Skip to comments.From gay members to atheist scouts: The Boy Scouts America deserves
Posted on 01/31/2013 2:04:01 PM PST by barmag25
Thats one small step for tolerance, but one giant leap for states rights. The modified policy would, in effect, kick the can down the road to local sponsors, who could continue the abominable policy of deeming gay teenagers too immoral to participate in Boy Scout activities.
There is no similar step forward for atheists. This modified policy would still require local groups to discriminate against atheists, apparently because the Boy Scout Oath implies that an atheist cant be morally straight unless he can do his duty to God.
Using this twisted logic, a number of courageous and honest atheists have been kicked out of the Scouts for rejecting all supernatural beliefs. Among them was my friend Darrell Lambert, an Eagle Scout, who had been supported by his entire troop.

Should I have put a Barf alert on this?
Declare themselves a ‘church’..............
Only the gay predators should be permitted to enter schools-to-boy scouts and use their conversion therapy to capture a generation willing to let them have their way. sarc
Little has changed with these degenerates since Sodom allowed homosexuals to use children at their pleasure. Note how male homosexuals have infiltrated every organization having a high population of children. Nambla and B4U-Act claim it is all about love and we do it for the children. Think about those icons of the gay community—Dahmer, Jackson, Gacey, Sandusky and 100s of priests and boy scout leaders caught raping young boys. And what do we do?—we allow them now to come into grade schools, the BSA and preach their lifestyle to children from 1st grade on. Are we really this uncivilized and backward?
Form their own dang group.....
Not this crap again.
Look, go start your own group. Might I recommend the “Rump Rangers” or “Gay Scouts” or “Rainbow Troop” or some such. Leave the BSA alone. We don’t want your perversion anywhere near our kids.
Atheists, I believe, are seriously mistaken in their non-belief. However, the key point about an atheist boy is that he doesn’t believe in a deity or any such thing (Buddhists don’t, exactly, either.)
The key, indeed the only, point about a “gay” boy or man is that he wants to have anal sex with the other troop members. THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM.
Seems to me he can’t be “morally straight” unless he’s straight, either.
Some things just aren’t that complicated.
Once you admit you were wrong (even a little bit) you have forfeited your defense. Democrats understand this, which is why they yield NO ground on abortion!
It’s a (Sam Kennison voice) CHRISTIAN organization for BOYS. Sheesh. What’s so controversial about that? It also allows participation by all faiths (Judaism, Islamic, Mormon, etc), but not outright Satanic or atheistic. There are plenty of secular originations and programs.
Does the girls scouts allow homosexuals as well?
Do the girls scouts allow homosexuals as well?
As long as chastity is promoted in the Scouts it shouldn’t be a problem, at least as far as the boys are concerned. None of them are married, none of them are supposed to be having sex. I guess there could be an argument about masturbation, and whether one would consider a boy who regularly masturbates to be sexually impure, but that hasn’t been brought up yet for discussion. The Scout troop my son is in expects absoulte chastity.
The Washington Post offers no reciprocity and yet they would benefit immensely from having some Christians and straight people around the company.
Soviet Atheists Atrocities
Atheists today are embarrassed by the Soviet Atheist atrocities.So they claim communists did not kill in the name of atheism.
But the truth is that all those communist dictators were self proclaimed atheists that massacred millions of religious people.
Screw off, WP. keep your wickedness to yourself, and stop shoving it down our throats. As for the BSA, I am confidant that the two outspoken advocates of making the BSA the BSofNAMBLA will lose to the dozens others that are on the board who know what real values are and what fake “diversity” is.
It’s a self-barfing article from the WaCompost.
At the time I was a Scout, I didn't know what heterosexual meant much less homosexual. Because nobody needs to know. If you're a homosexual Scout, keep it to yourself. Or get out and form your own org. Nobody's forcing you to be a Scout.
THE BOY SCOUT OATH: On my honor, I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
Time to borrow someone's Logic 101 book, douchebag. The Boy Scout oath pledges to be "morally straight" and to do one's "duty to God." It does not causally link the two. THAT exists only in the mind of the cretin who penned this specious gibberish.
Okay, since all these lefty journalist want to take away the Boy Scouts First Amendment rights of association, then we should take their press rights away and lock them up for treason.
See how simple it is to promote a stupid idea?
Go F yourselves you stupid, left wing nut jobs.
The GSA has been fully-infiltrated and is well-controlled by them, judging by what I’ve heard from former GSA members, and seen on a local level.
The Boy Scouts have every right to exclude those who do not conform to the longstanding tenets of the organization. Calling it 'discrimination' to bar homosexuals from the Scouts is the height of irony when it's painfully obvious why the ban is in place. For atheists, an organization that puts God in the forefront of it's creed would seem to be a place they would never feel comfortable. That the left keeps pushing the Boy Scouts to abandon their own sensible rules for admission and uses the lame 'discrimination' argument while castigating the group all the while simply indicates that they are determined to destroy this fine organization that has done so much good for so many boys over the past 100 years. Obviously, that, alone, is reason enough for the left to despise it and do everything they can to infiltrate and destroy it. I'm confident that, despite a few wimpy board members poor decision, They will fail.
(MAJOR SARCASM ALERT!) We have it on good authority that the Boy Scouts are being pushed by Kevin Jennings to add this new and distinctive badge to the Scout program:
Unfortunately, they caved several years ago. I don't understand why they think it's a good idea to let Sandusky types lead their children...
“Once you admit you were wrong (even a little bit) you have forfeited your defense.”
I saw this same BS when John Paul II yielded on “altar girls”; he left it in the hands of the individual bishops (in an environment where no bishop could survive long without allowing them). I remember when the last bishop that didn’t allow them retired; I believe it is now in 100% of American dioceses, and there is NO WAY to turn that back. These little “priestesses-in-training” are here to stay; no wonder that outside of a few small factions, vocations are down and we are importing foreign clergy/religious. At this point those small factions are the last True Church, and FReepers and other factions will be the last True Americans.
“Do the girls scouts allow homosexuals as well?”
Their creepy silence during this whole debate indicated to me early on that they certainly do (otherwise they would have been targeted). In my area these issues are moot because the scouts (both groups) are quickly disappearing, selling off land and merging groups.
