I have called, emailed and have signed the petition. If I could, I would visit in person the home of my closest board member.

Done. This would be a huge and irreversible mistake. The end of a great tradition.

is this one of those email collection sites?

the time is too late for “petitions”, it is BEST to call the scouting.org directly and to call the board members DIRECTLY.

keeping the pressure on their phones DIRECTLY.

I have signed the petition, emailed, posted on FB, and called about 10 people listed on the national council. I hate to say this but I believe the fix is in. I think they have already decided to go gay. The reason I believe this is because of the numbers I called I was not able to talk to anone. I believe they are ducking calls. I got voice mails and a few secretaries saying that they were no longer taking comments on that matter and one secretary told me that the person was no long on the council. Like I said, I think it’s a done deal but I’m not giving up yet.

The very fact that the BSA is checking the political winds to determine if sexual deviants should be allowed access to young boys in the BSA’s charge shows the organization is adrift. Write the letters and make the calls to fight this latest round of cultural rot but make no mistake that the only way to save the BSA is to get rid of the morally bankrupt cowards on the board who proposed this garbage in the first place.

Could be on Wed, I read on another thread that it might be tomorrow. I would think that the folks in Texas would have the date correct.

It takes the whole idea of healthy and godly male leadership and chucks it into the trash for the illusions imparted through a bent ritual involving penises and anuses. So what if 99% of troops stay nonhomo, they are going to have to put up with the loud and proud ones that are at jamborees and such. The world’s going insane. I hope every nonhomo scout in the country gives them a piece of their mind.

....the only way to save the BSA is to get rid of the morally bankrupt cowards on the board who proposed this garbage in the first place.

The San Francisco correspondent for CBS News overnight outlined a very powerful squeeze on BSA finances at the level of the boards of several corporate sponsors.

Liberals and homo/metrosexuals on the boards of e.g. IBM and a half-dozen other major corporate sponsors have told the BSA board they must capitulate, surrender, now, 100%, no half-measures or reservations, to the Homosexual Movement, or their support will be cut off like electricity.

It's a called play, guys, using power-gays on liberal-dominated boards to steer the corporate sponsors and deploy them against the BSA.

The BSA's stoutest backers have turned on them, at the prompting of catamites and degenerates on their boards.

It would be better if the BSA leadership took the organization through a bankruptcy workout, or even had to close its doors forever, than to give the straight-haters the satisfaction of taking such a proud banner captive.

Better that everyone understand that the homosexual movement destroyed the BSA out of hatred and spite for having stood their ground against one of the most benighted and befouled movements in human history.

I'm concerned about the "pragmatic businessman" types on the BSA board, because now it's about symbolism, and they have to realize that their job now -- like Barrett Travis at the Alamo -- is to uphold an ideal in the face of evil men, not to seek a compromise or to "preserve the organization".

It is better to be morally straight than a moral liar, and they must make that clear now, no matter what.

BTW, did you notice the _Resident Impostor's fulsome endorsement of queers in the Boy Scouts?

No doubting which side he's on now. If it's bent, he's for it.

I don’t doubt you at all but it is better for the BSA to be morally straight and poor than to be awash in blood money. The BSA is a non-profit so preserving the organization should be a secondary concern to protecting the membership. Why this is even a dilemma for the BSA trustees makes me question the leadership.

Exactly. Which makes it so very discouraging that they're vacillating at all -- it means there's some counsel being offered, possibly by a mole, an Iscariot, that "being sensible" and putting organization considerations ahead of the Scouts' welfare is being pushed as a way to secure collapse and surrender of the board to the cultural-affinity attack that is being brought against them by people on the corporate boards.
