The Boy Scouts can go to hell. If you’re a church that supports the Scouts, time to invest your resources elsewhere,

Easy there, muffin. 60 percent of the organization doesn’t want it. 60 percent of the people who voted in Texas do. This isn’t over by a long shot.

Then what's this posting about? "Boy Scouts Approve Plan To Accept Openly Gay Boys"

Sorry, I've seen enough. I hope there's a national revulsion against the Boy Scouts. Won't give them a dime anymore.

After the first lawsuits are filed, they will fold.

Exactly! “For Now”! Slippery Slope is the only way to describe this. Gay men will whine about “wanting to help the boys” and “I have every right to lead these boys as any straight man”, “I can offer a different and important perspective”.

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. Since homosexuality is not a genetic trait but is learned, it can also be unlearned. Perhaps being exposed to normal boys will help those in sin.

I can see many local scout organizations breaking off from the national Council and forming their own gay free troops. This is exactly what happened when the American Lutherans adopted their gay pastor policy. Many churches just split off from the national organization.

Will the Girl Scouts now be allowing heterosexual boys?

How about lesbians trapped in male bodies?

I know of a whole bunch of Southern Baptist Churches in my home state of Oklahoma that sponsored Scout groups. I suspect this will end immediately.

Oh well, I have often thought - even though the previous generations of scouts were honorable - that they were basically secular (at least not sectarian), and it was sort of a conflict of interests. So, this will move the larger evangelical denominations (like Southern Baptists) to move back towards sponsoring their own brand of Scouting...although they will be more religiously focussed that traditional scouting was. Which, depending on one’s view, it could be a good thing.

Gay boys? You mean happy kids? Homosexuality is a behavior at adolescence. We’re talking about young kids here. Homosexual boys is media concocted fantasy, still running with a belief in “born homo” or “homo gene” — coulda woulda shoulda — no facts to back up squat; yet plenty of evidence showing people choosing different lifestyle choices, and chosen identities.

The same kool-aid press that tells us Chaz Bono is a man, despite having female sex glands, you know, ovaries? That is how we tell man and woman apart right, sex glands? The deviant lying media and the kool-aiders can’t differentiate reproductive systems either.

No surprise here, except I'm surprised it took so long.

Nobody in my family was allowed to join the Boy Scouts after a relative had to deal with an attempted homosexual assault from a Scout leader years ago.

Very sad decision, but all this talk about it being the end of the Boy Scouts is ridiculous. The Boy Scouts will soldier on. A few people and organizations will cut off support and pull their kids, but it won’t be enough to make much of a difference. The Boy Scouts are here to stay and will be fine. Heck a majority of the kids probably support the decision since homo is apparently hip now.

Those who practice gross sexual deviance and those who promote it and force the rest of us to "accept" it want to turn Earth in Hell. The good side, or silver lining, is that this is going to make many, many people VERY ANGRY. And righteous anger is exactly the medicine that will cure our ills. Not just anger, and not just being on the side of righteousness, but combined. And not just the cure of the homosexual toxin poisoning our country, but all the other toxins as well.

Anyone wanting on/off either ping list, freepmail me. Both lists, because this homo-toxin has now destroyed an institution that has helped create good MORALLY STRAIGHT character in boys for generations.

Do research on the groups backing scouting’s ‘environmental’ badges/teaching and get back to me with what you learn. Then we can go from there on through the various levels of corruption.

Why not retain the basic organization and just change the name? Same scouts, same leaders, slightly different uniforms and no gays.

That's not likely to work. Any large organization is going to face the same pressures and demands. And Scouting just doesn't have as wide an appeal as it once did. If anything comes along in the future to replace the BSA, it won't just be the same thing run in the same way with a different name.

They basically went with the “new” Mormon perspective on homos: “Let ‘em in”.

No question now the culture has become left-wing on social issues. The 60% vote shows this.

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

Boys can and do bully, and molest other boys. I would not allow my son to join such a group. If they want to form a new organization called ‘Gay Scouts of America’, then fine. But don’t expect me to enroll MY kid in it. As it is, I kept him out of BSA because of known homosexual men having access to young boys.

I’m so disappointed that they caved in. It’s a terrible example to fine scouts out there.

Now, I think they really WILL crumble.

_________________________________________________

My boy scout troop was at my Episcopal Church, but that was back in the 50s.
In the 80s I was senior warden of a very old Episcopal church.
That church went over to the dark side and now has a gay priest.
I not only left the church, I left the whole dam* country.

“While people have different opinions about this policy, we can all agree that kids are better off when they are in Scouting.......”

No we do not. We don’t need junior rump rangers using scouting to further their agenda.

I have just told my wife that in the future when Boy Scouts come to my door to sell their stuff...they are to be told sternly that because of their acceptance of homosexual members...they are to get off my property and not return. In the past, I have always bought stuff from them to support them....NO MORE!

I think what’s going to happen is that people will start asking questions about how and when did a boy under the age of concent figure out he was gay.

I think parents of ‘gay’ boys will still probably avoid scouting, unless, of course, they are the adopted sons of two gay parents.

When that activism starts to root, I think you’ll see a backlash.

I also think the current board is going to end up getting fired.

This is the first shot in the war, not the last.

There was a line from High Plains Drifter that comes to mind:

“Promisin’s one thing, payin’s another.”

Once this hits their pocketbook, I think they’ll take another look.

I would agree with everyone here in saying that the world is getting worse. I guess that’s what has to happen before it ends.

This vote was obviously rigged by their “leadership.” Now watch the real vote take place, which will be the mass exodus of decent, God-fearing families from this organization. So much for “morally straight.” RIP BSA.
