I was a Boy Scout, my son is an Eagle Scout.
I do not think scouting is sexual.
My son, who was declared by his Sgt. Major, to be the smartest man in the Army was not the most popular kid in his class, but his peers in the scouts made him his reluctant choice for their patrol and Sr. patrol leader. He was kind of a geek, but I don’t think his behavior was a sexual thing.
My wife designates all of her United Way contributions to the Boy Scouts. I bought two packages of Scout Fair tickets today. If the Boy Scouts seek to normalize homosexual behavior, our family will not support scouting.
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.
