (and worse) while they are still young and impressionable. Scouting has no place within it for moral and sexual deviants.

Eagle Scout (1969), 12 years as a Scouter, consistent contributor to the local Council: All to be undone if this decision is made.

No more contributions.

Scouter uniform will be packed away.

Eagle metal will be returned to BSA National.

I have a very heavy heart over this.

Gays can go try to start their own boy clubs or stick to their community theater classes. They should leave the scouts alone.

Thats a married homo. Heterosexual men don’t want to sodomize other males of any age.

The board meeting is next Wednesday. That’s where the decision is to be made.

That this is even being discussed is untenable.

This is the BSA BS press release:

Boy Scouts of America
Monday, Jan. 28, 2013
Attributable to: Deron Smith, Director of Public Relations

“For more than 100 years, Scouting’s focus has been on working together to deliver the nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training. Scouting has always been in an ongoing dialogue with the Scouting family to determine what is in the best interest of the organization and the young people we serve.

“Currently, the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national membership restriction regarding sexual orientation. This would mean there would no longer be any national policy regarding sexual orientation, and the chartered organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting would accept membership and select leaders consistent with each organization’s mission, principles, or religious beliefs. BSA members and parents would be able to choose a local unit that best meets the needs of their families.

“The policy change under discussion would allow the religious, civic, or educational organizations that oversee and deliver Scouting to determine how to address this issue. The Boy Scouts would not, under any circumstances, dictate a position to units, members, or parents. Under this proposed policy, the BSA would not require any chartered organization to act in ways inconsistent with that organization’s mission, principles, or religious beliefs.”

###

divide and conquer. will homosexualized units have to disclose they allow homosexuals? will parents have a choice?

CALL THE SCOUTS AND LET THEM KNOW YOUR OUTRAGE:

Gays can go try to start their own boy clubs

Years ago there was some noise about their starting something they called the Rainbow Scouts but it evaporated. I guess parents weren't willing to put tbeir male children's anuses on the LGBT sacrificial altar.

But now times have changed and some lib parents are more open minded about their boys bending over for diversity.

Any parent signing junior up for something called rainbow scouts has got to be insane and should be charged with child endangerment. What a crazy world we live in!

I was correct in my post. It is married men who are boinking the boy scouts since gays cannot be part of the boy scouts for now....let’s hope it stays that way.

Agreed, as the mother of a scout and wife of a scoutmaster.
