Needless to say, the progressives would be horrified at the idea of heterosexual adult males being Girl Scoutmasters, and yet how is a gay Boy Scoutmaster any different - an adult in authority over a young person who represents the focus of his sexual orientation.
And of course those same progressives who mock the Catholic church over the activities of the pedophile priests will mock the Boy Scouts over the activities of pedophile scoutmasters (whom the progressives forced the Scouts to accept!).
Hmmmm.... Should the Boy Scouts let homosexual scout leaders take little boys off into the woods, or shouldn’t they?
Hmmm... What a conundrum!
The libs claim that two same-sex partners make the ideal parents, unlike (what they call) the failed Mom-dad model.
Its just too bad that nature discriminates by not allowing them natural conseption and childbirth.
isnt their something the courts can do about that to ‘even the playing field’?
Its only a “controversy” if they make it one.
Just say NO. The firmer you are, the less the leftists and homos will try and sway you.
As the Boy Scouts of America ponder whether to allow grown men with a behavioral disorder that causes them center their lives around a desire sodomize each other to be Scout leaders,
There fixed it. NOW ask the question.
Please don’t cave . . . protect your scouts . . . please ignore these sodomites and sodomite lovers. Please.
As the father of a 13-year-old scout, I know where I stand on this issue. Not interested in any gay leadership of scout troops, thanks.
seems like the homosexuals were going to come out with this pro-abuse group regardless and the MSM was doing its best propaganda effort.
What are any homosexuals or their ilk doing around any scout?
Just because I'm male, I should not be disqualified.
This is the key. It is no secret that there are gay men in leadership positions in scouts. However, it is somewhat secretive, in that they don't run around teaching homosexuality, or openly declaring their right to do what they want in scouting.
There are also gay scouts. I can remember no time in scouting where a scout has ever been asked what their sexual preference was. We don't talk about it, it is not part of the scouting lore or teaching. We don't talk about it, we don't teach kids how to use condoms, or deal with the issues of homosexuality.
But we are told that to not openly support gayness is to make gays "2nd class citizens". Screw that. I was not ever considered to be a center for a basketball team, or a goalie in soccer, or a quarterback in football. Does that make me a "2nd-class citizen"? There were a whole range of scholarships that were closed to my daughter, because she was not the right race, or the right gender-association. Does that make her a 2nd-class citizen? My son could not be in the girl scouts -- is he 2nd-class now?
There are so many characteristics of individuals, that if we tried to make sure that NONE of those characteristics were "discriminated against", we'd never really be able to accomplish anything. Currently there is an entire class of Boy Scout activity my son cannot participate in (which included the Jamboree) because he simply is too huge for his size, and doesn't meet the "BMI" index. This even though he had no trouble doing a 4-day 185-mile backpacking bike trek, and a 10-day wilderness Alaskan rafting trip.
The risk is real, but if the scouts needed to be "all-inclusive", they would have to cancel these activities for ALL scouts, in order to not be "excluding" scouts who were at risk if they were allowed to participate.
We had an openly gay politician RUNNING FOR OFFICE as an openly gay democrat, who as part of his campaign bragged about being a cub scout pack leader. So it seems that being gay is NOT really something that keeps you from being a scout leader.
I was scouting in the 50's and 60's and ;
1, A queer wouldn't even be in the parish my scout membership based,
2, My father, and any father I can remember from back then, would'a, at the least, beat the faggot to within an inch of his life if he ever tried to be in an official capacity around boys,
3, A couple of those fathers would'a just shot him.
50 years ... so much has happened.
I donated to the Scouts last year....got an e-mail survey last week with a link...asked me all sorts of “hypothetical” questions...what if a sodomite were a Scout in a church where sodomy was celebrated, would that be okay?
I said no.
The final question had to do with whether I would give money again if the BSA celebrated sodomy. No was my emphatic answer.
The Boy Scouts of America are being bullied and threatened by the Politically Correct, NAMBLIA, “ Gay Carpetbaggers” etc. to jettison their values....JUST A MINUTE!!!! Straight men and boys have rights also and don’t forget it. The Boy Scouts of America does not have to entertain Gay Rights to remain viable....being Straight is also a Right!
True words indeed. I would like to add what I had stated on a previous post dealing with this matter. The homosexual might be aware of the career ruining incidents of other homosexuals. He may be determined to avoid giving in to his perverted desires. If he is among others, in the general run of society, there is always a deterrent of sorts.
Once completely alone and in charge for hours at a time, even days, the temptation is thus increased ten fold. It only makes sense imho. That is why the courts forbid perverts to frequent playgrounds and other areas, where there are kids.
only 100 years of tradition?
we’re already having a hard time fighting the lesbians and gays on marriage which has a 1000’s of years of tradition.
we need some help here, maybe some new HIV that works on women. (/sarc)
The republican candidate for president in 2012, has supported homosexual Scout masters for 20 years, and restated it during the campaign.
The BSA should created a branch for GAYS... the G/TSA: The Gay Transgendered Scouts of Anti-Americanism. (The Liberals might not like it, thou)
This really p*sses me off. Excuse the language but the question should never have been asked.
