My daughter is in American Heritage Girls, the conservative alternative to the Boy Scouts. The girls can go to a few things like Camporee, but have to sleep separate to ensure that there is no risk of sexual interaction.
If boys and girls are separate to protect them, so too should homosexuals and boys be separate.
As Mark Davis, a talk show host, has said, there should be no risk of sexual attraction between adults and children on a campout - regardless of the gender or sexual orientation of those attending.
Incidentally, some of The “Blue on Green” incidents in Afghanistan are due to US soldiers teasing the Afghanis about being gay. The Afghan culture mirrors the Greek culture when Alexander conquered them 2500 years ago. Male leaders use boys as sex puppets, but they deny that they are homosexual.
I’m afraid of this reliance on an online survey / contact us form. Too easily spammed to give a “go homo” vote. And not enough to get a true opinion of the parents whose children are at risk.
They need to ask?
Pull the plug now.
Okay BSA, let me help you out here: tell these queers to go to H*ll!
Homosexuality has nothing whatsoever to do with being a Scout! Nothing! What difference does it make if Johnny's fellow Scouts know that he's Gay? Nothing...except of course making them uncomfortable in certain situations. This is nothing more than the radical, militant, Homosexuals trying to shove their perversion down the throats of young boys!
These Queers have two options as I see it:
1) Start their own Queer Scouting Program
2) Join and keep their perversion to themselves.
It's the radical, militant, Homosexual Community who are being intolerant here!
The fact that the BSA are still kicking this can down the road is very troubling to me. I've got a bad feeling their going to cave to these degenerate Sodomites. If the BSA do cave, they deserve a speedy demise!
Same here, class of 19xx. We won Dale vs. BSA in 2000, so there is no legal reason to forfeit the member’s right to associate with whom they please, as indicated by entry requirements.
The BSA is a private organization with a 100-year old heritage. The BSA doesn’t have to be a government-mandated social experiment (like the US military has become).
Anyone on the national council who votes for this is putting money ahead of integrity and the protection of children.
I don’t think scouting is “sexual” either, but the Scouting Handbook definitely addresses issues of a sexual nature, including masturbation.
Are you prepared to see the Scouting Handbook for boys re-written to accomodate the acceptance of homosexual copulation practices? I wretch just thinking about it...
Adolescents are at a critical time in their sexual development — do we want openly homosexual men to be their role models?
While you’re considering it, what about atheists? Are you prepared to see the Scout Oath and Scout Law re-written to accomodate atheism?
If atheism is accepted into Scouting then what moral foundation remains?
I don’t know about you, but I say HELL NO to the admission of both homosexuals and atheists in the BSA.
I’m a Scoutmaster, founder of a troop, father of two Scouts, one of whom just got approved for his Eagle project tonight. My opinion is to change nothing and to keep this organization just as it is. There are other “inclusive” scouting type organizations. Utter failures with little active participation.
That said, the leaders of Scouts are idiots if they are asking for input from anyone.
They need to put out a very simple two question survey
1. Do you believe BSA should allow open homosexual leaders?
2. What is your Boy Scout Leader Identification Number?
Everyone else, I’m sorry but your opinion does not count.
have some balls and stick to a principle.
don’t try to give yourself cover or an excuse to change your mind based on what others tell you.
my God have some courage for your convictions! dammit!!!
Thanks for the link. Hopefully we will flood their inbox.
The same thing happened with the DADT bogus survey. The first ones were an overwhelming NO and the one that they claimed was positive was selective. It was only done by invitation only and not sent to all the troops like all the other useless surveys they send out.
I received the survey from BSA headquarters.
Here’s the url
That is a very negative and unhelpful attitude. Take some time and take the survey. Express yur opinion where it will be meaningful
I just got done filling it out. Read the questions carefully cause htey shift a few around to make sure you’re reading and not just filling them out. Lot’s of room for opinions. And they got mine...again.
Please do not change your organization’s stance in relation to allowing sexuality to intrude on the lives of young Scouts. Any sort of sexually reoated crap should be kept out of Scouting as much as possible.
Most gay males were molested as kids, this is how they recruit. Do you think its a good ideas to send little, impressionable boys camping overnight in the woods with a pedophile on a recruitment trip?
If this changes, I will really pray for the demise of the BSA.
Seems some of the board members have a problem with ‘mentally awake’ too.
Still, there is a way that the BSA can ‘cut the baby in half’ on this one:
If you look at this as ‘dealing with multiple genders’, then you could say, “OK, we’ll let them into the venturing program, where everyone is 14 or older. We already allow two genders into that program, a third isn’t going to make a difference.”
Is that “put not your trust in Princes”?
