Boy Scouts succumbing to faggotry? Good riddance. Actually kids, there’s another organization that’s been around since the founding which is in need of membership with more relevant skills, more challenges, and forges men for the future of our Constitution and Republic.

Say hello to the Constitutional Militia!

well I suppose were should try to look at the bright side - like, now that Maddow boy from MSNBC will finally be able to join the boy scouts. And at the rate they’re going, before long Cwissy Matthews will be able to become a scoutmaster

Tell the leaders. I doubt the boys themselves had much if any say in the matter.

Why not the “Gay Scouts of America” and leave the scouting organizations alone? (What the heck is the problem with these people?)

IMHO

“The only possible good that may come of this is that the homosexual boys will be deprogrammed of their deviancy by good Christian Conservative scout leaders. “

Any scout leader brave enough to even try that will find himself the target of multiple lawsuits from the ACLU.

Can openly straight boys join the Girl Scouts?

What would be the difference?

and what happens after there are endless reports of gay boy scouts hitting on other scouts? Sexual assault?

The number of parents suing the BSA will be through the roof.
No child should be subject to this type of filth.

Thus ends Scouting. The goal of progressives everywhere. This has little to do with gays, everything to do with enforcing widespread moral decay. Gays are just one way to bring down an organization.

Boys at that age are very much aware of things like this, and NO ONE will want to be in the "Gay Scouts," which is what this fine organization will now be called on the playground.

Fortunately, my son has moved on from Scouting after aging out a few years ago. Unfortunately, it will not exist for my grandsons whenever they come along.

“The only possible good that may come of this is that the homosexual boys will be deprogrammed of their deviancy by good Christian Conservative scout leaders. Admittedly, that’s a real stretch but it could be an opportunity for a number of the local organizations to educate those boys on the dangers and sinfulness of sodomy.”

While I applaud your optimism and desire to do good - and save souls. I must be frank and tell you this WILL NOT HAPPEN. Any leader that attempts this will be sued into poverty. No, it is better for the various Evangelical Christian Denominations to form strong “scout-like” groups. Some may even want to cooperate in doing this...if they can agree on what the left and right bounds should be.

They can go to hell. But they want to take the kids with them.

Kids are not sexual. They are kids. Damn those deviants for trying to change that.

No! All the hours I spent working for the scouts! All the hours I spent involved with the Episcopal church! And the gays took over both. Before I was ambivalent toward them. But now they have taken away TWO 9 of my cherished institutions. I am no longer ambivalent...I do not like these people and intend to display my disgust for them at any encounter.

Our neighbor, who we’ve known since high school, lost their son in a tornado about 5 years ago. I always backed the boys scouts, but wonder now if I should. I don’t understand these people who give in to peer pressure. How can they teach their kids to stand up for what’s right, if they don’t themselves?

Morphing into the Obama Youth Brigade. Unfortunately, I’m not kidding. Gut the Boy Scouts of moral people and federalize it - pour in tons of money and eventually force kids into it - get them away from evil crazy spiritual rapist Christians.

All it will take is one large gay boy with raging hormones overpowering a smaller one, and then maybe they will get it.

Or like Penn State they will cover it up.

FReepers who denigrate gay marriage polls saying they do not reflect actual beliefs are wrong — the country has gone insanely liberal.

Seems to have happened overnight, but it actually dates back to the 1960s.

Wayne Perry is the national director of the BSA.
Wayne Perry is a MORMAN.
The Morman Church came out a few days ago and said they recommended the ban be lifted.
The Morman Church sponsors more BS troups than any other
religious organization in the country.
It made not a bit of difference that members of Boy Scouts
of America voted to retain the ban by 62% a few days ago.

The vote to fix the ban was set in stone when the queer-loving Wayne Perry was made national director.

If anyone does not think he controlled the Morman side of things they are living on another planet.

He did not give a a damn what the members of the scouts had to say. HIS BOARD OF DIRECTORS voted to let the fags in.

Do not be surprised if we find out that Wayne Perry is a big time supporter of the the Faggot-in-chief, Barry Sinclair.

Gay groups will aggressively “monitor” the BOy Scouts to make sure the policies are implemented fairly and equitably.

Which means,a thousand law suits and crippling legal fees.

The next step is the gays will demand that openly gay men and teens can become leaders, because to deny that would be discriminatory.

The gays win either way now.

They get to destroy a 103 year old staple of American society that actually benefits boys and teens and help them assume masculine traits and skills, and become better members of society.

On the other hand, while they destroy it, they get to come in and sample the delicacies and make new converts to the homo lifestyle.

Parents have to take their kids out now to protect them.Later, it will be discriminatory to do that.

Churches have to sever their sponsorship of troops, because they are another target for the homo agenda.

The homos played chess while everyone was playing checkers.

This is a very sad day for America. The gays will not stop until they have dominated the Scouts, and turned it into the image of themselves.

Anyone who doesn’t understand that is seriously deluded.

The ruling by secret ballot at a national convention in Dallas means that mothers like Jennifer Tyrrell, who is a lesbian, will still be excluded from the Boy Scouts.

Tyrrell was let go as an Ohio den leader of her 8-year-old son Cruz's Cub Scout pack last year because she was gay, but she applauds what she sees as a "temporary" policy.

"It's a great first step, and the fact that they've gone to the Supreme Court to defend the right to discriminate shows the progress we've made," the 33-year-old mother of four told ABCNews.com.

What a paragon of motherhood. /sarc

Any scoutmaster or kid that remains in this new perverted incarnation of the Homo Scouts can frankly all go burn in hell. And I’m going to say exactly that to the next person I ever see donning the uniform... that they are disgrace to everything the organization once stood for.

Never remotely thought this before, because of its horrid VietNam connotations... but seriously, I could truly SPIT on the Boy Scouts right now. You degenerate scumbags.

I think the American people as a whole strongly favor this change in Scout policy. I don’t think very many will leave the organization, but even more may enter Scouting. The American people are liberally predictable.

Basically your typical homosexual boy scout is not able to be supervised in an outdoor setting, or around younger boys.

Adult leaders will abandon Scouting.

End of story.

Why not the “Gay Scouts of America” and leave the scouting organizations alone?

Because that wasn't the point. They wanted to conquer the BSA. There needs to be a rebellion. Every BSA chapter that opposes this decision should refuse to comply.
