Jewish Scouting leaders vocal on gay inclusion
Jewish Telegraphic Agency ^ | May 9, 2013 | Gil Shefler

Jewish Scouting leaders are taking a vocal role in efforts to pass a historic resolution that would partially lift a ban on gays in the Boy Scouts of America.

In a meeting of the National Jewish Committee on Scouting in February, members voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution lifting the BSA’s longstanding ban on gay members. … The resolution would not change the BSA’s ban on gay adult leaders.

“I am advocating for complete change and inclusiveness,” NJCOS Chairman A.J. Kreimer told JTA this week. “I’m speaking with other people and as an area president, one of 26 in the country, I have advocated for fellow Scouters to do the same.”

The struggle over the BSA’s position on gays has divided the national youth organization at a time when public opinion has grown markedly more accepting of homosexuality. …

Great way for the liberal Jews to increase antisemitism, isn’t it.

A better idea is for all the homes to be welcomed into the ranks of the Jewish Scouts.

Un-Orthodox Jews.

The public accepts prostitutes, alcoholics and drug addicts. This doesn't mean they approve of the lifestyle. Sigh, why are American Jews the most liberal on the planet?

Frankly this is illustrative of the effect a Jewish agenda can have.

Not entirely knocking it. But it can and does go overboard.

Some places do much better without Jewish influences setting an agenda. Boy Scouts is one of them.

Hollywood for example is run by Jewish influences. (I know, I know, but it mostly is)

All gay, all the time.

We need a bit less of that. It is not all wrong, but where it is wrong, it can take over.

I believe the Boy Scouts should be left (exactly) as they are.

This is why Orthodox Jews I know no longer hide their open contempt for liberal JINOs. The comments sections on Jewish websites show an outright civil war.

That’s not a Jewish agenda at all. It’s a liberal agenda without an ounce of Jewishness to it. Having had Jewish parentage on one side of my family, I attest to that and stand by that.

Well ok.

I’m always leery to take on Jewish influences, partially because they are (profoundly) influential in America.

There is a lot good about Jews and I support them for the most part.

However they tend to get involved then take over. I do not want them to take over Boy Scouts.

I want the Boy Scouts to remain exactly as they are.

Okay; that’s veering towards Stormfront/Islamist rhetoric. Don’t conflate Jews and liberals again, please. Liberalism permeates many other peoples too no matter what religion or ethnicity (save, apparently, Islam). I already have enough problems with what the Irish are doing in terms of liberalism, and I do have many Orthodox relatives that have nothing to do with what the liberals of Jewish extraction do.

Sorry as a Boy Scout I will stand my ground on this subject.

Don’t want the criticism?

Then do not go there.

Leave Scouts alone. Period.

Remember when you were a kid and your parents would say, "I don't care if all your friends are doing it. If all your friends were jumping off a bridge and getting killed, would you do it too?"

No difference.

You have no call to stand your ground on “the Joooz”, sorry. Liberals, absolutely. Call them what they are.

Liberal Jews how about.

That a good compromise? That may border on racism, but the truth may also.

There is some generality possible. It is not everything about the subject, and that is the tragedy that Hitler visited on the Jewish people - people are not interested in generality when millions of their brethren and sisters, were murdered.

I get all that, and for the most part agree with the Jewish agenda.

But I will criticise it when it strays into my own.

It is straying into my own territory on this issue, and I will speak up.

Threaten me with racial buzzwords all you like. I am not a racist, but I will also not be cowed into silence.

It occurs to me that with our media, the police, the Politicians giving us a constant drumbeat of “it’s for the children” and we must protect the “children; that the very idea or concept of us putting our children, aka ‘young men” into situations where sexual predators are not only allowed but “celebrated” for diversity’s sake is not only extremely stupid/dumb/idiotic but hazardous on so damn many levels is an insane proposition. The Boy Scouts leadership(s) should fight back and not knuckle down to these chowderheads for if they do because of “Money/Funding” then they Boy Scouts of America is a doomed organization. No conscientious family will risk putting their sons at risk in this manner.

With that being said, I have no doubt that they will capitulate. Such is life... They might as well just shut the whole thing down, it would be so much kinder for the organization to die while fighting for their principles than as an object of ignoble disgrace for compromising on their Core Principles.

And yes I know, that the current proposal is only for admitting openly Gay/homosexual youngsters and not troop leaders. Anyone with a lick of common sense knows that the slippery slope is no longer ahead of the organization, they are sliding down it at full speed. There will be openly Gay/Homosexual Scout within a few years because they will not want to fight anti-discrimination lawsuits over it.

Liberal Jews is exactly what they are.

And what do you perceive a “Jewish agenda” to be? That phrase is too close to “Zionist agenda”.

Isn’t there enough in the Old Testament about sin and homo lifestyle?

Yes there is. Jews without a book I guess.

There are too many liberal Jews nowadays, no matter what country, and especially in Israel; I just read a statement from a liberal Jew on another website who regards Jerusalem Day as a holiday for the country’s so-called “religious right” and not for all Jews.
